    Any one interested in a weekend camping trip. Some time in May or June. I was thinking Wildcat Hollow. North of Burr Oak Lake.

    Anyone think of any kind of friendly contest we can have? Or a bushcraft item we can bring parts for to build. If someone would to donate something for a award I can help cover some of the cost.

    I know this is no help to anyone, but I'll put myself down as a "maybe". Any specific dates settled on yet?

    Count me in, and my wife as a "maybe". My weekends should all be good from now through June. I'd be able to drive out Friday evening or Saturday morning from Dayton. I can bring a Mora as a small prize item...? Also interested in any kind of trade blanket on sat/sun...

    For anyone interested, I'm also planning to backpack Red River Gorge next weekend (4/22 overnight) so hit me up if heading that way. Planning at least one more trip there this summer too - when all those wild blueberries start ripening. :)

    I could be in. Is this a family friendly camp? I might want to take my 12 and 13 year old.

    I could make it on May 27 weekend. Between the kid's sports and my wife's 5k races I barely get a Saturday all year. You know what will happen though.....come the week before, 5 discs in my back will decide to herniate or I'll get hit with the plague or typhus or something stupid.

    Anyway, don't schedule around me but that would be the time I could make it.

    Weekend of 5/27 then? Works for me (probably).
    Most other weekends before 7/1 are good too.
    I'm all for family-friendly.
    What part of WNF are we planning to occupy?

    Ok guys May 27th it is for sure, I was thinking wild cat hollow, I know from the parking lot if you take the right hand trail there are camp sites along through there and if I remember correctly there is a site that is pretty good size about .25 miles in on the right. If any one knows of a better place or has more information about this one.

    I don't think there should be any issues with bringing in family, I think we can all be responsible adults. I might have a flask with me, lets just all agree if you want to do anything that might be questionable we just hike away's from the kids. The lake is not to far from there you can easily drive down from the trial and fish, there is a store there you can get the basic snacks bait and pop or soda depending on where your from sense it is memorial day weekend I would try and come early just to make sure can get a spot, I ma going do Friday if anyone else want to come doe then.

    I had to commit to a work trip today - I'll be in Texas for a week starting 5/27. I can meet up almost any *other* weekend before July 1, but y'all should go with whatever date gets a consensus...

    Ok so because of the Holiday, we are changing the trip to the 19th of May. Hopefully that works for everyone. If your going to make for sure let me know so I can figure out hat and how much I need to bring for Dinner on Saturday night. If you have any allergies to food let me know that as well.

    Can't wait.
