Potluck Party in Brian's Cabin

  • November 3, 2012 · 1:00 PM
  • Cabin 35

Sziasztok!

Brian partijait nem kell bemutatni... Gyertek!!!

Itt az ideje u’jra összejönni egy jo' kis vacsora'ra! Isme't Brian ajánlotta fel a kabinját/ erdei ha'za't.


Ahogy mindig, hozzatok egy fogást! Bármilyen (leheto"leg magyar) étel, elo”étel, leves, desszert remek lesz. 30 emberre tervezte Brian, u’gyhogy ha mindenki hozza a következo" lista’n szereplo” dolgok egyike’t-ma'sika't, akkor csoda’s “batyus bulink” lesz!

- egy fogás, bármilyen magyar étel/ elo”étel, leves, akármi - jo'l becsomagolva, hogy ne boruljon bele a ha'tizsa'kodba!!!

- aki nem tud fo"zni, hozhat alkoholos vagy alkoholmentes italt

- desszert, pl. pogácsa, palacsinta, stb. mindig nagy sikert arat


A magyar i’zeknek mindig sikere van, teha’t pro’ba’ljunk azokhoz ragaszkodni!
Ha a receptet is hozzá tudnánk csatolni, az maga lenne a mennyország! :)

Nagyon jó lenne ha mindenki elore tudna’ jelezni az RSVP-je’ben hogy mit hoz, hogy mindannyian tudjunk aszerint készülni. (Ne hozzuk ha’rman ugyanazt!)

A pontosabb re'szleteket angolul, ez alatt ne'zze'tek meg!

Remélem sokan ra’e’rtek e’s jöttök!

 

***********************************************

Hi everyone!

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.


http://maps.google.com/maps?q=icehouse+canyon+trailhead,&rls=com.microsoft:en-us:IE-Address&oe=&um=1&ie=UTF-8&hl=en&sa=N&tab=wl&authuser=0


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)

Flashlight

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.

    Thanks Brian for another awesome event. All of you who came - what a great group! :D

    The hike up was beautiful! The warm greeting that we received when we reached our destination set the mood for the rest of the day; Brian was the perfect host! If I express how great the company and food was, I am afraid that there won't be enough room at the next event so I will not comment on that AT ALL!! ;) I will say however … that it was the perfect day! I felt relaxed and so content, that it was hard to leave and say good-bye! It was a beautiful day!

      Hol volt a kulcs ? Nem volt internetunk ! Probaltuk es probaltuk !! :(

  • Nanda D.

    Sajnos meg mindig nem tudom biztosan hogy mit hozok ebedre/vacsorara, de ma este elmegyek a boltba inspiracioert... Reggelire hozok szalonnaba csomagolt virslis falatokat es gyumolcsot. Hozok en is bort, a tobbit meglatjuk, ma este beirom.
    *** Sadly I'm still not 100% sure about my lunch/dinner contribution, except the wine, but I will swing by the store tonight and update my note accordingly. I am definitely bringing bacon-wrapped sausage bites for breakfast, with fruits and bread. Update coming tonight.

    November 2, 2012

    • Nanda D.

      Never updated this: coming with sausage, bacon mashed potatoes and rice (with peas) + wine for dinner; bread, bacon, jam and cheese for breakfast. Not much cooking... :-}

      November 3, 2012

  • Wendy K

    Ok. I am bringing Karfiol sonkával. However, I have NO idea at this point how I should transport it on the hike up to the cabin. I'm afraid it will spill in a plastic container. :/ Any suggestions are welcome!! How do you people do this?!! Totally excited for tomorrow! :)

    November 2, 2012

    • Nanda D.

      Brian, that's cauliflower with bacon

      November 3, 2012

    • Nanda D.

      I think most plastic containers seal pretty well, and if you wrap it in a plastic bad for good measure and put it in a backpack, it should survive just fine. :)

      November 3, 2012

  • Adrienn

    Hozok krumpli salatat, gyulai kolbaszt, vegyes csalamadet, egy kenyeret, meg egy muskotalyost. Bogracs van?

