If more people can make a different time work than go for it, and ill do what I can do be there. As far as gear goes, I'll be needing to pick a lot of things up too, so curious as to what ya'll go with as far as water filters, burners, tents etc. cheers!
I recently picked up a JetBoil. I'll let you know as the list expands! :)

Sorry to hear things are so busy for you. Hopefully something will pan out. We'd love to see you there!

I can't remember the MSR filter name, but it is a 4 litre bag with an inline filter. It plugs directly into MSR's Dromedary bags, and is super easy to use. And you can get a shower nozzle for it also. I recommend having one gallon of water per person per night. Dinner, breakfast, face washing and tooth brushing. You can get by with less, but it is sure a nice luxury. Oh yeah....DO wear a hydration pack. Camelback or other. I did not on my first big trip, and regretted it.

But backpacking, I bring a trowel for that very purpose.

I will be bringing a water filter, but I hadn't planned on bringing my Katadyn Base Camp bladder.

Might be a good idea to put a pack list so we don't duplicate a lot of unnecessary gear. Two water filters would be good, but 6 isn't necessary...
My wife isn't afraid to use the woods either. ;) Good tip on the gear coordination...living as a community for a week could save us all alot of wasted space. I'd rather bring tools, tubes, camera gear than unnecessary repeats!

Do we want to do self sustaining meals or do a type of community meal? My backpacking group we do community meals where you'd pair up and pick a night to cook something. You end up toting a lot more stuff but you eat a lot better... I'm good either way really.

Camelback type system is nice, but also bring a couple water bottles. You don't want a single point of failure. I learned that the hard way climbing Mt. Hood. Brand new bladder, nice little hole in it and a truck bed with all my water in it....

Yep...I had to use electrical tape on one of my Camelbacks on the Barlow trip last year!
I'm game for whatever on the dinner ideas. Does anyone have a group sized cooking setup though?

Both GREAT advice

Camelback AND Dromedary 6 litre bladder for me, every trip.

Yep, got all that covered if we decide to go that route. I've been doing this stuff for years so I've got all the fancy light weight equipment, just first time doing it on a motorcycle. I think it'll be easier actually since it's not on my back and I don't have to worry about a backpack and a few other pieces of gear.

Ok, so this is a start.

You can edit it and add your own tab if you'd like. I added just about everything I may bring but it'll probably change. Figured it may help those who may not do much camping.

Great list Rick!
I have some extra stuff too, but most of it regular camping gear...not the lightweight stuff.

I can hook you up with tons of info. I backpacked 300 miles last year. I have extra gear and good info.

We will talk tomorrow at Corvallis AVD night :)

I want to do this trip if I am able to obtain the time off work
