    I hate to not go at the last minute, but my back and I have been in disagreement the past several days. I will be staying home, but Todd Stark will be on hand to help with this event.

    Ok is this just a drive to Heber for the day?
    Or is everyone staying and camping or something?

      This will be just a day trip. Camping sounds like a good idea for the future.

      Probably, the best is to meet around the rest rooms close to the vendor area. It is the only land mark that I can think of since I've only been there once.

      Looks like there is a park-n-ride right next to the exit near a Shell gas station.
