Well as always life is a bit busy, I see the big august meet never happened, at least that I saw, so I am putting out the feelers for a little meet in September.

I'm eyeing sunday the 21st around 4pm, were we end up really depends on the weather. I am all for hitting up cabelas again if the weather turns ugly.

Well let me see what people think and mabey we can get something going.

I'm interested in joining some folks locally, but I would really like to have a meetup in Pierce county. Main reason for this is so that I can get to know people that are more local to me that I can get to know better and maybe start hanging around on a regular basis besides just at a once monthly meeting. A secondary reason would be to ease any costs I would have on transportation as my car/van is in the "shop" to get some repairs/maintenance work done and I'm not sure when the work will be completed. I am currently borrowing my father's car till he gets back (he's a long haul truck driver). I would much rather not use his car for non essential purposes. He didn't have to let me borrow his car so I would rather not abuse his generosity.

Anyhow, I am looking forward to meeting some new people as well as getting acquainted with people I have already met but haven't seen in many months. Lets not let this meetup go down the drain.

It's looking right now like the weather will cooperate so we can have one last hurray at the park(Tumwater historical park at the old brewery in olympia.)..assuming you don't all look at your GPS and get lost again LOL. assuming it doesn't change:

Its real easy to get to from I-5 take the 101 exit, take the first exit to the thurston county courthouse(turn right) , drive past the courthouse down the big hill to the waterfront. make a right drive under I-5 its the first driveway on the left past the freeway onramp.

I'm going with the potluck kinda setup from last time. I got the utencils and will have ice and a cooler along with some munchies so bring yourselves and a snack.

I'll update again later.

Wish more folks would chime in and show support for this South Sound Meet...

This is the end of the season,, could be the last Picnic of the year, Be there or be square!

Well,,,

Sooo,,, I was so tired out from the 3rd Saturday and all the shopping on the way home
that I napped for 6 hours after I got in the house,, then
I couldnt sleep some more before the South Sound meet, soooo I just stayed up..

Left the house early so I could go to the subway and get some samiches to bring to share, then
hit the road for the 50 mile trip to the park,,, boy was I keyed up!
Got into a fast driving fest with a truck on the way,, We Drove Very fast!
I hit 105 mph!! not kph,,, got there in 55 minutes.

Schlepnier was there and then Golddigger14 showed up,,, and that was IT, 3 of us!
Sooo we had plenty of food, conversation... about Everything,, And a middle east history lesson!
I know, weird huh!!

Sooo I was really tired when I got home, and I didnt even have to shop,
but so keyed up I still havent layed down to get some sleep yet.

I was a good day,,,, didnt even have to use my AK....
