    If everything works in my favor, which it seems to be doing so far, I'll have a van by the end of the week.

    When the Jambo gets closer, I'll start a "ride offered" thread to let people know where I am, and what direction I'll be coming from.

    I'm definitely down to pick some folks up if they're not too far out of the way.

    If someone could come up with a sewing machine and tough tread and some Cuban fiber sheets, I could sew up some bags for people? Maybe we could get together on a backpack design? I used to sew auto upholstery... I think I remember how.. To make a Bear Bag we would need some clips and webbing as well.. Just an idea..

    @Will Wood Try making a new thread in the Jamboree Sub-forum! Someone out there might be able to fill that request and it would be neat to make some bags.

    I'm going to try my damndest to get there this year. I'd be coming from flagstaff, and I think I have 1 more seat if someone needs a ride over.

    The Library has a "free stuff" table and there's also a trade circle that takes place somewhere in the Slabs. I had an extra tent last year that I ended up giving away.
