Our Havasupai Adventure trip is approaching fast so let's get together for some thai food while working out some details like roommates, tent-mates, carpooling, and gear exchange etc. You are welcome to join us even if you are not going on the trip and just want to know more about it.

The Plan:
We'll start off with some Thai food at the restaurant while getting to know each other a little. This will be a perfect time to discuss carpooling, roommate, tent-mate, backpack arrangements, as well as, an opportunity for people to bring up any extra gear they might have available for someone else to borrow or buy. If you are lacking a few things this is a good time to bring it up in case someone else can lend it to you or share. Also, we can discuss sharing certain items like camping burners etc. so we don't all have to bring everything and can lighten our loads.

After dinner we can then go to each other's cars etc to do the exchanges. So make sure you bring a list of items you need and any spare items you have that someone else can borrow. It would not be a bad idea to print out the list of suggested Items I provided in the Havasupai trip write-up and use that as a starting point. We'll go over that list. If you have any other suggestions to items to bring feel free to bring that up as well.

Time Required:
I expect a couple of hours or so.

Click here for Google directions to the restaurant.
The restaurant is upstairs above the Thai grocery store. You can call them at[masked]-9000.

As this is a Sunday, parking should be a little better than usual. There is street parking around there but if you are having a hard time finding a spot I suggest parking at Ralphs (NW corner of Hollywood Blvd. and Western Ave.) There is free underground parking with a lot of spaces.

The red-line metro station is right there so you may also just take the train.

Hope to see you all there.

    Hi fellow backpackers! hope you have great fun meeting today. I can't make it but please take me into consideration in your planning and feel free to call or text me on my cell at[masked] 9601. I would like to join a carpool, drive or ride and share the motel room in Kingman. I'm also bringing my JetBoil with 2 fuel canisters to share. We may need a couple more canisters for everybody. Also if you want to include me in any other sharing scenarios let me know. Thanks!
