getting closer guys on 04/15/2011 18:36:57 MDT Print View

i picked up a sweet topo map of the sespe wilderness today at a local blue printing company

according to the topo the trail will cross the sespe creek once at the beginning and again at bear creek camp however it will cross two other creeks in between
it will cross trout creek once and north fork creek once so make sure you come prepared to get your feet wet should be nice weather though so it shouldn t be any problem
now who s bringing the beer for friday night lol

Not to highjack the thread, but who's up for Rae Lakes again this year?, or maybe start at Onion Valley, via hwy 395 and hike over Kersarge pass down to Rae Lakes then back to roads end.

This sounds like a blast but I'm afraid we just can't make this one. Perhaps next time.
Have a great time!

beer canister on 04/23/2011 10:40:54 MDT Print View

Adan hears bear canister and brings a beer canister.

Looks like I may be out seeing you guys that weekend. I'm chatting with Craig about it tonight. We're gear testing beer canisters over at his place.

Beer cannister on 04/23/2011 13:54:26 MDT Print View

Hey michael good to hear from you. Thought you might be southbound by now. You must have those cannisters dialed by now, you two were testing em last time i saw you!

Somebody needs to talk cameron in to shipping us one of his cannisters, for testing.

Jack, rae lakes would be killer again but im not seeing abunch of free time for me this summer with all the other stuff. Thanks though.

Southern/Central CA BPL trip on 04/25/2011 08:47:34 MDT Print View

It looks like instead of Friday I'll be heading in Saturday morning with Michael Skwarczek. We'll likely only stop to say hello and hang out for a bit though- we're going to move on and hike the 15 additional miles to the Sespe hot springs and camp there instead, leaving Sunday.

I some how missed this thread. I wouldn't be able to go on this trip, but I've felt for a long time that it would be great if we could have an active group like the Bay Area BPLers. You can count me in on future trips.

I've been watching this thread and am definitely interested in future trips. The calendar doesn't work for me for this trip. If anyone is interested in going sometime in May, let me know. I live in Santa Clarita. Have fun!


kevin smith
no worries guys on 04/25/2011 15:28:58 MDT Print View

kendall and michael

it will be great to have both of you out on future trips if this trip goes smoothly
im sure we will plan a few more over the summer (too hot for the sespe trip after this month though)
but we will find some other cool destination and head on out
