#1)  NTS Gathering California

Postby Larry Tucei » Mon Jul 11, 2016 1:45 pm

All--  Who would be on board for a WNTS-ENTS gathering in California in the not too distant future? Say early summer of 2017 or whenever.  We could meet up as a group somewhere close to the tall, big trees. We could maybe split up to do different areas or stay together. Just some thoughts. We have discussed this in the past. It would be great to get everybody together for a grand western event. Possibly get some others interested in exploring the giants- College's, Media, Scientists or whoever.  Something like we had in Durango a couple of years ago. Thoughts?  Larry

Larry,

I really like this idea.  The NTS has needed another "East-meets-West" event ever since the last one was held in Durango.

I'm definitely on board with this idea,

Larry-
I'm very supportive of such a gathering, despite the challenging logistics of California.  In terms of my personal participation, I may not be able to.  By May, 2017 I will have been away from home (Alaska) 11 months, and may not have the option of another month away from home.
I am familiar with much of California, and at the least could offer comments, suggestions, etc., during the planning stages.

I know you are Don and I will be picking your Brain in the near future for some ideas. It doesn't have to be May I just through that out there. We can do more than one too.  Thanks - PS Been drinking Abita Turbodog not bad.  Larry
