We've had a few last minute requests to join - and that's fine, but we've pretty much come to the end of our ability to absorb more without getting more sites, etc.
SO ... if you're name isn't listed below, we either have not accounted for you on our current permits, or haven't discussed alternate options with you. Therefore, if you decide you want to come, you'll likely need to just go ahead and and get an open site either from the ranger station or online. Regardless of permits, we're going to start running into lack of trees in the 3 sites we grabbed regardless, so another site wouldn't hurt anyway.
NJRedneck and Sons
Black Foot (Sat only)
Tinker (Sat only)
Kayak Karl (possible Friday Only)
Other's we've talked with:
jtdad17 - likely getting his own site, since friend may join.
Ratdog - if he comes, he'll grab a site
Deadphans - no idea if he's actually coming, but he's covered if he does
camp43 - not sure his plans, but covered
Anyone else I'm missing?
DISCLAIMER: If I didn't mention you above, you are still more than welcome to join us. We'll be at Mullica River Camp from Friday to Sunday. You'll just need to make your own arrangements, or PM me or SilvrSurfr directly, and we might be able to help out.
Happy Thanksgiving, and see everyone tomorrow!
What time is everyone planning on heading into the woods. Me and my boys will be leaving Batsto around 11 or so. That puts us in camp around 1.
I will grab site 9 tomorrow.
I will put in for 4 people for Fri/Sat.
If by some chance 9 is taken, I will grab 10.
There are plenty of trees for hanging, just maybe not exactly within a given site location.
Not a big deal because most of the sites are rated for 6-8 people.
My plans were changed a little last night, my brother in law sprained his ankle and may not hike in. As a result, my nephew may not make it, or he might just paddle in with me.
Good news is, if brother in law bails, he might still be available to shuttle us to and from the PicALilli Inn.

Shorten the hike to 2.5 miles each way if we hike towards Atsion.
How close can you get with a car, and be able to leave it? Just got a call from jerzybears asking and I don't have a good answer ...
From Batsto, it is 5-6 miles. (leaving car at Batsto) car should be ok.
From Atsion, 5 miles (leaving car at Atsion, no Rangers around) maybe not the safest option
From Atsion 2.5 miles (leaving car just off of QuakerBridge Road in the middle of the woods) probably not the safest option
From Atsion with Disabled Persons .7 miles (leaving car deep in the woods) chances are it will be left alone, possible ticket
If shuttle is needed, let me know when and where to see if I can help.
I have to run to Batsto to get permit but will be coming in from Atsion.
Have a couple relatives that live nearby, might be able to arrange shuttle from safe parking area to 2.5 mile drop off or .7 mile drop off.
My sister lives in Vincentown, could leave a car at her place and be shuttled to Atsion (5 mile hike) or QuakerBridge Road (2.5 mile hike)
Greensoldier PM'd me and would like to come Friday night.
Picallili Inn. Isn't that where we stopped for a beer last time with Rocco, Silent Orpheus? They sure have plenty of TVs for watching Auburn-Alabama, but the beer selection is not the best. I like that it's only 2.5 miles away!
