Kerry, thanks for being the "organizer". I'll have to see how many days off I can get, but certainly Friday through Sunday.

UPDATE Notice:

I put in the wrong dates...portapotty will be delivered on Wednesday the 28th, and picked up the following week. We will be there late Friday night.

Ok, I'm in.

Kerry, I wouldn't hold it against you if you cancel if not enough give thumbs ups.

Pixie wants to go too. She seems kind of proud of her scar and wants to show it off.

Brad, if it wasn't for a previous enguagement, I wouldn't have had it on the holiday weekend...traffic home sucks, though its not as bad going the "back way" via Yak/90.

Oops.

I just realized that the time period you've set is not the same weekend I've had on my calendar all year. (I put all new moon weekends on my calendar in January.) I'm planning on an astronomy trip the following weekend. I've had your weekend marked off for backpacking. While I may not be backpacking (thanks to a knee injury) I will probably not go to G/dale that weekend. (Now I understand Brad's comment about "not on Labor Day.")

I'll probably go to either G/dale or Brothers S.P. the following weekend, 9/6-9.

I'm still up for the 6-9th. How much would it cost to keep the sani-can left for another week? I suppose they might have to come clean it anyway?

Brad, you could get an answer by calling Bishop Sanitation in Goldendale.

I'm thinking I will do this. Have to finagle a Friday off or at least an early release. Hmmm.....

Still tentative, but I might be able to go Wednesday through Saturday. I think Sunday & Monday definitely out for me.

The following weekend would be way more doable for me. The 2nd is Labor Day and I have it off (it's by b-day too), but already have plans for that weekend.

Kerry,

The sani-can from Bishop Sanitation (509-773-4707) is the same price for up to 28 days as it is for one week. If you order it can you just have them leave it until Sept 11th? Or if you prefer, let me know and I'll order it. If it needs cleaning after your weekend let me know and I'll call in for it to be serviced.

So I guess both weekends are a go. Take your pick, or both.

Brad

If you want to order it, I'll split the cost with you...it will be pretty light use on our weekend...PM me your address and I'll shoot you a check.
