wow, cimarron river is going a long way from home... St. Louis, to be exact! Perhaps if I'm lucky, I'll be able to get some photos... but probably not, as I'll likely be in school.

Well, you can always call me, I might be able to help you find it if you do decide to come down. You don't have class on Sunday do you?

I know I'll be sharpshooting to see if there's need for a pilot :)

Does anyone have pictures of the equipment that's going to be used on this trip?

I see it all the time in St. Louis.. apparently they just leave it parked in the yard, which is strange.... at least, every time I'm around...
