I was coming home from our Anza Borrego Desert hiking trip, James was going back to Davis and we stopped off
In Wilton for one of the best knap-in’s I have ever been to. The first day knapping had already started; Jimmy from Paleo Planet was making his amazing Ishi Points Grog Verbeck, GaryPicket, Patric Aims and a host of others were bifacing . Dr. Susan Gleason was busy filling an arrowhead order.
James and I got a good camp down by the little lake near a pine covered knoll. The knapping and vitals neverslowed down. Wild game provided by John and Coral Piri, Patrick Aims and Dave Sutherland, a great host.

Grog and Patrick cook chow!

We were fortunate to have a real Chef, Grog Verbeck and helper Patrick Aims cookin’ the chow. I have to say we ate well all 3 days and all 3 meals each day.
