Always bring recovery gear! We are crawling up Mt. Patterson and over the peak at 11K+ feet. The plan is to either camp near the peak or down at Lobdell, then drive over the peak to Bridgeport on this trip.

I want to come but have a family conflict on Friday. Do you think I'd be able to meet you guys somewhere on Saturday morning or is it a scratch?

Yep. Go to Lobdell Lake via 395 and then go to the coordinates for the main campsite.

Program the repeaters mentioned and we will listen for you. I'll have my inreach too so text me there if you can't get us on radio.

With the Rubicon run next weekend likely to not happen, I may try to join this. Looks like possible snow wheeling conditions though, 2-4" forecast on Friday at Lobdell Lake.

I’m heading out tomorrow at some point. I MIGHT make the morning meet up, but that’s uncertain at the moment.

I hope there’s some snow - and good views east and west for sunsets and sun rises!
