Brian's Parties need no introduction... Just come!!!
It's Potluck Time again and Brian is hosting it in his cabin in Mt Baldy.
As usually, please bring some food (preferably Hungarian!): soup, casserole, dessert, anything. Brian is hosting it for 30 people, so if everyone brings one or tow of the following for the group, we will have a great event!
1. A Hungarian appetizer, main dish, soup, salad, or other food - wrap it well, so it doesn't leak out!
2. If you can’t cook, some alcoholic or non-alcoholic drink
3. Dessert, e.g. pogacsa, palacsinta, etc
Let’s stick to Hungarian flavors (plenty of recipes online, or you can buy something from Duna Csarda or Maximillians, Alpine Village or Jon’s) and please note in your RSVP what you plan to bring (so we don’t have three of us bringing the same thing.)
If you could bring the recipe too that would be perfect!
When: November 3rd, 2012, 1PM Arrival time
Where: IceHouse Canyon, Cucamonga Wilderness, Mt Baldy, Cabin 35
The main parking lot will be most likely be full. So as an option, you can park in the cabin owner parking lot. This picture shows the entrance to the trailhead. Stop in front of the yellow stop blockade. LIFT it out of the ground and place to the left. Drive through, and replace sign. Then drive to the end of the road several hundred feet, and park. Be sure to put something in your windshield that says, CABIN 35 Permit Holder. You will not need to buy a wilderness pass if you do this.
The trail head is well marked. Start your hike!
Please let it be known that families and small children complete this hike, and actually pass our cabin for an additional 2.5 miles up trail!
It is only .8 miles to the cabin. (less than a mile). Although it is up hill, and high elevation, it is only a fraction of what others are doing. Will your heart beat faster? Yes. Will your breathing rate rise? Yes. Will you have fun? Yes.
The hike will take anywhere from a half hour to an hour fifteen, depending on your ability.
Let's enjoy our heritage in nature. There is an option to stay the night. My cabin will sleep up to 6 without sleeping bags on the floor. I'm opening up two additional cabins which will give us an extra 9 to 12 spaces to crash after some heart felt partying.
Cabin 35 is a mile hike UPHILL on a moderate backbacking trail. There is no cel coverage, but there is a hard-phone line that you can get by e-mailing me.
Things to Bring:
Good walking boots
back pack, (it could be a day pack, rucksack or real back pack. I've seen people bring up suitcases, or duffel bags. Not advisable. Go on craig's list, you can get them as low as $10.00. I have 3 extra.
Sleeping bag if your going to stay the night. Iv'e got 4 extras. First come first serve.
First aid kit, (a few band aids, and any daily medications)
Water, (just for the hike..there is plenty to drink up there)
candle: gift for cabin
bottle of wine or ??
For the potluck, everyone should prepare something Hungarian, OR we might cook together up there. Let’s work that out on the message board here.
Details of organization will be addressed here within the meetup page, such as car-pool postings, and menu items.
See you there!
DIRECTIONS: PLEASE STUDY, PRINT AND KEEP HANDY ON THE TRIP. You will be tested!
From Los Angeles: Check your local map to plan a route to the 210 freeway traveling east from Pasadena. As you enter the town of Upland, look for Mountain Avenue, “Mt Baldy” exit and take it North. (Careful, there is another Mountain exit in Arcadia)
Follow directions “B” below From San Diego County: Take the 15 freeway North towards Riverside to the 210 freeway. Take the 210 West towards Los Angeles. As you enter the town of Upland, look for the Mountain Avenue, "Mt. Baldy" exit and take it north. Follow directions “B” below Directions “B” You will be traveling 1.9 miles north on Mountain Avenue through the suburbs of Upland. Make a left or Euclid Avenue continuing past the fire station, the river bed and upwards to Baldy Road. Make a right on Baldy Road into the mountains towards Baldy Village. Several miles after Baldy Village you will enter the parking lot for Icehouse Canyon.
The entrance to the parking lot is just before the road hairpins to the left up to the Chairlifts. Make sure you do not keep going up to the lifts. There is a little road block right there where a wonderful lil’ lady by the name a Dee Hanson sells honey, and “Wilderness Pass” parking permits. You will want to grab one of these permits for $5.00.Park your car in the parking lot making sure to display your pass in the windshield.
Enter the trailhead a Icehouse Canyon. You will hike a mile up a well-marked trail. The path stays fairly close to the stream. About 7/8 of a mile up, you will see a sign signaling a junction: left, up the slope, is the Chapman Trail to Cedar Flats (I mile) and the “high route” to Icehouse Saddle; right, straight ahead, is the old trail up the canyon. Do not go up to Cedar Flats. Just 50’ beyond the sign, to the right, is cabin 35, and the destination for your afternoon.
Tips for the trip:
Try not to do shopping for food, treats, clothes, the day of the event. things always take longer to accompllish. This is ONE time that is not fashionable to be late. Shop and prepare the day before. On the day of travel, start early figuring every step of the way.. everything you do will take longer than expected. If you are unsure about what to bring, or how to bring it, contact Brian.
I hope many of us can make it there.
