Glad to hear you are new and coming next month, bummer about this month but no worries. I will post a summary of the meeting today and some of the plans we decide on for trips. We won’t have the whole year booked out yet, but hopefully the next couple of months. See you thenNew to the community/forums. Bummed that I'm going to miss this meetup, but definitely count me in for the second Sunday of January!
Glad to meet everyone today. Thanks for setting this up @PapaDave.Hello everyone! Wow great meet up today, I am truly grateful that each of you made time to make it out and start this off right. For those who couldn’t make it January 12th is our next meeting, come!
By a show of hands it looked like the majority of people preferred weekend trips to start, and again by a show of hands most people could either take a Friday off or manage a noon Friday departure timeframe. We discussed a couple options for a first winter trip along the coast and I think a southern trip down near Big Sur would be a lot of fun. So plan on January 31-Feb 2nd down to the Prewitt Ridge and Indian Hills Area, it’s south of Monterey and north of Cambria. More details to come, but the drive is beautiful both on the pavement and the coastal ridge trail boasts some amazing ocean views from high up depending upon weather. Being a winter trip we will have an adventure for sure, so come prepared :)
@Budman aka Larry was kind enough to take some notes from our meeting.
