    10/22 will work for me.

    Wendy will be there physically but not in spirit. She'll be off shopping at the outlets and Pier1.

    Hmmm... There's the Los Padres National Forest near here...

    And I'm assuming we can just shoot anywhere we want (except at people) in the National Forest, so that might be good... Camp 'n' Shoot.

    Or, there's a few lake/recreation areas around here (like the campsite we stayed at last time).

    We COULD do just a repeat of last time, but I like the idea of being able to do whatever we want, no ROs, etc.

    Los Padres Nat'l Forest looks good.

    They're spread out up and down the central coast.

    Let's plan to camp in the SLO region and not towards Goleta.

    You know it!

    10/22 looks clear, so pencil me in. But I'll have a lot of balls in the air around that time. That's a juggling reference, btw.

    (So the 1AHSLCCS&BBQ is delayed, then?)

    I might add that as long as I get it on the calendar before something else pops up, pretty much any weekend will work for me.

    Camping in the National Forest... who's got a fire permit. I mean, I bet that all if not most of us can make a fire by rubbing two fireflies together, but it won't be leegal if we don't have a fire permit.

    Permits, we don't need no steenking permits!!! :D

    Hmm, well, we only need one person to have a fire permit- I think in all fairness it should be someone besides me. :D

    What do they cost? Where and how would I obtain one?

    The last time I got a fire permit was via a BLM ranger. She was doing booth duty at a Sportsmen Show over in Pleasanton, and I just filled out the form, took the mini-test and got the fire permit. Unfortunately, the fire permits have an expiration date, that seems to me a bit too short.

    FIRE RESTRICTIONS NOW IN EFFECT

    In response to increased fire danger, Los Padres National Forest officials imposed additional fire restrictions throughout the forest as of June 12.

    Fire restrictions affect the use of campfires, stoves, smoking materials and internal combustion engines, and recreational target shooting. The restrictions will remain in effect until fire season ends, probably in late autumn.

    Geez... limiting recreational target shooting... its not like we are shooting muzzleloaders with lots of paper wadding, or steel core bullets at rocks.

    And they say we can't shoot at water either. :fire:

    "Now, folks, as we look over here to the doppler radar, you can really see the heavy government regulation jet stream, coming down from the north. Now if you look over here, that's going to combine with the annual fire danger drifting up from southern California, forming major piss clouds over the region of 45R, Combat-Wombat, Skunkabilly, and Average Guy's parade. That's weather for Action News at 6, now back to Wendy at the news desk."

    What we need to find is a BLM ranger that likes to shoot with THRers.

    The good thing is that since we would have BLM ranger representation, we should be fine, especially if he/she works in that area.
    The bad thing is that since BLM ranger pay is so low, an off-duty BLM ranger is prolly doing security guard duty at a mall someplace in order to supplement his/her pay.

    Anyone able to do a weekend in early Nov? I spoke with a firefigher this week and he stated that real reason for the fire permitt is so that fire department knows who is in the area if a fire starts....interesting....

    Early Nov. looks fine for me. Does that mean the fire season would be over?
