Jay, Are you thinking of hiking on Friday or debauchery at the campground Friday night?

Hey Ken, I guess it depends on what time we manage to get there..I would like to stretch my legs a bit if time permits(get a head start)and if there is a campsite--- but I am always up for a little debauchery... I guess play it by ear. Sounds like fun no matter what!

Trinity Alps -"L" Lake :clothes on 10/07/2009 13:00:18 MDT Print View

Dave do not forget: beanie, gloves or a baklava...A baklava is good to keep the cold air off your face if you are not used to sleeping in cold air. A Baklava can really help..Try Sunrise Mountain Sport for a lightweight one..Every thing else looks good. Don't forget some car camping clothes and change of clothes for the drive back.

That's twice you've had to remind me about gloves!

They're here on the dining room table ready to go.

I have 3.5 oz worth of beanie and neck warmer, too.

I'm stoked, see you Friday.

David, I also have Prolite 4 sleeping pad for you to use(much warmer then the 3/4) Bring the 3/4 for a sit pad and underneath pad for the inflatable sleep pad..The 3/4 pad is good for insulation...
