: Point Rip Trip in August ?

Are there any plans in place for a mid-August trip and if so , how are the arrangements/ reservations handled ? Thanks.

YAH BABY! Point Rip Plans are timely, we should be thinking about it.

First of all, there is the decision on the date based on "key factors". Then there is the commitment for $30 per head for the privilege. We use Paypal for this.

Then you need a backup plan in case of weather. Then the detail about where to meet, etc. A few notes about safety and the possibility of a v-e-r-y long walk, and there you have it!

Anyone want to meister this? That is do everything but collect the payments and write the check to Rip Ryder, understanding that you will have lots of help from everyone interested in going of course.

My suggestion for August dates: August 3rd or 4th; August 17th or 18th

July might be better due to mung

3&4 are out for me personally but 17 & 18 are in! July is tough personally also but majority rules on this one.

I do not want to miss this one...will keep watch of this thread.

I would like to make it out to the Rip in July. Let's see how much interest there is for a trip.

The only time I would be available would be Aug. 11,12,14,15,or 16. I would be willing to help with any details as necessary. If I need to post an email address or phone no. for this purpose, just let me know. billw

This newbie would definitely like to join a Rip-trip )or two or three) this year. Can't see how I could be of use as a Meister, but will help when/how/if I can. Count me WAY in.

I bet you can figure 2 guys who would be interested in seeing the Point Rip in July...

You and Brian are taken care of on that score plus much more. I promise you will be wiped by the end of the day.

Hate to sound like a broken record but is there any interest in in catching an early am outgoing at the point and then fish the outside to the north end? Is it feasible (would Rip Ryder do the north end pickup)?

Good question Fred, can I have a piggy back ride? My strides aren't quite as long as yours :devil: It's actually a great idea. On our famous death march last year every time I stopped I caught nice fish. Plus any extra time could be spent at the north tip which has been producing giant bass lately.

My wrists are aching already! Right now my deathmarch is waiting for the calender to turn...

9 more sleeps! :eyecrazy:

I tried to make a rip trip last year but the weather messed things up. I'll be on the Cape from July 27th until August 17th. Hint, Hint, Hint......:) :devil:

I'd love to get in on a Rip Trip or 2 this summer! I had a blast last year on the one I made.
