Hoping to make it, need to know when and where.


If possible Jerry, Todd and David and I would like to have one of the camp sites that three people can share.

Can't wait.
Thank you for doing this. The discussions were informative and interesting. Each time we hear or learn something new as people make suggestions and give impute. For those of you that did not attend you missed a good meeting. I would suggest that you try to attend the next one.

I have done concrete work before (when I was like 10 or 12) if the day planned works in my schedule I can help for sure.  Not an expert by any means but been on the job & worked on the jobs my father was doing so I have an idea. 

Also I must tell you if you watch some of the youtube videos out on doing concrete work they are really very good.  If nothing else it will help you know all the equipment you will need or not need.  Example - if you are not doing an area that you need great distances you can get away with a couple of hand floats and a two by four as far as equipment.  I was very impressed with youtube stuff for info on covering for wet weather when drying, how long etc.  Give it a watch
9/21/16 @ 9:30am - Not sure who all in the group would be able to check this out (Jerry? Juanita?) but if a few of us can make it I hope some of you will be able to come tell the rest of us about it at the next Prepper Round Table! 

The Washoe County Health District and Saint Mary’s Regional Medical Center will hold a special demonstration of Isolation Pod procedures as part of the distribution of over $115,000 worth of personal protective equipment (PPE) to local law enforcement, EMS transport agencies, and hospitals. The demonstration is scheduled from 9:30 – 11 a.m., Wednesday, September 21, at the Saint Mary’s Regional Medical Center Emergency Room Receiving area located at 235 West 6th Street in Reno. The event will exhibit the use of the pod by EMS first responders and then how the pod and victim would be transitioned into the hospital emergency and isolation room setting. Both demonstrations and the distribution of PPE are being conducted in order to prepare our community for health-related emergencies and to protect responders from known and emerging infectious diseases and other health hazards.
At the event there will also be a display of the various types of PPE agencies will be receiving including: tychem coveralls, biohazard bags, boot covers, chem tape, N-95 masks, gowns, and face shields. Funding for the equipment distribution came from supplemental grants from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response (ASPR). Equipment recipients are the Reno Police Department, the Sparks Police Department, the Washoe County Sheriff’s Office, the Washoe County School District Police, Gerlach Volunteer Fire Department, REMSA, Saint Mary’s Regional Medical Center, North Lake Tahoe Fire Protection District, and Renown Regional Medical Center.  An opportunity for media to interview health district and hospital staff along with PPE recipients will be provided during the distribution ceremony following the demonstration. A reception sponsored by St. Mary’s Regional Medical Center will conclude the event.
I hope we have a good attendance tonight.
See you there.
We will be there...looking forward to it.

I'll be available for manual labor (not a concrete expert).  Might need transport if you're too far for bicycle travel.  PM me with approximate location please.

I wish I could help, but it is outside my scope. If you are able to set up a work group to assist let me know and I will do what I can to lend a hand to those that can actually do the work.

Hello all,

I need a concrete slab and disability ramp placed in my tiny front yard so I can have my mother visit. She may be moving in with me and needs to use a walker.

Suggestions and volunteers appreciated.
