Hof Party, 2016

Post by ygmir » Wed Mar 09, 2016 10:42 am

Hi gang!
so, thinking it's ok to get a head start on planning and all, my thought is to schedule said party/campout/chaos, for June 24-28, with 25-26 being the weekend.
RSVP's would be great, but not necessary.
as always,we'll have a couple of large fire pits/bbq/grills, there is spring water, outhouses, and camping spots. Limited spots for a few campers/small trailers.
4x4 is nice for the last 500 feet up to the area, but if you have mad off road skills, 2 wd can make it (but, I'd like to not tear up the gravel/road). so we can either tow you up, or there is plenty of parking at the bottom of the hill and we can shuttle people and stuff up and down.
ALL humans are welcome, it'd be great if dogs could stay home, but this can be worked out, as long as said pet is super socialized and friendly.
I'd just like to avoid previous awkward situations of the past with not so friendly dogs, acting out towards other dogs and humans.

depending on the year, the road in can be rough. not usually 4x4 (except that last 500'), but high ground clearance (or rental,* MGB327*) cars are advised.

coordinates:
driveway:
39°27'7.04"N
120°39'19.03"W

hof:
39°27'8.03"N
120°39'11.54"W

gps will usually get you there, google maps usually, too.
no to super limited cell reception, in that I've seen rare occasions a text will come through. I'm hoping to find a way to boost cell signal there, but so far, too expensive....

It's a beautiful place with beautiful people. This year I'm arriving on Friday so I can spend 2 nights. If you don't have GPS contact me for some lame directions. I got really lost last year....but not as bad as some.

YAY!! Count me in!
So glad I was able to make it last year, and meet Bin Noddin... and so glad he was able to make one last whirlwind trip all over the place.

I'll be hoping for the same tent spot as the other 4 (?) years there. (3?) Last year, we had a veritable neighbourhood in our corner!!

These Hof parties just keep getting Funner!!
Thanks, Yggy!!! :mrgreen:
