    Following up on Loki's suggestion about arriving early and hanging a big tarp for a gathering spot. The big tarp I loaned out disappeared, But a neighbor gave me one that is HUGE. I will plan to get there around 1 PM on Friday. But I don't have any rope. It will probably take 100 feet to hang this monster, so if someone can show up early with the rope it would be great. It might take three guys to git it strung up. Gunsfan, you will probably come within a mile of my house on your way from Mt. Airy. If you can leave early maybe we can meet and follow one another to Yates Place. PM me and we can discuss. Also wondering if anybody is bringing firewood. I can bring some lump charcoal. I slept out in my hammock last night and it got down to 40 degrees and pretty strong wind. I used 3 pads and was just a little chilly but not cold. I can probably make do with my pads down to low 30's if there isn't any wind. Looking forward to meeting everyone.

    I think I can be there around 1pm to help out. I will bring rope and I have a few tarps I will bring as well. I have some firewood, I can bring but I doubt it will be enough. I will be driving a dark blue 4 door F-250

    Gunsfan, How about 10:30 at the state park entrance? That would give us time to stop for lunch and then get to Yates around 1 PM.

    What's up guys? I just signed up on the spreadsheet.
    I will be there some time Saturday morning with one of my friends.
    Bonepile, what color is the huge tarp?
    I am looking forward to meeting everyone.
    Another few questions I have for the group. Do any of you that are coming have a cuben tarp. And the other one is does anyone have either a Zpacks or ULA backpack?That you would be willing to bring.
    I am looking at buying a cuben tarp and of the packs above in the spring but want to get my paws on them before I shell out that kind of money.
    Thanks,
    Chiefstryker
