Lizard Lee always needs CR123 Lithium batteries. He also welcomes cash donations.


DO NOT FORGET TO BRING LARGE HEAVY DUTY PLASTIC BAGS TO HAUL OUT YOUR AND COMMUNITY FIREPIT ASHES PLEASE

PLEASE DATE WITH A MARKER AT HOME EVERYTHING YOU BRING TO GET ROTATION GOING!


Lower Springs:

BATH SCRUBBER LIKE THIS - NONE LEFT (99 cents in walmart):

NO MORE COMET/AJAX CLEANERS FOR A WHILE - THERE IS PLENTY

BLEACH BASED SPRAY CLEANERS - CLOROX FOAMERS WORK THE BEST IMHO.

BLEACH - DO NOT bring "splashless" bleach to the springs for cleaning the tubs. It has the effect of being very foamy and difficult to rinse out after cleaning the pools. 
Regular bleach works best. Filling a spray bottle with regular bleach to spray on the tub surfaces when empty works very well. It is easier to rinse and neutralizes the quickest.

Need more koi fish to the pond.

Quality spray bottles - no more 99 cent bottles - they last 1-2 times.


Premium  TP

Solid Air Fresheners with odor neutralizer like this:
https://www.renuzit.com/products/cones

Biodegradable only dishwashing soap

Kitchen scrubbing sponges

Paper Towels + gloves + elbow grease are needed for cleaning the restrooms but PLEASE DO NOT DISPOSE USED PAPER TOWELS  into the restroom tanks. Collect into your trash bag and take them home. Do not leave unused paper towels in the restrooms - hide them in the storage, donate to camp host or take back home. People use paper towels to wipe hands and throw them into the tanks. Paper towels do not break easily and often clog pump truck hoses.


Palms Springs:

Quality heavy duty spray bottles - no more 99 cent bottles - they last 1-2 times.

A couple of quality brooms

There is a shortage of spray bottles. Need the heavy duty commercial style. As  a reminder regular bleach is best. Splashes is  difficult to rinse out because it is foamy.

Yes regular ol' bleach is the best. No fancy stuff especially no eco mom green cap enviro bleach. That green cap bleach is Ammonia based and if mixed around Chlorine based bleach is toxic! Aside from being foamy and hard to rinse out the splash less stuff clogs the spray bottles prematurely.

Writing today to inform everyone not to bring "splashless" bleach to the springs for cleaning the tubs. It has the effect of being very foamy and difficult to rinse out after cleaning the pools.

Needed are more quality spray bottles.

In case anyone is still wanting to restock the goldfish pond, Wye Road feed in Bishop does sell feeder fish now, so at least it's not as long a drive for bagged fishies.

You mean bring it when you want to have a fire. Otherwise Lee will just burn it all or stock it for his own personal use.

The communal firewood pile is essentially out so I'd recommend bringing some up if you'd like to have a fire over president's day down there.

So far my experience with valves at Palm Spring is brass valves always leak after a year or so. In the tubs no big deal but I hate when the shower valve ends up leaking and always wet promoting algae-moss. PVC is far superior because they don't collect the minerals but cheap one's can be hard to turn.  I will be looking into PEX for future replacements. I hope they meet the lead free requirements.

Those are not Koi.  They are adult Comet Goldfish, the type sold in pet shops as "feeders".  When there's nothing to eat them, they grow quite large and colorful. 

The problem is that Dusty's Pets, in Bishop, went out of business.  Now, as far as I can tell, the nearest pet store is in Gardnerville, Nevada.  Goldfish would be unlikely to survive a trip that long without some type of specialized aeration equipment. ($$$$)
