Thanks for your support, but those toyos are gonna be hard to spank on this trip. There is so much to do and so little time. I think Saturday will be the best day. Maybe we can whoop them on Sunday if they are hung over from Saturday... ;D

So now your plan is to get us drunk and take advantage of us?  :o

I'll bet Earl can't wait to get his camping chairs back. I hope we have room for them. It will probably cost a case of beer each to transport them to Big Bear! ;D

HWY 330 closed
« Reply #84 on: August 05, 2006, 08:57:29 AM »
So Earl, when were you going to tell us that highway 330 is going to be closed or was that just going to be a little surprise for all of us?

State Highway 330 closure information:

August 7 to 20 - Closed to all traffic

August 21 to September 4th - Flagging from 8:00am to 6:00pm (7 days a
week)

September 5 to October 1 - Flagging from 5:30am to 8:30am and 5:30pm to
8:30pm (7 days a week)

I HATE HWY 38 but I can't see Hiltman's dually towing his RC up HWY 18 past the Crestline turn off. That's just scary.

Oops, I didn't even think of you guys. :-[  Actually this is a new development.  They were supposed to be doing the escorts/flagging thing during the entire project.  Now that the contractor has actually shown up onsite they must have found something to change their minds.

So your choices are 18 or 38.  I'd still prefer the 18 myself.  Don't know why the dually wouldn't make it....  too wide or not enough power?  There are twisty curves on both routes, sure there is a narrow part just after the Crestline cut off [this area is actually refered to as "The Narrows" even by Caltrans :o]  but I've seen trucks/trailers go through there.  Just take your time and use the damn turnouts you slow flatlander fawks!

What's the rule of thumb, turn out when you have 50 or so cars behind you? ;D

Campfires?
« Reply #90 on: August 07, 2006, 07:08:43 PM »
Does anyone know if we can or cannot have a campfire up there? If not this will really suck.

OK, since nobdy seemed to give a crap about this I called them. We are OK to have a campfire. Yeehaw! It would just be sad for us to be standing around BS'ing all night without a fire.

BTW, anyone bringing air? My york compressor is on the other motor and I'm having a really tough time converting the 1968 V twin on the 440.

I have collected a complete A/C for a 440 out of a truck and plan on doing a on-board air conversion also. If you figure it out ,please let us know.

A little birdie told me that Bill has on board air... I'm really wishing I had voted for a later week... I guess the good news is that we are all doing 6 months of work in one month... Or is it? ;D I'm looking forward to drinking many brews, regardless of who's buying them. Later all!
