    Here are the plans for those who have been confirmed. Arrive Thurs. Set up my camp, and hang out.

    Sat 8 AM and leave for Hetch Hetchy hike. Please, pack a lunch, as this is a day trip. Back to camp and head over to Yosemite for Meadow Sunset picnic and time in Yosemite.
    Sun 9 AM and then off for Glacier Point, Indian area, hikes and time in Yosmite. We do not need to stick together for anything we do. If biking and have a rack, see if anyone driving will transport your bike and you.

    No trails for bikes, but can use in Yosemite.

    I have a four man tent I can share. I'll bring my mountain bike too, I don't know if there are any trails though. I will be there Friday to Sunday and I'll be in a small car so I won't be able to give anyone a ride.

    May 18, 2013

  • tom f.

    I will try for Thursday to Sunday, other wise it will be Friday to Sunday. I'll bring my mountain bike, four man tent, a large cooler, a volleyball, a basketball, a small gas grill, and all the usual camping stuff. I plan to drive in a little celica so there is not much more I can fit. I am really excited! This will be my first time to Yosemite in about 25 years.

    Sounds awesome! Thanks for organizing! I am down for Fri, Sat, Sun and Mon. I will get Friday off and I already have Monday off. I would like to bring my bike. I can share a tent, but mine is not big enough for sharing. I have a bike rack that holds two bikes, maybe three?? My car can carry four people, but not four people and four people's stuff. Or I will ride with someone else, too, that's fine. What is everyone else's situation?

      Got payment Laura H N Mike D. How big u r tents?

      May 2, 2013

    • Laura H.

      Mine is big enough for me and my stuff, so not big enough to share. It seems like if we fill RSVP, we'll all have to share. Can I share with you, Sue, if I can't use my own?

      May 6, 2013

  • Mike D

    Sent payment of $ 60 for the weekend. My tent is only large enough for two persons. I can share it with someone, or does someone have larger tent they can bring and share?
