Pete,
 
I can contribute:
 
1) latrine supplies. I envision a shallow hole in the ground with a spade and conduit frame work with tarps around it for a latrine. Is that what you had in mind? If so, I have supplies on hand.
 
2) Fire Control: I have two back mounted Indian Fire Pumps for fire control that could be used.
 
3) My wife Juli is trained in Wilderness First Aid. I'm sure she would be willing to provide assistance. 
 
4) I don't have any extra flags or poles, but I do have 3 US flags (4x6) that need to be properly retired. We could have a ceremony for that.
 
5) Although I'm not a good poker player, I do have lots of parts to give up with sh*tty hands Confused

to many jeeps, parts, and accessories to list here, but apparently enough to keep me in trouble with my wife.

Hello Joe,

That all sounds wonderful! You are correct - holes dug - along with a "seatless chair" and privacy- perfect!

Thank you for being willing to cover many of the needed items and a proper flag retirement ceremony sounds great! 

If there are others reading this that would have an interest in this event please speak up or send a PM 

Thank you

Pete
