Added myself and my brother to the list.
Probably arrive, Saturday morning and hike the northern half of the Dutchman's Creek/ Uwharrie segments and get back to Yates that evening. I've done the loop forwards and backwards, I'll be happy to do it with just a day pack load this time .
I did find my gold pan but with average lows in the upper 30's I suspect it will be too cold to play around much with that.
I don't mind donating for firewood. I'll bring the Gransfors Bruks to help process some too.
I MAY be able to bring a large dutch oven. I'm not sure if that's going to help or not if I'm not there till at least 'second breakfast'. If I bring something to cook Sunday morning, will someone have a decent cooler with space to keep it in Saturday night?
I don't trust my small Coleman for more than chilling drinks for an afternoon.
In the mean time, I hope to put together my first HikingDad bridge hammock and use it.
Also HAVE to toss together the Wilderness Chair though the tripod might be a bit big for around the camp fire.
