Hello everyone! Wagons Ho at 9:00am * * SHARP in Snowville!
We only a few more days until our 4WD field trip Hensley SL Cutoff City of the Rocks. Our leader Roy Tea was wounded doing prep-work on the rail posts-carsonites and had a real nasty fall. He got over 22 stitches in his head! Thankfully, Roy is amazing and a very strong man. I just talked to him, and he's feeling much better and will have the stitches out in a day. Keep him in your thoughts. He's ready 'to roll' and has our field trip guides all printed up. Roy has two great right-hand men with him, Oscar Olson and Gar Elison. Thanks to everyone.
