    Ok. I'm blind. Just went back and was poking around some more when I saw the first bullet point at the landing page and it said "$25 camp fee, paid at the event." :34:

    By early October, I might have a handle on the new job. I will DEFINATELY be ready for some dirt time! I'll try to keep that weekend open and go.
    @WY_Not , @Panzer and @hlydon , would you be in for the whole weekend or just a day?

    It is Zanesfield, I thought Zanesville as well till I googled it. It is almost straight north of you and probably not too far

    I'd love to attend and meet you all (its about an hour and a half from me) but it's my wedding anniversary and I made the mistake once of being gone with the guys for it, I'll never make that mistake again. :11: I'll keep my eyes open for the next one though!

    I’m not sure what the rules are for buying, selling, trading at the event, but I’m going to bring a couple of things to sell or trade. I might even have a gift or two to give out.

    How long do most of you plan to be there on Sunday. I have to work Saturday but plan to come up on Sunday morning still trying to get Saturday off but not looking promising.

    I’ll likely be there until mid-morning unless some sort of activity is going on, and then I’ll stay longer.

    Maybe we need to put up a BCUSA banner as a rallying point. If it snows, @jswi2374 can use his minivan as the banner.

    Keeping my eye on this. Not too too far. Only 2.5 hours. Weekends are hard to get off work for me but I will try though.

    I’ll be there Fri-Sun.

    We can do bring your own food/drink, or we can coordinate some drinks and a meal.

    I’ll have a few things to sell and probably a giveaway or two.

    Swapping gear has been approved if there is enough interest there might be an official swap blanket set up. FYI More info on the facebook page.

    Yikes. Didn't realize approval or permission was needed to exchange one's private property with another and their private property. :33:

    Anyway, should be fun weekend. Hope to see lots of you bums at the meet. :4:

    So, anyone bringing or willing to bring a big dutch oven? I can dig around in the freezer and see if I can find a roast or two of home grown beef and/or pronghorn. Someone can bring some veggies (carrots, potatoes, onion, etc). Perhaps someone can bring bread again? I can bring the reflector oven. :32:

    Will be bringing a couple dozen butt nuggets from the girls.

    Might even have a beverage or two in the camp box. :54:

    Also, will be loading up some firewood from home to bring.

    I think we have the following scheduled to show up...
    @WY_Not
    @Panzer
    @hlydon
    @Pacer01
    @jswi2374
    @bartman

    The possibles...
    @cory3087
    @Indianaboy

    Any chance of you two making the short drive over, @Redwing and @CowboyJesus ?

    Anyone else I'm missing or that needs a shout out?

    I will know today if I can get Saturday off. I will be there for the day if I do but I won’t be able to stay over night. I have never met any of you or been to any of the event. What should I bring?

    Whatever you would bring for a normal campout. There are restrooms available, might want to bring a roll of TP just in case.

    Food - Bring enough for yourself at least. We'll probably have enough of us bringing extra to throw a group meal or two together but no guarantees.
    Beverage of choice. Water, tea, coffee, etc.
    Something to prepare food and drinks in. Utensils.
    Camp chair.
    Trade goods. If you have any gear you want to try swapping.
    Teachable attitude.

    Not staying the night?!?!?! You are going to miss out on midnight bacon! That reminds me, I need to pick up some bacon.

    The classes that I have heard about that will be going on are land navigation, shelter building and bow drill. There maybe more. So I would plan on having a day pack with gear and food to sustain you for the day. Boots, gloves, knife, etc. All the standard bushcraft gear

    My elderly 87 year old father-in-law is in the hospital—nothing immediately life threatening at the moment. Assuming he is cleared to go home and the wife approves, I’ll be there hopefully early afternoon Friday.

    I’ll bring extra food and drink. I’ll also bring firewood, trade/sell items, and a gift or two.

    Sir,
    I have a 12 inch by 5 inch deep Dutch, with legs. Would this vessel be adequate? Please advise.

    I get Saturday off so I will be up Saturday morning. I’m looking forward to this, I have never been to an event like this. Sounds like this will be a good time
