We are full with a short waiting list, so if you can't make it and would like to sell your spot contact the first person on the waiting list and have them pay me for the spot at the current price via Amazon Payments....then email me.

    It was one of the funist times I've had. Just like the Yosemite trip. Thanks to all of you.

    Shelli, Mark and Lee where did you guys go after the hike? It blew my mind to run into on the highway. I went to Treasure Island on the way back and took another 500 or so shots. Just got home around 10PM. I am exhausted but it was worth it. I cracked up when I got back to my car and saw the sign on my car. People kept looking at me on the way back :). Thanks to one and all for a great weekend.

      Lee and I tried to stop Shelly from violating your car, but she's like a hiking Ninja, in and out before we knew what tagged you. :O

      September 23, 2013

    • Shelly F

      There you go again Mark, telling our secrets. Thank you again Wendy for all the photo tips.

      September 23, 2013

  • Wendy D

    I may be gullible but not gullible enough to believe you would ever try and stop someone from getting into trouble. You would be right their orchestrating it.

    • Lee M.

      Ha! I like you, Wendy! And you're pretty darn smart.

  • Mark S.

    Hey Peeps, I'm bringing my bike rack and my bicycle, and have plenty of room for more. I'm sure I'll have room in the bed of the truck as well.

      Filter has been placed, and I apologize if I offended anyone. That would definitely be the first time I have ever done that :O

      September 16, 2013

    • Mark S.

      Ooops, just saw the Bear reference. Read twice, reply once. My bad.

      September 16, 2013

  • Kelli L.

    Gary, please clarify the blast-off time. At the top it says 8:00a.m. and then further down it says depart REI at 7:00 a.m. Thank you sir! (I'm counting the days......) :O)

    September 16, 2013

    • Gary P.

      Changed the body to 8am... From REI Blast off???

      September 16, 2013

  • Athena

    It's true. Sadly, I have to cancel my RSVP for this trip, which I will do in the next few minutes. The good news is somebody on the waiting list gets to go! First one who pays their fees gets my spot. Have fun!

    September 13, 2013

  • Sonja V.

    I visited the lighthouse last weekend while camping at Costanoa which is just a few miles down the street. Although quite cloudy in the morning, this area is breathtaking. I would love to join you all if a spot opens up. If not, would it be possible if I just stayed at the campground and met up with you all for the hikes?

    September 13, 2013

    • Gary P.

      Sure PM me for your funds instructions. We'd love to have another guest. Can't guarantee times we'll be where, or cell coverage to find us. Also don't think the hostel will let us have additional guests at the dinners and movies. But if all you want is the hikes and you're wiling to be active in figuring out where we are and when, become a full member and pay for this event... bring it. If Athena has to cancel due to work you'll need to become a full member and buy her out. It will be worth it. Plus you'll love the group. Some of the finest people you could ever know.

  • barbara j.

    thanks but make me feel bad first don't worry I got over it fast.
    Kaiser Vacaville is right off 80 1st Vacaville exit, Leisure town road. You can just slow down and I will throw everything in the back and jump in

    September 12, 2013

  • barbara j.

    Gary I live in Vacaville and I don't want to drive 50 minutes in the opposite direction, so I planned on driving myself. If anyone wants to pick me up and drop me off in Vacaville otherwise I am more than okay with driving myself

    September 12, 2013

    • Gary P.

      Well let's see... yeah drive extra, spend precious resources and um waste time.. sounds like what I would Wink Wink!!

      September 12, 2013

    • Gary P.

      I can pick you up Barbara... PM me a place where it's easy on and off the highway so we don't hold up others.

      September 12, 2013

  • Wendy D

    I have two spaces in my car as well.

    September 12, 2013

  • Gary P.

    I have space for two possibly three in my car... Any takers?

    September 12, 2013

  • Wendy D

    HI I am confused it says two spots available with three people waiting. Is there space on the trip?

    September 4, 2013

    • Gary P.

      Yes, those on the waiting list have been notified and the spaces are open to them. They must take action and have not so the spaces are open to anyone. :)

      September 5, 2013

  • barbara j.

    I live in Vacaville. I will meet at Pigeon Point or Pescadero State Beach for the morning hike. What time do you think you would get to Pescadero State Beach

    September 4, 2013

    • Gary P.

    I need to carpool. Will be at REI.

    July 22, 2013

  • Kathy C.

    So how many spots do I have? My son made the waiting list, but I'm bringing a friend in his place, if I have 2 spots..?

    July 16, 2013

    • Gary P.

      Please excuse me Kathy. I should have sent you a note explaining how I had to set this up for Ethan. It is confusing I would agree. Since Ethan does not have a Meetup account I had to add him as your guest to reserve his spot. If this is not a clear enough explanation I would be happy to explain more either here or by phone (916)[masked]
