    Thanks @rider914 I've invited him into our convo as well. Although you both are from way further east, if we were to meet without either side doing much detour - it would be either at Guffy itself or at rt15 meets rt215

    I’ll plan on meeting you at Guffy Sat. morning. Are you riding the 690? If you’re taking the 950 it will motivate me to do the same.

    Well... looks like Chu is out and I am probably stuck at work for the full day :bluduh
    So... most likely riding up as early in the morning as I can to grab a good spot at Guffy.
    @aanichols Maybe see you at camp or on the way?
    @slidewayes Maybe see you sat night in Wrightwood?

    I will be on the 950 'cuz she hasn't been out to play in awhile :ricky

    Where are you driving from?

    Ok, I can join you guys at Guffy, or lmk a place in town where we could meet in the morning so we can roll out together. Perhaps a gas station or something - will need to fill up before heading into the mountains anyway.

    I'm gonna try to roll around 6~7am, zip straight to Guffy and drop tent.
    Could wait there for others to show, or head back to Wrightwood around 9am?

    Yeah, I get up way to early......I’ll be on about the same schedule as Matt. I’ll try to get to the Chevron by 700, if not I’ll text you. Otherwise I’ll head through Lytle Creek, Swarthout.....etc.

    I was planning on dinner in Wrightwood.
    But that has sometimes changed to grabbing something in town to take to camp.
