CANCELLED. Hof Party, 2018, July 13-15

Post by ygmir » Wed Apr 04, 2018 9:29 am

Hi Gang!
so, after last years disaster, we gotta make it happen this year! I missed it so, and all of you reprobates!!
It'll probably be a different route in, it's said the "old road" in may not get fixed again this year. I'll keep everyone updated. As I recall, the way I'm thinking is the way Google maps brought Trilo and Pani in? Through the town of Washington? anyway, it's a decent road, or should be, we'll see after winter ends up there.
As always, ALL are welcome! I'd ask two things:

no politics, no dogs.

I'll have a canoe and or 2 person kayak up there, and maybe a life jacket to two, if I can find them...
Most people can catch fish....some never seem to. Crawdads are plentiful, though, and I have traps there, so all you'd need is a fishing license, or at least someone needs one.

Location:
Hof: 39.45232200842027, -120.65338098586489
Driveway: 39.45200100292513, -120.65537898149279
You'd want to start your google map search in the town of Washington, CA. So get to there then to the coordinates.

RSVP's are neat, but not required.
Limited close parking, but there is lots of parking about 500' away and we can shuttle folks up. it's 4x4 the last 300' (steep), so if you don't have 4x4, I'd ask you park at the bottom and we'll shuttle stuff up anyway.

Plenty of spring water and firewood on site. Fires will depend on the fire season and restrictions, as far as individual ones, but we should hopefully be ok for the group fire pit.

two stall outhouse! no waiting!

Marty might bring his poofer and flame effects if we ask him nice!

This may work. Heading out to New Orleans on the 16th of July, so I can probably see my way clear to come up and ruin everyone's weekend. And I'll be bringing my dog Barbie (she's a Picardy Spaniel you know) and of course a whole pile of Make America Great Again hats.

Willing. I sure missed this last year. Thanks for holding on. It just means a more interesting trip. Go slow, and keep your car belly high.

I missed the driveway my first year, and went far past it. I had a leo behind me and stopped to see if he needed to get by, and to ask for help with my bearings. He said I was on my way to Washington, and I thought he meant the state. I flashed on this network of dirt roads that few know about.

oh, also, there's virtually no cell reception there. I've seen a few people get a random text, but really, phones don't work right at the Hof (unless I get my booster stuff to work), otherwise you have to go about a mile up the hill...

Also... Consider taking your hubcaps off before you go. You'll still have four of them, and they'll look as good as the day you left for the hof. 8)

Lucky, When I saw your post I thought you were suggesting the theme.

I'd think so. I've had a couple of 10 wheel dumps up there. Can't speak for the road yet this year, but assuming it's about like last year, should be fine. I'll check low hanging limbs and road conditions as soon as the snow melts and report in.

road update:
I've been up there a few times now, the "new" route in is more "dirt road" but pretty decent, except the last mile or so. That last mile is as bad as the other route was. So, yeah, big rocks, if you have a low car you'll need to "pick your line". But, the bad section is shorter, so there's that...
Beautiful view of the canyon and lake as you come in that way. you start dropping down from about 6500' towards the lake, so can really see the whole area.

Might be a nice idea to post up if you think you are coming, just so folks sort of know who and how many?

This weekend is the start of an annual event at work with mandatory o.t., and vacation blacked out. I am not certain of my schedule yet. Dang. Planning for Sat. If it falls my way.

I’m very very bummed that I won’t be able to make it. I will be in DC the following week and time wise it would just be pushing it.

I’ll miss swimming in the lake, the fire pit, the friends, the laughter and all the merriment!

Have fun everyone :coffee:

looks like most are busy and whatnot, so sadly, I'm going to call it a bust, and cancel. Maybe we can organize for another time.
Please pass the word to any who are not here often, or may not read this?
thanks all.
