    Looks like August 11, 12, 13, 14 in the East TN area

    Nothing too rough. Just a little walkabout in the Park
    Looking to do another weekend camping trip around here as well this late summer early fall.

    Anyone else interested?

    I'm in.... I've currently got the 11 thru the 14 off. I'll be down Thursday night, the 10th, after work and come back on the 14th if its alright.

    What are we doing about food?

    My buddy. I had my own 5 gal GI water can, always carried it and a solar shower, my own 5 gallon water cooler, a case of MREs, duffel bag, ruck, pogie bait, and that was just for range fire.

    I'm always up for tree rats, they just don't fit easily into a Jetboil.....

    Mt. House it is!

    Or maybe we could theme it as NBC weekend... Dig a hole and crawl into it for 3 days reading Nuclear War Survival

    Let me know when you start thinking about the fall one. If things are doable and its not durring deer season I may have to see how close I can get to you by train since it seems to be a fairly affordable and non invasive way to travel.

    It's a go. mm, I'll let you know about a Fall trip. Hell, I'd like to see a LOT of folks make it out then.

    Otherwise, I'll be gone this entire weekend. I gave the keys to Benevelous....
    look him up
