4. Meetup Location - We will be meeting up at the North Hollywood Redline Station Parking lot 11232 Cumpston St, Los Angeles, CA 91601 at 2:00pm sharp on Friday, Sept 16th so that we can all leave together and carpool as needed.  It is very important that we leave at the scheduled time to ensure that we make it to campsite in enough time to pitch tents and cook before dark. If you can not make it by the scheduled time, please let the group know in the Camp Group Chat.
