With all the Fests already formed for this season – maybe it’ll have to wait until next year anyway – BUT – if there’s interest, there’s time. The area in mind is skin-in only. It would be a camp scenario, no heated amenities available – its wilderness. I’m thinking an April time frame could be ideal. The area in mind is easily accessible from Boz or Billings if a flight-in was your way to get here. Most likely – there wouldn’t be anyone there but us Scrubs for the entire stay. Its roughly ~4 miles & 1300′ climb to the better camp areas at the base of the options. I think there’s options in the area – these are a few: February 15, 2011 at 6:59 pm #635451 sdmarkus 407 Posts Pass the torch baby, sounds like a great idea. :thumpsup: February 15, 2011 at 7:05 pm #635452 samb 7 Posts Sounds like an awesome Idea, you could count me in for sure.

Yep Not above Frazer lake – twin lakes. Is Easter weekend possible for folks? Its the only long/holiday weekend in April – like 22nd-25th? Nice to see the stoked responses. Good tent + good -0 type bag necessary for this – I’ve seen it tap 0’s in May in there at night. February 16, 2011 at 2:21 am #635458 lifelinksplit 282 Posts thats what i figured. great area with tons of options. oh and i think an ice ax is mandatory…cause there is still a bounty out on the porcupine that chewed through my buddies backpack and ate a mesh tent door and gnawed on a sleeping bag. i still laugh thinking about waking up in my tent at 3am to my buddy outside telling me he thinks he just kicked a porcupine! February 16, 2011 at 4:23 am #635459 chadsnowberg 17 Posts Sounds fantastic, set the date. Great idea! February 16, 2011 at 3:14 pm #635460 samh 726 Posts You know I’m in, Dave. April would be a pretty killer time and the Crazies would be a great location. It’d be nice to have Jeramie come up and visit us for a change. Are you thinking 2011 or 2012 to start? -- samh.net February 16, 2011 at 4:31 pm #635461 nickstayner 700 Posts down February 17, 2011 at 2:17 am #635462 lewmt 570 Posts Why not this year to start? Maybe do a meet-up in Bozo on Thurs April 21st. Head out as early as possible on Fri am. Hit it hard Sat & hit another Sunday & head out. Snow pack (so far) is deep & right-side-up with the usual variables but my thinking is why wait to see what next year brings? So – April 21st-24th 2011 I don’t think this steps on any other event toes does it? February 17, 2011 at 4:44 am #635463 wasatch surf 979 Posts damn yet another fest i want to go to. if you do the Crazies i will probably have to come up for this. i have a strange infatuation with that range. February 17, 2011 at 6:20 am #635464 samh 726 Posts In my opinion, all of SLC should represent. At least all of SLC that’s not afraid to do a little snow campin’ ; ) Methinks I’ll be able to score a canvas wall tent and stove for an event like this. If an event like this was to mature I bet we could provide some pretty damn livable conditions out there through the use of hunting tents and stoves – – you know – – Montana style and all that. -- samh.net February 17, 2011 at 7:33 am #635465 schralptowner 176 Posts Count me in!! I am in need of a trip and Montana Scrub Fest sounds like the perfect opportunity to see some old friends and schralp some turns. February 17, 2011 at 11:38 am #635466 lewmt 570 Posts Methinks I’ll be able to score a canvas wall tent and stove for an event like this. That would be incredible! I’ll definitely help you pack her in. So its on then CRAZY MOUNTAIN SPLIT JAM Uno A tee with a visual of numerous splitters engaging in a massive porcupine hunt w/ice axes(a la LLS) should be in order. i have a strange infatuation with that range. So do I. My favorite place. Supposedly the heaviest concentration of wolverines in the lower 48 – maybe they’re onto something. February 17, 2011 at 4:36 pm #635467 chunk 5 Posts sounds epic. are orangutan dogs allowed? February 17, 2011 at 5:14 pm #635449 samh 726 Posts Hints have been dropped to the owner of said wall tent for possible borrowing. -- samh.net February 17, 2011 at 11:45 pm #635468 lifelinksplit 282 Posts are orangutan dogs allowed? doesn’t the saying go something like….”it ain’t a montana party till the dogs outnumber people” Viewing 20 posts - 1 through 20 (of 25 total) 1 2 → You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
