Announcing a new Meetup for North County Adventure and Fitness!What

: Tuesday, September 7,[masked]:00 AMWhere
: Eastern Sierra InterAgency Visitor Center
Highway US 395 1 mile south Lone Pine
Lone Pine, CA 93545
The good news - Jackie has made available her permit for Lone Pine Trailhead for Mt. Whitney.
The not so good news - At this moment, there is only one of the six spots left. Now, there may be some openings in the next few days so keep checking. As it stands, here is who is going:
Jackie plus friend
One more lucky soul.
Here's the basic info - The plan is to head up the day before and acclimate at a campsite-to-be-named-later at about 10,000 plus feet. The next day head up from the main trailhead and do an overnighter to the top (more details to come). The permit ends on Sept 8th, so we will have to head back. Then have a great dinner before heading back home. Or, maybe head further up 395 and continue the experience. I guess we will play it by ear.
Not a lot of details here, so we will have to have a pre-meetup meetup to make sure we are all on the same page. Also, I think it would be best to carpool/caravan up there as well.
Again, if anyone drops, I will post it immediately. If you are interested, or even if you aren't, stay in touch.
See you out there,
