Expandables Field Trip? October 27-29 Bakersfield CA - Fall Event West

Edit: This is a planning thread for The Expandables team to coordinate travel

The event thread is here: https://www.mcarterbrown.com/forums/w...st-2017-a.html

-----------------------------

We were discussing the west coast the other weekend and I mentioned that SPEW is on my paint bucket list. Now it looks like Gilly is planning a fall version due to popular demand and suddenly I don't want to wait for 2018 Is anyone up for a potential field trip in October?

Wally and I will be in cahoots to get something going.
In the past, dry weather and winds has hindered being able to have campfires/bonfires. A lot depends on cooperation with environment conditions.
If you guys can deal with propane fires only we can proceed immediately.
The last weekend in October is what I'm thinking.
Halloween is Tuesday after.


Let's start the planning.

camping is probably out but plenty of hotels 20-30 minutes from the field.

It looks like flights from BWI in to Bakersfield run around $400, just playing around on Kayak, so we could keep this under $1k each, I think. Not peanuts by any means, but hopefully low enough for a couple others to join us.

I will most likely have enough hotel points to cover a few rooms at a decent hotel. We can ship gear out ahead of time to save baggage fees.

I have a few night's worth of Hilton points to contribute as well, and yeah, definitely prefer to ship especially paintball guns and bottles ahead of time

Edit: probably not enough to do anything other than lock everybody into a more expensive chain... sorry

Flounder, what chain/program are your points?

Thanks, Gringo. We will keep that in mind


Alright, so far:

[Moved to first post]

There's still room for plenty more

Once Gilly publishes some details we'll hammer out dates and itinerary and pull the trigger
