    Mainewoods and I have scheduled a meet up at the Baker Brook campsite of the Great Pond Mountain Conservancy in Orland (just west of Ellsworth) on Sunday, February 5 at 9:00 am. Access is from the North Gate parking area on Bald Mountain Road, and it is about a .7 mile walk to the site. Map here:

    We'll be having a fire, cooking some food (bring enough for yourself or to share if you like), and will spend the day hanging out and palavering about gear, skills, and what have you. We have to supply our own fire wood, so if you feel like bringing a log or two, that would be good. It's winter in Maine, so if the weather really sucks, use your good judgment. Feel free to PM me with questions.

    Does Pond Mountain allow fire wood gathering on site?

    We'll have to lug our own, but I'm sure we can gather smaller stuff to make friction fire sets, etc.

    We'll have to confine ourselves to brown plant matter.
