Stocking up the firewood as we speak, doing small remodel plenty of scrap wood. Like Keith said shaping up to be a good event, can't wait to meet all the new people and share good times. Only one word of advise bring BEER! there is always more than enough food at our campsite, #36.
Jay, no excuses this yr.
Good loyd - I'd love to make it down, but since I won't win furthest intrepid tripper ... Ha!
Third week of school... Hmmm... And me still rolling my 292+K '88 Toyota... fingers crossed.
Either way - Eat some delicious nutritious carrots for me...
you west coasters get to have all the fun.
sounds like a great event that maybe one day ill be able to attend.
Well....maybe we west coasters initiate all the fun.
It ain't hard, you should try it. Pick a beach, a time, a date... you never know how far people will travel to show up if they know about it in advance.
Swaylock's late night wheeling and dealling......That Warvel Perimeter Stringer blank is now a 5'6' fish with a bamboo skin....My friend loves it...Thanks all...Thanks Lavarat...Thanks Rooster.
There was a keg in that car too....Thanks John....
this thread has me so pumped!...
Balsa, looking forward to meeting you. if you need help getting to/from the airport in S.F. or anything else i can do, let me know.
Pandanus, i have a 5 man tent and an air mattress you're welcome to. finding a place to park it won't be a problem. 4/3 wetsuit with booties is a good idea.
Right on McDing you're gonna have a blast!
my wife and baby will be there this year. they should have come last year... i think my wife is more amped on it than me.
we bought this with the trip in mind:
just gotta get racks and build an over-storage platform for a bed in the back...
and, Tim, if you're gonna be there all week, i just may try to finegal that too. previous years have been too short for sure. can't wait to see all of you!
OK, the dice has been thrown... I will be landing in LAX on 09/20 at 19.05 PM and going back to France from SF on 09/27 at 15.30 PM...
Feeling excited like a kid.
Last minute info: my friend Stéphane (the one I made a few boards for) decided he would come with me. Do you think you can endure TWO frenchies at the same time?
Chrisp-----Those Dodges are great surf vechicles. Balsa ---Let me or any of these guys know what you need. Maybe you can sqeeze in a surf in Santa Cruz on your way to SFO. Lowel PS maybe in the Basque tradition I'll bring some lamb chops for the bar-b.
That which can be assorted without evidence was read in an illegal magazine.
right on McDing... we picked it up for $600. runs strong... gonna get it ready for some trips this summer. woo hoo!
are you in Santa Cruz?
here's some pics from '07:
Chrisp-------------I'm currently working in the valley (and I mean the Big Valley). I may be in Oregon by the time summer starts. I'm not sure. I'm waiting for word on a job down here that would keep me here thru the summer and would finish up just a few days before the Plaskett Gathering. I came over from Maui last may and was going to stay in OR but needed to make better money so came down here. I lived in SC thru the'80's--'90's. Good deal on the van. Somebody link me to reservations for Plaskett. Been there but never stayed there. I'll be bringing my pickup/camper set up. I'll also bring an extra tent incase someone needs it. Anybody that's just floating can porbably grab a meal at my site as I'll probaly be grillin' something every nite. Price of said meal; A couple o' Coronas Lowel
