    Making the hard decisions right now, packing up camping items to make room for hunting items. Will there be room for me to bring The Tent(10×14) or should I not pack up my smaller tent quite yet and bring that 1. I hate to hog ground space at a group site.

    Well, I have arrived safely in MD and box unpacking is almost done.... looks like I will be able to come up for at least one day, Saturday. Still not sure if my wife will attend with me, but we'll see.

    Kevin, I may be able to get the week off after this trip... trying anyway... roughly 28th through the 7th or so... I only live 5 hours from Syracuse now, and will definitely be in touch on one of my trips home. Trying to get to the Dacks around the 1st through 5th or so.

    Outing post coming soon, but I actually managed to finally sleep overnight at my first hammock hang. Great group of folks up in Phippsburg, ME, including our new Mainer friend Roger, who supplied my husband Ted and I with all the supplies needed for a hammock night. Unfortunately the hammock/setup configurations didn't work for either of us, but I haven't given up on hammocks by any means, and really want to keep experimenting.

    If anyone attending this weekend has a spare hammock setup, I'd like to try (in order of preference) either a Warbonnet Ridgerunner, a Dutch Chameleon wide or perhaps a Warbonnet XLC.

    I have a sleeping bag for topquilt, but if someone could spare a good cold weather underquilt for the night I'd be grateful. I do have suspension - dasy chain straps which I'm comfortable using - and whoopie slings which are new to me and I'll have to practice with - and ridgeline/tieout gear, which I'm happy to use and practice on my own.

    Thanks to any volunteers that might help me out :) I will also bring my tent gear, so if something falls through, no problem.

    I am new to the forum but I was wondering if I could join you guys for this event? I am a little South of you guys in Delaware . I really enjoy bushcraft as I have always beeen into the outdoors even when it was called "outdoor lore" . Nowadays I spend some of my weekends in the 18th century and some others with a fly rod in my hands. I love the woods !

    Most definitely, this is the best way to get to know others on the forum! Please hit the ESVP button in the original post so we can get a close idea of how many to expect.

    See you next weekend!

    I got Saturday off, yay. I’ll be headed up sat morning. I’ll brin* some wood for the fire. Are we doing a potluck Saturday night? What’s the cooking situation like? One fire pit or multiple? Looking forward to putting faces to internet handles.

    I believe one fire pit. I’m going to head over early this week to scout it out a bit and report back.

    As far as Saturday potluck that sounds like a fun idea!

    Jake and I are heading over after our Men's Bible Study to scope things out, maybe light a fire and cook lunch, and explore High Rocks if anyone wants to come along. We will post photos later so peeps can get an idea of what the site looks like.

    I'm really looking forward to coming tomorrow! My back has been painful all week and it's tempting to forego, but my motto lately has been "if not now, when??", and if I'm always going to be in pain I might as well enjoy everything despite it!

    See you tomorrow!

    Just a heads up I was talking with Ray and we will either be there Friday or Saturday morning depending on when he gets home from work. With wanting to avoid setting up in the dark he needs to get home by 5 in order to get in before dark( about a 2hr drive from us)

    Somehow my four piles, in the four corners of the room don't seem to be as organized as your system.

    Well, we'll see what I forget.

    Oh I'm sure your right but generally speaking if he is not home by 5 he is not home until 8 or 9 which is just cruel to everyone

    I had some long pieces of black birch, about 5’ long, left from the last carving meet. I sawed one in half today and it is still fairly moist, so I’ll be bringing some of that along for folks to carve. Smells wonderful!

    Sit rep: We had intended to leave by now, but it looks like Jake has contracted whatever his big bro has and is resting on the couch almost asleep. He is mentally determined to go. I think we will make it there but possibly not stay the night and then return in the morning.

    See you all later!
