Goldstrike, Craig,

The claim is near Belden, Ca, it is on Caribou Road, on the North Fork. See pictures I posted last year, including a map.

The outing is scheduled for the weekend of May 21 &22, 2011. I will be up there on Friday, and am planning on going up before this time to scout some more. Further scouting plans will be discussed at our next mtg.

thanks, sourdough joe

Can you dry camp in this area, not up on campgrounds with stores and restraunts. If not which campground are people going to camp? I would be going up friday since this is going to be a long haul.

Ok I missed those two pictures in the Oct 6 outing which I think is what you are talking about. So are those pictures of camping on the actual claim?
