Wow! It looks like this thing might really happen! I got a PM from someone (sorry I can't remember who and the message disappeared from my inbox) about the campground and possible plans.
I've been there before and didn't have any trouble finding a place to hang but I might have just been lucky.
Sites are first-come, first-serve so it might be a good idea for whomever gets there first to lay dibs on however many we think we'll need depending on the amount of people going. We'll have a better chance of getting good hang spots if we have multiple single sites than one big group site.
There is plenty of hiking in the area. We can go down the hill to a pretty rambunctious hike to a peak overlooking Orange County, or there is a hike straight out of the campground as well.
I was thinking we could have a potluck on Saturday night where everbody brings their own main course (meaning if you want steak for your main dish, bring steak for yourself. If you want hot dogs, bring them for yourself, etc...), but everybody also brings a side-dish. that way everybody gets what they want to choe down on and share some of their favorites too. I make a mean Peruvian ceviche that will knock your socks off. We can eat together at whichever site makes the most sense.
Hopefully this works out well and we can start a yearly tradition to get some momentum going for SoCal hangers. I think we've been a bit underrepresented out here and it's probably past time to get things going.
Thanks again for all of the responses. I'm really looking forward to this!

Curious if anyone plans to make this a two day event? Friday and Saturday reason for me is the drive. Right now I'm leaning towards two days. Will know more the end of this week.
If anybody else wants to show up on Friday in addition to Saturday I would say feel free to and I will meet you guys Saturday morning.
Anybody want to do any quick demos?
Like how to make and use Whoopie Slings, for example?
I'm still relatively new so I don't think I'll have much to offer in this regard.
Or, if everybody thinks it would be best to just set up our rigs and ask questions about them, we could just do that too.
