It appears that there are more and more easterners here vs. a couple years ago. We should organize a BCP East get together. Somewhere in WV (Dolly Sods?) would be very central for most of the east coast.

Anyone interested in a meetup?

That would be an 8+ hour drive for me. I guess we'd need to find out where the easterners live and go from there.

Okay, so here is my real list of 2020 to-do's. I really am trying to dial trips back a little this year, particularly the river trips. Can't really say what rivers I'll do until the permit gods reveal what's in store.

  1. Spend more time with Saguaros
  2. Spend some time in New Mexico
  3. Use my packraft for what it was intended
  4. Go on a couple rafting trips
  5. Camp every month
  6. 50+ nights

Kinda, yeah. Some good things happened with my career recently and I kind of want to focus more on that for a bit. Still gotta have a nice balance though.
Well congratulations! That's great news. I'm sure it's well deserved.

I have no idea....Camp more than last year, I suppose. The choices are overwhelming. Get in the car in April and see where I end up. Preferably nothing I've done before, unless it leads to something else.
Only thing planned at this point is Deer/Thunder from Bill Hall if we can drive through to the TH in April when our permit dates are. (Kanab backup plan I guess)

Haven't developed a complete list but

Feb: Get another of the 48 4K's in NH (snowshoe/crampons if we ever get any winter...)
Apr: Celebrate a friend's 48th and get another 4K
May: 2 weeks to explore Dolly Sods and the Shenandoah area
Aug/Oct: 5 weeks in Wyoming
a) Finally catch my first golden trout?
b) Show my GF Wiggin's Fork/Double Cabin + explore more of GTNF/Yellowstone
c) Lead my hiking group to Titcomb and answer the question a leader asked 3 years ago: "What's so great about the Wind Rivers?"
d) Do another 4-5 day adventure with my nephew, possibly Bear Basin or Flying Monkey (not enough time for Dry Creek/Horse Ridge)

Along with the constant search of gear tuning and learning new skills. (where's that magical 4 oz pair of stream crossing/camp shoes?)

I just did Isolation last weekend and it was snowshoes from the Engine Hill bushwack to the summit. I imagine it's all snowshoes below tree line after this storm. Drop me a line if you are looking for a partner.
