IF YOU HAVE A CAR AND CAN DRIVE, PLEASE E-MAIL ME ASAP. I'll put a list of drivers together so everyone can hopefully find a driver.
 
It's back: The best and most important OTL trip of the year. The location?  Our friendly yet dominating neighbor Mt. Baldy, elevation 10, 064 ft.  The purpose? To celebrate freedom, more specifically the freedom associated with not wearing pants.
 
This is a 8 to 12 mile roundtrip dayhike where all men are required to wear speedoes (or briefs if you cant find a speedo) and all women are required to wear a two piece bathing suit.  Moustaches and german accents are highly recommended, as are hiking boots with high socks, sunglasses, fanny packs, and techno music. A love of gunther and chainsmoking lucky strikes a plus.
 
Be part of the most meaningful event to hit the 5Cs, until December's Mammoth Reading Days.
 
WE NEED AS MANY CARS AS WE CAN GET. THIS IS GOING TO BE A VERY POPULAR TRIP AND WE WANT TO BE ABLE TO TAKE AS MANY PEOPLE AS POSSIBLE.
