    Default Our Base of Operations and Chow Hall

    I have been talking to Brandon and he is going to be buying a GP Medium this week. It is going to be ours for the weekend.

    With that said we will need some help Thursday Setting it up.

    Also everyone needs to bring chairs to sit in, and if you have tables available bring them along too. I am bringing two tables one about 10ft and one about 4 ft.

    I am likely going to set up a cot inside the GP Medium and I will sleep inside so we won't have to worry too much about "secureing" stuff at night. If the weather is crappy I will likely set up a tent under the GP Medium so we are still covered.

    I also talked a little more about the tent with Brandon and he said the ones he is looking at may need some minor repairs, and he asked if we'dbe willing to help him with the repairs, set up, and I told him to get a water proofing agent of some sort, and he is looking for help spraying the tent. I told him a Silicone based tent water proofing spray would be best, does anyone know something that will work better on a GP Med?

    I have used the canvas waterproofing that I bought through Cabala's and it works pretty good. 1 have a unopened gallon that I'll donate.

    It depends on if he gets a real GP medium or civilian rental circus tent (how fitting for us). They made vinyl and canvas tents both require different maintenance chemicals and repair.

    HE is getting a real GPMedium, going to look at some in Springfield today. The ones he is looking at need a couple of minor repairs the best one has one or two hole the size of a fist, I told him a canvas patch and some glue of choice, attch glue and the sew the canvas patch.

    I think a gallon of the canvas waterproof stuff would work great and one gallon should cover the whole thing shouldn't it?

    Tiff when are you coming?

    I'm picking up a guy at the airport then coming down. I don't have his flight info yet, but I'm guessing around 1500 Fri.

    I'll be there Thurs, hoping for around Noon. Going to depend on traffic.

    I plan on leaving home around 6pm wed evening, and it's 13 hours with good traffic flow.

    Have to add a few hours for pit stops (8 YO kid, my back, and a short nap will add a couple hours)
