Sequoia National Park

As with many things on this group. This trip is special and different.

Of course the ADDED layer of this being recent Post Covid

Let’s get to that part first.. We will proceed with safety as paramount.

We have booked out the entire site so we will be able to control density, and distance on every level. Tents will be spaced from each other, and campfire will be divided among several so that distance kept there. Food prep will not be one single kitchen as normal but rather divided to several. Additionally we will forego the normal Pot Luck we do on arrival as the idea of food you did not personally prepare, with several people touching while serving, is just not a good thing at the moment.

All restrooms are flush toilets and NOT pit/septic toilets. Being real porcelain they are able to be cleaned often and regularly, and actually be clean. We will also have free hot showers available.

So we will very much manage distance, cleanliness/hygiene, and safety.

Our site ALSO is:

*on grass (half of them) and not dirt. As well as mostly shaded.

*on the river so we can take a dip whenever we wish.

* located close to (food) stores and restaurants so you do not need to totally rough it if the mood does not strike you.

OK . . . Tell me about food and everything else. What’s included?
The logistics of us providing food (as well as food prep issues with Covid) are just not feasible or safe.
Due to varied dietary needs, and food contact issues, it’s better if bring what you like and prep it. There will be grills available.
BUT there are also local options. No need to cook too much if you don’t want to.
Firewood: We will provide a bundle of firewood to start. If you want a super roaring fire you can pickup some extra at the small store.

Carpools? We will provide a carpool resource. BUT it’s still Covid. So be very aware of this.
