Well, if no one is going to take the reigns, then I guess I will. And if I plan it, it will happen close to me, cuz that's just how I roll.
What I'm thinking, is to traverse the 28 mile Ohlone Wilderness Trail, into the Del Valle recreation area.
Start on a Friday afternoon, hike into the night, find our designated campsite (half way point). Spend the night. Hike the rest of the trail on Saturday, leading us into Del Valle. Spend Saturday night in Del Valle. Sunday could be spent on survival skills (fire building, etc), or just relaxing, swimming, fishing, boating, etc. Depart for home on Sunday.
As an added bonus, that might get your significant other to let you go...I could probably talk my wife into be a tour guide for a weekend in San Francisco (about 30 miles from Livermore). While the guys are roughing it in the wilderness, the ladies could be roughing it at a Days Inn, overlooking the Bay (according to my wife, roughing it means a hotel that doesn't have a hot tub).
Alternatively, we could do some day hiking, some camping, and go to the local outdoor shooting range.
Lemme know what you think. Comments, suggestions, etc.
I was thinking mid May, so we don't fall right in the peak season for camping.
Total victory, through self victory.
