I am in Conecuh National Forest almost every weekend. A gathering of hikers
and campers will take place at Open Pond in CNF early October. I will most
likely be "hanging". The event will be the first ever AlaRuck hosted by The
Alabama Hiking Trail Society, www.hikealabama.org
. Everyone is invited and
the only cost is the Forest Service camp fee, $6.00 per tent site. This would be a great to meet some of the folks who share your passion for the outdoors. More information can be found at the above AHTS website.
