Big Bear California Run - Hanna Flat (Toyota vs Dodge)
« on: June 14, 2006, 02:50:12 PM »
I figure we will arrive sometime Friday and leave sometime Sunday. Indicate if you would like to arrive a day early on Thursday or leave a day later on Monday. Or is there some other configuration of days that is better? Indicate if there are other folks you would like to bring or invite. Is Rahn anywhere in the state? I wonder if Mike T. will have his rig put back together? At least provide initial head/vehicle counts. We are allowed 8 people and 1 vehicle per camp site for $18 per night. We can pay an extra $5 per vehicle after we arrive. Toyotas have to pay extra because they suck. ;D Don't forget to bring my case of beer. ;D Oh, and you have to shut your pie holes between 10pm and 6am... ;D

Post up and let's get this thing reserved and on the calender. Damn skippy!

Didn't I say mid August would be good?  I must have been sleepy cause I forgot I already have this stuff going on.

8/19 Niece's Wedding
8/26 Cruise to Mexico

I voted 8/12 but could probably make 8/5 also.

Map of Hanna Flat campground (partial map)

I think that I stayed in 60 last time?  As I recall the sites in the lower right corner were fairly nice.

I voted for any of the above. Hell, you go to Big Bear and I'll take the cruise to Mexico. I don't mind helping out a friend. ;D I'm glad to see you are anxious to 'get it on' sooner than later. For a second there, I thought you were trying to back out and forfeit the bet. ;D

Don't want to be to far away either.  We don't want Jed having any "accidents".

I wasn't going to name any names, but I'd like to give Jed plenty of space to doo doo what he's got to doo doo. ;D

I've been informed by my boss that our cruise is Mon-Thurs so the 26th is available for me.
I will have just returned from Mexico so it wouldn't be the best choice for me but if ends up being the best for others I can do it.

 I voted for the later. I have a boat load of work to do on my junk. It will give me more time. The hardest part is figuring out where to have my accident. Let's see ......Hiltmans sleeping bag or Earl's sleeping bag.... ???.........................................................................................................................

I guess it's Bill's turn to vote. I was worried about having four choices for roughly four people... I know what you mean about more time Jed, but it never 'all' gets done. :P The sooner the better for the Dodge guys.

I'm not sure what would work for me or if I can go. I'm trying to figure out if and when I'm having surgery so I may or may not be available. I'll do my best though. Can't be the 26th for me at all. MY bosses birthday is that weekend.

Earl and Jed, stop right there..... It's knee surgery, not a sex change, spine transplant or anything else you jokers were going to suggest. Thanks for your support fellas  :-*

Maybe you can have the surgery performed by Jed and Earl at Big Bear.  :P Keep us posted as your plans unfold Bill. Hopefully, it's arthoscopic(sp?)...

Ahhh....  knee surgery.  As much time as you spend on them I'm surprised that they have lasted this long. :o  Hope all goes well and you can get back on your knee's asap. ;D

 Yeah, I have to agree with you there! I guess even the latest high tech knee pads aren't helping our old pal `kneeling Bill'

 PS the sex change was performed by your wife years ago!!


 BTW You asked for it!!!

Awww, come on Bill.  Two days and no response?  I hope I didn't hurt your feelings, but you left that one way to wide open.   ;D  I just hope that you are not stuck on your knees somewhere and can't ask for help.

Sorry, been busy. It would take a lot more than that to hurt my feelings. If I was that easily offended I'd have never made it in my family. We are all a bunch of jokers and NOTHING is off limits with my family. Good training for the real world!  ;D

That being said I am having a hard time laughing about my knee. It's pretty bad. Might be time for a new one. x rays didn't look good at all. Not much left in there to work with. Worst part is the 10 years I've been on limited duties have softened the bones to the point they might not even be able to do a replacement anymore. I'm going to see the best in the biz as soon as the referral is approved (love insurance companies) and we'll see what he has to say. Until then I'll try to laugh  about it :-\  Nothing else seems to help, right? Worse comes to worse I can get cool bionic leg and finally loose some weight! Those things are what, about two pounds? I guess there are easier ways to loose a few pounds, huh?

Now for my official responce.....Good one fellas .........  :(
