Hey, just thought I'd pass it on, but if you are into bushcrafting, there are some guys over at bushcraftusa.com forums that are having a get-together/campout at Ledges state park Feb 15-17. Good excuse to get your hammock outside.
Hope this link works. It is a forum thread about the event. I'm very new to the bushcraftusa forum, so I don't vouch for any characters over there. I'm also not able to go to this meeting either. I copied the important information below the link in case you can't access it. I think this might be reserved for members of their forum, and they wanted people to post that they were coming, so if you are thinking about going, just register on their site and let them know you plan on attending within the thread.
Iowa Winter 2012/13 Meet 'N Camp
Ok folks, here is the basic information we need to remember.
Where: Ledges state park, at their primitive sites (link to map and location of park): http://maps.google.com/maps?oe=utf-8...d=0CIEBEPwSMAA
When: Feb. 15, 16, & 17, 2013.
Why: Cuz we want to have a great time!!!!!!
Who's invited?: Everyone! This is not an "Iowa only" gig. It just happens to be taking place in Iowa.
Cost: $6 per site per night. UP to 6 people per site. Translated: For every 6 of us, we need to purchase another site. I don't think it matters if 12 of us stay on one site, as long as we have purchased enough sites to accommodate 2 groups of 6.
Ledges State Park straddles zip codes 50036 and 50156. The link above is for weather in the 50036 area.
