    I will be there the 29th and 30th. I can't make the week days of the Bash, but I will be there the week before (15th - 23rd). If anyone will be around maybe we can get a pre-Bash going. Looks like it will be a good time. See you there.

    26 bucks unless you are handicapped. So I'd probably drink the first day and then get your tags at a discount the following morning.

    well, you might have to show up just so someone IS drinking. Alot of talk over near the bushes about many actually fishing and such. Better just bring handwarmers, no need for firewood if everyone is waist deep in the fricken water.

    Planning on showing up Thursday night, stay until Sunday afternoon. I'm sure I read it here somewhere..."I fear no Beer!"

    I'm planing on going, might bring my brother if nobody minds. Only thing is he's dead...figured he'd want to do a roadie to the coast. It's not like a weekend at Bernie's thing, he's cremated and in a little black plastic box, so he's not like a stiff or a walking zombie. But back in the day he liked to party down, he never did fish much though cept' sit on the bank soaking a worm and downing a few beers.
    Been dealing with the VA for months now with there paperwork, would like to send him off with the military honor's and gun salute, taps and flag ceremony. But until then he's been sitting here on my dresser just as well do something with him.
    Seat still open on any boat? He could sit on my lap.

    And he had a helluva sense of humor too so it's not like it's any disrespect.

    Some low-life SOB stole the tarp and tarp rope I had set up at the #5 site at Cottonwood last weekend, while I was away from camp fishing. :mad::mad:

    I usually camp at Oxbow, the Upper Hoh, or Bear Creek, but there was so much snow on the ground (more than I've ever seen before), it was hard to find a bare spot, or an open campground. The DNR has Bear Creek listed as 'open' on their website, but it was closed when I drove past last Sunday.

    Have fun, everyone. I gotta be in Indianapolis that week. bawling:

    Actually, even if I could get over there, I would be very afraid, hanging out with all you hooligans.....:D

    So, we just gonna go with the flow when it comes to camping? Only problem about Bear Creek is it's a bit aways from the Hoh's campgrounds. Loved the place though, camped there TONS of times growing up. Maybe start with Oxbow and work our way up to Willoughby and then Minnie Peterson on the Hoh. If all else fails, backtrack down to Cottonwoods. I'll have my camper, so I can park about anywhere and put the jackstands down. I'll just need to be close if I'm to be the camp cook that weekend. :) I'll have some new goodies from my prostaff program. Hopefully will have them tested out before I head down that way. I'll bring some food to go along with it, but as we get closer will probably need to get a list of foods people need to bring.

    "Bernie" doesn't sound like he drinks much anymore, so yeah, you can ride in the boat

    I got a big ol Cabelas 2000 person guide tent that we can use to pass out in
