WFF backpacking meet. (brainstorm thread)

#32
doesnt seem that outlandish. its just givin people a chance to get some ideas togather so we can have a vote and discussion to decide the place. is there something currently goin on for you that makes one week to soon?

I'm not interested in committing to a trip so long before the high coutnry is all melted out. That said, it appears that you are choosing to be the brains behind the operation here, so do what you wish. If the dates and location work out for me, I will try to attend. I had misunderstood the remarks of others on this thread.

im not sayin everyone needs to RSVP right now, i just want to move things forward and keep this idea alive. planning it all out is a long proccess which is why i want to get the ball rolling early.

Looks like this is turning more into a party location (destination) than it is a backpacking/fishing trip.
why:beer2:? if that is all then ill be able to keep it at least one guy sober. even if it is a big party where you don't get up till 9{:D} because its to early then how cares as long as you have fun. you can still fish dusk!

i asked him this in PM as well and all he did was basically tell me im an asshole. There is no reason to assume that this is going to be a party destination camping trip as opposed to a backpacking trip. My reason for wanting to do this are to meet and fish with some likeminded people, and to put togather a trip that might help some less experienced hikers get there bearings and hopefully fall in love with the wilderness like many of us already have. If you don't like the idea of backpacking in a social group (i know some people hate people and go to the wilderness to find solitude) then you need not attended. if on the other hand you want to meet some people, try to catch a few fish, and drink some whiskey under the stars and share out love of nature then this will be for you. im going to be posting the locations that im considering next weekend and until then if you have some postive suggestions feel free to post up!

im up for it, i told my mom and she said maybe, but i can be at my dads on that weekend;)
and he will let me. i will be going even if it is just me and 1 other, i really don't care if its a party or not. parties are fun, don't come and be a party pooper, and don't rain on the parade. i didn't go on the hoh down but there were plenty of pictures of drinking and having fun. if it wasn't going to be fun i wouldn't go. but really how can fishing not be fun?!

"Destination" meant that had a location picked out, regardless of the fishing and I believe the other kid called himself an asshole. My PM wasn't even close to that. If that's what he wants to believe he is, so be it.

Just a word to the wise. Zen's probably forgotten more about the back country than the rest of you will ever know. It would be advisable to listen.

I'd like to possibly add myself to the list, aug might be difficult for me as I'm planning to meet up with my brother somewhere on the PCT (he started at the mexican border a few weeks ago) and join him for a day or two.

If you can handle a terrible fly fisher, and perhaps out of shape person, I'd love to join. Need to meet some fishing folk.

If it's a few months out I might even have my packraft built, that'd be cool.


Maybe set some ground rules, well not rules, but without something said I might show up with a spin reel as backup and a stringer to keep a couple.

C&R, or minimal keep?
fly only, spin shunned but okay?
stay sober, drink as much as you like but take care of yourself and don't get mean?
