Just wanted to let you guys know about some stuff going on in the near future.
Saturday is the first saturday of the month and that means our trip to cars and coffee is in order.
Every Sunday there is a car show for those of us up here in the north-west. It is a lot like Cars and Coffee and I really don’t know that much about it but went to check it out last Sunday it was pretty cool so if Cars and Coffee on eastern is too far for you. There is a car show up here that is similar. It is every sunday from 0700am to 1000am. It is across the street from the Santa Fe Station hotel and casino in the parking lot for Santa Fe Mining company on Rainbow. Was pretty cool so you might want to check it out
On Tuesday December 4, 2012 at 1830 (6:30PM) we have a Motor-In at Lindo Michoacan located at 645 Carnegie Street Henderson, NV. 89052. Come join us for our next stop on our world tour of cuisine. Not only does this restaurant have great food but it is in a great spot also.

*More CAMP SCMC Details
FEES: Group camping is very reasonable so once we know the count we will know exactly how much each tent will cost, we are guessing $15 or less. From what we can tell the pass into the Dixie National Forest is $10 unless you have the park pass. Garrison would like to remind all of the fishermen that if you bring your pole, you should also remember to get a fishing license! You can get one online or near the campground, somewhere. We can get more details for those who request it.
T-Shirts – is anyone interested in a limited edition T-shirt?
Garrison put this on the FB Event page and we’ve included it here as well:
Basic List of supplies
1. A durable shelter device like a tent.
2. A comfortable sleeping bag for a good night’s sleep.
3. An inflatable air mattress or sleeping pad which you should place under the sleeping bag for insulation from the ground for an even better night’s sleep.
4. First aid kit and medications you take.
5. Sufficient food and drinks. Keep those that can spoil frozen in a cooler.
6. Portable stove, pots and pans as well as other cooking and eating utensils.
7. Lanterns and flashlights to light your way.
8. Ropes and cords which you’ll find useful for a variety of purposes.
9. Matches or other fire starters. Matches should be kept in waterproof film canisters.
10. Garbage bags
11. Sufficient clothing.
12. Camera and film.
13. Extra batteries for most of your camping equipment.
14. Garden Gnome because ‘The Instigator’ wants to steal it!!
(once we get the head count we can kind of work together to make sure we have everything we need.)
