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.

This sounds like a great idea and I'm highly tempted, given that I really like that area. Looks like they'll be a great crew in there. However, if I really do get my one designated backpack on the summer back (for the first time since 2008), I am aiming to go some place I haven't been to before: At the top of my list right now is a loop that goes: Edison to Mills Creek Lakes (haven't been there)-Gabbot Pass (not been that way)-Bear Basin (visited very little of it)-Pinnacles Creek/Turret (haven't been there) to Florence, but I may think of something that gets me more excited as the time nears. I also have no idea what my research/conference/etc. schedule is this far in advance, as well as the schedule of my ace death march buddy who hasn't been on a trip with me since accompanying me on Tunechuck in 2008.
Since my fishing (etc.) website is still down, you can be distracted by geology stuff at: http://www.fresnostate.edu/csm/ees/facu ... ayshi.html

Great idea maverick! Although it's hard to confirm that far out I'm definitely interested.

Mav,
Great idea. On another forum we have 2 meetings a yr. In October (Rocktober) and just last month. It's nice to put faces with the like minded and also to extend personal thanks to those who have helped/encouraged me go some places I wouldn't have dreamed of.

Hey GB, Bluewater, and Austex, thanks for the interest. Hopefully by May everyone
will have a clearer view of their schedules and folks can make a solid commitment.
It would be great if you could make this part of your trip to the Sierra from Texas
Austex, this place is well worth it.
So what do I need to tempt you with John to put this trip at the top of your list, how
about climbing Mount Russell, finding Larry's register entry and writing something
next to it in his memory. :nod:

Mav, I would just set the date and go for it! There will be Topix crew there for "tea" at dusk and a ton of TRs to follow, regardless. How we all get there, and what happens after the rendezvous will be the real adventure.

I'm definitely interested since this area is on my list of areas I still need to visit. I may even have to take on ascending Shepherd Pass to get there.

Freestone, will now expect you be the person in charge of tea time! :)
Jimmeans, looking forward to seeing out there next year. :thumbsup:

Wish Callie could come to, I love dogs too. The next meet-up will be dog accessible so
Callie will be able to attend the 2015 one. :)

I'm interested - a shuttle or swap key situation would be great.

I'm also interested. I've been through the Wright Lakes area but didn't get the chance to visit the lakes. I've wanted to go back.
