I should. Will probably take some of the cookers out. The biggest problem though is that you'd be in the car with the three kids for the whole ride and it can get hairy. I'm hoping to leave around 3ish on Friday.

Now I got to see if WATG George can bring me his lucky chili pot to borrow.

Yep, it was probably a good thing that the grass was too long to actually get going but we were trying to keep entertained out on that cold mountain.
