Maverick's 2018 Annual Meet-up 7/26-7/27

A forum to initiate member meet-up. Looking for a hiking/climbing/fishing/skiing/etc. partner, or are you planning a trip where you wouldn't mind having some company? Last minute invites can be just as fun as a well-planned group trip (sometimes even better) so don't be shy! And be sure to post a trip report to the appropriate forum when you get back.

I will not be able to attend the Meet-up, my wife had a surgical procedure scheduled for this Thursday, Kaiser called this morning to rescheduled for next Thursday...
Damn Maverick, we imagine that is a huge disappointment for you. We're really sorry, and we all hope your wife's procedure is a perfect success, and as painless as can be.
Thanks a lot for all you do in organizing these trips. You have chosen a wonderful location, and it was thoughtful of you to have made it a "dog friendly" place this time. Best of luck, the Harlens.

Bummer that Mav can't attend.

I am planning to be there as rehab from the 2nd surgery continues to go well. To make it easy I'll enter via Edison. I should get to Grinnell Thurs afternoon and will have until Sunday to explore and goof around.

Yes it is, was really looking forward to meeting folks I haven't met before, including the dogs, and also those who I have, but "Ce la vie", can't dwell on it, just look forward to next years Meet-up. :nod:
Also, thanks for the kind words for my wife Harlen.

I don't give out specific route information, my belief is that it takes away from the whole adventure spirit of a trip, if you need every inch planned out, you'll have to get that from someone else.

Hey All,
Unfortunately I cannot attend this year's meetup. You may have noticed I've been relatively silent on HST this season; I became very sick in mid-June, and even landed in the hospital. I'll make a full recovery within the next few weeks, but in the meantime I'm taking heavy antibiotics and working to regain my core strength. Don't worry, I'll be OK... but, sadly, backpacking is off the menu for me until August. I was very much looking forward to seeing you all at this year's meetup. Have fun without me, and stay safe!

Rich, we'll look for you at the Mills Creek Lakes. (Jimr, Ghost and I should be descending Gabbott Pass to Mills Creek Lakes around Tuesday, and staying that night there.)

I hope you all have a great time. I could not get off work for this week, so my Sierra visit had to be delayed by a few weeks. A number of other things also conspired. However, I'll be in the meeting area in about 3 weeks, likely spending a night on Volcanic Knob around 8/17 looking down at the meeting location.

Ok so where was everyone? Ended up with myself and friend, rich long, rocky road, Dave Ayers, cameronn, and I am sorry someone else. Hobbes? Andy? Almost there? Jimr and friends? Great trip as always, now I need to write up last years and this years.
