Yeah, I became friends with her on FB & sent her a link to this planning thread.
Someone asked a question about the type camping to prepare for.
Car camping (as I call it) because your car is near by, so you can bring more stuff than you need:)
Flush toilets & running water...
Glad to see a great week end & turn out!!!
Loved the "WoodLand Buffet" samples! Never seen such art work!. I may use one as my desk top.

Good to have you.
Hope everything goes well for the mother & child. And hope you are able to make it to the Festival hang.
This is true about them wanting snacks. Bad idea to give in to them though. I've seen them bite & kick people for running out of what they were feeding them.
Hickery has a special way with them. We...
Most of them will be rounded up that weekend but I think some of our day hikers have still seen a few up on the AT that managed to escape the round up.
They coral them in an area called Scales &...

Hopefully obxH2O will get his cook pot back & someone will claim the 3 leg, folding camp stool with a camo seat.
Then all will be well in this camp.
Dang Home Run, you ought to be writing music!
And Home Run sings around the camp fire
And old blue smells like a beer
And we sit at the far and put bread in his jar
And say, "Man, what are you...

It is! Hope you'll join us.
Well it will sure be good to see you two again!!!
Others will be glad too.
Will you be bringing your dog? My girls plan to be there.
It is a beautiful place. If I weren't so limited on taking off weekends I would join you.
Thanks RockDawg. I missed that.
Hope you can make it. I'm sure you will enjoy.
Yes, the raffle is very helpful for the donations made to the State Park as well as a couple group needs (like fire wood).
The group site (& surrounding woods) are provided free for our added...
Yeah, but she fought some good battles with the rain & wind. Maybe I'll bring a square & we'll have a ceremony.
Maybe you could light a feather stick under it!!!
Hope you can make it obxh2o, as well as the others that expressed an interest. It will be good to see old friends & make new ones.
BTW, I will have to make a trip to Lows Home Improvement before this event to buy another big tarp.
I believe we first used big blue on the first of these Fall Festival hangs, 5 years ago & have...
A big Thank You to Happy Camper for setting up a great introduction post!!!
Yep, this has become my favorite weekend of the year! Excited to have the planning started, with the help of Rock Dawg,...

The info sheet says you could win a...
CoolDays showed up Sat eve after supper, set up his hammock not far from the pavilion & sat around & talked awhile.
You must have just missed him.
Wow, very nice job on the video presentation Maz!
Thank you & all the others for the vids & pictures.

Love seeing those pictures & vids. I've got 2 or 3 I should have up by tomorrow.
I try to use as few stakes as possible, as long as I can find trees, limbs, roots, etc to tie off to. But that's more of a challenge in those conditions because you want be more specific about angles...
Report thread here...
Just got home. Great hang!! Great people & great food.
When someone gets rested enough, I'm sure they will start to tell about it & post pictures under "Trip Reports".
Dorry to hear that Jim. Hope to meet you guys at another hang.
Yes, Marcia & the rest are the best park Rangers I've ever met!!!
We'll miss you too Scott. I think we could probably go ahead & name a date for next year.
I'll bring plastic forks, spoons & knifes, as well as some extras on the other stuff.
I love it when I hear owls. But when I go to sleep, I usually don't wake wake up.
Hey, are there paper plates, bowls & plastic forks, etc being brought?
I'll look again at the spread sheet & plan...
The Fall Festival has become my favorite group hang for a number of reasons... good friends (new & old), beautiful place, mild weather & of course the festival with all it has to offer....
We'll sure miss you but more sorry to hear about your Moms troubles. Praying that things will go well there.
