A place to sound our barbaric yawps

The next manly book meeting is set for Tuesday, September 8.

Time. Official start time will be 8 o'clock. An optional pre-meeting fishing experience will occur at 7 o'clock.

Tangent. I tend to think in terms of rivers and streams. Provo River is close and Diamond Fork is not so close. Normally I'd pick Diamond Fork hands down for the beauty, solitude and a better prospect of hooking a real nice fish. It's just kind of far for a weeknight.

Grub. Let's gather round a fire for tin foil dinners. I'll bring the meat, foil, seasonings and tongs. That leaves potatoes, carrots and drinks. If any first-timers plan to attend (as opposed to the three second-timers), perhaps the menu could grow to include s'mores.

Location. Let's go to Upper Falls on the Provo. It's just upstream from Bridal Veil Falls. Get off at Bridal Veil Park and you'll see a parking lot and a secondary road headed up the canyon parallel with (and below) the highway. Take that road and keep going when you see the parking stalls near the foot bridge going to Bridal Veil. The next site is Upper Falls. We may get kicked out at 10 o'clock since it's a day-use only site.

Yesterday's meeting was a success. We enjoyed Bratwurst, chips, Henry Weinhard's root beer and black cherry cream soda.

As a nod to Fosco, we indulged in lime tarts.

We're reading Zen (Myles' pick) for next month, and Karamazov (Joe's pick) in October.
