Summer Campout

Hi All Thanks go out to John Ruiz for the nailing down of a couple of campsites for the wine tasters.

Kathy and I along with Mike and Dede left San Jose around 10:30 on friday morning and arrived at our first destination, Murphys. We sampled several wineries offerings, did a little shopping, walked around town. We then headed up to Arnold to do a little last minute grocery shopping and on to the campout. You see I did promise John R. a couple of very cold beers for staking out a site for us. By the way it was well worth the beers. A good evening campfire was enjoyed. Saturday morning some of us bid farewell to those that were going wheeling. Mike and I tried to catch some fish, but did not have a lot of luck. MIke however did manage to catch one that was cooked up for the Saturday evening potluck. A great evening meal was enjoyed by all. I did enjoy hearing the stories from those that did go wheeling. A special thanks to Loro for representing the Bronco recovery unit on this trip even though it services were not needed this time. Sunday morning back up and goodbyes were said. Mike headed back to the stream with me following about an hour later. About 12:30-1:00, I caught my first fish and with in another 30 minutes, I had 3. It took another hour or so and number 4 was on the stringer following by number 5 within about half and hour. I had caught my limit! We fixed them for dinner that evening and they were very good.

Monday morning Kathy, myself, Mike and Dede said our goodbyes to Tom.

Another very good outing with wonderfull people.

Thanks again, John for a job well done.
