I might be up for that trip but ill have to wait and see
Alright, it looks like I will be able to free up some time in June. Specifically June 26th-30th. Hopefully most of the snow pack is melted by then because I'd like to go up into the Sierra's. Possibly Plumas National Forest area to run Cleghorn Trail in La Porte then tackle Poker Flat from La Porte to Downieville. While out there I'd like to cruise up to Sierra Buttes and check out the fire lookout. Lastly, I'll probably end up at Deer Lake/Gold Valley. If time allows, I might take a stab at Snake Lake. At least, these are my tentative plans. I am open to suggestions and If anyone would like to co-plan the trip with me, that'd be much appreciated.

My event organizing days are well behind me but a very cool event would be a HAM training at the top of Mount Diablo. (There is a large overflow lot just before the top). I am a beginner at best so it would be cool to get pointers and then try stuff out. The simplex range from there is great and would allow people from 360 degrees around the mountain that could not make it up to participate on the other end and from quite a distance. Just a thought.

Also, a bit of coordination between the East Bay and HMB meets would be good. They both fell on this past weekend and I choose the other to make a bit of a day out of it.

My hats off to everyone that takes the reins. Event organizing can be frustrate at times as well as thankless. Thanks for the efforts.
It's been tough, thats for sure. But, like I said, I am going to keep organizing it, just on a less demanding of a schedule. I will look into what the other groups are up to, see if any of them would like to collaborate on a meet-up or two. I'm open to the idea of holding classes/demonstrations on almost anything, however I've literally only been overlanding for a year now, so I don't know if my knowledge is up to par enough to share.

I am in the same boat and absolutely would love to get some colab on meet ups! we can split the difference or just switch one side of the bay to the other! I have some good ideas for up and coming meet ups, some food related, some gear and education related. Lets catch up after the holiday weekend and chat about getting one going for end of the month or maybe next month. East to West Bay Meet would be awesome. If you decide to head to S.F.O. in Pacifica this weekend we will be around checking it out.

I still have not made one the meetups due to work and life in general. Thanks for keeping this going. I will make it to one sooner or later. Let me know how I could help.

hey @RedBeard wanted to reach out and see if you want to colab on a meet up! figure we could meet somewhere in the middle and perhaps a brewery somewhere...alameda for almanac. good photo ops there for people or something in san mateo like devils canyon or something. I can get in contact with the owners and see what they can do for discounts or maybe throw a line to sfo or some vendors and get a big one going. any interest?

Sounds like a plan to me. I was just about to create the rally point for June. I'm open to any ideas.

Any ideas of when and where the next meetup is?
I'm going to target July. Most likely the 6th. I'll keep everyone posted. If anyone has suggestions or would like to give a crash course on some trail recovery/repair/radio/etc. Please contact me and we can set something up.

I will headed up to Oregon for a long weekend. That being fourth of July weekend I would think most will be out of town. Might have to wait till August if you want to keep it the second weekend of every month.
Just my two cents.
