Don't miss the experience of a lifetime on Oct. 22/23, 2011 (that's _next_ October!)
4 or 8 hours trekking through beautiful desert country and rocky formations in Joshua Tree National Park,
finding beautiful checkpoints on a large map.
Sign up soon, preferably by October 15, 2010, to help us plan for this event -
we just need a contact email address and a few questions answered about logistics for planning purposes.
Sign up here:
JT 2011 Survey
By doing this, you will also help greatly with the permitting, so we can be specific about numbers and logistics.
So if you're interested, but not sure you if you can definitely come, please sign up anyway to help us plan.
This also gives you priority for registration for the event (last year there was a limit of 60 participants,)
and you can drop out at anytime. It would be best if we knew within two weeks,
so if you could tell us by Oct. 15, 2010, that would really help our permit application.
Our hope is to secure the permit by early 2011 and then we can confirm the plans and carry on with registration.
Your response and information will increase our odds at getting this permit. We did it before, I think we can do it again,
but there's no guarantees. We'll keep you informed every step of the way.
Here's some preliminary information about the event plan for Oct. 22/23, 2011.
1. New area: Hidden Valley (this year, it was Jumbo Rocks.)
2. Group camping: Sheep's Pass (will make logistics much easier than this year, and I will reserve sites by the end of this month based on signups.)
3. Checkpoint verification: We're expecting to use a GPS-based system using technology being currently prototyped.
4. Expect a nice smorgasbord of post-event food.
5. Map: 11x17, 1:24000 scale, slightly enhanced USGS topo.
