    Now that you guys have settled everything, I'm in for early Nov. 5th arrival.

    I missed my first opportunity at a gathering, I've cleared my schedule for this one.

    I've been so freaking busy it's not funny. I am going to start making it a point to actually enjoy life instead of just working til I croak.

    Some of you skinny boys are in for a real treat!!!
    On second thought, I don't think the underware swap is a good "fit" for me, I'll set that out.
    Donk.

    Thanks for the link, I have never been to that area and that will help tremendously.

    I'm getting stoked about this.

    Yep, there's usually a swap time. Everybody brings ouy their goods and looks at what's available, then the swappin begins! It's a lot of fun. I'm bringing a bunch of stuff myself. I'd like to go home with a canvas pack if there's on up for trade.

    Oh yeah, to help you plan your grub for the weekend, Panzer and I are fixing breakfast for you on Saturday, Mountain Man Breakfaast and oatmeal variety pack. Saturday supper we're fixing a pot of chili and scoops to add to whatever you're fixing.

    Thanks for the guys who volunteered to help with groceries, but we got it.

    No different place you are miles to far west. This is in Wayne National Forest.

    Post on page 5 of this thread:

    Getting there: From State Route 13 heading north, 4.5 miles north of Glouster, or 3.5 miles south of Corning, turn right (east) onto Irish Ridge Road (County Road 16). In 0.1 mile, Irish Ridge Road will make a sharp left, continue to follow it for another 1.8 miles and turn right onto Dew Road (County Road 69). After turning onto Dew Road, the distance to the trailhead is 1.6 miles. Halfway to the trailhead, Dew Road will turn into Sunday Creek Road at the Morgan County line. Unless vandalized, signs will guide you to the trailhead from SR 13.

    Trailhead coordinates: 39.5719°N, 82.0330°W (WGS84); UTM 17 411259E 4380538N (NAD27); UTM 17 411273E 4380755N (NAD83)

    Nearest town: Corning or Glouster

    Okay I think I'm gonna try and go to this one. I have the weekend off but I don't get off work until 5:30 am Saturday morning. So I might not leave the house until 7 am, so unless I get lost I'll be there between 8 am to 9 am. I'm kinda nervous about this as I've never been camping with other people before. I tend to snore, REALLY loud, or so I've been told so I'm sorry if I wake someone. I'll be the fat guy with marpat bottoms and a large alice pack. How will I find the camp when I get there, I mean are you going to be close to the trail? I'm really a big noob. Should I bring anything extra like food for others?

    Just look for the camp with a bunch of axes on display.

    Don't worry man, everyone was a noob at some point, and I snore as well. So don't worry about that.

    Am I aloud to open carry my .22mag revolver on NF land? I was looking at their website but only thing it said about firearms was about hunting and no target practice.

    It is, however, illegal to open carry inside a vehicle without a concealed carry permit.

    does anybody know where the exact campsite we will be camping at. since i dont live far from wildcat i went there over the weekend to do some hiking and scout the area out. when i got to the parking lot there were people group camping right at the trail head in the parking lot. i did hike about a mile of the trail and there were several campsites along the trail ranging anywhere from a few hundred yards to a mile back from the parking lot. there was nobody camping at these sites.

    also the first 100 yards of the trail is extremely muddy, and there are a few creek crossings along the trail so just a heads up on that. i did hike the first mile of the trail and it was all flat btw.

    and the directions to get here were easy, as soon as you turn right onto county rd 16 there will be brown wildcat hollow trail signs at every turn that will take you all the way to the parking lot, so it was very easy to get here.

    The initial plan is to have some folks at that group campsite off the parking lot. That will be the communal area. Once it's filled folks will have to go up trail a little bit to set-up or they can go into the woods or up the hills for unimproved camping. Suspect Device and I are discussing this now. Thanks for the scouting report!

    What does the firewood situation look like in that area?
    Lots of guys + cold weather= big fire.

    Map of the lower trail for Wildcat Hollow. There is a cluster of camps at the trail head. After that you have to hike back to find a designated campsite.

    Sons of Scotland can you comment on fire wood? I have never had a problem finding it there even in the lower areas.

    honestly i wish i would have paid more attention to the firewood situation, when i was there i was more interested on finding the areas where we might be camping.

    what i will do is thursday, i will take another drive to wildcat and really go over the area good and thursday evening i will reply back on this post and let you know what the firewood situation is.

    there is one restroom at the parking lot but there are no picnic tables, do you want us to bring some folding tables with us and maybe some extra tarps to put are trade goods on.

    i just took another trip to wildcat to give you guys a firewood report. there is no easy firewood around the campsite, the firewood that is laying around is mostly rotted stuff.

    there are two hollows on each side of the camping area that has a few nice downed trees, they are both around 100 yards from the campsite. thats going to be the best bet for firewood.

    to the group that is coming down thursday, if you are going to get the after dark i would highly recommend bringing your own firewood for the first night.

    as far as camping goes, there is lots of a room for everbody, at the parking lot group area, and there are some nice secluded camping spots in the woods close to the group area.

    i did take some pics of the group area and of the downed trees.

    and for directions one more time. off 33 in nelsonville turn left onto st rt 78 follow signs to burr oak and glouster. 78 dead ends in glouster. make a left and go through glouster. just outside the town of glouster 78 veers of to the right, STAY LEFT ON 13. after a few miles you will go across a set of railroad tracks once you go through that the first right will be tom jenkins dam then the 2nd right will be burr oak camping area and the third right will be irish ridge make a right there, go 200 feet then make a left staying on irish ridge at that turn you will see the brown wildcat hollow signs just follow the signs to the campground, it will be on the left hand side of the road.
