Death Valley Soiree
 
In light of the fact that there's no longer any large events on the calendar for this faction of the SoCal crowd I thought some of us might want to get together for a come-one-come-all gathering in Death Valley in February or March.
This is not a club event, bbq, raffle or competition. Just an opportunity to meet up, chit chat, take some pics, talk shit with the familiar faces and do some group trail runs over a weekend in Death Valley.

I'll take responsibility for picking an area/campsite (preferably BLM) which permits group camping without a lot of bullshit and post GPS coordinates. Other than that just come as you are. No itinerary, no meal rotation, no guest list. Plan to come Friday night and leave Sunday.

Post your thoughts on dates. I'm going to throw out March 5th to 7th.

As long as it's a weekend, I'm in. Preferably March.

Definitely BLM camping.

JSQ January 14th, 2010 10:45 AM

Awesome.
Sheki got his act together too:

So, is the consensus on march 5-7?

montanablur January 17th, 2010 04:49 PM

I've never been off the pavement in Death Valley, so I will be stoked if my schedule allows me to join.

You didn't drive anywhere offroad when I saw you begging for Imodium at Panamint Springs?

JSQ January 17th, 2010 09:50 PM

Yeah let's do this.

I saw Rick Petersen over the weekend and he said he's in.

Rick asked about shooting if we camped on BLM land. I told him if we did our homework and it was without-a-doubt above the board I would bring target stands and a shot timer and run a couple IDPA type stages.

I drove from toilet to toilet all the way to Salt Lake City... Seriously.

JSQ February 24th, 2010 08:49 PM

Okay, we're still on for our little Death Valley get together.

Here's who's in so far:

Jack Quinlan
Greg Hirst
David Shechter
Read Kerlin
Rick Petersen
Sinuhe Schrecengost
Steve Cooper


Seriously, it's an open invite. Anyone can come and meet up. You don't have to be pals with me or any of the people listed above. Just post that you're coming and show-up for chit chat, trail cuisine and a few scenic trails.
If we get a mostly shooter crowd and we're on BLM, Rick and I will run a little IDPA match. I'll bring target stands, score sheets and a shot timer. If we have a match, we'll be running it cold.

I'll post coordinates to a rendezvous this week.

sheki February 25th, 2010 12:21 PM

My parents will be in town from NY... I'm out :(

montanablur February 25th, 2010 09:03 PM

I'm shooting a music video for her on Monday, so I'm out.

I'd give you permission to play hooky from the trip.

Matt Kendrick February 28th, 2010 08:33 PM

I'm in for a drive by. I will be out there with my 8yr old, might be in and out of camp, but it's his first time so we'll be all over the place doing the highlight tour.

scrover February 28th, 2010 09:42 PM

I'm in as of now - just replaced the fuel pump, steering shaft and shocks - feels much better on the supermarket speed bumps - are we still on?

JSQ March 1st, 2010 12:17 PM

I'm hearing from too many people that this weekend isn't good.

Let's try for another date when more people can go.
What do you like?

greghirst March 1st, 2010 07:48 PM

How about March 20-21 or 27-28?

not that i can totally commit (to anything that is), but these would be a little better for me.
