Morgan, you are more than welcome to join in. There are a few central coasters that attend these. As Ken stated in the previous post, Point Reyes was limiting and the whole wait list, saying no to someone was quite burdensome...Ken and I were trying to come up with a place that would allow us to have everyone attend. So far Ventana Wilderness is the winner, unless a better place with no restrictions comes up.

Thanks Ken... and Ken! I'm happy you guys are so welcoming. I'll be watching this thread and trying to keep Jan/Feb clear on my schedule until a date is set. Hopefully Ventana will work out and I'll get a chance to meet some BPL-ers this winter.

30+ last year. Would have had more if space allowed. Expect 50+ this time around. First year we had 11 I think. See you there.

Wow, that's a good sized group, and mostly coming out of the bay area... pretty cool. Sounds like you guys have been at Wildcat the last couple of times, that's an awesome camp locale (other than the skunks), I'm looking forward to the announcement of the destination. Thanks for putting this together.

Just an update. After discussing the location and date with Ken T. we both have arrived with this.

Offical announcement here:

Date: Friday-Saturday, Feb. 25th-26th
Location: Ventana Wilderness, China Camp Trailhead to Pine Valley.

If you plan on attending please check in with us. We have plenty of space this year and it should be a blast. Things that will be discussed are a buffet on Sat. and a gear Swap that will come on the conclusion of the hike on Sunday. If anyone has any suggestions to make this even more fun please chime in.

"The date is a long way out but I'm in."

Sure is a ways off yet. Just want to give enough advanced notice so all who want to attend have time to get there affairs/kits in order.

I am in, most likely my daughter too. We did this trip last September. At that time the gnats were a bother, which won't be a problem this time. The water at Pine Falls was the coldest I have ever swam in; colder than Rainbow pools in June. While there we met and had coffee with legendary ( and well over 80) Jack English, who lives in a self made cabin in Pine Valley, and packs in his food and supplies, other than what the Rangers bring him. Nice big spot to meet up.
