    Just signed up to camp February 19 - 20 at the Englewood Metropark in Dayton, South Park section, Prairie View campsite. Arrive at 3pm, leaving by 11am. All are welcome to join! Free! Bring food... everything else can be improvised. (laugh) This is for my birthday and to complete Bushclass Basic.
    "Englewood MetroPark is 1,900 acres of lakes, woods, wetlands and meadows. With its floodplain forests and wetlands, Englewood MetroPark helps to buffer and protect the Stillwater River."
    Englewood - Five Rivers MetroParks
    They have a variety of habitat (prairie, woods, river), clean spring water nearby, and the rangers allow for "very primitive" camping as long as you aren't wantonly destructive. (I believe one is a bushcrafter!). Leaves and grasses for bedding, small trees and branches for shelter, water nearby.
    I attempted a 10 lb. overnight there last January and the location was great for winter camping. Plus you can park near the site for added safety. I want to try out a new-to-me Dutch Oven so a long walk in isn't so desirable.
    My resolution for 2017 was to meet up with other bushcrafter in real life so I would love the company! Please join me.

    Added your event to the Calendar. I'll add an RSVP as well if you would like.

    Don't bother with the RSVP... I like surprises! If anyone shows up I will be thrilled. If nobody shows up I will be thrilled. I'm just happy to get out and camp!

    If I wasn't in the middle of remodeling my house, I would be there in a heartbeat. Have a great birthday!

    I was planning a quick overnight on the opposite side of the state 18-19. so long as I'm not whooped I'll swing by a hang out. Can do any camping:( gotta be back by 4am for my daughter when her mom goes to work. However my daughters off school onthe 20th so maybe we'll swing out for a few on Monday morning

    Last call! The weather looks great and nothing has come up to stop me. I will be at the Prairie View campsite, South Park section of Englewood Metropark, on Sunday Feb. 19 by about 2pm. Leaving Monday Feb. 20 around 11. All are welcome as the site holds up to 20 campers. If I am not around, have a seat, pour some coffee and I will show up soon.
