The consensus has come in, the 2nd Annual JTreeTweetup will be held November 12-14, 2010 (with some participants arriving earlier in the week).
If you missed last year’s event here’s the short story: a tweetup is a gathering of folks who use Twitter. The JTreeTweeup is a climbing/camping gathering of climbers who use Twitter and is held at Joshua Tree National Park, California. This is a free event and everyone is responsible for their own transportation, lodging, climbing gear and safety etc. However, in the spirit of the sharing and caring #climb community, last year I went out early to Joshua Tree and with the help of a few other Twitter folks rounded up some camp sites (Joshua Tree campsites are first come first served for most of the park). Also, many folks carpooled and road tripped it to the event, saving money and the environment at the same time. If you’d like to attend, show your interest in coming by creating an account and adding your name to the wiki page.
This year I’m happy to say that sponsors have already stepped up to the plate for the 2nd Annual JTreeTweetup! So far we have BoulderCanyon sponsoring us with snacks like gluten free chips and all natural munchies. And Climb On! Products is also sending goodies which I’m sure will be helpful for multiple days of climbing on Joshua Tree’s sharp quartzite monzonite rock.
