Hi everyone:

2 things:

1. I have a only a heavyish tent. If anyone has a light tent they are willing to share with me I'll share the load. E-mail me also about ...

2. I live in Hollywood. Smallish car (miata) but happy to drive / rideshare.

Looking forward to the trip.

Eric,

I can share a tent with you.  It is just five pounds, but it's pretty roomy for two people at that weight.  And I will excitedly take you up on the offer to "share the load!"

Hi Everyone,

The storm system that finally moved into SoCal today (Thursday) is supposed to last until Monday.   ARGH.

Paul and Everyone,

I know... I know...  What a bummer all this rain is.  I'm not calling it until I see what it looks like on Sunday.  Hang in there...

Hi All,

The web forecast, and the meterologist where I work, still says rain through Monday.   :(

Could consider doing a day hike, then a wine tasting afterwards at the campground.  Does anyone have a large eazy-up?

Paul... you could be right.  And I like the way you think as far as an alternative goes...

Hi all,
Camped there a few weeks back,there is NO water available at the campground.The 2 mile hike straight in does follow a stream though & is very easy with a short steep bit just after the water fall.There are about 11 campgrounds that will only fit one tent,they are secluded so you would have to set up camp and all hang around one ,but i think there are a few group sites.Would love to go as i'm new to the club,this would be my first club outing,but it seems i may be to late for this trip.The camp site is at about 1000 feet but in a valley,so when the sun goes down so does the temp.Hope i've been some help

Hi Alan,

Welcome to the trip!  (And to the Outdoors Club.)  Thanks for the insider info - it is great to hear from another person that's been up there before because I haven't been up there myself yet.  Are there any good sources of water to filter near the group campsites?  How far is the stream from the group campsites?  (My plan was to just carry water in, but if filtering is an option, I'd much rather go for that.)

It will be great to have you along - I'm glad you signed up!

Hi Megan,
Thanks for letting me in :-) There is a pond about 5 mins down from the campgrounds but it looked very stagnant,how much faith do you have in your water filter?I think the stream starts from there but you cannot gain access to it untill about a mile down.There my be a stream that feeds the pond but i didn't see one.I,m going to pack my water in,the hike & distance means it will not be to hard,plus there are lots of reasons to take breaks.
Thanks for the warm welcome
Alan

Megan,

I'm receiving trip confirmation e-mails, so I assume that I have made it from the wait list to the active list. If that's incorrect, please let me know.

I have some egg carriers and would be happy to bring eggs, cheese, and salsa for breakfast. I have a very light Snow Peak stove that I can bring.

I'll also haul along a bottle of wine, in an appropriate container.

Thanks a bunch,

Dave
