2014 Member Meet-up 7/22-7/27

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'm in. I'm planning to enter via Cottonwood Lakes or Horseshoe on Monday July 21, climb Langley, and meetup at Wallace on the 24th. I don't have a permit yet, so I'm hoping to pickup one of the permits saved for the walk-in quota. My fingers are crossed -- I'm just one person, and it will be a Monday, so I hope it will work.

I'm planning to exit on Friday the 25th, via Tulainyo Lake and over Russell-Carillon Col. If anyone wants to join me for this route, PM me, or let's chat at Wallace on the 24th.

If anyone is interested in a car shuttle from horseshoe, or is willing to give me a ride back to horseshoe, please let me know asap.

Are you planning to go up Monday, otherwise how are planning to get a start at dawn
when the permit office opens at 8 am?


Yes, I am driving up from the Bay Area on Monday.

Will be going up Monday from the Bay Area, coming out Sunday.

Members should plan on setting up camp in the vicinity of the outlet of Wales Lake.

Most folks should be arriving either Wed afternoon or Thursday.

Wishing everyone a safe trip in, see you all there! :D
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.

It appears that Jim and I are teaming forces and I'll be attending this event.

Poor Callie has been put on the IR right before the big summer trip.

you will be attending!

Hi y'all,
My wife (Joy) and I will be there. We're coming off an unexpectedly busy period at work, so it'll be great to get into the mountains for a week. I'm just not sure how we'll respond to seeing a few dozen folks in the remote backcountry, where, as most of you know, you can go days without seeing another soul.
Looking forward to it!

Don't worry Cameron, 9 confirmed as of now, so we may not even get one
dozen, unless some folks are coming and have not said anything as of yet. ;)

I promise I'll leave the lights dimmed and the boom box at home. :D
