We will be blasting off from the Upper Cormorant access on Saturday morning. Please park as close as possible to each other. If some of you want or are willing to run your rig to the middle access we will gladly shuttle you back and forth. With a chance of storms etc the Upper access can get pretty muddy. See you all in the morning.
