If the day is hot and still we may move the location to Martin Dreiling's
Camp (Parcel 8) as it is cooler there in the summer. If this is the case,
we will try to let all the RSVP's know by Friday night. We will also post
a sign at Dave's gate.

Road Use Reminder
is the regular reminder about use of the Road. Please share this with
all guests and vendors.
lock the gate; regardless of whether it was unlocked when you got there.
sure the combo is NOT left on the lock or the lock will not lock. Spin
the numbers before locking and test the lock to make sure it is locked.
- If you
wish to leave the gate open for a car that may be following, please
wait at the gate while it is open.
pick up litter and debris that does not belong on the road. If you are
at the Front Gate and see litter, please assist in picking it up for
removal. This makes the Front Gate more attractive for all users.
remove rocks or trees that have fallen onto the road. (If you remove
a large tree or perform other substantial work in keeping the road open,
please advise the Committee so we can say thanks.)
get permission from the owners of the front ranch to park cars inside
the front gate. Contact: Dean and Kelly Falkenberg (707) 431-1517 email@example.com
park between the front gate and the second green-post and chain fence.
This way the Owner can tell that you are a guest and not a trespasser.
drive slowly and carefully.
advise guests that they are traveling over private property and that
they should respect the privilege to do so. It is not appropriate to
stop for sightseeing or personal relief on other's property.
advise your guests regarding Road Etiquette including basic driving
methods for rural roads and basic courtesies.
ask guests to say Hello and readily identify themselves and who they
are visiting when meeting someone on the road. (It's always nice when
I encounter a stranger on the road and they tell me who they are without
me having to ask.)
advise all of your guests regarding the importance of locking the gate.
It is your responsibility to ensure that your guests understand how
to operate the gate.
advise guests not to litter the area around the gates. (I pick up trash
there almost every time I enter. This is not road trash but it came
from people using the gate.)
advise guests to assist with Road maintenance by removing rocks or trees
that are in the path of travel should they encounter them.
