Thanks Tom.

Survey paint always comes in handy.
Also, especially since you will have youngsters in tow, remember there is no
porta-potty out there yet.  The nearest 'real' bathroom is at the general
store/restaurant right before you come to the gravel (4 miles from the
field).  So try to get your potty stops in while you can - or carry a
portable with you.

Oh yeah, that is right folks, the gravel portion of the drive is only 4
miles long.  Don't believe all the exaggerations, the whole way out is nice,
smooth, paved road except for the last 4 miles which is gravel.  And, they
just rolled and graded the gravel portion two weeks ago so even that is
pretty smooth.

I've got it on the family calendar and will probably have the van and
both girls in tow.   I could put some benches and whatnot in the van if
we need to.  The girls are enthusiastic helpers - maybe not fast, but

Is there anything I can bring out to help (besides tools)?  Survey paint?
Grass seed? (at my own expense for those wondering)
