THOSE OF YOU INTERESTED IN THE GRAND CANYON MARCH OR APRIL

There's limited lodge accommodations down in the canyon... but a LOT more possibilities if we were to CAMP. I've done it twice and it was fantastic. There are plenty of "porta-potties" and everyone bathes (using bio-degradable soap) in the river; OR a couple people brought "home-made showers" which are available at a couple local sporting goods shops as well. PART of the group could do lodging, part of us camping... there's a 1-2 mile distance from lodging to camping area. Lodge people will have to hike to the camping area each day because the trails start there. Camping would be $160 cheaper based on 2 per room and $80 cheaper based on 4 per room (2 nights) CAMPING is not crowded and temperatures should be NICE.

WHO WOULD BE INTERESTED IN HIKING THE GRAND CANYON IN MARCH OR APRIL???

THIS is an AWESOME; ONCE IN A LIFETIME kind of hike... it's 12 gorgeous miles DOWN the canyon to the river with SEVERAL waterfalls. Slideshow of the scenery: http://picasaweb.google.com/hikingla/HAVASUPAIGrandCanyon#slideshow/5257069677389117218 and it's, of course... 12 miles back UP the canyon... I was thinking 4 days (Thurs, Fri, Sat, Sunday) Day 1) fly to Vegas / rent a van / drive to Peach Springs/ visit the Cavern 1/4 mile down the road / stay there the first night / have a beer on the Firetruck out front Day 2) get up early, drive an hour to the trailhead / hike the 12 miles / check into the lodge / frolic the rest of the day Day 3) play, swim, play, swim, play, take photos Day 4) hike the 12 miles up the canyon, drive back to Vegas and catch our flights back home THERE IS AN OPTION TO RIDE DONKEYS UP AND/OR DOWN THE CANYON, PLUS YOU CAN HAVE YOUR LUGGAGE CARRIED BY THE DONKEYS ALSO! estimated cost: Van, Hotels, Entrance Fee, Donkey luggage = $275

Would you be interested in playing beach volleyball?

Hello! A couple of members have mentioned that they are interested in beach volleyball. We would play on Saturday or Sunday afternoon north of the Santa Monica pier.
