Petrified Wood May 2nd

April 29th, 2010
Hello rock hounds ;
This is to remind you of our field trip to Saddle Mt. On Sunday May 2 .
We will meet at the Safeway Parking lot in Chewelah at 7AM  , Do not be late as we will  stop at the STAPLES parking lot on N. DIVISION and FOOTHILLS DRIVE at 8 AM to join up with those who will find it more convenient to meet us there .
Please share rides and fuel costs and if you can not maintain freeway speeds please ride with some one who can .
The road up the mountain is reported to  be in good condition but all cars should have reasonable clearance . For those of you not familiar with  this area ; a short handle shovel ,your rock  hammer , small  pick , mid size hammer , chisel ,5 gal. Bucket , lots of drinking water , and lunch .
This will be a long day and a tiring drive and we want it to be as comfortable as possible so
Please do not bring long handled shovels or large bars unless you will be driving a pickup , vans and cars will be loaded  .
My van is already fully loaded,andGreg will be driving it as I am restricted due to health issues .
I just was made  aware that loose tools and rocks in a passenger compartment is a NO –NO
All materials should be  secured in a trunk or if in a passenger compartment should be secure in a cargo net , or better yet carried in a pickup .
Jerry Novack has offered to take his pickup and carry  tools and rock –if we help with fuel cost ?
( my offer ) !
See you there —- Rex
