2019 Meetup -

It's  time to start thinking about somewhere to meet up this year.  Who wants to meet and where do y'all wanna go?

Top choices would be:

1) Petersen Mountain!

2) McDermitt area.  I've poked around there a little bit, but from what I can tell, you gotta know where to go, and you gotta know the right people to get permission to go to some of those places even if you do know where to go.

3) Challis area.  Because I love that area, found some cool stuff there, and I've only barely scratched the surface.  Plus its closer to where I live so it wouldn't be such a long trek for me.

I am in Oregon, and would live somewhere I could make it.  I am planning a trip to succor creek in April, weather permitting and if it's not too wet there.

That all depends on what kind of a winter we end up having. Some years (like in 2017) we had a really late spring and it was too muddy to go anywhere off-pavement in the inland Northwest, clear up until almost mid-June.  Other years, like in 2015, it's dry and easy driving on those dirt roads as early as the first week of March.  I have no idea what it will be like at Succor Creek in April, too early to tell, but I have had some great rock hunting adventures out that way.  If the weather is nice when you are out this way, contact me and I could show you "where to go" so to speak.

I also would like Peterson Mountain. And if somehow we could be able to hunt on the top?  Well, that would be the best thing since sliced bread.

I'm in.  I need some advance notice to make arrangements for work, but I can absolutely break away for 3 or 4 days.

I would love to join this year, I missed the green wood one I wanted to attend in 2017 because of a last minute family thing  ::), so I would love to do something this year! I'm in Eastern OR so McDermitt would be sweet but I can go to any place if i have enough warning.

You have my interest!  Officially retired as of 1/1 so I have more flexibility now.

Never been to Peterson Mountain so that sounds good, but Challis always sounds good also.

Any sense of timing on this yet?  I'd like to block out the dates.
