May 28 - 30, 2004
The annual Capps Crossing and Fish Fry began early with Rog and
Patti arriving Wednesday to reserve the camp site. Unfortunately, a motorcycle
group beat Rog and Patti to the last large camp ground along the Meiss Cabin
Road. Rog and Patti were able to locate an alternate camp site south west of the
traditional Capps Crossing camp site along Capps Crossing Road, large enough for
Jim and Vicki arrived Friday evening. After setting up camp and cooking dinner, Jim and Vicki joined Rog
and Patti, Richard, Stephen, Bill and Karen, Chris and Christine, and Al and
Kathy at the main campfire to warm up under cloudy skies.
After dinner, deserts donated by club members were auctioned off with the proceeds going to the Junior Jeepers.
Later Saturday evening a group of seven Jeeps left camp to go up to the Granite Slab. It was a perfect evening for star gazing. The sky was clear and a half moon was high in the night sky. Lights from the distant cities could be clearly seen in the West.
Sunday morning started with another beautiful day. Some decided to take it easy and relax in camp. A few hearty younger individuals went back to Jenkins Lake to partake in water sports. And some went out exploring different trails. By Sunday afternoon, those who had to work on Monday were packed up, said their goodbyes and headed home with fond memories.
