Since you already started a MoJam thread, I 'm happy to inform everyone that they just put a MOJAM Facebook page up yesterday so that everyone can keep up with what's happening for the 20th anniversary this year.  It's officially July 19-21, but most of us come early and stay late.  :)     :BB

I've talked to Bob and we should do a white wood/yellow wood shoot off part 2! Thats what got mojam started in the first place.

Maybe a pair shoot matching a first timer with an "old guy/gal", against other like pairs?  Or an apple shoot? 
How does one get to the range off I-70?  I know where that is >:D!  Hope to see ya'all in July!

I love this idea Patrick!!! It would be interesting to see how bows have evolved, performance wise, over the last twenty years.  Plus, it would a lot of fun to compete in.
I would volunteer to help be a part of organizing this if others show interest.  I can bring a chronograph and scales.

Believe it or not Paul, there were a set of rules that were followed.  ;)  I had to go back and reread the "turtle bow" chapter in TBB4 to remember how they went.  I think some of the rules may need to be changed a bit to get more accurate, and fair results.

Scrape, scrape, bend, bend, tiller, repeat - maybe the hickory stave I got from Kyle will be a real bow by then!  And it ain't too darn hot!  Don't think I can work fast enough for a scratch bow challenge!  Maybe an old slow first bow challenge!

Great thing about mojam is no reg/camp $$$ fees.
Tough thing about mojam is there's limited electricity. MoJam organizers and city of Marshal are gonna need to address this.
Be there by Wed.
Look forward to meeting you.

Got to get the tin tipi rigged up to haul the generator, and make the muffler box!  I think CJKopec is also bringing a horse tin tipi, if she and Cody can make!  Still learning all the tricks of our rig!  Like how to pull out the canopy!  May just bring the pop-up shade.

Title: Re: MoJam?
Post by: mobow on March 24, 2018, 01:33:25 pm
This is what Steve has written to post and ask for recommendations.  It will be great.

1st annual Mojam Broadhead Flight Shoot
 
In keeping with the spirit of Mojam we have decided to organize a flight shoot that will hopefully become an annual event and a tradition at many of the other primitive venues happening around the country. The winner of this event will be declared the official Primitive Broadhead World Champion.
 
We will have 2 classes, laminated wood bows and self bows. All bows will shoot at 10 grains of arrow weight per pound of draw weight so there will be no weight classes.
 
The longest arrows allowed will be 28Ē from the bottom of the nock to the back of the broadhead.
All arrows must have at least 3each 4Ē fletches minimum 1/2Ē high. The broadhead must be no shorter than 1 1/4Ē and must not fit through a 7/8Ē id ring.
 
All bows and arrows must be registered, inspected and weighed and the arrows must be numbered.
There will be a 10 grain tolerance on minimum arrow weights no limits on maximum arrow weights.
We will have no restriction on string materials for the bows. No elevated rests allowed on bows.
 
The field will be laid out using 100 yard contractors tapes down each side of the field with stakes placed at 5 yard increments past the 150 marker out to 250 yards. The field will be 50 yards wide if space allows.
 
In keeping with the spirit of Mojam we also hope to collect important data here and award certificates for various accomplishments. At the registration desk your bow will be weighed and inspected. The information gathered will be transferred to a spreadsheet for future comparisons.
Example: John Smith 50# osage , D/R design, 2Ē reflex, 20 oz, 64Ē NN, 178 yards.
 
World record status will only be given to one bow with no regard to class but certicicates or trophies if available will be awarded for many accomplishments in many classes. Such as longest recurve, straight bow, English long bow, etc. I also favor certificates for any bows reaching 200, 190 and 180 yards.
 
The field will be open all day for qualifying and practice and data gathering. This will be less formal and broadheads will not be required. But bows and arrows will still be weighed and measured.
 
The official shooting line will be opened up for 2 hours each day of the shoot, the last day it will be in the morning. This will be for our Jamboree Flight Organization so rules we be carefully adhered to.
 
