When are you gonna get to BIBE Homero??? You should be there in two weeks....!!! I know you'll love it, hot or cold.
Our current plan:arrive Friday - camp in the BasinSaturday - hike Casa Grande, camp in the basin.Sunday - hike to the south rim, camp up there.Monday - hike down, probably camp at the Cottonwood campground after visiting Cattail Falls and whatever else along the RMSD.Tuesday - a sad drive home.
Be sure and check the overnight temps at Castalon before committing to camping there. I've heard it can be brutal if the temp doesn't drop. Wish I could join you.
I've camped at Cottonwood this time of year. I had the place to myself -- even the ranger seemed surprised to see me there. A bunch of javelina grunted and shuffled around all night. It was hot and still. I hardly slept any. I don't think the temperature ever got below 80. One of the worst camping nights I've ever had. If it's breezy, it should be bearable. If it's still, prepare to sweat a lot.
I could join you.
Quote from: "RichardM"I could join you.Lets Go! :!: I'll pick you and Randell up in Houston next Wed or Thur the 28th or 29th and blast out there. We'll pick up Muse in SA. We can drive back Tue the 4th or Wed the 5th? Ya'll set the schedule. Avalanche can hold 4 comfortably and 5 is not bad - maybe Casa Grande can drive down to SA and we will pick him up there. We'll split the gas costs. Everyone travel LIGHT. I'll bring the R2D2 and we can squeeze five in there w/o any problem - a little tight, but not too bad.
What kind of beer do you all like?
Sounds good to me! That settles it, I'll see Shane, David, Richard, Randell, and Muse in the Basin June 30th. What kind of beer do you all like?
