Maverick's 2019 Annual 7/25-7/26 HST Meet-up

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 just got the dates cleared with my work, and so I'm planning to be at this year's meetup. Yay!
:thumbsup: Sound good, also considering a similar entry route, but a lot depends on the weather and wildflowers. :nod:

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.

So, who has not chimed in yet, but is attending or still considering it?

With the late snow this year, I am NOT attending because my other trips have been backed up into those dates. I hope everyone has a great meet-up. Maybe next year.

Hope it doesn't still look like this in that area in July!


Also, those lakes were already on the list I hope to do this Summer so maybe I can finally make one of the meetups!

Slow to respond, but it looks like I'll be able to make the meetup again this year.

...Or at least try to, :p. Hopefully I don't wind up half a mile short again, heh.

I feel compelled to say this. Remember folks, the meetup is a desire, not an end all, be all. There is still a lot of snow out there, so make safe decisions, even if it means you don't make it. We are looking at snowpack on a daily basis and Lisa and I will do what we feel is safe given the conditions. We have several options baked into our plans and all are up in the air depending on what we experience out there.

Yeah, the NE side of Elizabeth Pass does look a bit daunting in Caltopo at present. Looks like a trip to bring the whippet pole or ice axe.
