It is best described as a floating bacchanal that has tempered over time. There's a core group of about twenty of us who gather for the week around fourth of July to live on houseboat at Lake Shasta. Non-core Shastites, newbies, and occasional vistors, can swell the population up to forty-ish. Recent years have required two houseboats to accommodate everyone. The inaugural Shasta trip was thirty-three years ago, this year marks my thirty-first. Dam, I love Shasta.
