As I recall, the road is something like this:

(The red dot is where we will be... or at least, where we were last time.)

Since Spudtech is down, maybe we should go over the times everyone plans on being there. I myself will arrive at about 1:00pm Friday.

I'm unable to make it, unfortunately. I'll try to make it to next years, though (hopefully sometime in the summer, more free time for people to come).

crashtestdummy was killed when he slammed into a wall doing 90mph in a Ford Torus.

Frank, 100k on the stun gun.
