"You're just scared of losing to the Micro Burst."

Haha... had to think about that one for a minute. I dunno man, the Instaflator is pretty intimidating when it expands to full size, it might crush your morale before the race even gets started :)


Anyway, nothing is set in stone re: Durango (other than us being there on the 18th). There are a lot of things to consider still.

Fastest inflatable pad. At least torso length.

I have a large Neo Air now. It seems to takes days to inflate at the end of the day.


Ken I will also show up on Friday night.

With the demise if the Wiki here at BPL I have created this one post that will contain all the most up to date information on the annual event in one place. I will bump and update this one post as needed.

Reservations have been made at Henry Coe for the upcoming GGG in February 2012.

Please help defer costs of the GGG reservations and incidentals Paypal of funds would be greatly appreciated.

Paypal to kenthompson2@mac.com



Please let me know if you are coming. And let me know if you are in for Friday night as well.

Remember that the Westbound lane of the Oakland Bay Bridge will be closed Friday through Tuesday


Bring a chair



The official word is as follows...

The 4th Annual BPL GGG will be held at Henry Coe State Park February 17-19 2012

Information about the park can be found here. http://www.coepark.org/

There's a few items I'd like to see....MLD Exodus and/or Prophet, any HMG pack and a Solo Trailstar. Actually, even though I recently purchased a regular Trailstar I have not seen it set up yet since I live in an apartment and don't have a yard. So, if nobody else is bringing one I might bring it so I can show it to myself and practice pitching it.

Chris. That is sad. Bring your Trailstar. It's going to be like a dog park for gear. Shelters and UL crap everywhere!

@ Chris S.
I am not only brining an MLD Prophet.. it's an MLD Super Prophet!
(Super version has Double bottom and solid dyneema pockets)
If you want I can bring my MLD Exodus that has two thru hikes worth of miles on it too.
The Exodus was mauled by a packrat in Glacier (no Joke) but it's still excellant.. if a bit stinky at this point!

Any requests on whether we should bring our Duomid with the "Trailstar" add-on (formerly Doug Ide's), or our Lightheart Duo?
