Default 3rd Annual Primitive Camping Fly-in at Alpine County - October 22-23, 2016

I spoke with Paul and Louise at the Reno Air Races RV BBQ and we settled on a date for the third annual fly-in campout at Alpine County on October 22nd and 23rd.

Details and trip writeups for the last two years are here:
2014: http://www.vansairforce.com/communit...d.php?t=117769
2015: http://www.vansairforce.com/communit...d.php?t=130045

As before, the plan is to meet there about 10am on Saturday and stay until we get bored on Sunday. Those who've gone the past two years have had a great time. I hope to see many of you there this year!

Great post Jason - short, simple, and to the point!

We've been out of pocket since the end of the races, so glad you took the initiative to get a thread started. This is my favorite kind of fly-in....little to no effort on anyone's part except to show up. Hope to see others there who want to primitive camp under the stars.

Paul

Weather permitting, I'll be there. I'll have a backpacking stove, so if anyone needs one, they are welcome to use mine. (of course if you counted on that, and then I get weathered out in so. Oregon, you would be SOL)

My RV's not quite ready for this yet ... (ie, no engine!) But I can't wait. Maybe next year.

I will plan to throw in the tent and some goodies and show up this year. I have had my tent setup in the hangar for awhile planning to get out in it somewhere. See you folks there.

You know, great events start out small....Petit Jean started out with half a dozen folks who showed up for a weekend to a location that (at the time) didn't;'t offer much more than a place to pitch a tent and some hiking......

The best thing for me about t his year is that I'll be in Florida for four days, then I get home and immediately get to fly up into the mountains and pitch a tent among the pine trees, cool temps, and clean air!

Hope a bunch of folks decide to show up.

Paul
