    Read thread number 263. I get tired of typing the same info over and over. I only type with one finger on each hand. So after a while my two fingers get tired. :rofl::rofl:

    Buck, yes you have a seat in the driftboat. Fishdontcare, you have the second (as in rearseat). Could do two side by side, but better front and back in a driftboat when it's flyfisherman. My boat won't be pretty. Checked my schedule, and won't have time to do most of the work to it. But will have it fishable at least.

    I should be there either late Thursday night or sometime on Friday. I have Friday off, just found out today, so I'm good to go. Thinking of doing a float trip with just my steelheader to scout it out for the driftboat. I'd rather know what I'm coming down with the driftboat then what I've heard.

    Thanks again fishdontcare for the sams club giftcard. Will help on buying the food. Figured I can do a money jar when I get there. Will pickup some stuff for breakfasts and dinner. Figured the big dinner will be Saturday night.

    I'm planning on picking up some of the maple cured bacon, that's for sure. Maybe a bunch of frozen hashbrowns, few dozen eggs, etc. Biggest cost will be buying the meat for the smoker.

    It appears the artist formerly known as the Very Grouchy Old Man will arrive the 26th and be there through the 28th or 29th to entertain us all with ragging on Mumbles. There is a likelyhood that I'll still bring Jim a bottle of Jim Beam, a small one, a pint, he does not like it in fifths...just in case he has fallen off the wagon or needs a little something to make it through the muscle pain from laughing his ass off.

    I'll be fishing the Hoh on the 24th - 26th so it looks like I will miss meeting a lot of our attendees.

    I've been watching craigslist for a small camp trailer to rent for the Oxbow stay. Otherwise, I'll be hanging out in the back end of a green Toyota 4Runner. Far too long since enjoying a brew by the camp fire after a day on the river.

    Dry fire wood is probably scarce there abouts, don't you think? I'll bring some dry alder and an axe.

    Always good to bring wood. I'll try and toss some wood in the driftboat. Not sure how much stuff I'll have. But have my hitchauler, so can toss that in and still tow the driftboat. Toss my camp chef stuff on the hitchauler.

    I can bring a bunch of wood, but you can never have to much. I remember a quote from the Cowlitz Party, "It's not a real fire unless you can see it from space."

    LOL Islander. What a tic. What Cowlitz Party? One from here, or have you been to one of the Cowtilla's? I know we used to say that, until they banned the camp fires.

    Thanks for those who are putting money up front. Helps buying up stuff. I'm planning on buying a bulk bag of taters and onions (gonna do fresh french fries and onion rings), ribs, ribeyes, etc. Will make a faster float though for me on Saturday. Can leave the smoker unattended for a few hours, but do have to be back in time to do work with it. I'll load the smoker with lots of wood to last most of the day. Just don't want the steaks or ribs to get overdone.

    Any other suggestions for food? I plan on buying bulk frozen hashbrowns (easy to toss on my flattops and cook up, with fresh onion and maybe garlic of course), tons of eggs, bacon, maybe some sausage (may make some fresh SOS one day), then of course other misc. Let me know if there's anything in particular you want. Hopefully I'll have my waffle maker come in, so I can do those one morning. :)

    It was the last WFF Cowlitz Party. Several years back, everyone had a great time.:beer2:

    That one did me in. It took me two days to get better after a night of partying. Two kegs and more to drink than you could shake a stick at. But it was fun.

    I seem to do this at all the get togethers. Drink and then don't fish.

    Really looking forward to the Hoh get-together. Still looking for someone to tow my driftboat out for me. So, if your going out via the Edmonds ferry. And you want a seat in a boat any time you want, PM me. I am heading out on Monday, back on Sunday.