I will recommend a .50 cent charge per arrow shot with a 3 arrow minimum. At the official shoot it will be a 6 arrow max round with each bow, No limit on how many bows can be shot. Some of the money will go toward putting together the needed supplies for the flight station and anything in excess would go back to Mojam.
 
Hopefully at this Mojam we can train several others to officiate flight shoots at other venues where space allows and put together a flight station with scales, forms and equipment that can be shipped anywhere in the country as needed. We will be looking for volunteers and will also possibly be needing arrows of various weights so if you can bring a few extra to loan to the shoot it would be great.
Title: Re: MoJam?
Post by: Mo_coon-catcher on March 30, 2018, 08:51:13 pm
Iím planning to be there from Wednesday through Sunday. If you all would like I can bring my range finder and chronograph along. The range finder is a sig Sauer kilo 2000, so a bit overkill but very accurate. The chronograph is a Caldwell g2. I may bring them anyway even if they donít get used.

One thing that I was thinking that would be fun to do is along the lines of how the show ĎForged in fireí
is done. I think along the lines of give a bow style to create and in a draw weight range. Giving time limits to each part of the build.for the stages, Iím thinking. 1- Hunt down and acquire/buy a stave from a vender or grab one from your stash you brought that would be suitable. (Whoever hasnít obtained a stave by the one limit is out) 2- get the stave roughed out and tillered. (After the time limit they will be inspected for design in the proper style and safety). 3- last step is to finish the bow and tweak the tiller if need be, essentially just getting the handle and tips shaped out, everything to make it shoot well and look as good as the time limit allows. Then they are shot and tested to see whoes is fastest and most comfortable to shoot as the coarse winning criteria. And as bows are to similar you get into more fine criteria to choose the winner.
The hard part would be, whatís the prize? And who are the judges? And what time frames would we go with?
I think it would be fun to do. And might be worth the effort of deciding this stuff if anyone else feels it would be worth doing. I think it could be set up to be done in a day. Something along the lines of: 45 min to pick a stave, 4 hours to go from stave to tillered, and 2 hours for tweaking tiller and finishing.
Just like on the show, your not expected to make a show peice or a perforce tiller. Just meet the criteria and shoot. But the better you do the more likely to win.

What do you all think? Worth the time or no?

Kyle - another of the geezers chiming in. Don't think I'll be able to keep up, but it's a great idea. It is kinda like the hatchet bow contest of years gone by.

Title: Re: MoJam?
Post by: Badger on March 31, 2018, 05:14:31 pm
   I think it is a cool idea but I would skip the stages. Just give until say 4 pm to get out the best bow they can. If they happen to start late the 4pm is still the time limit.
Title: Re: MoJam?
Post by: Hawkdancer on March 31, 2018, 09:32:51 pm
I will bring my Chrono and range finder(Nikon) - assuming I can find the range!  Still need directions off I-70!  What other happenings are going on?  Pot lucks, newcomers parties, strap hanger doin's, traders, bull sessions, etc?
Hawkdancer
Title: Re: MoJam?
Post by: Mo_coon-catcher on April 01, 2018, 01:40:42 pm
I like that idea better of having them done by a certain time of the day as opposed to to time frames.
I couldnít really help you with the directions. I usually have to use the gps to get in the area, then search and try to remember. From a certain pizza place I can get there easy. I just find the pizza place.

Re directions, 1st pg of this post is link to some MoJam info including map. Zoom out the map to get all directions needed.

There will be auction and pot luck dinner Sat eve. Bring something tasty.

Running Pig shoot, likely Friday and Saturday. Clout shoot Saturday, likely. There's 2-3 3D courses. Vendors. Bow-making and Bull sessions ... almost 24 hrs.

Look forward to meeting ya!

Well, so far the hickory bow blank decided that it would prefer to be kindling rather than achieve a more exacted status. One down, one to go. Maybe this is the one, he thinks hopefully..as he rumages through the bottom shelf of the island of misfit staves.

