Default Yosemite Anyone??

We have talked about a trip to Yosemite and I would like to get the ball rolling. For people who would like to stay overnight in the park or nearby, you need to have a date and get your reservations.

So, I was thinking the weekend of June 24th.

Memorial Day and Father's Day are over and school is out. There is a ton of late snowpack this year so the waterfalls will be amazing through July.

Any feedback or other suggestions welcome.

Rats. I won't be able to make it. The good news is I'll be sunning in Maui at that time! I'll keep checking back to see if the date changes.

I hate to go later than June as Yosemite Valley temperatures get up to the 90's in July and August.

These are usually the beginnings of long, drawn-out negotiations with the War Department. I'll mention it, but don't expect an answer until we see whether or not Nordstroms and Macy's are having sales that weekend.

I'm guessing that's not one of her favorite titles...I know my Mom didn't much care for it although she was an expert in guerilla warfare and close quarters combat

Here's a tip. Tell her you want to attend a POTN meet up in New Zealand. Insist that you MUST go and won't take no for an answer. When she digs in for a long siege, feign surrender and tell her, "All right, Yosemite then".

You can do it. I know you can do it.

There is risk in that, Steve. I might suggest New Zealand and she might say 'Yes.' I don't want to go to New Zealand. Those people are crazy.

well, there's that.
Why a nation of people would adopt as a nickname a type of flightless bird...well that kinda sez it all.

Here's a joke that should get the flame wars started:
************************************************** ****************
A Bloke is having a quiet drink in a bar, leans over to the big guy next to
him and says: "Do you wanna hear a Kiwi joke?"

The big guy replies: "Well, mate, before you tell that joke, you should know
something. I'm six feet tall, 105 kgs and I played rugby as a forward for
the All Blacks. The guy sitting next to me is 6'2", weighs 115 kgs and he's
an ex All Black lock. Next to him is a bloke who's 6'5", weighs 120kgs and
he's a current All Black second rower.

Now, do you still want to tell that Kiwi joke?"

The first bloke says: "Nah, not if I'm going to have to explain it three
times."

No Kiwis should be so offended that they jump on a plane and fly here for the sole purpose of beating the bejabbers outta me.

Sure, Jasen. If the date doesn't work ( and it won't for everyone) you can throw out another one and see who bites.

We are going to be in Greece from May 20th to June 6th. I don't know if we'll have much oomph going the weekend after we get home.

Thge date looks good on my end. My daughter is going to be visiting Grandma this summer for a bit and we can drop Jackson off with the other Grandma so it should be pretty easy for us.

I'll check with Tessa and verify. I love the waterfalls that time of year! Bring a plastic bag and umbrella to protect your gear

Solinger's offer is very generous. The other option is to induce labor a week or two ahead of time. What really maters is the melting of the snowpack. j/k

Trying to pick a time that's acceptable to the greatest number of people is always problematic. I think the best anyone can do is just pick a date and let the chips fall where they may. I think that's what happened with the Cambria trip after days of discussion on a possible date. It all worked out.

Best of luck to you, your wife, and the new family member.
