Vantage/Gloyds 5/18-21/2012

Post by TravisK » March 26th, 2012, 11:11 am

Got a field trip planned, and it's open invite. There will be some invert people coming along, but they are all decent guys. I promise ;-)

Meet Fri evening at the camp ground in Vantage just SE of the bridge. Do some night cruising and black lighting.

Sat do some late morning-lunch time exploring around vantage then head over to Gloyds and set up camp. If the bugs and herps are good we will probably just stay till Monday, but willing to relocate if the results are less than desirable.

Please reply to thread if interested in joining. It would be nice to finally meet some of you West Siders, aside from the few I have already met.


Cheers,
Travis K

Dang it! If that was not on a weekend between 2 class field trips I would be there in a heart beat. Let me know what you find and take lots of pics!

Thanks Andy for reminding me and a couple other guys that the 13th is Mother's Day. :crazyeyes:

I revised the dates in my original post.

Crap, I think that is going to be right in the middle of one of my 10 day shifts on the Snake River.

That doesn't sound too bad to me...

I hope you can find some time to do some herping down there and some fishing too.

Hey, just wanted to say the revised dates (19-20 May) look good to me. I gonna try and make it out and do some herping with you guys.

Travis, I remember we had missed getting together last fall as plans got changed around a bit. So, here's hoping that I can meet up with you this time around.

Cheers,

Fil

Fil,

I hope you can make it. I am sitting here looking at the rain outside my office window and am now very much looking forward to my first outing for the year.

So far it's three guys and a girl (which reminds me of a car ride I took with Andy last summer), but no one else besides myself from FHF. I think there were more of you that would have been able to come on Mother's Day weekend. Do you guys love your moms? Anyway it would be fun to have two or three more people to come along. I am not sure how much water will be present in the Gloyds area but we will have one canoe and one inflatable kayak to mess around with in the ponds and lakes. My boss went up there last year on a boy scout camp out with his kid and the troop found two NPRs, but killed and ate them :evil: :cry: :evil: So I know there are crotes around that area.

My project got pushed back, so I might be able to make it for part of this.

At least they ate them. Honestly people that kill and eat rattlesnakes don't bother me any more than deer hunters or fisherman that eat what they keep. Hope you guys do well, Make sure to follow up with pictures.

Sorry I couldn't make it, I had to take off for SW WA earlier than I thought I would.

Anyway, hope you guys cleaned up.
