    RRG hangout plans.

    Just giving some thought to a hang out at the Red River Gorge this fall. Hammock Engineer & I found a nice place not far from Gray’s Arch on the Gray's Arch Trail. It’s also not far from many side trails, rock houses, arches & views. Only about 3/4 miles from the trailhead on an easy grade. This area is not generally used as a campsite, although there is a small used area sort of attached / nearby. I will admit that there is no nearby H2O, but it would be an easy carry in of extra water. There should be enough room for 20 to 50 hangers, as there are a lot of 4” to 8” trees and there is room (flat spots) for quite a few groundlings.
    I’m thinking of November 23, 24, 25.
    Cookout Sat the 24th, I’ll bring:
    Hotdogs & buns.
    At least one 10’ X 10’ picnic shelter.
    3 gallons of H2O (I have a heavy duty wagon)
    If enough response here, I think we should invite those from white blaze too.

    You're on, Doctari! Count me in, but I hope to make a trip or 2 to the Gorge before then. I've been here in KY for 10 yrs now and never been. I think HC is planning an overnighter this weekend, but it's my first night back from vacation so I can't get out of work to go. Anyway, I'd love to attend the November RRG Hangout.

    Hopefully I will not be able to make it. But someone has to get a pic of Doctari pulling a radio flyer full of water for me.
    Is that too much to ask? Girls with frikkin' lasers on their heads?

    I won't be able to make it, due to some obscure holiday called "Thanksgiving". My family expects me to take them to a relative's house for a large lunch/dinner on the 22nd before that weekend, and then meet and commune with lots of other relatives...

    I'd love to hang out with you folks at RRG sometime though.

    On second thought Thanksgiving weekend may be a little hard to do. Like NCPatrick I will be at various family dinners and gatherings.

    You think maybe it would be better either the week before or after the Thanksgiving holiday. May get a better turn out.

    I can't say the date, but I would like to do one after I get back before I move to where ever I am going to move to. I'm thinking late December or Early Janurary-ish.

    AARRGG!

    The calander I used on MS Works dosn't (automaticly) have the holidays on it, so I totally forgot. My reason for choosing that weekend was that I'm off Thursday thru Monday. OK, How about the weekend before, I work Sunday that weekend, but I should be able to get off 1/2 day, even if the boss has to cover me. If Mt Rogers was any indication, everyone will start breaking up by noon Sunday anyway, so I can be to work easily by 5 PM then.

    So who's up for the 16th 17th & 18th of November?

    Sorry!
