    For those who are not renting cabins, I’m thinking car camp city in the govy rest area up the street from charlie’s. Could be cool with some snow caves too… :doobie:

    That’s a 15min only rest stop, I guess you could say you’re in the Summit Ski Area parking lot… However it does bring up another good question i’ve always had. That large area across from Timberline Rd that I often see folks parked in, is that just a chain up area? Also, I frequently see overnight folks parked in the large pull out a short ways up Timberline Rd that I think is the PCT trailhead.

    Dogan
    viable choices?

    Good call, I like the option of being off the road a little. I mean, you can sleep in your car anywhere around there as long as it’s not a tow zone (just be incog) but it would be cool if we had some area staked out together.

    PCT trailhead?

    The earlier you show up, the better chance you have of getting the demo board you want. Yes I’m sure people will carpool and stay in GC. Transport and accomodations are up to you. Cya there

    Jefe! I’m pretty sure I’ll be heading down for this! It would be great to hook up and do some touring together.

    Think anyone will be climbing/riding Hood that weekend (conditions permitting, of course)? I’ve climbed it before, but it would be great to do a split descent. Just a thought…

    Is overnight camping (in a car) allowed at GC?

    Hope to see you soon, man!

    Nice to hear from you Jim! Glad to hear you’re coming down.

    We had 3 splitfest attendees summit last year, so I’m sure there will be lots of peeps trying for the summit this year. I can definitely introduce you to a few guys who have done it.

    I don’t know about the legality of camping in your car in GC, but I plan to do it, so I think the rule is just be incog and don’t be getting naked in some old ladies front yard.

    Cya next weekend —

    Is anyone else coming down from the Seattle area? I did last year and would like to make the trip again. I’m not really familiar with area but interested in camping or snow caves.

    I’m headed down Friday. I’ve got room for 2 more but I’m not camping. PM me if you’re interested.

    Hey all!

    The Huckleberry Inn has a 14 bed dorm room that costs $197.50. It might not be fancy, but it would be cheap and right in town! It’s available Friday night. Is anyone interested? I’d be happy to reserve it if we could get at least 8 people to commit.

    PM me ASAP if you’re interested!

    Good call on the Huckleberry! We splitters are a lazy bunch and very often need someone to take charge and just make shit happen. I bet if you go ahead and reserve it for both nights, you’ll have no problem filling up the beds and getting paid back.

    I’ll put this out on the facebook invite too. Do you have a email address where you want people to contact you?

    Thanks Jefe! Would be great to meet some other climbers. I’m not 100% sure I’ll be doing a Hood climb/descent, but it’s definitely high on my list. So far, Saturday looks like it could be a great day for it.

    If any climbers are reading this and are interested in doing Hood on Saturday (or maybe Sunday), let me know. Otherwise, let’s just get out and tour.

    The room is not available Saturday 🙁

    I already have one response for Friday, but I’d like to wait to a couple more before I pay up. Great idea about FB! My email is moccamjl@gmail.com.

    Looking for a few volunteers to help me dig snow out of the front of Charlie’s on Friday afternoon. Will buy endless Rainiers for any helpers. If there’s 3 or 4 of us it won’t take more than an hour or so. I’ll be up there by 3pm at the latest on Friday.

    I can probably get in on that, planning on heading up after work Friday (0900 unless I can get the day off) snagging a timberline spring pass (cause i’m lazy and plan on taking the snowcat up Saturday) and riding around on what should be fresh pow (should weather pattern hold true). Should I snag a snow shovel off clearance rack at Target or just use my pack shovel?

    Just to make things extra complicated, I gotta be at a Wedding Saturday afternoon… Hoping to make it back down, attend 4pm wedding and back up for the raffle. Any idea on what size the Arbor is? Sadly the Venture Storm is a tad too narrow for my monster boot requirements. Well its maybe 1cm too narrow but I’m pretty self conscious about toe drag already. Pow god knows I need more gear though (and an Abacus would look quite nice next to my Cascade).

    Also… If shipping estimate is accurate, I should have 3D (phone) camera capabilities another reason I’m hoping the weather holds out. :thatrocks:

    PM me a phone # or I’ll just find the jackasses digging out a tavern.
