I have received numerous requests the the GGG should be bi-annual. This suits me fine. So maybe this one we could do in October?

And I like doing the other one in January

This one is at Point Reyes. Oct.19-21 2012. Coast Camp, spot 13.


Another Edit. I have a couple of open spots

"I have received numerous requests the the GGG should be bi-annual."

So the GGG swings both ways. How California....

I think it would be wonderful if we could have an event as memorable as that motorcycle rally The Wild One is loosely based on.

If it's middle to late October, I might come down for it! I will want to visit my daughter in Petaluma about then!

Early October in the Pacific Northwest is Alpine season in northern Washington, so no way would I go elsewhere then! For those who haven't seen our larch trees that turn gold in the fall (IMHO, rivaling the mallorn trees in Lord of the Rings), come on up! The Alpine larch (at higher elevations) is usually best in early October, while the Western larch (at lower elevations) is best about mid-October.

I realize this might not be the best weekend to put the question out there. I'll bump again next week.

Happy Easter.

I'd like a second event as well. Trinity Alps certainly was beautiful mid-October last year. Perhaps rotating locations to include other members and to see some different country as well?

Go back to our roots for a limited number of guests at beautiful Point Reyes. Attendance will be limited, as the rules are more enforced here.
Somewhere between 30-50 people.

I need to make the reservations mid April if we want any chance of getting the space we want.

Thinking about October 19-21, that's a Friday through Sunday.

Have family fun planned for the big 5.0!

I like Wildcat better - the group sites seem to be closer together.

OK. So the consensus is that Wildcat suits everyone fine. I'll do the reservation thing next week. I will then update here.


Edit: Guest list is full right now. I'll update that if/when it changes.

OK. So I made the reservation today. Went with a group spot at Coast Camp. Spot number 13. Spot at Wildcat was already taken.
This gives us room for 25. Let me go through the messages and see what we are up to.

I know it is still a long way off, but I'm already excited to see you all again.
