Fordyce Creek - October

Edit:

PICTURES ADDED BELOW!!

OCTOBER 24th-25th (and camping Friday 23rd for those who can)
Fordyce Creek Trail - Eagle Lakes trailhead to Meadow Lake

I think we have a pretty good size group that want to run Fordyce this month. The water flow will be down, so it will be a great time to run the trail. In another couple of weeks Fordyce Lake will be almost empty (for their dam repairs) and the flow will be below 50cfs.

How does the weekend of the 24th and 25th sound to everyone?? I could do the 17th and 18th too, but Brooke wouldn't be able to come.

I'd like to run the trail all the way through and do all the winch hills. My thoughts are to wheel in an hour or so Friday night for those who are able to camp over Friday night and the rest can meet us at camp Saturday morning. And then Saturday wheel the rest of the trail and camp at Meadow Lake or somewhere along the way if we want to take more time. Sunday we can play on some of the winch hills at the top of the trail (or finish running the trail) and then head for home.

Just some ideas ... I'm open to suggestions. Who's in?

1. JeepThing
2. Eugene
3. rubirobv
4. Hundy ... nah, he'll be at the "sluttier" huge blow-out Halloween party weekend at Dumont dunes!

Either weekend works for me, though the 24/25th is my 3 day weekend where I have Moday off. It makes it nice to have a day to unpack. I am also game on leaving Friday if I put in for vacation. I'm easy so we'll see where the consensus takes us.

I'll be at a huge blow-out Halloween party weekend at Dumont dunes! We'll compare pics after the weekend--- mine will be sluttier (is that a word?) Halloween parties seem to do that to otherwise prudish women!

Its our kick-off weekend for dune season.

I do want to hook up with you guys though...

I just talked with Dave, and that weekend works for him too. So let it be written, so let it be done.

OCTOBER 24th-25th ... and camping over Friday night, 23rd, for those who are able.

ARRRR!!

Sonofa! I just ran into a BIG snag at work and it looks like I can't make it on the 24/25th. Anyone want to make it the 17/18th instead? SORRY guys!

Edit: Scratch that, 17/18 probably won't work either.

WARNING: Don't ever question Hundy's priorities!

I did ... only to find out that he's going to a "sluttier" Halloween party at Dumont dunes that weekend ... but offers to compare pictures ... now my month goes through the shredder and I don't know if I'll be able to run Fordyce ... won't have any pics to trade.

Karma

I'll see what I can figure out with work and let you guys know. I'd like to find some way to still run Fordyce.

Effective yesterday, fire restrictions have been lifted in Tahoe National Forest!! Remember, you'll need a fire permit though.

I'll let Rob post up here first (he MAY have a story to share). All I can say is ... he's earned every picture you have Hundy!!

I met up with them Saturday night at Meadow Lake after they ran the trail trail from the Eagle Lakes trailhead. Sunday we went back through the upper winch hills and out committee crossing through a new section of trail they built last year. It was a bit tight for an unlimited in places, but a fun climb.

I forgot to grab my camera this morning, so it will be tonight or tomorrow before I get my pics downloaded. I'm not sure how many my daughter even took???
