We will miss your company! I hope all is well!
How's this look?
I'm definitely gonna be a watcher of the atlatl festivities, but is there anything I can bring to help with them? What wood makes good arrows? Etc
Hear ye hear ye....
With the donations given to help cover cost. Extra is normally given to the local food bank. This go around all extra gifts will go to one of our own. If you been around awhile you know Cro. If you are new it will only be a matter of time till he touches your life with knowledge and bush wisdom. Bring extra if you can and I will see that the funds go to help he and his family on behalf of our group in the PNW. God bless and Happy day
Sorry to hear that, but understood.
We'll miss you Ken!
Have to wait till next time to see your teeny tiny bow drill...
I will bring one from Ken and see if we can figure it out. Still a mystery for me on how Ken pulls it off?
I'm off to go camping with the nice people from the internet!...
See y’all tomorrow!!!!!!!
I'm packing and getting ready for food shopping. I'm at a loss for what to bring for Potluck. Buying for unknown others is intimidating! I'm thinking of locally made (small German deli/meat processors) Bratwurst. Any better suggestions? Be there early tomorrow afternoon. I' really looking forward to this.
Sounds good! I'm bringing some veggies to cook in the Dutch oven with coconut milk on Saturday.
Last minute question: Is the site big enough that someone (who is me) could conceivably fit a small 23' RV in anywhere? I've been putting in asdfghjkl-tier hours at work lately and I'm definitely not packed for a weekend, so at this point it may just be easier to bring home with me. I've got no knowledge of the site, but it is a group site, right?
I also just might be able to shield some of yall from the most casually-prying of snowflake eyeballs with the thing's bulk if the site is set up right for it... just an idea.
Where we are is tent only. There is RV spots available in the park just not right by the G1 location we are using. Wouldn't be a big deal to use those spots and than join us. Sometimes I feel I am getting closure to the RV lifestyle too.
@plantedtao is our sole source for green stuff Anyone else brings that stuff would be considered a suspect for anti bushcraft fare
So brats is always good. There will be lots of meat and hopefully beans(fiber)
Sweet. I checked it out and it looks like I might be able to get a spot right across from yall.
Johnson's meats!!! For sausage and smoked stuff. Best jerky I've had, just a few miles away from the meet!
Bring money my trade blanket is turning into a garage sale. Lots of good high end stuff.
Been years since I truck camped. I'll bet I forget more stuff than on any canoe run. I'm bringing a folding table like BDH's above, a big wok to keep my pan roasted red potatoes warm so folks can scoop 'em as they like while grazin' through the potluck. Brats are a must, so I'm bringing some, too. Some of them go into the potatoes. Coupla dozen happy hen eggs from a gal at work, and some extra steel cookware (on the large side) if needed.
EDIT: And, something extra for the cause
My daughter and I will be there on Saturday. This will be a large turn out....I'll bring lots of kale.
Looking forward to a trade blanket. Bringing $ and gear!!!
Made a potato salad. I am also ready to check out the trade blankets. Always room for some more much needed gear!
I'll cook up some campfire beans. Hitting Silvana Meats on the way down too.
Trucks packed and on the the ferry. A few hours at work and heading south. Looking forward to seeing you guys soon. Happy day
Okay, I'm here. Is there a way to drive directly into the group area? No vehicle access that I can see. Back road is gated off???
I don't think you can drive into the camp site propper. We've always parked in the lot and walked a short distance in to where we camp.
You have to park by the pay station and hoof it in. There is a little trail to access the area.
Thanks. Ill start humpin it in. If you find me on the ground , dying o the sloberin fits, just ignore it.
As I'm reading this I have a huge pot of Chile on the stove finishing up, got the Beans part covered, see you all soon!
How far of a walk? Just thinking about the hay bales packing in lol
0830 hours: just talked to ranger. Will unlock back access road so both sides of site can be driven close in to unload, Also will open restroom. Site is roughly circular around shelter. Walk in varies as to which site is left as you arrive. There are auxiliary trails leading in from parking areas that may shorten carry. Average distance might be 50 to 75 yds. Will help with anything heavy. John.
I have some chafing dish burners to bring if someone thinks they can use them. Not sure if I can find the pans though
I am getting ready to head out. I think I have loaded more stuff then I used to use for a weeks vacation with the family in an RV. I have to quit going through the gear room and seeing stuff I just might need. If they don't open the gate I might need pack animals! Be there in an hour or so. Can't wait!
Man, I should have taken off work today. I haven't even had a chance to pack yet so I will be rolling in fairly late tonight. Still super excited about it though, this is gonna be great!
I’m still getting ready...
Football coaching, and volunteer work are killing my prep times...
See you folks soon!
Heading to the meat store now then south... there’s four of us this time around
Just cookin up a bacon sandwich right now. Place is deserted
On the way. Hope Hope you guys want chili Verde de chivo
I'm open to trying most anything once. However, I approach things like chili with great caution. Not as tough as I used to be.
I was gonna try to head that way earlier but I've been trying to get axes ready and loaded up while watching my toddler. Not an easy task. Gonna head to the feedstore in a few and get the hay bales, then head over! If you see a silver Nissan Titan wave lol
Lots of stuff loaded up... taking off now. I should be there in about 3-4 hours.
I’m probably still forgetting stuff. Why does truck camping seem harder...
You guys send smoke my way if you get time please. I'll be stuck at a wedding instead of hunting or camping. I predict I'll be drinking heavily by this time tomorrow night.
That doesnt sound too horrible..... lol
Give them enough to drink tonight and they might not notice your gone tomorrow. Just saying
Not sure I'll be back tonight or not. If anyone is interested in my stuff for sale there just hold on to it and shoot me a text or find me tomorrow : ) also I brought a hefty chunk of community fatwood. Feel free to take pieces of it if you'd like.
Great meeting the ones I met so far. Look forward to meeting everyone else!
Fyi to anyone coming for the first time, you park to the left of the toll booth cabin, there is a bunch of cars there, can't miss it. After that follow the smoke and the BS : )
@Bone and I are finally under way. ETA is 2 hours. Dont party too hard without us!
See you soon!
Well....missing out again....I'm getting really sick of all work and no play...super bummed I'm not making it to meet you all. Hope you all have a great weekend.
The weather is great so far as well as the company...
If you can stop by and enjoy the fire, the folks with to many sharp things, or lots of food.
Leaving Seattle now. See y’all in a hour or so.
