    Any trips planned this weekend?

    With all of this extremely technical talk going on in the forums these days, has anyone got any plans to actually get outside this weekend?

    I was thinking of going to Pocahontas State Park for an over nighter. I got my new under quilt in. It has been getting into the low sixties, so I figured I would give it a try. But I have not made up my mind just yet.

    Sounds great. I'm headed outside to the backyard myself. The mosquitos are really bad here lately though. A good test for my bug bivvy .

    What kind of underquilt did you end up with?

    Not this weekend, but in 2 weeks I'm off with about 200 beavers, cubs, scouts, and venturers to our group's fall camp at Legewade. Should be a good chance to try out my new JRB nest, which I'm hoping arrives in the mail soon.

    Better watch out if you're mixing beavers with venturers...

    Where is Legewade?

    Tsk, tsk! Now don't make me have to write up an incident report.
    FYI, the Scouts Canada program is co-ed.

    Legewade is a scout camp here, about 45 minutes northwest of my home. Algonquin Park is another couple of hours up the road.

    I got a 2nds Stealth. I wouldn't have probably even noticed if they hadn't told me what was wrong.

    Wow, thanks for the map. That helps a lot. Interesting about the scouts there too. My oldest daughter is in Girl Scouts here (not co-ed).

    Sounds like a fun trip.

    Gotta love the stealth. I've really enjoyed mine. How much was it, if you don't mind me asking? (You can PM me, if that helps). Looking to make or buy one for my daughter for next month.
