Hello!

I was wondering if there was any interest in coordinating a meet up in the Bay Area soon.

I am free this weekend, 9/14-15 and a couple week later 10/5-6 if anyone wants to get together!

I haven't attended one of these yet but would be interested in hearing some suggestions on where and when works for most of us.

Look forward to seeing some replies!

Hey Everyone!

So lets plan on 10/5/19 (or maybe 10/6/19). Looks like this gives people a lot more time to plan for it.

Next on the agenda..

Where do you guys want to do it? Like I said, I've never orchestrated one of these nor ever attended one.

Morning? Afternoon? Coffee? Beer?

Any suggestions would be helpful. I saw that @McGrizzly had hosted one out at Pescadero State Beach. I think somewhere like that would be cool. Any thought?

I really like Davenport. There is that large dirt lot across Highway 1 right in town. There is the whale city cafe too that sells coffee and breakfast too. Just a thought.

If people are not psyched on going to the coast, we can try to find somewhere in the bay area near or around San Jose as more of a central hub.

I think @McGrizzly also organized one at Hop Dogma Brewery on Capistrano in Half Moon Bay that was great. There is a large parking lot there and good craft brews for an afternoon meetup. We would be up for that on Oct 5th.

Do Overland meet up ever do trail meet up as a location? Other clubs I belong to usually meet up at Hollister or somewhere we can have a BBQ and have some fun on trails.

Hello everyone!

I like the idea of meeting up that is just a meet and greet/rig walk around/check out gear. (At least for the first one.) If it goes well, I'd be happy to try to organize another one that could be at a trailhead, or somewhere like Holister or National Forest. After the rainy season we could also try to do a take over up on top of Nacemiento or Plasket Ridge.

Meet Up Location Idea/Time

Hopdogma: Saturday/12 (beer!)
Please list any other ideas in the thread!

Like I said, this is my first one. Help me with ideas!

I’m out this trip. Dang it. I’ll be on a trip leaving Thursday. We are hitting The Lassen Back Country Scenic Trail. 140 miles of off road fun! Sierra Rally was awesome this week end!!
You starting from Pillsbury Lake? From Clear Lake its 200+ miles.