The osage elb stave is no longer has a dog leg, it survived a heat gun and c-clamp session.

Hoping to get my hickory stave shooting by then - trying to keep from going past target weight, and keep (get) a decent tiller, oh, yeah, and remember to breathe!  I think I will be able to get the next peg on the tiller tree tomorrow and get closer to Brace height.  I would like to be able to take it to JW's Turkey Camp next month.  Have to get some broad heads set up for the hunt and the flight shoot, as well!

I think CJKopec is also bringing a horse tin tipi

Cahl and I are still hoping to make it. Not sure if I’m hauling the the trailer or not yet. I was just in MO (about 20 miles from where the festivities are held) and being it’s a 1350 mile round trip haul at 7mpg we may rent a little roller skate of a car and tent it. But who knows, I may get a wild streak and just do haul it down there.  Cahl is all for tent camping. I told him if it wasn’t in the 90’s we could tent it.

We will probably be the ones rollin’ in with staves strapped to the top of a Yugo.   
Title: Re: MoJam?
Post by: lebhuntfish on April 29, 2018, 04:31:31 pm
I hope its in the 90's! Its usually around or over a hundred. Plus seing staves straped on a car is nothing.  I seen one straped on a harley one year!

Getting close is right,  as usual I have a lot to finish up!

Patrick
Title: Re: MoJam?
Post by: Hawkdancer on April 29, 2018, 07:05:20 pm
Follow them wild streaks!  Makes life interesting!  I may wind up sticking the generator in the back of the suv and stashing the good stuff in the camper!  Getting anxious!  It's real close to 1300 miles round trip for me as well!  On their other hand, Badger is coming out of California!  Easy haul!

Title: Re: MoJam?
Post by: cjkopec on April 30, 2018, 07:09:22 am
LOL I need to correct my statement...

I'll be the one with the staves and kiddie swimming pool strapped to the top of the Yugo.

I might just follow the wild side then. If I have any issues on the road at least I'll have air and a place to sleep ;)

I made the trip in my truck the end of March and was coming home on Easter Sunday thru all that ice when my oil pressure started bouncing all over the place. I was on a state highway with no mile markers. That was when I decided I was getting a little "less adventurous". We made it just fine. Hubby thinks that it had been so long since I really drove my truck any distance that I heated the engine and pushed the sludge into the filter and pressure sensor. I still need to switch that sensor out. I have replaced it 3 times already. But still, not an easy feeling on a holiday. I'll have to use the other truck to haul the trailer. It is only used for hauling since it has the big block and we take out a small bank loan to fill the tank. ;) But it's worth it to not hear the engine in my daily truck work so hard. The first time I hauled with it I was pushing 80mph at the end of the on ramp. ;) Ooops. John told me to get my foot off the pedal. I found out why when I pulled up to the gas pump. But she's got power....

Title: Re: MoJam?
Post by: Badger on May 02, 2018, 12:29:58 pm
   We are going to have a tiller tree set up over by the Broadhead flight line. Maybe someone who has a bow roughed out could bring it over to the shooting line and we could give a demonstration of not set tillering while he tillers out his bow. Preferable not floor tillered and where close to finished weight. And maybe a demonstration of Krewsons tillering gizmo. So it would need to be a pretty flat stave or laminated bow.

It sounds as there are going to be many activities this year.  All of these different tests. Will we find out if it is the wood or the profile, or the  bowyer or the style.  I love performance tests.  There usually are some real surprises. It will be interesting to see if attitudes and findings are the same as 20 years ago.  This one should be great.

Im definitely looking forward to mojam this year! I just hope I can spend my usual week,  with this new job it will be tuff. But I will definitely be there,  just got to get the logistics lined out. 

Sure will be nice to see the place filled up this year,  I hear that several old timers plan to make it again.

