    Since some of our lot hang out here I hope you folks don't mind me posting a reminder.

    Base Campers the call to arms is going out Holiday Trek 2009 begins this weekend with official stats starting on Sunday the 22nd so make sure you have your camping spot staked out Friday or Saturday.

    Check in at Base Camp for more details.

    We're going to have an awesome turnout. :toast:

    Good luck!
    Based on how the run time/ points generated / WUs submitted doubled yesterday vs previous days, it was a good choice!

    Although I wholeheartedly support what you are doing journeying around, I have longer-term hopes/plans here at TPU :toast:

    @Ion........I did my four years at a single team....we made 9th in the world at DC Vault AND we were away trekking at least a quarter of each year :)

    It's funny.....with my new team it's deja vu....when there is a trek I lose my whole DC team for a fortngiht at a time :laugh:

    Lets just say we put more emphasis on fun than team ranking.

    Agter a few years running a team one needs fresh motivation.....the "pie" team has re-ignited my enthusiasm :)

    The feeling is mutual. I'm joining your crew on a 'holiday trek" because not only is base camp a phenomenal idea, but you guys were awesome guests. :D
