    So...
    Found this forum and joined back in 2010 as an escape from school and work. Met a couple folks on here, and we had a meet up. Went fairly well, as informal as it was.

    I've seen some new posts from SD folks recently, and figured what the hell?

    So, I am proposing a west river meet, late summer early fall. We could do an east river one too, especially during pheasant season. Any interest out there? Lots of options... We could even do a winter one, xc skiing and snowshoeing, what have you.

    Thoughts?

    Another bump, then gonna start setting a date and such.

    Any other interested parties?

    Last call...

    Will be me and my bowyer roommate hosting, with assist from my friend Kyle if Kyle can make it. Both are inactive members on here.

    WY, MT, ND, MN, IA, NE, all surrounding states are welcome. If you're game and want to come from further (Canada?), you're sure welcome but we need to know in by May 1st to get this together.

    If you wish to invite such members, please do so, I posted in the Liar's Bench.

    Will bump this thread here and there, May 1st is the cutoff.

    Late summer early fall, dates TBD.

    Cool, we have a head count of sorts. I'll talk with my roommate and see what we can come up with for proposed dates.

    So the first 3 of us are fairly flexible, what's good for you other 3? I was thinking after the Rally would be best. How many days you guys wanna do? Like 3? Mid week, weekend?

    After the rally would be good, I'd probably only be able to do a day or two.

    After Rally it is, will figure on two days. Will pick dates. Will attempt to tag a coworker here, he will make it seven if he can attend. New member on here. Northern Hills fellow.

    I propose August 17-19th. 17th is a Friday, 18th-19th is Saturday and Sunday. Actual goings on will be Saturday mostly.

    Thoughts? If we get consensus, then it's deciding location.

    I will be at the steam and threshing show in sturgis that week end otherwise i am flexible. i find things quieter in the hills after laborday, alot less tourist and atv problems.. I live near Roubaix lake if that helps with a meet up area. some good areas to my west to meet.

    Recalculating, will pick new dates. Was thinking up behind or at Hanna campground, or out around Black Fox. If we do a campground with grates we can do fire. Castle Peak is an option too. Roubaix is good too.

    Never been to Grizzly Bear, but have driven past several times. It's down south off the pigtails, fairly close to Rushmore, but I never hear anyone talk about it. Maybe once or twice in outdoors circles.

    New proposed date, September 8-9, should be uncrowded but raises family stuff since school has started if you have kids. Does this work?

    If it does, then location. I'm for wherever, but some of you folks have drive time and work issues. Haven't been in the "remote" southern hills for a while, I'm leaning that way.

    There's tons of places we've been to, just a question of where fire is legal.

    Options on the table, folks!

    good for me, campgrounds are alot quieter that time of year. Hanna is nice, black fox is nice. both are a little more secluded. Open to other ideas. Even the wyoming side. anyone know what sand creek is like?

    I haven't been on the forum for a long time but would be interested in a meet up again for sure if it's still open to more people. Sand Creek is great for camping. It's right next to a nice stream, quite, and has a nice hiking path nearby that has plants that are not seen anywhere else in the area.