Maybe I can drag a cool spell down from Colorado with me - maybe 85 instead of 95! >:D >:D Lol!  Currently plan to drag the tin tipi, fun things like a/c, and the bathroom inside, plenty of room in bunk, running water, refrigerator!  Managed to get to Turkey Camp and back as a trial run, seemed like everything worked!  Sort of!  Have to learn how to operate the side awning better.

I was outside for work all morning and this ol fat boy is not used to the heat yet.  I will be by the time MoJam starts though.

Dave, not really trouble.  I just see it becoming less organized and more participant lead.  It has been moving in that direction for several years.  I think it works great but may not be appealing to some.  Also really did not expect Mojam to see year two so each additional year is a bit of a surprise.

Keith you know I will do what ever I can to help the week  of mojam.  I also like the way things are going at mojam with it being more participant lead, but if we need to have more structure to the event thats understandable and I would be willing to help with that as well.
 
I will do another tool sharpening demonstration again if you need me to.  I know the last couple of years I haven't and I probably should have.  What ever you need Keith, after all you done to help me out last year,  I'm at your disposal my friend....

Post by: mobow on June 13, 2018, 04:49:28 pm
Yep.  You always gotta watch who you hand a microphone to.   Last year was the first year that we did not follow a demo schedule of some sort.  It seemed to work with the same type of stuff being demonstrated anyway.  I am thinking this year to use the white board as a request board and if someone is around that knows how to do it they can schedule themselves to demo when they want to.

Sounds good Jon,  I just know I hate trying to help a new person with giant clamp compression scars on their stave, and stress fractures from bending wood that wasn't hot all the way through.  I think it would be good to teach as a team.  Maybe not on a schedule but when ever there is bending thats needed we can gather all who would be interested.

Patrick - that's a wonderful weather forecast you posted. "from your lips (or in this case, a weather forecaster) to God's ears".


Like others, I can only recall a couple of MoJAMs that were like that forecast shows. There was one that was brisk enough overnight that folks were sleeping under blankets and sleeping bags. Long sleeves everywhere that a.m. well, long sleeves for those who had the foresight to bring one along. That was the year I headed to Wally World and bought a denim jacket off the sale rack for 10 bucks. Still use it and bring it hoping to wear it again, hmm, maybe I should leave it home this year.

Stay hydrated my friend! Remember if you want a cold one it has to have blue mountains!

I think working out in the heat on everyones AC systems has me about ready for mojam.  Weather man said that today want going to have a heat advisory.  It didn't,  only got to 94 and the heat index was 103, I thought it was pretty nice out! Definitely cooler that the last 5 days of heat indexes of 110 to 113. So I think I'm ready! Cant wait,  bows are piling up around here!

Scott,  I would love to break a little rock with you this year if you wouldn't mind?

We got 2 seasons out here too, winter and August, but we ain't real sure about August!  This is a bit of a different year, though. 60-70 this week, 90s next week.  The 600-800 mile jaunts sort of hinder making it to many new events, especially when they conflict with established schedules and traditions,
Not to mention things like harvest time.

It's going to be here before I now it. We are nailing down a rental car and checking out the tent this weekend. Hoping to arrive on Sunday or Monday. Someone save a shade tree for me will ya? ;)

I spoke to a few people this last week at the Compton Trad Shoot that said that have a blast at MOJAM so we are getting more and more excited. Cahl usually doesn't show any outward excitement about things but he has been working on his stave more than usual this week. I dare say he's ready for you all.

Well, the first day of summer, and it is now noon-thirty. Temperature is an unbelievable 67 degrees here in KC MO.

Can't believe it after the temperatures during the last month or so. Could this be a sign for spectacular weather at MoJAM I asked myself...then I remembered this is Mizzurah, who knows what the next hour will bring.

But at this point in time, we're groovin' on the low temps, nice breeze and a bit of rain.

It will be good to see some first timers spend the week with us.  Glad to hear that your going to come early.  You will get to see how mojam develops throughout the week.  Although I have to say, nobody is ever ready for us!  ;D but im glad he is getting some work done in preperation.

