Have the sankey pulled out of the barn and hooked up to the Perentie. Ready to roll when Raub shows up.
He's doing one of his epic all night drives to my place from South Florida.

Ok - it absolutely pouring at the MAR. But luckily, inside our rain soaked little shelter - we are pouring, too.

We have a little firewood on the site - but none of it is covered. That means it is wet.

The good thing is that this rain should pass by Thursday and we should be clear for Friday and Saturday.

I would bring the wet wood... once the fire starts the wet wood will burn fine.

No wood delivered. Ralf Sarek has a load here for his Sarek Autowerkes sponsored Friday night campfire. There is plenty laying about as well.

I'll bring a chain saw. We can cut up some of the dead fall lying around.
Sankey hooked to the Perentie ready to go. Waiting for Raub to show up, he got caught in rush hour @ Charlotte this morning and it added hours to his trip.

If you're not using a log as a structural device, then you're doing it wrong.
