Has beats in it. :p gack.

If you need to place to crash Tom, our place is open.


Hmmm...how to interpret...A place TO crash would be gracious hospitality. TO place A crash sounds like an offer to be Ground Zero.

Time to google map it. Maybe the Russian spy satellites have a route mapped out. :whistle:


Or maybe we should ask our "black helicopter" buddies?

:ubetcha:

A light rail between Tucson and Phoenix with a station (dark) located at Farnsworth may be the way to go. Have a secondary line between Casa Grande and we can make a quick trip for pizza. :whee:

When I win the lottery. That will be problematic as I'll in all likelyhood move else where and build a big shop with small attached living quarters.

Would be nice to have an easier way to get their with the equipment from either direction.

Plenty of space to fly in with your helicopter (after that lottery win, that is). Mind picking me up on the way?

Thanks. I'll pass that along to the pilot if I come down. :wron:

I'd love to stay Chez Boe again. :cool:

That dust in the pizza would not be very good at all. Think of the enamel erosion!

The optics would be fair well either - if we actually used them and noticed it.

I think we should move the star party to the Pauldin area, have the entire area sodded - the nice thick stuff that takes tent pegs nicely and is a dream to sleep on. Have pads of golf course greens pre-leveled for the scopes and A/C power in underground lines with outlets at each pad.

Not that I've given this a lot of thought. :whistle:

A roach coach would be too cool. Nothing like a breakfast burrito to jump start the morning!

Hmmm...four hour drive for me (no stops), hate to think how far for desertstars. Definitely would need to be multi-nights to make it worth the trip.

How about a wireless access point?

Wait!?! Do you mean to tell me that you can't get a Philly cheesesteak and a Grande Mocha at 1:00 o'clock in the morning at AAMM?

Sheesh! You're really roughin' it. You guys need to steal a page from the TMSP playbook. :poke:

You do have hot showers, right? :grin:

We had a pretty hot meteor shower a couple years back. Is that what you mean?

Roach coaches out here tend to favour the Mexican food (thank goodness too! Scandinavian food would just not cut it) or Tex-Mex. Good stuff. Rule number one: You can not have too much good salsa.

We'll work on the Grande Mocha. But I'm beginning to think you may not be nan enough for an Arizona star party - complete with a Border Patrol raid. :)

Why do think we have such a large field? Without showers we can spread out and keep our personal hygiene habit - well, personal. :)

Who could resist that?!? :D Those BP guys must have some decent spotting scopes. :grin:

When I was down there last winter, from Kitts Peak west to Yuma the BP was thicker than skeeters in a Minnesota summer. :p
