Thinking of a gathering

I bet the hardest part of a get together is the distances between members. I’m thinking of reaching out and trying to organize a tenkara week or weekend in the eastern Sierra. Our mountain streams are made for tenkara, the fisheries are fantastic.

So I’m trying to gauge interest before further organizing. All are welcome, I could possibly arrange for pick up transportation for those who might fly in.

For those who may be interested please post here. Even if you can’t make it but are interested post.

If I can accommodate anything I would be happy to.

Definitely interested.

This year is booked already for me in terms of trips…but ever since you started posting i got to thinking about the sierras and the golden trout you have out there.

That’s my thought is camp up in the golden trout area.

I like the idea, and have a little long ago past history with the area, both eastern Sierra and golden trout. But, I live with a work/life schedule that runs roughly a year ahead and once set is pretty inflexible.
Given that, if you’re thinking 2020 I’m very interested, 2019 would be perhaps possible but might be difficult.

You guys make a great point, I was thinking this year, but it’s better logistically to plan for next year.

GT is on my bucket list. Mt Whitney GT have been planted in about 50 high lakes in this state. The difficulty in getting to these lakes can vary from moderate off-trail navigation problems to brutal hikes with lots elevation gain, or a combination of the two. At any rate I’d be interested in hearing more about your plans.

Good for me.

Ok sounds like we have the seeds of a great outing. I will start planning now. And we hopefully can keep this tread alive to plan for at least a few of us to meet up!

I have breathing problems at altitude (asthma), at what altitude would this get together be?

The trailhead I used in the past was Cottonwood, pretty high, something just over 10,000’ and a bit of a hike over a pass then down but still in that neighborhood.
There are other places though, and I’m sure someone will chime in with their experiences.

Its a bit high but if you come up a week or so before and acclimate you might be ok.

Actually, I’d recommend at least a day at Horseshoe meadows for everybody. It’s not the 12k+ elevations of some of the places a bit north of there, but it’s still potentially a bit of a shock.
This is sounding awfully good to me though!
For my scheduling do you think you’d have a time by this Dec 1?
