Adventure Trips Discussion and Planning Meeting

  • October 12, 2014 · 2:00 PM
  • Bill's house

Over the past three years our group has ventured out and hiked some incredibly beautiful places including the National Parks of Utah, Grand Canyon, Redwood National Park, The Eastern Sierras, Oregon, and most recently the Canadian Rockies, Olympic, North Cascade, and Mount Rainier National Parks in Washington. With 2015 quickly approaching I am hoping we can again keep the tradition alive and do a series of trips starting with the beginning of the New Year. If you are interested in joining or finding out more information about one of our trips you are invited to join us at my house as we discuss possible destinations during the 2015 calendar year. In the past couple of years we have done trips during the first week on January, Easter Break, and several trips during the summer. This year I am hoping to do a few more week-end trips and would appreciate everyone's feedback.   The purpose of the meeting is to bounce around some ideas so please come prepared to share your own thoughts and proposals. The other purpose of the meeting is to ask questions and provide those who have gone on one of our trips an opportunity to share your experiences with others. Personally, I have enjoyed all the trips and suspect others would say the same. Hope to see you at the meeting and hear what you have to share!

    I'm out of town this weekend, so I can't make the trip. Here's something of interest: http://www.tongarirocrossing.org.nz/
    Based on elevation and several hikes in the area, this is a good trip for all levels. I'm thinking summertime.

    I dont do back pack either. I am with you on this one Bill. Grand Canyon is wonderful I know people have done it but there are some new people. I only did mules I think hiking it would be much better. You can stay at Phantom Ranch for the night must book early and plus you can share they have great steak dinners. May is a good time for that. How about the San Gabriel mountains also.

    Have you considered backpacking trips? I'd like to do a portion of the JMT next summer

    • Bill B.

      Hi Kim, "I" don't do backpack trips because I broke my back years ago and subsequently had to give up backpacking...We do have some other 15 or so organizers who can schedule backpack trips if they want to...Also, I think a number of us have come to really enjoy the hot showers and eating out at restaurants that come with our car camping trips.

    • Kim

      There is a lot to be said for hot showers :)
