I’m not organizing, but I thought I’d start a discussion anyway.Dec 3, 2019 at 7:46 pm #3621358
If we want the event to be at one of the Manzanita Point campsites in Henry W. Coe State Park, it’s not too early to reserve a site.
For the sake of discussion, I’ll propose March 13-15, 2020.Dec 4, 2019 at 5:50 am #3621446Rene RavenelBPL Member

@hereLocale: Right there
Aren’t the ticks out in the long soaking wet grass in March? That’s not a long weekend either. Any reason why you picked those dates Steve? Not giving you a hard time. Just curious. ThanksDec 5, 2019 at 12:01 am #3621561

Because it would be exactly one year after the last NorCal GGG?Dec 31, 2019 at 12:32 pm #3624993
Turning up the volume!
Who else might be interested in joining a mid-March GGG in the Bay Area this year?
Like 2019, attractions will include the traditional wood stove burn off, alcohol burn offs for speed and efficiency, lightest complete cook kit (stove, pot, lid, windscreen, fuel container, source of ignition, and stuff sack/container), lightest saw capable of cutting through a douglas fir 2×2, fastest saw under 8 oz. to cut through dry douglas fir 2×2, lightest knife with at least a 1.5″ blade, the shelter tour and judging, and perhaps some even newer events still under development.
We need about twelve participants to make it financially viable at requested donation of $15/person (total) for the two nights. If I can find at least one committed co-organizer to split the risk, I will reserve the site.Jan 1, 2020 at 1:21 pm #3625114David ThomasBPL Member
@davidinkenaiLocale: North Woods. Far North.
Thanks for kicking off the discussion. That might be a possibility for me, northernmost attendee at GGG X. There’s a competition date TBA in March for a team I coach, I’ll know once that’s announced.Jan 3, 2020 at 8:03 am #3625337David GardnerBPL Member

Steve, thanks for taking the initiative. I was thinking about organizing it again but 2019 kicked my butt. I’d be happy to split the reservation cost. PM me.
The dates work for me. Or mid- to late February. Or whenever works!
Ken, I didn’t see a single tick last year in March. Hopefully that will be true again.Jan 3, 2020 at 12:17 pm #3625371d kBPL Member
I’m not sure, Manfred. Possibly a day trip out, but I don’t know yet.Jan 3, 2020 at 3:50 pm #3625409d kBPL Member

I won’t be able to make it as it is the weekend before finals. Looking forward to hearing about it though!Jan 9, 2020 at 10:49 am #3626257Steve SBPL Member
Hey, I would be interested in coming back down from Idaho again! But that is prime time hiking for Utah? I’ll stay in touch!Jan 19, 2020 at 10:51 pm #3627981Doug CoeBPL Member

I’d definitely go. Thanks for starting this up! March works for me.