Thursday you can get a spot if you know someone, and by friday, you can still get a spot, but you become oart of someone elses camp! (Which is always welcome.)

Hell, we can always stow gear under the camper to make a bunk for a needy soul -long as the wind doesn't blow us away! 
Jon, if you are talking about catfish and hush puppies, I'll be starting out Sunday to be there.  Getting ready to start the sourdough bread and the home brew!  Bread goes fresh baked into the freezer, home brew gets aged in the bottle!  May sneak in a bottle of blackberry mead, too!  And a sparkling water for Cahl!
Sounds like the earlier you get there the better chances you have of getting any spot!  Btw, what are the rules and regs on campfires, grills, etc?  I assume the city does mosquito control, but the mosquitos. Don't always pay attention >:D (=)!

Mosquito control.....That's funny

Apple pie, blackberry mead and clear liquids in quart jars will take care of the mosquitoes. You won't even notice them... ;D

honestly, other than an occasional annoying mosquito getting in my tent and buzzing around my ears, I do not remember them being bad.  But I am just naturally repulsive, so biting critters do not bother me too much....

Hawk the fish will be a mixture of crappie,red ear,and bass. Of course the obligatory hushpuppies.

Is there such a thing as misquito management? Definitely not at mojam, they ain't terrible but a good thermacell and some citranella candles or such is always a good thing to have. 

Jon I can bring another fish fryer and a pot for cooking.

Dave do I need to bring my smoker? Do you have any rabbits to go in it this year?

I'm thinking about bringing a couple whole tenderloins and putting them on the smoker.  Maybe for Wednesday? What do you all think?

I'm sure ill have a bow to finish up this year myself.  So hopefully I'll be getting some work done on it as well!

And packs a .44!  Ounce bottle!   (lol) (lol)!  Will likely bring a big bottle of clear liquid, as well Bread is baked, brew gets started tomorrow!  Of course, today was spent slaving over a. Hot oven, and making up an unfamiliar recipe keto bread for  Jacie.  Plan to get some more work done on the hickory bow as well!  Got it pulling past brace height at desired draw weight, now to make a string, and keep the tiller right! :BB (SH) :NN!  I assume "fake" fires (Propane patio fire) are acceptable, with a proper base and a shut ok valve?  It ain't really camping without a fire!  USFS allows them during fire bans.

Giff,
You're right water in daylight, lots of it, adult beverages at night!  The MOJAM ale is bubbling quite merrily, should be ready to bottle Monday or Tuesday!  What are the guidelines for the auction table items?  I'm not real good at comprehending fast moving speech from auctioneers, we usually have a slower fun pace to get everybody involved as we raise money for the wolfhound club.  Works pretty good for us.  I'm going to have to get loaded and mostly ready by Friday, 13 Jul, I'm judging earthdorgs on Sat, and have a black powder shoot on Sunday, plan to head out somewhat early on Monday, it's a 2 day haul from here at my age.  Hope to get there Tuesday afternoon.  Gettin' antsy!

You will have no problem navigating this auction. If the auctioneer is hard to understand or follow ot definitly not because hes to fast.  >:D
Any and about all items are accepted flr the auction. Common donations are bows, arrows, moonshine, jellies, jams, blankets, knappednpoints, staves, handmade items, baked goods, (talking to you paul  8) ) , coolers have been a big success as well, but they tend to get pricey quick.

Hawk,  no worries about the auction, im sure you won't have any trouble keeping up.  Just watch your gatoraid bottle at the auction.  Some how mine last year ended up full of apple pie.  Though not complaining about the pie, but I was pretty thirsty when I downed about half the bottle with one shot.

May have to post the "pie certificate" to be picked up at the cooler!  Will send a pm re: travel plans.

Patrick,
Sounds almost like an extra "jug" of something maybe in order!  Will probablbly bottle the MOJAm ale
Tuesday.  It'll be conditioned 2 weeks, just hope it doesn't jump out of the bottle!

