That's so cute. You've affixed a last name to your name. All the girls did that in elementary school. "I'll be Mrs. Johnny Depp." or whatever. Hee.

I'll try to make it. I'll have a better idea as to whether or not I can make it as time goes by...

Ah, well then, my bad. Especially since I really meant "Mrs. Heath Ledger."

Count me in Sally, I'll be there in April. I'd also like to hit up Taquits/Suicide again while in the neighbourhood.

I am definitely going - but have a question. On the "Rc.com in 2005" thread that Michael posted, he said they would announce to gathering in February - are you part of that, or just, like you said, sick of not having the facts yet and wanting to get things started?

The 13th to the 16th? I could go if it was on a w/e, but Wed thru Sat?

Anyway, I always go to J-Tree the w/e before that (this year it would be the 9th & 10th) but could push it back 1 week and at least be there on the Saturday. It would be nice to finally hang out with some of the rc.com crew.

Oh yeah. Count me in for sure. I only live an hour from Josh and am there every weekend it doesn't rain anyway...What we really need to do though is get a couple of group sites or try to get people out there early to reserve a bunch of sites maybe on the back loop of HVC. I volunteer...I can go early in the week and drop the envelopes for a bunch of sites together and you people can buy me a drink! I'll need license plate #s though to reserve the sites...PM me when you know for sure you are going.

So, April 15, 16, 17 or 8, 9, 10? Post your preference people. Let's get organized!

I prefer the earlier weekend, 8, 9 and 10...

Somebody get maculated on this too. I demand a poi ball show!!

Apr 8, 9, & 10 is better for me (it's a birthday tradition) but I could go whenever everyone wants to. Why not both weekends???

just wanted to get things started!

i don't want to organise - Im sorry, i don't know enough about J Tree to do this, but i do really want to go to a gathering so just wanted to get the ball rolling. Looked on Michael's thread after reading coldclimb's thread and dont see anything about a j tree gathering on it, so was getting confused and just wanted some facts!

and yeah about the dates - oops, i flipped through to may instead of april when i thought the 13th to the 16th. my bad.

looks like it has worked though :wink: the ball is slowly rolling.

Ya know....it looks like the Rc in 2005 post was edited on 1/11, and now there is no mention of the Gathering being in Joshua Tree.....aaaarrrghhhh! Here is the paragraph where it USED to have the mention.

In reply to:
Events: The members of Rockclimbing.com have always had unofficial gatherings that in some cases have become annual pilgrimages for folks from around the world to climb, slander, have a few drinks, and gather to have a great time in the settings we are most comfortable. Those should always continue, but Rockclimbing.com will also have official access-related events in 2005. The first will be announced in February.

I have to say; I'm disappointed it was removed, and very glad that you started this thread then. I went there for my first time in December and it was incredible. When I was told that it is really beautiful in spring(especially with a wet winter - which we have had!), I promised myself I would come back in April. As soon as I got home I started trying tor recruit friends to go, but since I don't lead yet, it's not so easy......

When I saw the announcement that rc.com was intending to host a gathering, I thought "my problem is solved, now I'll easily be able to find someone to drive out(from the airport) with and have as sort of a base group to camp with.

So - I am going to post on the Partners thread asking about the gathering and if rc is still considering it, but I am not about to miss the opportunity to be there this spring. Either way - I'm in.

Well, if J_ung is going, it would certainly interest me. I'd love to have an opportunity to actually climb with him, even if it meant draggin myself away from my new home. :D

I don't really have to pin down a date, since SoCal is a relatively routine drive from Tucson and we can make plans on short notice. So yeah, sure, maybe, whenever. If I don't get to climb Bird of Fire this trip somebody's getting hurt! No more grainy frying pan slab, CURT :P

Hmmmm if this turns into a real gathering, i might drop the red rock trip in march and head to J-tree, I went to the 1st rc.com gathering there in Jan 02 and i cant get enough of that place (only been back once though), there might be a bunch of Minnesota climbers there, we have a thread on our local site linked to this thread. Keep us posted :)

Am I the only person here who finds this practice selfish and inconsiderate ?

Why not just reserve a group site ?
