I'm back! And my phone is still broken.....

BC, sorry to tell you, but you've gotten yourself into blasting stuff with dangerous cannons being handled by two 14 year olds who love fire and destruction. :D

Do both of you guys have a certain yes on going? The date's Friday the 6th, unless you can't make it then.
You guys also know how to get to the place, right? And where it is?

BC, I still haven't called the state PD because of my phone, do you think you could?


There's a couple of motels in the town, I think I'll be able to be there on the 6th and the 7th. I'll get ready the night before and will try to be out there at around noon.


Edit:
BC, do you want any vortex blocks or anything?
A-98, tell me if I'm forgetting anything:
5/16" brass brakeline
9/32" brass brakeline
6mm vortex block
1 1/2" acrylic tubing

Edit #2:
Directions to the location, starting at the intersection of El Camino Real and Elm Avenue.


Starting at the intersection of Elm Avenue and El Camino Real.
Go Southwest down Elm until you get to Central Avenue.
Turn left on Central and keep going until you get to a street lined with trees.
Turn right and go along the street lined with trees until there aren't any more trees.
You will have to turn right in a half loop and then follow that road. You should pass a big building on the left.
Keep going straight; do not turn anywhere. Eventually the road will start to turn and go South, stop there.

Dang I was in San Bernardino last week.
I wish I could come but its too far for me, maybe sometime in the future, when I have my own license and resources to go.

BC is an outstanding person , you guys absorb as much info from him you can.

Where does DR live?
I believe somewhere in CA

Although I may have re-brought up the earlier topic, I regret to say I cannot come. I live out in Angels Camp (Calaveras Jumping Frogs anyone?), which is a three hour drive away. on top of that, my grandparents are visiting this week. I'm kinda bumbed since I was so excited about a spud meet. Ah well, there's always next time (Is there a next time? I certainly hope so.)

We can always reschedule it. This is why I picked a date as early as possible in the summer.
Everyone who can possibly go anytime this summer, list the days that you're free and we'll pick a new date.
A-98 and I are free all summer, so we're flexible with whatever timeframe.

A-98, "doing nothing" as in sitting around? Why not sit around up there? 7 weeks will be pretty much the end of everyone's summer, unless some people get out of school really late.

by "doing nothing" i mean no harsh tarrain, or balancing. i dunno what the plot of land is like, but maybe.

i just wish this damn fever would go away. its like 100.8-101.6, but it makes you feel miserable.