Right there with you brother!  Its getting harder to concentrate on work the closer it gets.  Projects keep getting added at work too.  I was going to take off next week to get ready for MoJam, but now will be working right up till MoJam starts.  I am looking forward to relaxing and visiting with everybody. 

I am working on a few extra jugs of refreshments to bring too.  Hopefully we will have enough!

The tent passed its pre trip inspection today. The boy and I got it set up in record time. We have gotten a little spoiled camping in the trailer. Iím used to having everything we need already packed so we are making lists of lists to make.

As somebody who's never actually seen a semi-professionally made bow before, you could say that I'm rather excited to get down to MoJam. (Still trying to deal with getting this hickory bow done in this heat and humidity, but hopefully I'll get it done in these next couple of weeks.) Is there anything in particular I need to bring? Obviously the bow, tools, and camping gear should come along but I'm debating whether or not to bring a couple of Osage logs I cut back in the winter with me. Also, is there anything I need to do beforehand as far as registration is concerned?

Thanks,

Shane

Well if Cahl is up for it I wouldn't mind a game of chess. I was pretty dang good at one point but I haven't played much in a few years. 

Yes,  Happy 4th of July! Hope everyone gets full of bbq and is safe with the fire crackers. 
I to managed the day off,  got up way early and worked on a bow for a couple of hours.  But now its honey do time.  Cooking burgers and dogs for her work clan and hopefully getting my grass cut.  Ive been so busy that I haven't had time to get gas for my mowers.  The jug has been riding around in the back of my truck for 4 days.  But I did manage to get the 2 trees cut up that fell in my yard in the storm the other day. 

Ooohh I can smell the Osage now! Its almost here!

Sounds like a plan bud.  The only thing I try to shoot every year is the clout shoot.  There use to be a full strut turkey on the way down the hill.  I would shoot that target on the way down but I've never even seen the rest of the course. 
Heck, the only time in shot the running pig was when we done the red oak bow challenge.

My battery operated fans and case of batteries showed up yesterday. Now all I need to do is finish up this new website/blog I am working on and get it up and running so I can actually begin packing everything up for our trip.

I pulled up a google earth view of the area and I see exactly where you all are talking about to as far as where to go. My directions are bringing in us in from the north and it looks like possibly local back roads roads the last 2 hrs of my drive. It looks like it's bringing me in from the pool end of the area and then south to the grounds. It's all good 'll have the boy as my co pilot.

I also used my Google Fu for the local area and found the WalMart for groceries/ice and a Sonic for dinner and shakes ;) I'm looking forward to finishing up my first bow that I started at the Marshall Rendezvous in May. I'm going to bring an extra stave or two for us also.

I also can't wait to shoot that beautiful bow I got from Osage Outlaw at the trading blanket in May.  I've been to busy "adulting" to get to shoot. It's a touch heavy but I'm loving it! Not to mention that it is absolutely stunning. Everyone that sees it in my studio comments on it. Definitely a wonderful keepsake with a great memory.

I'll be there hopefully around noon on Sunday.  I'll also bring my fish fryer and tank.  And can help cook. 

Jon,  I can bring some extra fish if you need me to, I have lots of crappie and white bass,  lots!

I can't wait for this vacation,  work has been really rough this week and has really hinderd my preparation plan.  But I hope to have everything loaded Saturday and head out early Sunday.  3 more days!

Just got off the phone with my Uncle Gary,  he said they will be there around Wednesday, said he was bringing some froes, a big tanned elk hide and some other furs and all sorts of other stuff.  Said he is more prepared for our crowd this year.

I'm officially on MOJAM TIME!  Got off work at 7 this evening and all I got to do is get packed,  well maybe a little laundry and mow the grass.  I should be leaving out early Sunday morning if everything goes as planed.
Maybe when I get there Hawk will have those "mojam ales" iced down!

