I'm going to go ahead and try to book a site at Black Rock for Feb. 22nd and 23rd then. I believe each site can have 2 cars and 8 people so everyone that has expressed interest so far will be covered.

Joshua Tree Run Date Change??? on 12/11/2012 18:07:10 MST Print View

Hey everyone...
How would you all feel about the following weekend instead, running on Saturday, March 2nd? I'd then reserve a site for Friday the 1st and Sat. the 2nd.

We have another runner that can't make the 23rd but could do the 2nd.

Let me know so I can finalize (again).
Thanks.

Craig- is Adan coming by chance? Do you have any other folks that are coming? I wonder if Brian has seen the thread?

I wanted to change from Feb. to March so Adan could make it; I didn't know the 23rd is one of his daughter's birthdays. I haven't run with him in a while so it'll be good to train together some for this.

Don't know about Brian; we should message him.

Hope you can make it out Mike. I know it's a long way and it'll be a pretty low key gathering/run, but I think it'll be a good time. And warmer and sunnier than Montana.

I might join in... on 12/11/2012 22:29:55 MST Print View

Idk if I'll be in town but if I'm around that weekend I might jump in depending on how much I can get in shape between now and then. If not I'll probably organize another run of it in the fall (I'll be traveling a lot this summer). I have the advantage of living 5 minutes from the park.

I wasnt even sure i could post on here anymore after some of the developments lately.

Mike, I will be there for sure if its Mar 2nd. I hope to see you there buddy, had a great time sharing the trail with you on the last one. I hope to be injury free this time. Lots of time off the last several months, but running has been feeling real good lately. I too will be looking to just finish this one, really excited about it though.

John is ok with moving the date to March 2.
lets try and keep the date within the 2 weekends discussed if possible.

Thanks for being flexible everyone...Had to get ol' Adan in on this one.

Let's make it March 2nd then. I'll reserve the site within a day or two. I think one site should cover us; I doubt more than 8 will show at this point. If so, I guess the stragglers can arrange a site.

I'll be in Alaska on both of the proposed weekends!

This is a route I'd really like to do.....if for some reason it gets bumped fore/aft of those 2 weekends I'd be all over it.

Thanks for thinking of me!

Bumping it to March makes the proposition better for me. I'll say maybe.

I may decide to just come down for support if you guys are cool with that.

I wouldn't mind setting up at a strategic spot to provide water, fuel, first aid, shuttle, beer, whatever. This seems like the perfect run to dive into some longer distances but I'm still working my way up to that kind of mileage.

You could easily bail out at roughly the halfway point if you wanted to; Ryan campground is in that vicinity and the trail gets very close to it.

Come out Jacob. This is a perfect way to meet folks and run with a like minded group without any performance anxiety. We'll just be out for a good time.

Cool, cool. Thx for the invite, Adan (et all).

I'm not competitive about running, it's all about fun. The only reason I even took it up was because of what you guys did (the R2R2R). I was really inspired and motivated by that and thought it would be a great goal to set. Ok, I also wanted to trim down a bit without giving up on beer. That was *almost* as much of a motivating factor!

If I come out, I'd like to complete it. The bailout option is reassuring though, if a knee starts acting up or some other problem.

I guess you can mark me as "likely".

I have reserved site 81 in Black Rock Campground for Friday, March 1st and Saturday, March 2nd.
6 people, 2 cars max. Extra cars pay and be parked in overflow (though we'll likely be leaving one at the other end of the park for a night).

Right now we have:
Craig
Adan
Art
John
Mike (maybe)
Jacob (maybe)

Cheers.

Re: Joshua Tree Run on 12/15/2012 08:21:54 MST Print View

a couple of questions :) if I were to fly into Palm Springs, what would be a good time to fly in (assuming Friday?) to be picked up? also what would be a good time to fly out (assuming folks are leaving on Sunday?) also I could fly in on Thursday and get a motel, same goes for leaving on a Monday

do you plan on stashing water at the half way mark? I can make it 18-20 miles comfortably w/ a bladder and a handheld

also I can throw in a quilt and a pad pretty easy for a carry on- is someone bringing a shelter (if needed) that would have room for one?

danke
