Go Camping

Nature is awesome.

Let's go on a Camping trip here: http://www.reserveamerica.com/campsiteDetails.do?siteId=396&contractCode=CA&parkId=120063

It costs $110 for a group reservation, so we will all have to split this. It will also cost money for gas, food, and any camping supplies you have to buy. Please budget at least $40 for this trip.

Please let us know if you have tents, extra sleeping bags, extra backpacks, etc.

If you are coming, you MUST SIGN UP here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AtG7LdgXCi1TdFBWeUtTRUg5WnBTNUdXUFJGWU9YR2c#gid=0

Here is what you will need:

WATER (6 Liters at least per person)

Tent

Sleeping bag

Thermarest

Sturdy shoes

Warm clothing

Cool clothing for hiking

Camelback/waterbottle

Sunscreen

Bug repellant

Raincoat

First Aid Kit

Snacks, or we could stop on the way to buy them as a car.

Portable stove Utensils/plate

Beer, Liquor, whatever

In terms of food, it may be best to organize it by car, and then do a quick run to the grocery en route to the campsite.

DIRECTIONS

The Park is located four miles east of San Rafael on the shore of San Pablo Bay.
From Highway 101, go east on North San Pedro Road for five miles until it enters the park.

    Hi Alex, I may need a ride. I'm off work at 1:30 and will be at Market and 8th.

      Hey Jennifer, we have space for 2 people in our car (but we are leaving from east bay, and we will probably be leaving around 1:30 from east bay. There is someone else who is driving from SF, please check out this spreadsheet to find them (and add your contact info to the spreadsheet too pls). here: https://docs.google.co...­

    Hi there! I would love to join this but work in downtown until 1 pm. Is anyone willing to drive out of SF at that time?

    Did we reserve a campsite? Any update on this?

    October 25, 2012

    • Blaine L.

      Awesome, I really like the china camp one, so let's do that! I'm going to go ahead and book it.

      October 26, 2012

    • Blaine L.

      Ok it's been purchased for $43. I'll collect $6 from everyone, so those who paid me $10 will get $4 back, we'll figure it out there. LETS GO CAMPING!!! Important--if you don't figure out your own tent and sleeping bag, you obviously won't have a place to sleep. If you have a tent and others can use it, please fill that out here: here: https://docs.google.co...­

      Also, check the list on the meetup page for everything you should bring with you when camping. Looking forward to tearing up China Camp State Park with you guys!

    • Blaine L.

      Thanks, we have 8 ppl. Can anyone step up to help me find a campsite that we can do a group reservation on for Nov. 3rd and 4th?

      October 22, 2012

    • Blaine L.

      good idea, were you able to get a reservation?

      October 22, 2012

  • Blaine L.

    So far, I have 2 payments, one from Amy and the other from Jamal. Let's keep em coming! (If I don't get payements to cover the gropu campground by this weekend, I might have to call it off, and I'll reimburse the payements) I hope I don't have to do this :) Let's commit and pay--venmo or paypal ([masked]), thanks!

    October 17, 2012

    • Blaine L.

      How much did you want for payment again?

      October 19, 2012

  • Blaine L.

    Hey guys, 6 people have paid so far. If you want to go, please pay me so I can make the reservation. you can pay me with [masked], venmo, or even splitwise.

    To the people who have paid, would you be OK with paying another $10 to reserve the campsite if it's just the 6 of us? I'll just take your word on it you can pay me when we get there.

    October 19, 2012

    • Matt B.

      I just paid

      October 19, 2012

    • Blaine L.

      Thanks Matt, ya you're right Jamel, can everyone who is driving email the people who have not paid? So far, the people who have paid are: Blaine, Dan, Harrison, Jamel, Matt, Shizzo, and Amy.

      October 19, 2012

  • Blaine L.

    Everyone w/ a car is now the event host, meaning if you have a car, you're in charge to get the food, booze, and everything else you need for your car, so pls get to know the people you are taking and work out with them all the deets. Thanks! Also, if you haven't paid me yet, please do, as we need to book the place asap.

    October 17, 2012

  • Amy Z.

    I have a Prius so space might be tight. Jamel what kind of car do you have? We might want to put a 5th person in yours rather than mine. All my camping stuff is pretty compact because its for backpacking, but I'm a little worried about fitting everything we need for 5 people...also beer.

    October 16, 2012

    • Amy Z.

      you are forewarned, if its between beer and a person, I'm choosing the beer.

      October 16, 2012

    • A former member

      I agree with that decision

      October 17, 2012

  • Matt B.

    I just added my car which seats 5 with tons of room for cargo...also beer.

    • Blaine L.
