Am I the only one that hasn't packed a thing? My husband will buy food and drinks. I got a request for those bikes and they are in the car. Maybe it's time to make a list.

I can't wait to see your smiling faces. Lucky, your whole face. (Ok guys, keep those crass remarks to yourself.) Camping calls for decisions. I settled on Kahlua and Budweiser.

Oh Ratty, I can't wait to see you too!

As far as packing, I'm about where you are. I'm off work at 3 today so I'll do all the things this evening.

I waded in the lake last time I was there. It was cool enough that I chose not to try swimming -- and I'm very fond of swimming. Rafting sounds like a good idea, though.

Hey Hey, Lucky's daughter here.

She just texted me saying she just turned off onto Bowman Lake Rd.

Hmm... early bird special I guess.

Anyway, Tyler and I will be leaving Reno around 530 ish. See you all there :D

I know all of the real party animals are already at The Hof. I plan on blowing in (not that any of you can see this because you can't get the internet at Yggy's compound) around noon tomorrow with three pizzas and a bottle of absinthe. See you soon!

Next year....if all goes well, I'll be moving to Reno in Nov. and a lot closer in. Not to mention not dealing with all the crap that comes with agreeing to sell your house and move...

Just got home from The Hof Party! It was great seeing everyone again and the weather couldn't have been better. Bowman Lake could stand to be about 10 degrees (or even 15) warmer, but what the hell. It was a lousy place for a diet, that's for damn sure. And sobriety pretty much was left in the dust as well.

WHEEEEEEEE! slothy shade listener back from the Hof. Some fishing but no catching, this time. Thanks to all the wonderful people who make it so fun! Thanks to ygmir for offering such a paradise and for all the work he's done to make it a top flight campground also. Thanks for indulging my musical preferences, and don't ever be afraid to offer some of your own. Testing new playa gear in a clean camping environment is a treat. All the food was lovely as ever, Piney's baked peaches and toasted marshmallows were my favorite. Doc's wood fired oven pizza was a great success.

What a fantastic weekend! Thank you so very much, Yggy, for sharing your paradise with us!

All the cool kids were there... almost....
That can be interpreted either as almost all the cool kids, or almost all there (in the head). I think both apply.

I'll have a day to recuperate at Elorrum's, then it's back to AZ, to get ready for the end of August, which is creeping up on us faster by the day.

Bowman Lake was slightly nippy, yes, at 59 1/2 degrees Fahrenheit, measured 60 feet out from the shore.
Of course, it was a balmy 60 F if you swam within 6 inches of the shore.
I may not have a cell phone, but by golly I have a pool thermometer. :mrgreen:

Next year I just might organize some sort of swimming challenge. :P

Well, that was fun. Is there always too much food & booze? Thank you Iggy for providing a wonderful weekend retreat. Your place has the the restorative values of a spa. It was good to see all of you. Next up...see you on playa.

I forgot to mention on my way out, less than a mile after the road becomes paved again, I came across a brown bear lumbering down the road. I slowed and grabbed my phone to take a picture of it but by the time I had it out he had jumped into the bushes off to the right and disappeared. So yes, there absolutely are bears out there.

Maybe we should lock our food in the car. I know some people should wash the food, (marshmellow) off before they hit the sack.