I have managed to pull out an pack almost everything on my list. I will finish packing it all up after I pick up my rental in the morning. I'm not sure how big of truck bed I'm going to have to shove all of these goodies in so I may have to adjust and improvise.

Gotta run to the store for a few groceries too. Hopefully, I'll have a chance to bake some cookies. Otherwise you all might get store bought.

Still need to pick out a stave to bring with me. I'm sure I'll finish the one I am working on while I'm there. Maybe I'll just see what everyone is bringing to sell too. It would be nice to buy one as a memento of this occasion. <----- I'll use that as my excuse to purchase one there. ;)

I can tell Cahl is getting worked up about it. He isn't one to show excitement or emotion but he's been out of his normal teenage funk today and laughing at my awful jokes.

I dont want to use them when others will probably need them, cpap and such, so, with bringing a smallish generator, is there a place I should park? Such as a generator designated area or does it matter?

There is a grocery store close by if you want to save the space. I do my food shopping a few times during the week to keep things cold and save room.

If you oark next to Patrick kevin ko one will hear your generator over the roar of his.  >:D.   

We are finishing up packing in the morning. I got the truck half loaded. Just have to drop amd pack the camper, load the rest and hit the road. I do t know what time we will be there, but im guessing 3.

Maybe we can all get close to the electrical Hookups and save fuel. I am bringing a small generator and my fan and a couple of longish extension cords and  a power bar!  No poison ivy to set it in, please!  Got to get everything loaded!  The Sequoia checked out ok, I hope, but bringing the one pole anyway!  And a 12x pop up!  Fake fire and extra propane to run it, bug chasers, Dutch oven, etc.  and a cot!  Too much to. Do this weekend!  Judging an Earthdog trial tomorrow about 40 miles away, got a black powder shoot on Sunday as well as a show that Jacie is playing Sunday!  Do have my sign made, just have to remember to bring poles to hang it on!  Everyone travel safely!

Thats good news Arvin! You going to camp with us for the week?

Man,  all I have to do is get packed,  but I have to pack everything,  haven't even began to start.  Im sure the wife will have something she thinks I need to do also.  But ll be 99% done today,  and probably put my bows in the truck in the morning. 

See everyone tomorrow!

Patrick,
What type regulator do you need?  I have several grill type regulators laying around the garage I can bring along, big 20# bottle hookup type.  From my garage to yours!
I will start loading the trailer this afternoon, but 95F is almost enough to slow me down >:D!  Getting anxious!  Better make a list and check it twice!
Paul,
I'll send a text when I'm about to head out Monday!  Should be able to roll pretty well, the cargo trailer has a low profile, except for the pole rack.  it is about 8-9 hours to Your area if I remember correctly.

That would work Neil,  Ill bring a big bag of hardwood Charcoal also. 

Hawk,  that would be great of you to bring a regulator.  But don't worry about it,  from what I can find, my smoker takes a special kind with a weird little adapter for the burner controles.  I'll just order a new one. 

I'll see you guys tomorrow!

Well, it was a fiasco this morning but I made it through with out losing my cool. Went to pick up the truck I rented from enterprise and the refuse to use my bank credit debit card as payment. They said regular credit card only. I have one credit card but I keep the limit low so if my online purchases are hacked Iím not out much. I even tried cash. They donít take that either. This was at 11 am. Then the light bulb went off as I was waiting for John to pick me back up. There was a van at the local U-Haul this morning  I was 20 min away and they closed in 30. I called and let the gentleman know what had happened and he stayed until I could get there to pick it up. And they had no issues with my card. Whew, crisis overted. I saw Cahlís face when it looked like we might not be leaving tomorrow. And man... I knew how much he was looking forward to this. So the van is loaded and we leave tomorrow early. I would have drove my truck if needed to but I havenít double check that oil pump since my last trip. Iím sure it was the sensor but I wanted to not worry about a break down so far from home

Gotta get a couple chores done before leaving and pick some peppers to bring along.

Now I know what it's like for the folk who can't make it to MoJam.
