Have you guys considered doing mini skills clinics and demos? I'm sure there will be varying degrees of experience and background in the group. You could solicit volunteers to lead short "courses" throughout the weekend on skill sets like: firestarting methods and tips, backcountry cooking and baking, bear bagging, hammock hanging tips, layering systems, backpacking and photography basics, coffee making.
Obviously something like this would be a bit of an undertaking and require some planning, but it could be an additional draw for attendees.Nov 5, 2011 at 7:09 am #1798760
Eugene. Good idea there.
Which would you like to teach?Nov 5, 2011 at 8:17 am #1798775
"Oh wait, you're serious."
I didn't realize you were joking. I should have looked up 'fresnel lens.' ……Nov 5, 2011 at 8:24 am #1798778
Have a skill/ability you would like to teach others? Wanting to make the GGG even better, step forward and share!Nov 5, 2011 at 8:38 am #1798781
yes please do share here. We need to continue to make this better each year. The only way that this is going to happen is if we come up with some great ideas.
Towards the end of the month we should probably do a head count to get an idea on the number of attendees. Luckily this year, there are NO fees. If anyone is on the fence about attending, please refer to the prior meets that we have had at Point Reyes and Henry Coe last year.Nov 5, 2011 at 9:20 am #1798795

I vote for the movie, "Into the Wild"
Doug….if you are serious about bringing the gear, I would happy to volunteer to help carry some of the AV Gear.
Maybe we can get a few people to help sherpa stuff in.
That might mean larger speakers, larger power supply, etc for a better movie experience.Nov 5, 2011 at 9:28 am #1798797

Great suggestion….I would nominate Jacob for a lecture on photography.
If someone is skilled at bear bagging, specifically, the PCT method of bear bagging, that would be great to see.
I would consider giving a small talk on fire starting using a fire steel and three methods of using a cotton ball as a form of tinder to get a fire going.
Also, I would nominate Cameron to talk about gourmet cooking on the trail….talking about what he does at home to prepare his meal and then how he prepares it in the field.
It would be cool to maybe have a contest to see the most creative tarp pitch, setup.

"Doug….if you are serious about bringing the gear, I would happy to volunteer to help carry some of the AV Gear."
Thanks for the offer! But the kit, including speakers, weighs only a pound! It's pretty amazing, really. The only thing that 'might' make the experience better is better speakers, I'll check into those.
