    Default Any interest in a CA camp trip?

    BUMPING AND OLD THREAD!

    I don't know of a good location, but I am sure some of CPF members do. Here is what I picture CPF members + camping and actually using their lights + night time trail walking?

    Would there be anyone one interested in a camping trip?

    I can just imagine that many CPF'ers and there flashlights in one place at night. The local cops' phones will be ringing off the walls with UFO sighting reports!!! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    Might be interesting... I'd be willing to go if it could be up somewhere close to Lake Tahoe or maybe a little north of there.

    Find some place with some old mines and we can really get some use out of our lights. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

    Now if I can just find my Gore-Tex lined tent.....

    You can check out the Lassen area... Lassen Volcanic National Park... Some more braver souls can hike up Lassen Peak...

    There's always Yosemite NP. A ton of campgrounds there to choose from. CPFers can always to up to Glacier Point and try out their lights there to Half Dome...

    There's always the coastline, but there's few areas to camp out on, like Redwood State Parks or camping along the shores.

    Then there's Kings Canyon/Sequoia NP. Very little access roads (2, in fact), but a few grounds to choose from.

    I haven't been down to SoCal much, but the San Leandro area might be a good ground. And the Angeles National Forest might be, also...

    There's lots of places....

    sounds like fun! I'm in the Bay Area, so Yosemite, Tahoe, any of those places sounds cool.....

    This would be a good excuse to use my purchased-three-years-ago-but-never-used tent!

    I picture a group sitting around a campfire with a bowl of beans in lap and intrinsically safe torch in hand. (Blazing Saddles comes to mind). I'm in! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    Hmmh - this is the first PK @ CPF sighting in 3 months - what does this tell us ? All engineering marvels resolved for the time being ? I would love to be able to attend a get-together with the gentlemen so far posting here - and I´ll second Barts proposal - nice camping grounds in europe too.

    What great timing. I was trying to setup a camping trip in the next couple of months. I'd love to go to yosemite again, but reservations are tough unless you get a cancellation. Sequoia and Kings are really nice, and not very crowded, so it'd be easy for large groups of people. It might be getting a little to close to summer for the desert. I'm interested, but anything further north of Tahoe would be too far away.

    I always wanted to see the California wilderness. Are tactical flashlights still legal in California? [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/icon15.gif[/img]

    With just CPFers in the California, Nevada, Arizona, Oregon quadrangle, there's at least 15-20 people that can go...

    Oh great. Now there's going to be a CPFer camping trip when I've got all this medical issues. Arthritis of feet and knees, really bad disc problems, slight leaking heart valve and now type 2. My service days of pup tents and mud are over, how about just camping in someone's back yard? Seriously, this does sound good depending on where you finally decide on.

    Wow, what a great response, even Mr SF (PK) is going!, I am free for the whole summer because I couldn't get any summer school classes.

    I'm ready to go when you set the date/place. I was thinking about somewhere in the Eastern Sierras, i.e. Mammoth Lakes area where there are hundreds of trails, or up in Yosemite, as mentioned previously...

    I'll keep checking in...

    I second the motion for Mammoth Lakes.
    Depending on when and where, will try to make it.

    Sounds like fun to me! I'll be up in Mammoth july29-Aug. 2 for the blues and brews festival called Bluesapalooza. There's lots of good mountain biking, hiking, and horseback riding. Kayaking on Mono Lake is fun too.

    I haven't been to Lassen in a while, that would be fun too. I think Yosemite as way too crowded.

    For Yo'Smite, you need to get out of the Valley; otherwise, you'd be smited by all the cars trying to cram into the campgrounds... I'd usually stay in Tuolumne Meadows or the outlying areas (Bridalveil Creek, Yosemite Creek, ect)...

    Mammoth Lakes looks really tempting...

    As a So Cal resident, I would like to suggest Sequoia Nat'l Park which is more in the middle


    Also, rather than fight the crowds during the peak season of summer, we should plan this in the next few weeks(early June) or the second/third week of September; my vote for September which would allow more time to plan

    Also a socal resident, a more central location would be great. Sept might be too late for me though, school will be starting again. So my vote is for June.
