Still good music. Is that you playing that Jon? Now a little talking in the background.

I'm hearing one lo-fi channel of a stereo broadcast of some not very good music (although it's hard to tell) with occasional audio from the salt.

Sounds like key board typing.

Thanks, Mark.  I switched from some straight talk to an SLC progressive indie station - and there's a nice guitar tune playing.  I guess it's okay.

In the meantime -- Eva is heading toward the line so I've put the FM radio down by the 'puter so you can hear that play by play.  Remember that it's only an occasional bit of audio - but whatever we hear out here you'll hear where you are.

And yes, you can also hear my typing.

Slim, i hear your radio chatter as well as KRCL in Salt Lake. Somebody needs to take them some C&W CDs.

Tom, I agree that it's confusing.  I'm trying to offer up what I see, and I know that there's a lot of stress going around out there.  That's why I posted just a bit of information about the course and access road work that I saw going on this morning.  I'll stay away and wait for others to tell all of us what's what -- 'til I go out there again.

If you read a post here and you're not sure if it's correct information - well, that's the beauty/problem of this Forum.  I don't try to edit what is posted.  If I see something that I know is wrong I can correct it -- but as the "editor" I don't remove stuff that's wrong unless I see it as a liability that might bring legal issues.  I read 'em and let you folks do the same.  Ask me and I'll try to get the true scoop for you and the rest of us.

Thanks Jon,

I have been off the computer since my last post around 24 hrs ago and I am still confused so maybe you can help. Since then the post on Cook's Facebook page had been deleted that said the event would be on the rain dates. And to add to the confusion LSL posted it is just basically a test and tune, but you have changed the name of the event on this thread and now it sound like it is an official meet?

I guess I need an update on what the heck is going on so I am not confused. Is Land Speed Louise's post correct or has something changed again?  :? :? :? :? :? :? :? :? :?

Thanks for any help,

Tom G.
Asking questions is one's only way of getting answers. As a young boy I was always taught that there is no such thing as a stupid question. It suggests that the quest for knowledge includes failure, and that just because one person may know less than others they should not be afraid to ask rather than pretend they already know. In many cases multiple people may not know but are too afraid to ask the "stupid question"; the one who asks the question may in fact be doing a service to those around them.

Eva on the course. Coming through loud and clear.
Well, it used to be Los Angeles . . . 50 miles north of Fresno now.
Just remember . . . It isn't life or death.
