OBCDR 2014

Postby tdewitt » Wed Jan 15, 2014 1:12 pm

I'm sitting here at work and realized I have to use 64 hours of vacation before May 1st. Anyone interested in doing part of the OBCDR? Think it can be done the end of April?

Hey Terry, good for you having vacation and wanting to travel! I think the majority of the OBCDR at that time of year is rather lofty though, since much of it goes through higher elevations. What I'd do if I were you, is review the GPS tracklogs and scrutinize the elevation patterns. You could probably do some of the OBCDR, but not all.

Right now the plan is for July 4th weekend with a couple days added. I have a couple others interested. But no firm (I'M GOING NO MATTER WHAT) other then me.
I bought the map pack and am working on a easier version to follow while on the trail. Also will have GPS help as needed.

I don't have to book my vacation that far in advance so I'm open for most any date. If things don't work for the 4th I might join you.
