    I had a great time with everyone that showed up. There were a total of 8 that were there. Coyote Ron and I were there for 4 nights camping and had 8 days worth a rain.

    There are two types of fun. There's the roller coaster fun, which is a blast while it's happening but you don't get a good story out of it.

    Then there's the type of fun which is misery and strife, but is fun to tell later on.

    This weekend was the latter. Great people made terrible weather bearable.

    I had BOTH roller-coaster fun and tell-about-it fun!

    For anyone reading this that did not attend: You missed out!

    The weather didn't make it easy. We had a lot of rain. But we did get to practice fire-building under demanding conditions.
    Everyone helped with the fire-prep.

    We tested some new gear like this rocket stove. And had some great times swapping stories.

    Got some exercise. Here's @redneckron showing us how it's really done.

    Saw some gorgeous country.

    And made some good friends.

    How can you beat that?

    Sorry I did not attend, just too much work around the house and this bad knee is slowing me down in a big way. After an event like this, the first thing to do is start planning the next event! That looks like a great place unless you want to move to a more southern location like around Socorro. A February or March camping trip at mount Withington would be neat!

    We have already begun discussing the next event. I think everyone who attended liked the area we were in. But we can certainly entertain other ideas as well. One thought we had was to make it more family friendly. We discussed having in early enough in the year to avoid fire season but late enough to avoid late snow. The proposal is something like mid-late May.

    We will probably try to organize some kind of local get together (beer and sandwich at a local pub? Or a sit-around-the-firepit at someone's house) before then.

    I am glad you all had a great time. I had really thought about attending but life has been throwing me some big ugly crap lately. There is just no way I could have pulled it off. Hopefully I can make it to another one in the future.

    That looks like a nice place, just a lot of bad company! LOL. I want to make it down there to one of your meetups when my back is healed, it's not too far for me to go and looks like beautiful country.

    That's funny, I look like I know what I'm talking about ;).

    @Crazysanman you make it down to the Silverton area often it seems. If you can make it down to Durango, I'll shuttle ya the rest of the way.:)

    @NM_chile, my hat was really drooping after 4 days of rain...I look like Jed Clampett.

    Oh, and why am I standing in the fire while cooking squirrels?

    @WhisperInThePine, If you didn't, you sure had me fooled.
    For those who weren't there, he gave a fantastic Tree/Plant walk at the end of the weekend. I learned a ton.

    Looks like a good time in spite of the rain. Reminds me of being in Boy Scouts in the Pacific Northwest. Always wet!
