I would like to thank Sam White for emailing the details below for the upcoming scheduled Tehachapi Meeting of Trail Angels on July 8 2014. The Meeting Notice can be viewed by clicking Here For meeting notice.
It looks like they have a wonderful network of Trail Angels in Tehachapi and I feel honored to have the opportunity to share this with you! Please let me know how else I may be of service! Eric B. Fuller, Hundy
Too many posts Sam White. Last one for tonight, promise.
I am seeking loan of laser for star program tomorrow night at Brite Lake for California Conservancy Core. Perhaps Dale Hawkins has one? Please check with him, but will accept any.
