Good question. I have not asked! I will do that when I call later this week to see if the road can be driven on.Mar 12, 2019 at 3:37 pm #3583131
Also wanted to mention that five parking spaces are included with the camp site reservation I made. One is for me, one is for Erik G. and his 4×4 so we can hopefully make one run to the site with water and wood. The other three are up for grabs on a first come, first serve basis. After the five permits are claimed, everyone else will need to pay $8/day for parking.Mar 12, 2019 at 4:34 pm #3583142

I’ll take one of those spaces, David @gearmaker . I plan to arrive at the park on Friday morning.
Does anybody else want to go in early, and ride with me from San Jose or nearby on Friday morning?Mar 12, 2019 at 4:41 pm #3583146

Weather reports look good for Coe for entire weekend. Hope that holds up! Encouraging for those that want to stay overnight or for those coming just for the day.Mar 12, 2019 at 4:47 pm #3583151

David Gardner I’ll be happy to take one of those spaces. I’ll be arriving Friday noonish or earlier if things go right.Mar 14, 2019 at 6:35 pm #3583502
Called and left a voicemail at the park station asking about road conditions into the campsite. Haven’t heard back yet, but will post as soon as I do.
Regarding the parking permits, three are taken (1 for me, 2 for GGGers that offered to drive in with 4×4 vehicles). I’ll see if I can put names on the remaining two. If they won’t let me, then it’s first come, first served.
I was also thinking it would be great if everyone can bring a roll of toilet paper, so we can keep the facility supplied.
Really looking forward to this everyone! See you soon.Mar 15, 2019 at 1:36 pm #3583661
What is the tentative count, including day hikers?
I am hoping to take my final tonight AND to convince Chris not to work for half a day tomorrow..Mar 15, 2019 at 6:13 pm #3583703
@kat: I think the count is 15-20 on Saturday.
Just spoke to the rangers. They’re about to test the roads and will call me, but I’ll be on the road by then. They said they were “cautiously optimistic” but just in case everyone should be prepared to bring in their own water and firewood.Mar 18, 2019 at 12:55 am #3584100

Thank you, David @gearmaker , for setting up the event and making it happen.
I was the last one to leave the site. After all of you left, I still managed to find over 20 pieces of readily visible trash, including a well-weathered Corona bottle in plain site from Michael’s tent spot.
Great weather along with interesting and personable folks made for a pleasant weekend.Mar 18, 2019 at 3:07 am #3584134
We popped in for a very short visit. Nice to say hi to a few friends and that is about all we got do; Chris was his quiet self but enjoyed the hike and meeting some folks he had been hearing about for a long time, plus seeing Casey again.
Coe was very crowded as the weather was great. The drive was nice as well.
Nice hammock set up Rick!Mar 18, 2019 at 11:07 pm #3584345
