I just returned from a week in Hawaii. As far as I know the dates of my Shasta/Hood trip are still not set in stone by the trip leader. There is also a chance I'll be kicked off the trip because I missed a training class on crevasse rescue. I hate to appear indecisive, but I still can't commit to anything at this point, but will do my best to make myself available.

just tell them you saw that movie and all the guy has to do is chop his hand off

Very funny! However, that wasn't a crevasse. I have not seen the movie yet, but from what I've heard, that incident happened in what is referred to as a "slot canyon."

A get-together in Las Vegas in June, particularly Wednesday afternoon 6/15 at Main Street Station and possibly other days/times. Try a search on thread titles containing "WoVCon". There are several threads discussing possible activities. I think we are mostly counting on Croupier to get this organized.

There is a Shasta/Hood meeting Wednesday evening. After that I should know if and when I'm going on that trip.

It is more or less organised. I think the best think will be to go with the flow on the day, depending on the numbers that turn up.

The info on time and date as well as some general discussion can be found here

Hey Croupier,

I think there are some changes needed to the list at the front of this chain: Avargov, MDH, and Doc look to definitely be "in." Presumably JL2 will not attend, since he's banned from the site. Maybe altut or helicious can verify that for us:-)

Also, the timing of my trip does not work out for my girlfriend, so I'm coming solo.

Thanks for the easy update list.

I am 99% sure I will be there, but my car won't be, so I will have to find a ride there. Perhaps I will try good 'ole public transportation since the rest of my family won't appear until late Weds early Thurs. I guess I could always bobtail over as well, then I can feel all manly with a 15-litre, 535 horse engine...lol.
