Anybody interested in a SoCal hang in the next few weeks? Just ordered a KAQ New River UQ and will likely be itching to try it out once it comes in. (Despite it not really being that cold in these parts.)
I'm down in SD, but don't really know of a good overnight spot here, so pretty open to suggestions of where to go.
i'm in norther orange county. whats inbetween? palomar region? never really been there...
I've never really been out there either. There's a bunch of land inland a bit though, maybe someone else can suggest a trail.
As long as we can get a few people together, I'm good to go just about anywhere south of the grapevine.
If I recall from back in my Boy Scout days Palomar was pretty nice, but it has been about 9 years since I've been there.
Observatory Campground on S. Grade Rd. (S6)
42 sites including 5 double sites. Some by reservation and the rest are first-come first-served.
I'm in Orange County, and would probably be down.
This place looks pretty sweet and location seems to work well for all so far.

Should make for an interesting event before climbing into hammocks with an open view of the night sky.
If that weekend works for others, let me know and we can start getting numbers together. Can shoot for one of the reserved spots if we have enough people.
(Looks like the star party happens both Friday and Saturday night. Don't think I can make it up Friday, but the group is welcome to get started without me if others want to go up early.)
Bumping to see who's interested in the weekend of Sept 7th.
i might be. i might bring my wife/kids too if you guys are ok with that.
I want to go but the 7th is bad for me. I will keep an eye on this thread and the other So Cal thread and hope it works out. You guys have fun.