      Bogracs sajnos nincs es nem hiszem, hogy szabad nyilt langon sutni a kabinok korul, de a tobbi jol hangzik!

    We worked late on the set tonight. Just got home. Toying with the idea of still going tonight ..OR.. leaving very early tomorrow morning..

  • Kinga M.

    Hozok kokuszgolyot.

    Sent out an email last night with more details. Also sending another one shortly with the phone number of cabin to those that are attending. BREAKFAST: I have most of what I need to make a yummy breakfast. If people can bring a little bread, and a small container of milk it would help greatly. All I need is a couple people to bring a quart of milk for coffee creamer and so on. MOVING RIGHT ALONG: There is a wicker basket next to the cabin door which is used for TIPS. If you are eating breakfast, or if you feel generous, throw a little $$ to help defray the cost of groceries. :-)
    I'm sending e-mail with phone numbers now.

    November 2, 2012

    • Nanda D.

      Brian, what exactly are you willing to do for these tips? We seem to have a female majority... Have you seen the movie Magic Mike? We will come up with something for you to earn those tips with... :-D Just kidding!

  • Brian L.

    At this point does anyone have any more questions or concerns? I know some are asking when I am going up, but I still don't have a 100% answer for that yet. Please let me know if transportation is becoming a problem for you by posting here. Also some of you may want to meet others at the trail head if you have not been there before by coordinating arrival times and meeting spots. PLEASE: don't let the logistics discourage you from attending. Go for it!

    October 30, 2012

    • Nanda D.

      Don't worry about it, we will take care of the transportation / carpools. :)

      October 30, 2012

  • Nanda D.

    Everyone! Brian is too nice to say this, so I will: please do NOT rely on Brian to carpool with you! He prefers to go up the day before and take care of arrangements, and it is a lot of additional stress for him to have to worry about helping people get up there. He gave us directions, we can arrange carpooling among us, let's do that! If you'd like to carpool with someone, post here with your city and whether you plan to spend the night or not, so those who are also looking can contact you. Thanks!

    October 30, 2012

  • Nanda D.

    Sajnos Robi nem jon, most kaptam meg az uzenetet, ugyhogy levettem a csaladot a listarol. :-( Hianyozni fogtok!!!

  • Tom

    Stay overnight for sure :-)

    October 28, 2012

  • Fred K

    Brian, at this point I am probably about 80% sure I am going. With my work I never know 100%. I do have an SUV that can help you take things up. In addition I do have a large garden cart that can haul stuff from the parking lot to the cabin. Let's talk and coordinate.

    October 28, 2012

  • Brian L.

    Let's also get a head count of who is staying over night

    October 28, 2012

  • Brian L.

    ALSO: Even though we are saying to "arrive" at 1:00 PM, allow yourself extra time to travel and hike. You may want to leavve the house as early as 9:00 AM in order to enjoy the hike without rushing, and spend more of your time in the forest.

    October 28, 2012

  • Brian L.

    Hi Fred: I was planning to go up Oct 27th/28th in order to bring some of the heavier supplies, and do some general "house cleaning". Couldn't make it up , so I will be going up Friday night or EARLY Saturday Morning of the Meet-up event. Needless to say, unless someone wanted to car pool at those inconvenient times, I will not be able to facilitate bringing others with me. But lets talk before the week is out, and see what happens. IN ADDITION: Those that are going should start posting what food they are bringing. I am making Guylas leves. DRINK: Normally I have a reserve of alcohol up there, but not sure what I will have this time. I'm encouraging those to also bring a bottle of wine, or whatever. 12 packs of beer are not advisable due to weight. I do have extra back packs. 3 of them. Let me know if you need one. REMEMBER: Cel coverage does not exist up there. I do have a hard line. I will E-mail it to those attending on Friday.

    October 28, 2012

  • Fred K

    Hi Brian.
    When are you planning on going up there?
    If you are going up on Saturday morning, I
    may be interested in following you in my car.
    At this point I am pretty sure I can make it.
    Sometimes last minute plans can change.
