    I know it is what some may call a little early but sharing ideas to come what everyone would like to see. I am think a spring, summer and fall as possible get togethers, family based, and location should change for the reason of exploring and learning about other locations. Thoughts?

    We said we wanted to make friendly to a wider audience, ie family-friendly.
    What would make the weekend more friendly to a wider audience within our families?

    Obviously, less rain would help.

    Mid summer might be best for family. Kids out of school, warmer weather, longer daylight hours.

    So far we have only done one. End of September in the Jemez Mountains.

    @WhisperInThePine, good point. Unfortunately it is a delicate balancing act to pick a date. Our fire season goes from mid-late May until early-mid July when the monsoon rains start. This year we tried mid-late June but had to cancel because of the fire restrictions. So we rescheduled to late September, thinking that would miss the rains but as you saw it was the rainiest time of the summer.

    People were talking like mid-late May might be an option. Hopefully this would be late enough to be getting warm but early enough to miss the fire restrictions. What do you guys think?

    It is always roll of the dice with weather on any outing but it seems the dice came up with rain on everyone's first group outing.LOL!!

    I wouldn't mind help organizing another one up in the Jemez in the summer if everyone would like.

    I think a mid May get together would be good farther south because of the warmer weather?

    I'm keeping an eye on this thread and hoping the meet up will be a date that I can make.

    I would like to put up a date of Saturday- September 15, 2018 at the same location in the Jemez. This will be something I will work towards because of my having schedule vacation so far in advance to secure the time off.

    BTW, there is no reason there can't be 2 gatherings. There probably will be no single date that everyone can make.

    Hey @captjim_nm, maybe you could pick a location and a date for this. March is probably the earliest I could make it.

    If anyone is around the Mrs and I will be celebrating our honeymoon starting tomorrow. Yes, on Oct 14th we got married in our back yard here. So we will be at the same spot we were for the meet.
