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.

Bring lots of warm clothes. I can't believe how cold it was in the Mammoth area these past few nights and mornings!

Matlock and Bench have been cleared of fish?

I have not kept up on this fish removal issue, but it seems crazy!
Who picks where and what lakes will be cleared?

I have not stayed current with this issue - but I know it was discussed in length over on "the fishing hole" section of this forumn:
http://www.highsierratopix.com/communit ... gs&start=0

I think this is the second season for the nets in Matlock and I did not see any fish swimming nor anglers attempting Slim or Matlock

sad that I do not spend time dropping a line anymore - 10 years ago I would have died if not getting into back country lakes to fish. when I slow down from hiking and bagging peaks I will once again take to the lakes - I still have my favorites too
mountain hiking is addictive:
I can quit anytime I want - I just choose not to want

Trailbud and I will be in a white 4 door Rubicon with a winch or a wench on the front, the piece that doesn't wear the french maid outfit.

No, and that is clearly what it needs to keep running for another 130,000 miles!

I had to look up "Tuareg," which turns out to be a Berber speaking ethnic group. Is Trailbud some sort of Berber deity, who has portable worshippers?

For those that have not read this, pretty cool, first few paragraphs relate to Snow Crown.
