Wanted To Buy / WTB ~ Horse Trailer
« on: September 13, 2016, 09:23:02 PM »
Looking to buy a used horse trailer.  Ideally one with a tack room in the front.  Gooseneck preferred.  Bumper hitch ok too.  Steel or aluminum.  Will gut for a v2 project trailer anyways.  Tandem axle.  Needs work ok but must be roadworthy to tow home.  Two horse minimum.  Won't be used for livestock anyways.

I'll be trolling Craigslist but if you happen to know of something drop me a pm.

General Talk / unSCruz 2016 ~ Regional Burning Man Event
« on: January 11, 2016, 03:09:32 PM »
unSCruz 2016  is coming soon; May 6th -8th

         Tickets go on sale @ early February!  This will be the third year this event is being held at the fairgrounds in Watsonville and this year is expecting its largest participation ever.

A 3-day, 2-night camp out and cultural festival of dance, music, art and free expression, on the beautiful lawn of the Santa Cruz County Fairgrounds! There are theme camps, music camps, art cars, fire art, fire dancers, costumes, lounges, EL wire and lots of glowy things at night. Who puts on UnSCruz? YOU DO! UnSCruz is a completely not-for-profit, participant-driven event! This event IS what YOU bring to it (volunteering, performing, theme camps, etc.). UnSCruz is an official Burning Man Regional Event. This essentially means, we are endorsed by them, we receive NO money from them, we are NON-commercial in every way, we abide by the 10 principles, and ticket sales are the ONLY way to generate the money needed to pay the bills. Everyone is a volunteer; no one is paid a penny.

This is a great way to get a taste of the 'Burner' culture before jumping in head first for big Burning Man event in Aug/Sept.

Interested in attending?  I'm hosting one of the largest camps this year and planning for this event is already in full swing.  Feel free to drop me a PM for more details.  I'll update the post as details about the event, ticket prices, ticket dates, bands, etc... are released.

Fishing Tournaments and Events / 2016 Lowrance Seminars
« on: January 08, 2016, 09:15:07 AM »
Hello alll...

   2016 is here so it's time to start talking fishfinders & gps stuff again!  2015 was a bust on my part for hosting seminars BUT things are looking better for 2016 PLUS new product lines within Lowrance; Hook & Elite Ti Series.  I'm working to finalize city locations for the 2016 Seminars and topics SOOOO if you have a preference of cities you'd like to see one hosted in as well as specific topics, please let me know soon so I can wrap up my proposal with Lowrance.  My normal area is Sausalito to Monterey but I'm open to co-hosting with our other awesome Pro-Staff'er Mike (aka WingShooter) in the Sacramento area.  Just confirmed:  I'm presenting three major seminars across the US this year - Long Beach California, CC Texas and Orlando Florida.  Super stoked on these!

   Shooting for a seminar launch around March or April with ~1x a month around the Bay Area & beyond.  If you have attended other seminars in the past, I am working on shorter ones  :smt002  Once we host the "Intro" one (aka the LONG seminar  :smt003), then the remainder to follow should be far shorter, more specific to one or two concise topics such as tuning you unit.

   As always, the seminars are free.  Stay tuned into this thread for more info to follow.

   Chime in!

Bill :smt006
