    I will be on the mountain, so I will try and come by, but I will not be staying. I am camping on the other side with another group

    I am hoping I can make it for Saturday night... more to come...

    I have construction debris (cutoffs) for firewood. Anybody else coming for just one night, I can drive... have truck...

    I also have an extra hammock if somebody needs one.

    So... about 85% sure I can make it Saturday (planning on leaving at Oh-Dark-30)... Given it's a 6 hour round trip drive for an overnight, I'll only go because it's HF!

    Anybody need anything? Borrow a Hammock? spare UQ? Mule tape? Poncho Liner?

    I have firewood too.

    Do we have a final count? I am definitely in. The boss said I'm free Sat/Sun!

    Again, I have a truck, and am willing to pickup a body or two on Saturday, with a Sunday return. Given my schedule, I'll probably need to leave camp no later than noon on Sunday.

    Latest Weather report shows 65 degree highs, and 36 lows...

    Sad to say I will be missing this one due to family stuff. I was looking forward to finally meeting local hangers but I guess I will have to wait for the next one.

    In any case, if any of you are close to the San Gabriel Mountain or Angeles National Forest ranges, hit me up. I've been backpacking quite a lot this year and could use some company

    Still no exact count yet. I'm guessing about 7+.
