Have a good one 'all.

I'm down that I had to cancel, but there is always next time. I'll raise a mini bottle of Jack to you guys while I'm cruising at 30k...

You confused me now. You are hiking in this afternoon? I thought it was like last year, car camping on Friday night??

You would've been very lonely and puzzled in the headquarters campground...

OK, first batch of brownies just went in the oven...

Update: joined by batch #2. Not sure if I have room in my cardboard box for 3 batches, we'll see.

I was just wondering if there were anything more specific than "early." 6:00? 7:00?

One more question for Ken H. : those of us that gave our info to Ken for the free parking permit...how do we go about it? Does the park have our numbers? Where do we park?

What does it mean... on 02/17/2012 12:34:42 MST Print View

when the box of brownies I'm bringing weighs more than my big three...in fact matches my big three plus a really heavy old thermarest?

I think it means I'd better not stumble on the way out there tonight. On the bright side, it's definitely less weight than I've dropped from my pack since joining BPL, so I'm still ahead of the game.

dk it means...; hoping to stop by Saturday on 02/17/2012 13:01:47 MST Print View

dk, it means you will most definitely win our vote for first place shared item - AGAIN. Those brownies were incredible last year.

Andrea and I are down to the wire as we have to work most of the weekend but we're hoping we'll be able to stop by and say hello around lunchtime Saturday.

Safe travels all, and huge thank you to Ken and Ken for organizing this and other outings - you guys have built a wonderful community and a tradition that just gets better and better every year.

Ken H:

Just referencing my prior email, I believe a group our size is allowed 2 support vehicles. If one is going to be available on Saturday, would you post the time here?

I'll be staying with a friend in the San Jose area this evening and hopefully I can check the site.

Thanks,

We're on our own.
Jim, I don't think it would be as early as 6 or 7; coffee, not wanting to wake others with the vehicle, late night drinking...
I will let Ken T. Know tonight that people are asking for the supporting vehicle in the morning. If for some reason we are not allowed to drive out, I will get a couple of folks to hike out with me to help carry stuff back in. If we walk out, we'll be there between 9 and 10.

See ya there

Is it safe to assume that water supplies will be there on Friday night? or is it possible that the only support vehicle is going out Saturday morning?
