I‚Äôm not sure anyone else is writing this up, so I thought I‚Äôd throw something out there‚Ä¶

I ‚Äď like Darren Rabago ‚Äď will have to cop to having a near and dear place in my heart for my long tenure in attending Operation Shore Patrol over many years. Starting my 2nd year in the Tamers – which means that was about 1998 when I started ‚Äúwheeling‚ÄĚ (oh is that what I thought it was?) a 1982 J-10 Jeep pickup (too big, too pretty‚Ä¶.)

Showed up early at the Verlot Ranger Station, right around 8AM. If you want to beat Joe, you have to be there a half hour to an hour early. LOL! Ranger Jon came over to make sure we had all we needed and to let us know that between Coal Creek and Deer Creek could use some attention due to the amount of people from the previous weekend and to thank us for the help. By 9 am we ended up having 12 people total.

Oh, what a triumph of our recent club expedition has turned out to be! As the illustrious leader of the run, I recount the events of our fateful journey, blissfully unaware of my own lack of expertise, while the rest of the group gallantly steered our way to glory.

This is a must do event. The people are friendly, the Trails are fun and the raffle is good. Cabin Fever takes place in the Northern Idaho town of Kellog. We booked a hotel at the Silver Valley hotel which has reasonable rates. We have actually stayed there before. Dan from the Tamers and I changed a cam positioning sensor in the back parking lot. Not a fun project on a trip but thanks to Dan we knocked it out fast. Thankfully no Engine code of death for this trip.

So we decided to call this a club run even though there were just the two vehicles. Jeremy and Noni in their CJ7 and Tammy and Dave in our LJ all camped at or near Sadie Creek for the weekend and though the club was invited seems like no one else could make it which was too bad.¬†
