    Hi – I’d like to come .. what are the logistics / details – eg. usual times to meet/fly/eat on Fr. Sat Sun etc.
    I’ll be driving to SF for conference on Sun nite – so would rather stay in motel x couple nites near by if any – or do they have cabins (?)

    Hi Andre,
    Rides to launch are usually organized in the AM at the group sites. Meet times are hard to say since it’s weather dependent. My suggestion would be to just get to the group sites by 9am to see what the plan is on Sat and Sun. Friday is more just a free for all and most pilots just meet sometime around noon or later and hangout near the LZ which is across the street from the ranger station which is just about a mile North of the campgrounds. Phone service is very spotty at best in this area so you just have to find each other by hanging out near the LZ. There is a Motel 3 miles South of Plaskett Creek campgrounds but I don’t know the name of it. There is also an Inn at Ragged Point which is 7 miles South. I highly encourage camping if possible for the experience!
