      We did this last year and it was a blast. There's a picnic shelter there that we don't need to reserve, bar-b-ques, electricity (but no lighting at one shelter), a fire pit at the shelter without lights, and an open field so we can play catch if we want (frisbee, baseball, etc.). We'll need to set up a list of who's going to bring what. I'll bring:

      Lantern (I only have one)
      Charcoal
      Hotdogs
      And a white gas stove if you need something that requires a stove
      If you want to cook anything else other than hotdogs, you are more then welcome to bring wherever you like to eat

      This is the first decently warm week of the year so let's not waste it indoors. I checked the weather, and it's looking good so far.
      If you have any questions, let me know.

      Dude, that's next Monday (the 14th) and I might see you there. So excited for it.

      I have neither school or work tomorrow so I'm in. I have 2 frisbees (non-lit) and a Football (US) and I'll bring some firewood and S'mores stuff. Maybe grab a few other things.

      Here's what the weather is looking like, not awesome, but not bad:



      I'll throw a pic of the map up also.

      Yeah, let her sit a while and she eventually started. She'll probably start fine today of course.

      Still gonna try to figure out what the problem is though.

      If I recall correctly the CEL predates the APR modifications. I have the codes so I could certainly do a little research into the possible solutions though.

      Hey no worries, it's always good company. And if I don't know how to fix it, at least I provide laughs and shop talk to pass the time. Like I said last night, if it happened to me I hope somebody would do the same thing for me.

      No but we ran the symptoms and codes by someone in the know, and he thinks it might be the coolant temp sensor. I hope he's right since that is a cheap as hell part to replace.
