    Hello Flash.

    I will start with the bad - 1 vault toilet. That I would say is the worst part. You may need to wait a bit for your turn. For the few years my son and I have attended, everyone seems to have been respectful and keeps the space clean.

    The good - The Camping area is large with lots of trees. You can pick any as close or far from the main fire, cooking area and cars as you care to walk. Great friendly group. There's always bacon.

    The ugly - .... I really can't think of anything... I was going to mention PG's big puffy hats but I am more intrigued and want to know where he gets them.

    What are the sites like... individual firepits and tables?, hanging out in the woods around a central group site?, toilets, etc...?
    I know there's no water.
    What's the hike in distance from the cars...?


    Just need a handle on how to pack up, pack in, and what....

    Fire ring(s) and a few fire places with grates-great 4 coffee and fry pans
    Vault toilet in square building—warning foul odor from vault toilet maybe not noticed during day can stink enough to disturb sleep—if you camp too close to vault toilet that sometimes offgasses during night
    As always fire safety is your responsibility, small campfires at dispersed campsites are legal responsibility of those in that particular campsite.
    No forest fires please!
    Flash there are a few picnic tables but no “sites”,
    mostly woods with good tree spacing.
    Be careful about camping next to Mooseman, since his neck surgery, his titanium implants make a metallic rasping sound when they get too close to his Dutch Bling...
    I learned the lesson abought the bathroom area the hard way when we did our summer hang phantom

    All Y’all, Youse Guys, Yinz, Hammock Creatures!

    My apologies are extended to each one of you for telling a bald faced lie.
    Originally I was just bringing some wings (Wangs)
    and real beef to share for our Saturday Potluck Supper. With a small amount of other stuff.

    My Wang Man said I did not order enough to justify delivery. And on top of that, when I checked on our order, it was not even officially confirmed.
    I have recently done a headcount—it’s between 50 and 60 hammock campers—with maybe 10 campers posting what they were gonna bring...
    I greatly increased order at BBQ Joes our Wang Man similar to size it was in years past.

    If you have already indicated you are bringing a side or drink or dessert or main course Bring It
    If you have not yet stepped up and volunteered,
    There will already be more than enough food for Saturday breakfast and Saturday Potluck Supper starting at 430
    If not already volunteered Don’t, there would be too much food wasted and tossed out with trash

    Unless you are bringing old Phantom some persimmon pudding. How do you make persimmon pudding—nobody knows except first you have to start with a Grandma....

    Ok so what are temps usually like that time of year in NC? Arathelion has volunteered use of a wookie for me since I am having UQ issues, but my wife also has a wbbb, and we are both having the same issue of keeping a UQ on our hammocks. I want to make it down, but I cant freeze her to death. I can gladly bring maybe some paper plates or plastic ware to eat upon, and a few jumbo (body bag sized) trash bags.

    With lows of 20 and rain or snow there can be as few as 20
    You see what I did there...that’s why I was so good at math in school...if I didn’t know the answer to question #five, I’d put down 5....

    It might be either +1 +2 or +3 with me. Not sure yet. Closer to the date when we see the weather it will help the others decide. Heck if nothing else I might hitchhike with Cajun
