    Absolutely! That's why I'm wondering about the 9 a.m. listed. Maybe he just meant that the breakfast start time?

    Yes, that's my understanding. If I go, I think 8:00-8:15 roll time will get us there and in line at serving time.

    8 am start means I have to leave the house around 6:30. I'm a definite waffler.

    It would be fun to see how the experimental forest made out after the Station fire

    The Mt Wilson Toll Road wasn't affected, as far as I could see when I rode it a few months ago. The experimental forest is off Glendora Ridge Road - unless there's another one I don't know about. Which is quite possible.

    In 1892,Henninger was visited by T. P. Lukens and R. J. Busch, who started the very first experimental reforestation in California at Henninger Flats. Since 1928, the flats have been used as a high elevation forest nursery by the Los Angeles County Fire Department. I used to backpack up there and camp in the mature pines. But they are all in rows

    The concern with this event is that rain is forecast on that day. :unsure:

    I guess I can climb up there in my rain gear. :eek:

    But I'll need a flapjack shaped like a snake. :D

    Hey, at least you won. If it doesn't fit your lady then find a nice gal to give it to.

    I'm actually wearing it right now. My chest hair is poking through the fabric and the zipper is screaming for mercy but you know what? I kind of like it....

    Rain wasn't all that bad but it was a little cold standing around waiting for the raffle, of course I won nothing but the money does go to a great cause. Spent some time talking to @SnakeCharmer and @Luis, always a good time at the MWBA pancake breakfast
