Meet up in Torrey in October 2018

Everyone is invited to "meet up" in the town of Torrey, Utah. It will be a four-day weekend event starting Friday October 5 through Monday October 8. Come early, stay late, or visit a day or two.

Our first meet-up in Southern Utah was Fall 2010 so we are now in our ninth year!

There is much to see and do in the Torrey area.

We can hike in nearby Capitol Reef National Park (CRNP). We'll have natural bridges, arches, cathedral rock, slot canyons - so many choices.

With passenger cars we should be able to enjoy driving up and down the switchbacks of the Burr Trail. And add the panoramic Strike Valley Overlook on the Waterpocket Fold.

We can carpool and go "off roading" in the back country of Cathedral Valley.

Canyoneering is available in the Robbers Roost and Dirty Devil River area with the outfitter: Get in the Wild. (Remember this at the Green River meet-up?)

Visiting the Fruita Historic District.

Splashing through Sulphur Creek. Some of us did this as a group a few years back. Check out: http://climb-utah.com/Capitol/sulphur.htm and video for a nice preview.

Torrey offers a full range of accommodations: camping, RV and trailer park, cabins, vacation home rentals, and numerous motels. There are plenty of restaurants plus a market to buy groceries.

Everyone can join in at Happy Hour at the Sunset Point in CRNP.

Group dinners are a favorite part of every meet-up. At restaurants or a cook-out at one of the vacation homes. Maybe a pizza party one night.

Rumors were spread at last Fall's meet-up that a few folks may want to leave Torrey after the meet-up and head to Lake Powell and rent a houseboat for 2 or 3 nights.

OhioHick will set up a meet-up website for us and we can all chime in, plan the details, or just chat at about what a good time we're going to have.

Everyone is invited. Do you want to join us?

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Mrs pg and I are planning an epic Euro trip starting in early August..... Iceland, Scotland, Tuscany, French wine region and South England.... ending mid September.. This may break the bank on us for other trips. We'll have to decide if we can add the meet-up 2 weeks after we return home. I'll be glad to still participate in the forum on places to see and go. But probably won't commit to joining the party until last minute.

Definitely planning a springtime trip near the Henry Mts and Bear's Ears after the ski season is over if anyone is interested. Obviously camping to be close to all the hikes.

PG - I guess that ends the idea of houseboat on Lake Powell after the meet up.

I expect to be in Hanksville mid-May once again.

And I think if you make a reservation at Austin's Chuckwagon Lodge it can be cancelled.
