    Hmm..... Well, if it was back in my single days, I can think of a list of women I would take.....
    Dudes? Just about any of those prissy looking boys who have done bad ass action movies. I would guess in most cases they would cry like a new born baby when a pack of coyotes lit up 50 yards from camp.

    But honestly, NONE! Not a single one! Them folks in Follywood can hold my beer, because we are not your kind!



    Now if celebrity means some of the guys and gals keeping things real about bushcraft or back woods camping on you tube, I could name a few that I think it would cool to set up camp and have a night around the fire talking with.


    Heck! There are more folks right here on this site I would love to meet and get a trip in with then anyone in Follywood. I may not be as skilled or be able to keep up with many of you, but I sure would try and have a blast doing so.

    She wouldn't have to do much! But sure would keep my enthusiasm way up.

    The late Macho Man Randy Savage. I have a feeling there was so much cocaine running through him you could hold a tinder bundle close to him and it would just ignite (As long as you didnt get it all greasy)

    Nope. Can't think of a single celebrity I'd want tagging along. Can you imagine having to listen to all that mindless, self-effacing drivel, while you're trying to enjoy your dirt time?

    Ahhhhh......a Hollywood star...:) Don't sell them too short folks, they are people after all. :) Some of them might be shiny, happy, plastic people, but they are people.

    How about Robyn Williams? I'd have liked to spend a few days with him. See what he was really like behind the jokes.

    Thinking of someone else that would be interesting to chat with..... It would have to be someone that seemed to have a sense of humor, but with a serious side too. There are of course some leading ladies who would be welcome in camp, ;) for some conversation. I have met a few people who were in the entertainment industry and they weren't quite the way they " put it out there". :)

    I heard that John Voight, Burt Reynolds, and Ned Beatty were fun to take on camping trips.

    On a more serious side, I can't think of too many these days. But if the OP is willing to entertain celebrities from the past, I would. . .

    . . . want to sit around the fire in the four corners region with Louis L'Amour,

    . . . go fishing with Ernest Hemingway

    . . . sit on the African plains with Humphrey Bogart, Lauren Bacall, and Robert Ruark.

    No question. Sylvester Stallone. Word has it he's a total bad ass in real life. It would be cool to camp with a real Rambo

    If you want to camp with a Rambo, come to the Northwood and camp with @Primordial ! He even has a Rambo knife. :)

    Oh.....wait a minute....maybe it was a rainbow knife I was thinking about....

    :18::18::18:

    Different thing, never mind. ;)

    Of those now alive, none.
    None of them would be worth the aggravation .

    Mentally, morally, politically they just do not want an old red neck deplorable cop from flyover country on their shiny imaginary world. And I don't want any part of theirs.

    There are quite a few members I wouldn't mind spending some dirt time with. :dblthumb:
    Got my own quirky reasons for putting those two jokers at the top of the " list";).
    Another one would be @NevadaBlue .:) Grouchy old coot that he is:18:

    Hollywood celebrities:. Can't think of any specifically but I've seen a few articles in the past that make me think there are some cool people in the bunch.

    Mike Rowe would be a cool dude to hang with.

    Quite a few people here. If I could absorb even 1/10 the knowledge and skill some of you possess...

    Joe Rogan, he would bring some great party favors and he can hold a conversation.

    Mike Rowe may be similarly conversationally gifted.

    Les Stroud, Cody Lundin although I think Les would be more pleasant based upon screen personality.

    Other than that I dont know enough about any of them to make a choice, characters portrayed, products endorsed etc do not tell.me who they are as a person.

    Another vote for Mike Rowe or Joe Rogan.

    Red Green would be hilarious as well.

    How about the MacKenzie brothers?

    I didn't want to name names from here because most of the people who post on a regular basis sound like they would be great to learn a thing or 20 from, and just seem down to earth. I will say though, that a camp with @ReallyBigMonkey1 would be a hell of a fun trip. His attitude and demeanor are just flat out down to earth, silly, and knowledgeable. Get a group of us together and get some filming in, start the whole thing with a huge chorus of "Hey Everybody".

    It's okay, they could sell one knife per week and I bet you would have plenty left! :dblthumb:

    That said, there are lots of reasons for me to get out west to Cali...... sometime..... maybe when it is not hot there anymore? :D

    Most of the people I might have wanted to spend any time with are gone now. The first adults who treated me like an adult were “Sonny” and “Newt” a couple of my dad’s hunting friends. Sadly they were pretty old when I first met them and by the time I was of hunting age they had given it up, but I did fish with them a fair amount.

    “If there’s a rock and roll heaven well you know that got a hell of a band”. And if there is a happy hunting ground you can bet those two are raining hell on the animals there.

    I think Nick Offerman would be fun to hang out with.
