Not if its the weekend that is scheduled. (May 8th) I'll just be getting back from my 4-corners trip. Push it to the 15th and I'd say yes.

Re: 2010 Forum Meetup Weekend

We can make it either weekend but the 15th is better for us. Have we confirmed the dates?

I am ready to start loading up.

Regards,

Keith

Re: 2010 Forum Meetup Weekend

I have a very good friend that lives on the Reservation right next to the Canyons Rim , his name is Jeff Terrel and he owns several business's there one of which is the only Towing Service in the area . I spoke with Jeff today and told him of the Forum members plans and he told me to let all of you know that he would happy to help anyone that may be in need . Jeff is one of best and most interesting people that any of you might ever want to meet and his offer would be based on his hope that all would have a great time in the Canyon . If you would like I will get Jeff's contact information for you guy's .

Re: 2010 Forum Meetup Weekend

An update on our Southwest trip. We hooked up with a group from Outdoor Adventures USA for a 10-day guided tour through Canyon De Chelly, Red Rock Valley, Monument Valley and Keet Seel. There is still one more spot available if anyone is interested.
Here is a link to the trip details.
http://www.oausa.net/forums/viewforum.php?f=125

As for a Norcal weekend on May 15th, unknown to me, Dina bought tickets for a Giants game that weekend, so I'm booked. I'd be happy to organize a weekend event after that. May 22 is open for me but Dina works that weekend (& every other one). The 29th is okay with us, but it is the three-day weekend. (Good an Bad points) Let me know, PM or email or we could start a separate thread for a California Mini-meet.

Re: 2010 Forum Meetup Weekend

Charlie ,
I just got off the phone with Jeff Terrel and he said to contact him with any needs that the Forum group might have when you get to the Canyon and surrounding area .He told me that I should post his web site for all of you http://www.speedysalesandservices.com He and his family are great people and Jeff is the kind of person that never ceases to amaze me with his good nature and resource fullness , I sent him information regarding Military Surplus Wreckers last evening for in the extreme locations that people frequent on the reservation and he told me that the National Park Service is no longer providing any towing service in the canyon due to law suits involving the damage done to the publics vehicles .

  • Accessible for 2wd vehicles.
    12 sites can hold 2 vehicles each.
    Off the beaten path.* We went in 3 BML campgrounds and only saw two other vehicles on the weekend.
    Low cost.* $8 per night.* $4 if you have a annual pass from the feds. (no one came by so we could have skipped out but didn’t)
    Piped running water
    Table
    Fire Rings
    New (relatively) pit toilets
    Trailhead to hiking trails
    Mountain bike trails nearby
    Town of Shelter Cove nearby with Ocean and beach access
    Class 2 and 3 roads for some easy back-country driving
    Nice views, not nearly as spectacular as the Sierras, but nice
    Mattole river for fishing
    Close to California Redwoods State Park for scenic drives
    About 4.5 hours north of the Golden Gate

Hey, even a Bigfoot Encounter story.
http://www.bigfootencounters.com/sto...ingrangeca.htm
Is the date set for the 8th or 15th? I hope the 15th. The 8th is my last day in Emergency Response & First Aid and I can't miss it but I will be needing a trip anywhere!

Regards,
Keith
