Do you think there may be too many people to do a group site in the park?

I know the dry lake bed is yucky, but... the SushiFest there a few years back worked out fine. They rented a porto-potty and the dude drove it right out!

Figure out a way to reserve multiple sites.
It can be done.

(psst, happie, once those group sites are reserved, I don't think they count heads. maybe vehicles.......Never saw a ranger in Sheep Camp 2 years ago and I poached there for 5 days.)

I think the lake bed is the best option. I wish I had thought of it. Having a large group of unknown numbers at a group site may not be the best idea.

There is always the Idyllwild option as well.

Bump!

I spoke with the park service and all the reserved sites large enough to handle something like this are booked well into the latter half of May. Plus there is also the parking issue.

My original suggestion was not the best idea.

I vote the lake bed.

yeah, I think the problem at the group sites is not the # of people, but the # of cars. that's been my experience

Penelope and I thought that if Idyllwild would be a reasonable alternative, we could either host at our place or help with things. I noticed someone mentioned Idyllwild before in this post. Again, we could do potluck at our place or help if held elsewhere in IDY. We don't know many of you, but Clark knows us well and we would love to participate...

Saw Clark at the Park Rock cafe yesterday. He is not happy that his hair doesn't seem to share his can-do attitude and is thin, thin, thinning, but even then he says it with a smile on his face and twinkle in his eye. Says he is feeling a little tired, which of course is normal.

The big news was that his phone went kaput and he bought a new one - and has upgraded to an iphone. Seems the Taco isn't optimized for mobile though - he says he has to scroll like crazy to see threads anyway.

To help out Clark, I am offering a commemorative 50th anniversary Half Dome piton signed by Royal Robbins, Jerry Gallwas and Mike Sherrick back in 2008 after the celebration in Yosemite.

I will post some photos and the details once the page refreshes.

I ran into Clark the other day - in between two days doing guiding work, he had been down to the hospital spending 6 hours getting another blood transfusion.

It seems those chemo sessions kick the hell out of his blood cells. This is the second transfusion since he started this round of chemo.

Nonetheless, he was spry and upbeat, talking with enthusiasm as usual. It is amazing how that cancer can jabbing at him and he just scoffs in the face of it and keeps going.
