just received confirmation from Pier that he is in and the only 1 there. Required a little bit of creative navigating. 30 min away!

Ok guys, it's blowing a nice SSW and it's warm, get your ass here.

make a right on Dahringer road right before the gate to the power plant.

Then keep going left on the gravel road and you will get back on seahorse dr.

Can't put the map pictures with my phone in here.

See ya soon
