    Options For RRG Thanksgiving Hang

    I have been talking with Doctari about this hang, and to get a heads up about what most would want to get out of this hang here is a poll.

    Please vote for what you would like to see or take part in if you plan on attending the Red River Gorge Thanksgiving Hang in Easter KY.

    Thank you before hand.

    Doesn't look like anyone is too keen on changing camp much lol!

    How many pairs of underwear do you own? Do you refer to them as "extras", simply because you're not wearing all of them as we speak?

    I kind of like just hiking in and being lazy. But like to have the option of a dayhike if I want to do it.

    Same here. I like a base camp where I can leave my stuff up the whole time I'll be out. It gives me the option of being lazy and just enjoying the outdoors or going on a hike to see the scenery. Either way is a win in my book.

    A few thoughts:

    One... Would you feel comfortable leaving your gear at a base camp? Would someone be available to stay at camp?

    Two... There are many places to see in the RRG, if we camp near the parking lot many could drive to other places to day hike.

    Three... Most have voted for a central fire, Would this be easier to bring or find wood. I know that a lot of areas around campsites in the RRG have been stripped.

    That is all for right now...

    So it'd be the Friday, Saturday, and Sunday after Thanksgiving? Maybe there's another thread on this...

    I probably read it and commented on it too!
