It’s hot. In November it’s not…
Let's get a Fall Group Hang planned!
So, let the tradition continue in 2012 with the 4th Annual Texas Fall Group Hang the second weekend in November, (11/9-11) at Fairfield Lake State Park. It’s a great time to renew friendships, make new ones, and play with gear so mark it on the calendar.
In the past, the fun has included car camping for those who like to bring everything; (the location has showers and porcelain facilities for those who won’t leave home without them); day hikes for those inclined; lake paddling, fishing; pot luck dinners; Dutch oven cooking; DIY play time; lots of show and tell along with a little gear trading; group buys; stove tests; drawings for prizes, and some wonderful campfire fellowship.
For now, save the date and post your ideas, comments, and suggestions. Inspired by other event planners, here is my first google docs attempt; a participant list to track interest and ideas. By posting to it we can keep a running list of folks and stuff past the date that this post can be edited. Please add or update yourself on it.
