Camping Trip Update

Hey everyone, so I’ve done a little research and I decided to tenatively set a location and date for the Camping Trip to see what kind of response I’d get.

Dillon’s Beach-Lawson’s Landing
Friday-Sunday June 21-23
It’s $30 per night, per campground. A second car is $20 a night, and campsites are maxed at 10 people. The only problem I forsee is if we have more than like 8, we might have to get a second campground, as you can’t have a third car.

The campground is basic accomidations, we’ll be roughing it in the sand, no showers, questionable water, etc.
We can bring a large truck and pack camping gear and whatnot, and I’ve been informed that I can get some firewood from my dad for the trip as well.

If you are coming out of state or more than a few hours from Sac, we can make plans to give you a ride and put you up for a night or so to make it easier.

Please let me know as soon as possible if you are interested, as I have to make reservations.

Camping Trip

I know a few of us discussed a camping trip this summer with the whole group, so I wanted to put something on here for people to look at and think about at their leisure as summer looms closer. If you can write back so we can all get an idea of what we want, it would make a second camping trip much easier.

1) Who is interested in a camping trip? (Keep in mind, this will be in northern/central California)

2) When should it be/when can you go?

3) Where would it be? Any suggestions?


p.s. Hopefully we won’t get attacked by a mountain lion again.

As the blog comments get deleted after a certain amount of time, please post all comments regarding the trip on the “Camping Trip” Topic on the forums.

The Lost Shores Poster

So some people may have noticed a poster in Lion’s Arch with very tiny letters that aren’t English letters. After looking through the forums, someone managed to translate the Krytan alphabet into English. Curae.1837 has done some nice work with the help of Brimstone.3706 to translate the entire poster!

It reads:

The Lost Shores Event

The Lost Shores event starts friday, and it looks pretty legit.  Defend Lions Arch, go to the new map and beat some karka ass, and dive into the new dungeon (for lvl 80’s)!

What I think we should be interested in the most as semi-hardcore Acrossians is the new “Ascend” gear.  This gear is pink in color and has substantially better stats than the normal gear.  We will only be able to score a ring and a back slot accessory version of this new gear for the time being, but it sure as hell looks worth it.  Here is a side by side that was on the GW2 wiki showing the difference in stats from exotic to ascend gear.

It’s time to take our superior dungeon skills to the new dungeon >:D
