    I would like us to get together one weekend sometime in October. I would imagine weekends would work best for everyone. Thinking a fire side chat, fishing, outdoor cooking and whatever else. So who is up for it?
    @MrFixIt if you are willing to help in this endeavor it would be great.

    @MrFixIt Well that depends on where we can all agree on going. I would say see how many people respond and pick a location that is cental to everyone. Unless someone would like to host it. What do y'all think.

    Possibly. The GA Bushcraft campout, just outside of Athens, is the weekend of November 2-4 so most my "honey credits" will be going towards that weekend. I believe the Woodsrunner school in South Carolina may have something going on in October as well. Both good options unless a smaller, more intimate outting is desired.

    I was going to leave that up to everyone else. My schedule is pretty open. I would like to have a "just us" kind of thing but I am definitely not against others there as well. I am open to suggestions as to where at and what to do. Never really been to any bushcraft outings with other people before so I really don't know what I'm doing. Lol

    I don't see why it wouldn't be. You might have to drive further.

    Most definitely. From the very bottom to the top, but if I can manage it it’d be worth it to meet some of y’all. Especially that world famous @MrFixIt

    Indeed! There is a primitive camp site at Ft. Yargo in Winder, GA. I'll have to some research for any others.

    Anybody is more than welcome to come. I was just thinking about everyone driving. But if you want to drive then come on when ever we decide on a location and time.

    @MrFixIt Said October 12th - 14th at Ft. Yargo. That is fine with me. I haven't seen anybody say that it wouldn't work for them.

    Ft. Yargo has walk in sites for $25 a night. 2 tents are allowed per site. There are no restrictions on hammocks. Potable water is available at a nearby "Comfort Station".
    If electricity is desired, that would cost more (I didn't ask how much, figured we would not need electricity...?)
    There are fire rings, grills, and picnic tables at each site.

    Don't check here often but sounds like awesome time. Unfortunately, we have an event the family goes to every year during that time. When there is another one, let me know!

    I went there a little over two years ago for wilderness first aid certification. It's too commercial based for me now. I'm more about the small group fellowship and skill share than the "latest and newest" large groups.
