Bobcat, you have not filed a preliminary trip report schedule, proposed action plan, for the groups approval.  Just like you file a flight plan before you take off, you must file a BBNP plan before any trips are blessed.   :lol:

Well. Your right, Shane.  A major oversight on my part. So, here's the plan:

First, get to the Bender. Upon arrival, do a short dance o celebration.  That can't be too long for obvious reasons.  On the way to the Basin, pull over and do a day hike on some nice looking rock structure.  Then a quicke stop at PJ  HQ and then on to a reserved spot in the Basin.  After first night could be camping anywhere. Day 2, wing it.  Day 3, wing it, Day 4 to Marathon to meet a friend, Day 5, wing it,  Day 6, wing it....I think you probably get the picture.  Now, how does that sound for a great trip plan :?:

That is correct.  Since I now own BBNP I require trip plans to be filed and approved.   :lol:  :lol:  :lol:  :lol:

Shanea...will have my trip plan on your desk at 0800 hours, one week prior to my departure.  It will, of course, be stamped, TOP SECRET, as I will be looking for Bobcat's secret cave on this expedition.

Hi Bobcat!

Yes, I should have said the Top Secret Cave.  My travel itinerary will only reference that I am traveling to the Top Secret Cave but will not provide any details with respect to location, GPS coordinates, etc.  That is done, of course, to protect the confidentiality of this most Top Secret Cave.  Furthermore, it will be printed on paper which will self-destruct after it has been stamped "APPROVED" by the authorities.

I presume this protocol will be acceptable to the authorities and those in charge.

---I am not sure they have accepted his new ownership position yet, but will grumble something and let you pass.... And can you believe that Shane only "doubled" the new entrance fees...I figured he would have tripled them at least!  :)

Actually there's no entrance fee if you bring a bottle of single malt for the new owner...... :roll:
Also, if you're pretty you get in for free too....
Actually if you're a woman and you're breathing I think it's only a $1  \:D/
