Also 15 minutes wait each way at the rock slide...if you are wanting the names of hotels, motels, inns, and bug hostiles in my area...email me and I will send them to you....listed them on here a couple of times but they were removed....I will even send phone numbers....

    You can also count me in for bringing with me about 30 Brownies. Do you need a check now or can we pay upon arrival?

    May I suggest you post a deadlind date for the $15 fee. That way you'll know if you have enough $ in time to cancel anything if necessary.

    Lets make it simple:

    For Turkey day:
    *RSVP required
    *$15.00 per person per day for food, music and port a potties
    *Have a deep fryer for turkeys, bring it?
    *Can you bake pies? HELP!
    *Pot luck...bring food, BUT let me know what you are bringing.

    For the Weekend
    *Very limited space in my house...ladies only and first come first get.
    *Plenty of places for your tents...bathrooms are an issue
    *KOA one mile down the road
    *Bug Hostel three miles up the road
    *Hotels in town, want to share room costs...post here for that.
    *Guys...Empty backside? Let us know.
    *Ladies, need a ride? Let us know
    *May have to hook up for rides from here, and not from home.

    *Can I bring my kids?
    ***Yeah, but they are your responsiblity, and this is a large party with a lot of roudy adults, and a lot of drinking, no doubt...so think about what that and what they may be exposed to, and remember, we are rural...there is no real entertainment, like kids are used to. There is a skate park in Mariposa. My 19 year old son may be here and Rose's 18 year old daughter will be here, neither babysit.

    *What can I bring?
    ***Right now you tell me what you want to bring and for how many. I will keep track and later if we are lacking I will let you know what we are low on.
    ***Bring you favorite CD
    ***We have one dart board, if you want to bring another...do so.
    ***We also have a rustic horseshoe pit, but if you have a favorite group activity or game, and want to share, bring it.
    ***Seating is on the ground, on straw bails and on crude log benches. If that will not work, bring your own seat.

    Hello, one and all! This is a list of what we have pledged so far:
    6 turkeys
    20 #'s mashed potatoes
    pies [# unknown]
    turkey enchiladas [friday]
    sandwich supplies [enough]
    paper plates
    disposable cups
    charcoal [enough?]
    refried beans [friday]
    tortillas [friday]

    As you can see we have PLENTY of entrees for Thursday, and enough turkey sandwiches for leftovers galore! Also, the menu for Friday will be of a south-of-the-border theme~ so anything along those lines would be very helpful! Breakfasts are impromptu as a function of varying rise times, and will consist of coffee [did you find the big pot yet, Karen?], and either a trip to the local diner or a turkey sandwich. Lunches will also be a "wing-it" affair due to day rides and/or the strength of your hangover.

    What's still needed? More:
    Stuffing/dressing [there's NEVER enough!]
    Dinner rolls & butter [Parkay?]
    Canned veggies- grn beans & corn
    Cranberry Sauce
    Barbeques & charcoal
    Appetizers- munchies & finger foods

    We have about 30 confirmed attendees, but have received much-needed support money from only two people! If you're coming, please don't wait til the last minute- please help! Send your payment to: Karen~ aka "mountaintrouble"

    Thanks, and see you soon!

    Ok, we have a problem. I HATE dealing with money issues, but have a crisis here.

    I posted a while ago about a band and port a potties. I got a lot of people emailing me saying go for it. They would help with costs... Total cost $1,180.00 for the band for two nights and port a potties for all four days, which I also said in my previous post.

    We figured cost per person, and ask for everyone to send $15 per day that you were staying. We figured that would cover cost of band, port a potties, and any food needed to fill out for two meals a day from what is being brought...not a bad price...even for me. I mean, where can you stay with a bunch of other singles, with enterainment for two nights for that price, and eat two good meals a day on top of that?

    This party started small and has turned into a large event....Which I am really excited about, but cannot afford to fund. It simply outgrew us.

    We have one wonderful lady who has agreed to pay the band up front so that they would book. They required 1/2 down before they would book.

    But, other than that, I have only received a check for $60 and one for $15, plus the $60 I put in for my own share, and nothing else.

    Do you really want the band? Should I cancel them for a night? I need to know ASAP so that we can be fair to them.

    I really have to resolve this soon, please....ASAP.

    I have been talking to these guys for about a week, and they have agreed to play for us. They had to cancel a gig to play us, but were willing...since we sound like so much fun....and I know one of the members of the band.....(do not know if that helped)! Look um up yourselves.....see what you think!

    So excited!!!!!

    And for anyone who is worried, your port a potties will be here....so you are covered....Reserved a double with sink last week.
