1/13-1/15 - Backpack Catalina Island

 Catalina is off the coast of Southern California and compared to the mainland, it's about as close to wilderness as you get. Figure 3 days of 6-10 miles per day of hiking, lot's of scenic beauty, warmer weather than what we get in Seattle, plenty of Bison and other animals, great food and great company.

We figured out the schedule.

Fly from Seattle to LAX on Thursday 1/12 at 5:15pm

get to LAX at 8pm, go to the hotel

Friday 1/13 - catch the 10am Catalina Express Ferry to Avalon

Arrive Avalon around 11am, get hiking permit, buy stove fuel and last of food.

take shuttle to top of hill and hike to Blackjack campground - 7 miles

Saturday 1/14 hike to Airport in the Sky grab a bite, then hike to Little Harbor and camp - 9 miles

Sunday 1/15 hike to Two Harbors catch the ferry and then fly back to Seattle. - 7 miles

    I'll list the reservation numbers and the sites over the next day or two, I think I already put the info in on another meetup, been swamped.

    Sounds good, I have 2 site reserved for each night, I think that covers 8 people per site, as far as I know only 2 Seattle people actually purchased tickets.

    Go ahead and invite a few more people as with the airfares we tend to loose Seattle people.
