Yes! I managed to get the coodinates!
36.263030, -121.258593

Type the into the search bar for Google Maps, on the Hybrid view. You should be in the "kidney/jelly bean." We'll probably just park right off the road, near the bottom right corner of it, and just shoot from there.

I was thinking "turn left," but meant "turn right." Really glad you posted that map or there may have been some strange reason as to why no one showed up except me.

I'll be arriving there at about 2-4 PM on Friday, staying the night in one of the motels, and then leave sometime in the evening of Saturday.

BC, when will you be getting there?
If you're getting there Saturday and not Friday, I might also come a day later.
So Mike, you wanted
5' of 8" PVC
A vortex block
The SideStrafer

Anything I forgot?

Can everyone get on AIM at around 7ish tonight? If I'm leaving tomorrow, then I need details on when you guys are getting there.


Oh, and I checked my hardware store, BC. I can get propane adapters for $7, so no thanks on that.

Edit:
A final list of what I'm bringing:

3 ghetto guns
Monster combustion
4th of July PB Gun
SideStrafer
Pocket Strafer
2" piston gun
Airsoft grenade
400 psi BB rifle (if I can finish it)
Shell loading gun
Burst Disc mortar
Steel hybrid w/6 foot barrel

5 or 6k .12 g 6mm BBs
15 lbs of spuds
An assload of apples
Spud/apples cutters for 2" and 1.5" Sch 40 barrels

My compressor(?)-I don't have anything to hook up to it, someone should bring an air chuck+QC
Pliers
Pipe wrench
Needlenose pliers
Scissors
Knife (for cutting/rifling)
160 psi bike pump
400 psi shock pump
A tank or two of propane
Miscellaneous parts and pipe
8" PVC

Probably some chips and soda
Hopefully a friend (who knows nothing about spudguns but likes shooting them)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Other stuff we need:

Some form of shade (my mom checked the weather reports and it's bright and sunny, but 90-something degrees)
Generator




That's all I can think of. I'll leave tomorrow, unless both of you are going on Saturday. If that's the case, I'll wait a day.

Nope, never happened. We can try to set another one up sometime, but it's hard when school's going on.
