    instead of meeting at the 7-11 off osbourne, we will meet at the 7-11 and oro vista off foothill blvd. in sunland. the main reason is i want everyone to make it to the camp with some daylight left.

    we meet at 5 PM and do lynx and pacifico on the way camp then to newcomb's. the camp is at the near the top end of pacifico before reaching angeles crest. if you prefer to skip lynx, proceed to mill creek parking lot and wait for us at 7 PM. this will give you plenty of time to get there from work or home.

    we set up our tent first before having dinner at newcomb's.

    this will also give our support vehicle a quicker route to the camp.

    we can meet at the shell station, closer for many of the FFs.

    personally, i stay away anywhere between the bottom of angeles crest and upper big t cuz that's where most accidents happen. besides, big t is more scenic and has less blind curves....:gerg

    mill creek is the best place to hook up with everyone else.

    That is clearly an 1150...far superior to a 1200...and now for something completely different: May I be invited/added to the list?

    sito, about time you come out and smell the dust. let us know if you need to stash your camping gear in the support vehicle and IN for sat night bar-b-q?

    dunerat...are you bringing the diesel truck or jeep? the truck can surely take all our crap. if your gf is jeeping, we can ask sopascat to bring the suburban.
