Does it make a really deep, resonant hoot when you blow across the top?




Nope...not unless you drink it all and the bottle is empty.

This baby is full!

Stayed late...arrived late too.





Yep, that was a very breif visit Brad. Glad we could at least say hi as we were leaving. Johnny and I wished we had stayed as the weather ended up being pretty good.

I almost said August, Brad. It looks bone dry.





Yep, that was the Aug. SP I hosted.

The compound of one well-known denizen. I never did find out what the little round multi-colored umbrella was for...

Will you be driving in or dropping in, Steve? (I'll gladly pick you up at the air field.) Will you be bringing a spare tent this year?




Thanks Mike - I've decided that it's more fun to drive. By the time I get a car at the Dalles, then drive to the site, the total time is almost the same as driving. I have to load, unload, reload, etc. And the airport at Goldendale has too much gravel - it almost destroyed my prop when I was there two years ago.

I might be driving a new rig - I've decided it's time for a minivan!

I'll try to post some pics. It depends on the quality in which they were taken.CN doesn't like my phone pics. Ok it says they are too large. Darn it. I had Shane next to that 7" AP refractor.

I love my Sienna. It works very well for star parties - including sleeping in using a cot.

We have missed this one the last two years. If work schedules allow, we will be there this year.

I am buying a portable gas grill for sure this year so I only need to go to town for shrimp egg rolls and breakfast. The Chinese place in town makes some great shrimp egg rolls but, I am not a fan of the rest of their food.
I know I said I was getting the grill last year but, I went on a gear buying spree and didn't get it. I need a new camp coffee pot too. I let someone borrow mine and they melted it :-(

Anyone thinking about trying a May trip (weather permitting)?

Terrific!

Yes, I'd like to take Minnow down during the May new moon weekend (or maybe later) and leave it for the season but I've made no definite plans. I wouldn't order up a honey bucket.

I remember when we had our first star party there, in a late May, that our friend's dog dish froze all the way to the bottom -- you've been warned!

I put in for Thursday and Friday off. Last year I missed the best night and I need the extra day to shift my sleep schedule for late night observing.

Anyone else going to come Thursday night?

Too early to say for sure, but there's a good chance.
