I'm in too.Feb 21, 2010 at 12:45 am #1576611
I'd love to but already made plans to go up to Bishop for the trout derby, have fun guys. JackFeb 21, 2010 at 12:54 am #1576612
I live in the wrong part of the country… :(Feb 24, 2010 at 5:33 pm #1578210
BUMPED – Anybody else up for it?Feb 24, 2010 at 5:45 pm #1578222
I am definately in. Dave, even if it is 5-6 folks it will still be a fun trip.Feb 24, 2010 at 6:24 pm #1578238
I might be in again. Hey Dave where is Crabtree trail head?Feb 24, 2010 at 6:46 pm #1578246
Hey Jack……It's the same trailhead as last time, but we'll do the whole loop.
Five miles in on Saturday, four out on Sunday.Feb 24, 2010 at 7:02 pm #1578255
I might be able to get Fri. off can some of us hike in on Fri.? I should know for sure by Mon. You guys are killing me with this long distance driving.Feb 25, 2010 at 7:53 am #1578433
I might be up for 2 nights starting on Friday. I do think we could go somewhere else though, even if not far. There are so many places we haven't seen, and to just retrack our steps for half the trip…. Anyone willing to look up something in that area that might work for us, plus we get some new scenery?Feb 25, 2010 at 8:16 am #1578440
I would like to stick with this spot….I really want to get farther in and complete the whole loop.
We'll only be repeating the first 2.5 miles to Aspen Meadow from the last trip, the remaining 7 miles will be an all new loop, so we won't be backtracking on Sunday.
I hear what you're saying, I definitely want to check out other locations, just want to finish this spot first.

David, sounds good.Feb 25, 2010 at 8:26 am #1578446
One idea for those who want to get there on Friday and spend two nights out.
Friday arrivals could do the drive from home to the trailhead on Friday and hike in to the same campsite we used last time.
Friday arrivals could either wait for us there and get a late start when Saturday arrivals reach camp, or continue on to Saturday night's destination and we'll catch up there.
That would leave plenty of time to get the driving out of the way on Friday.Feb 27, 2010 at 5:12 pm #1579478
I am coming in on Sat. what time is everyone going to be at the trailhead??Feb 27, 2010 at 10:33 pm #1579554
Hey Ken –
I'm thinking of leaving my house in Pleasanton at 7:00 – 7:30.
That ought to put me (us) at the trailhead at about 9:30.
Want to work out a carpool?Feb 28, 2010 at 9:29 am #1579628
Might not be albe to carpool Dave. I might be in Fresno visiting family on Friday. I will know more in the next day or two. I will let you know. Thanks for the offer.
What is the route that we are following? Is it on the closed roads heading to Crabtree or are we on trails. The reason I am asking is that I am trying to decided between cross country ski's or my snowshoes. I am a beginner cross country skier and I am not that mobileMar 1, 2010 at 7:51 pm #1580328
Looks like I'm in for sure and I got Fri. off any takers for Fri? JackMar 2, 2010 at 11:46 am #1580627
Jack, I was hoping to make it on Friday, but I cannot take that day off. I hope you find some other takers; two nights are better than one…Mar 2, 2010 at 11:51 am #1580632
I can only do Sat. Debating between ski's and showshoes. Are we going to be on forest service roads? I am a beginner and I have never skied with a backpack on. I need alot of space!Mar 2, 2010 at 12:29 pm #1580650
Luck has it that I will likely be in CA that weekend and would love to meet some other BPL'ers. I would be up for both Fri and Sat nights. Need to get my trip finalized. The trailhead is near Donner Pass?Mar 2, 2010 at 1:36 pm #1580699
We're actually going into Emmigrant Wilderness or right below it on HWY 108. Pincrest Lake is near there. You are more than welome to join if you'd like
