We'll have probably a ton of pancake mix along, which we can use up on the return leg if it doesn't get used at Rubithon.
I'm in for that. Can we add some Hatch chilis? We can buy some of this in Reno, right? I have a couple of boxes of Kodiak Cakes mix I could donate to the cause.

So, do I bring my 2-burner Coleman stove or not? Sounds like you guys have it covered. LMK.

We bring along a couple cans of chilies as a backup and keep an eye for fresh stuff along the route.

As far as stoves, I absolutely expected to share the appliances, but a 3 burner stove won't support all 25+ of us. I can serve reasonably 6 to 8, 10 depending on the meal. More than that and it gets tough to keep stuff warm. I've sort of assumed stove-wise that you need about one burner per 2~3 people, so if we're 30 total we really need about 8~10 burners. So we should lock down who is bringing a stove.

DaveInDenver - 3 burner
Shark Bait - 2 burner
Hulk - 3 burner

I have 2 two-burners and three-burner. That's 7 burners. All Coleman. I need to do some work on the 3-burner to get it back at full speed. Dave, how much of an expert are you on these stoves?

They are simple, if you can change your oil you can fix Coleman stoves. What's wrong with it? I'll put you down for the 3 burner, unless you want to drag 2 stoves with you.

I have a two burner Coleman propane stove with a griddle that I would be glad to bring if it is needed. Just let me know otherwise I will leave it home.

So....getting down to the wire and menus need to be planned. Have we decided that "yes" we will do a group meal thang on Friday night? If so is there a theme? 7 of our 11 attendees have posted something relavant and Romer is mooching Norcals food but I really don't see a plan per sei.

I've asked the wife to whip up a batch of her spaghetti sauce that I plan to freeze and bring along...Simple meal: reheat the sauce, boils the noodles, and voila

How many folks would be interested in having spaghetti Wed, Thurs, or Fri night? We could combine this with other stuff for a group dinner.

Mooching NorCal or individual Wednesday at Buck Island, right? I'd be down for getting in on the NorCal dinner if that's an option.

So RS group options are Thursday and/or Firday dinner. What about a potluck theme night(s)? A couple of options that come to mind are chili night, Mexican food night, Italian night.

We are going to sit down and make up a shopping list Wednesday.

Right now I am planning on some larger than just us groups for Thursday and Friday breakfasts. If that's a RS size group or just a few extra people, makes no matter to me other than how much pancake mix and burrito stuff to bring.
