Topix Carcamp Sept 29-30

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.

Somebody tell Dragon he could do fine climbing Robin!! Who is Dragon, anyway? :lol:

if we stay near O.V. - we could do Kearsarge Peak via the mine rd(have not done this) - we could do Dragon depending on group size - lets see where we camp first

I will also scout out Bishop area while hiking there this weekend

too funny! :moon: DOH! :lmao

I'm going to call for reservations for that campground out of OV. Greys? Its low in altitude, but IF there's campsites available, we can drive up to OV in the morning and still do Snow Crown. If not I'll try for the Bishop area and take whatever we can get.

I'll share my Secret Spot with you guys, via e-mail, though. I've only driven there twice where people were camped there, and I go up there a lot.

Tomcat, you got me started on those jelly bellys and I can't stop! :retard:

back to packing!

Not looking good . . . :( only RV sites available at Greys. No tent sites. Four Jeffrey (big campground) and Willow (small) in Bishop are also booked for that weekend. Since I don't use campgrounds, those are the only ones I know of. The guy was checking on Willow, when I got cut off.

That Secret Spot will hold a lot of us if you have high clearance vehicles. Slight chance that someone might be there unless we get there first. I have to work that Fri so I can't get there early.

Another option is to go to the Buttermilks out of Bishop. There are no facilities out there, and its dirt roads. We can drive in the morning to hike. Since most of us will be sleeping in our vehicles, we just have to find a place with a few flat spots for the tents.

We probably should get a headcount/vehicle and tent count for this.
