Invitation: BPL 3rd Annual Trip on 01/14/2011 07:12:17 MST Print View

Feb. 25-27 Henry Coe State Park

Just a general invitation to those of you who may be on the fence about coming. You are of course welcome to come even if you don't live in the Bay Area. Or California for that matter. You will not be judged by the gear you bring. So newbies shouldn't feel nervous. We have people attending from all over. You could carpool with someone if you can't afford the gas, or whatever. This event has been a blast every year. Don't miss out. If you have any questions or need help getting there please feel free to PM me or Ken H.

Please don't reply here, as I want to bump the invite a few more times before the event.

I've managed to steer the dates for a visit to our bay area daughter so that they overlap that weekend. Count me in for Sat morning thru Sunday! I'll send $$ Real Soon Now.

I might need a ride one or both ways (San Jose). But we don't have lodging details yet.

Jim, I am sure someone will have you taken care of for a ride. If not, then let me know, I live right above San Jose in the Santa Cruz Mtns. and might be able to pick you up

" You will not be judged by the gear you bring "

oh PUH-lease ...
.. and you will be additionally judged on if you bogart the scotch. i personally will judge you, you , and YOU .. on pretty much everything else, including even your hat, and the looks of your girlfriend.
so, if only to avoid the debilitating effects of post erection (of your tarp) judgement, bring your coolest gear, your finest duds, and best looking girlfriend.

If you are thinking of coming act now. We are near capacity. Thanks to all who have responded. All we need now is good weather.

BPL 3rd Annual/ Gear Hauling on 02/06/2011 08:43:43 MST Print View

Well at Henry Coe the park is going to let us take a few vehicles to the group spot on Saturday to allow us to haul in supplies. If you want to have things brought to camp, like coolers and chairs, firewood. We will need you to be at the trailhead fairly early on Saturday. I would suggest getting and early start anyway, as there will be much to do and see, eat and drink. Ken H and I will be there Friday night. If you have things for the swap meet we can haul that stuff to and have the sale in camp. Then we will drive it all back out on Sunday morning.

Ken,

What time do you want to make the meeting for supply and gear drop off for the supply vehicles?

I have box of duraflame logs to have driven in....maybe a chair.
