Friday arrivals (Spring Gathering)

Postby tmathews » Fri May 06, 2011 8:11 am

For those of you heading out today -- how early are you expecting to arrive? If I can leave right around 3:30, it will put me at the campsite at 6:00 at the earliest. I'm hoping that it's not occupied by another party by then, so if someone can get out there a few hours earlier, that would be great.

If you can get out there earlier in the day, send me a PM and I'll reply with my cell number so you can shoot me a text message when you get there and let me know if it's already occupied. I guess we should have a contingency plan. Anyone know of another campsite in the area that we can use as a backup?

I am planning on leaving Castle Rock around 7:00pm, which should put me there around 10:00pm. I plan on "camping" in my 4Runner, so I don't really need a camp site, just a place to park.

I’ll probably get there at about 7 or 7:30 p.m. with Marmot72. I know several others in my group (dmccool, speth) will be arriving a bit earlier. The real challenge will be passing the next six hours at work!
“There are two kinds of climbers: those who climb because their heart sings when they’re in the mountains, and all the rest.” - Alex Lowe

"There have been joys too great to describe in words, and there have been griefs upon which I cannot dare to dwell; and with those in mind I say, 'Climb if you will, but remember that courage and strength are nought without prudence, and that a momentary negligence may destroy the happiness of a lifetime. Do nothing in haste, look well to each step, and from the beginning think what may be the end.'" - Edward Whymper

I should be there between 5 and 6 if I get everything done in time to get out of town. I may head up and camp in the gulch to have a headstart in the morning to climb.

We'll be leaving downtown Denver around 4:30 pm. Heading to the grocery store and we'll likely be at the site around 7:30 pm.
