    I have a 4x8 box-trailer we can haul wood and kayaks/canoes in.
    not sure how much wood you can fit into your VW Beetle with a man of you stature....

    I've been creeping this thread since it was first posted and I guess it's time for me to commit. Or be committed or something. I'm a life long camper but always a ground dweller. I caught the hammock bug recently but still have to make or buy one, I can adapt everything else from stuff I already have.

    I own a coffee roasting business so I can supply enough fresh roasted coffee for everyone for the weekend. I only have equipment for brewing 2 cups at a time but I see a few posts about coffee pots so we should be good.

    It's about a 5 hour drive for me so hopefully there will be another Canadian or 2 going and we can put together a carpool.

    I'm looking forward to meeting everyone and checking out the different hammock setups.

    My only attempt at cowboy coffee resulted in a mouthful of grounds, I bow to others expertise.

    Looks like this is shaping up to be a fine event. Gargoyle, Missy Lou and I walked the site this past weekend. Right now looks like we will be on sites 3 & 4 of the group camping loop. This is the northern most loop and we will get some signs made up for you to follow. Gargoyle is finalizing details with DNR and he will post once he has more information.

    Don't forget to bring your bowl and spoon for the CHILI!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Happy Hangin'
