Ok I only counted 13 beds, I call top bunk!

This is gonna be a blast, I kinda wanted to do a similar getaway but on the coast. I'll bring the usual gear and my iMac. Should we do a food signup?

@Shuttercraze: We can do a food signup once everyone's signed up and paid via paypal. And then i'll book the place and we can start planning all the fun details for the weekend :)

Darn, can't make this one. Sounds like a lot of fun, hopefully there will be more strobist camps in the future.

That's a bad weekend for me. Sounds like fun but I'll have to pass.

OK, I am totally down! Um Sarah? You coming? I will submit the cash on pay pal right now. I have to leave super early in the morning on Sunday.

Does anybody know what the odds are of requiring chains? Snow should be off the roads by then right?

lol @ placebo... I might be able to take the chorus. hehe

Hmmm sounds fun, but my massive fear of commitment hinders me yet again. I might take a last minute open spot. Have fun kids!

really enjoyed the strobist event last month but I'm going to be out of the country during that weekend.
DennisGoetz 8 years ago
ooh, sounds like fun, count me in please
Oh, man, this would be awesome but I can't make it that weekend.
Daynatron Posted 8 years ago. Edited by Daynatron (member) 8 years ago
Not gonna be able to make this; contact me if anyone's interested
in taking my spot for $85 in cash/paypal/blood.

Oh the openings are calling my name. I am so worried about the roads and snow though. I will keep looking, I may be a last min. attendee. :0)

Butterfly - One of the reasons we did this shoot so late was because of the roads and crazy drivers. Only the diehard ski/board fans are still going by this time, most people are thinking about summer by this time. Secondly, I am sure you could car pool with someone if you don't want to drive.
OregonVelo 8 years ago
Also, for those that are interested. I will be shooting a mountain bike race on Sunday about 30 minutes from where we will be staying. If you like to join me, you are welcome to and I would be more than willing to help you with the ins and the outs of racing/photography etiquette.
wish i could :)
@ Daynatron :( You'll be missed!
I will try and organize the food side so if everyone coming can shoot me an email at heatherjones @ and this way i can keep everyone updated :)
Just a week away! I'm so excited!!! Can't wait...

Wish I could, but I have other work to do on Saturday, so have to skip this one :-)

Hey funky, maybe we should arrange a cheap bastard strobist shoot for the same day? I found myself abstaining from this thread for a long time because I'd like to attend, but I've been spending too much money on gear and such lately and I'm hoping to see Mr. Hobby this summer. . .

Hit me back if you want to do something else, probably fairly informal (and forgive my thread hijacking!). I'm sure I could scare up at least one willing victim, err model;->

ok, the directions and info has been e-mailed to everyone individually, so please let me know if you havent received the directions yet?
average plant [deleted] Posted 8 years ago. Edited by average plant (member) 8 years ago
Ok, looks like there will be too much gear to all fit in one car for the original carpool plans. I am going to be driving up on Friday, and will have extra room in my car. Does anyone want to get a ride with me so I am not driving a car up with just one person?

Also, I have two more models that want are both down with coming up on Saturday for the shoot, but they may need a ride. Is anyone coming up on Friday?

Private message me, please!
metakephoto PRO 8 years ago
Unfortunately Heather can't make it this weekend, so if anyone wants to take her spot, i'm sure we can negotiate a reduced rate for taking her spot. So just flickr-mail me privately if you'd like to come and i'll send you the directions by Friday at 12:30pm.

see everyone later tonight :)
