    January Campout Location Suggestions

    Of those who plan to go to the January campout, what are some possible places? I am not very fimilar with anywhere outside of Ohio. And I am pretty sure that would not be as much fun as the mountains somewhere.

    As people post suggestions I'll update this post to keep a running list. After everyone has a chance to suggest, I'll post a poll and we will go where ever the most people can make it.

    So far I heard suggestions for:

    Red River Gorge, KY
    Mount Rogers
    Pine Grove State Furance.

    I don't hike the At, so I don't really have any input. I would like to see it as far South as possible. I realize you want a "cold" spot, but if its too cold I think some won't come.

    Penn I believe. It is the park right at the mid point of the AT.

    Arkwater, depending on the weather where you are at are you going to try to make it? I'd like to see some of your homemade gear in person.

    Yea, the weather will be a big factor. I'm looking at a minimum of 600 miles to drive. If we hike in most of my pack will be filled with WARM STUFF!!!

    PA is a bit too far for me - almost 8 hours. RRG sounds great but it's even farther. Mt Rogers is about right at 5 hours.

    What about New Years?

    I was wandering what about the New Years Eve trip to Springer. Had a great showing last year. Would be a great opportunity for a larger gathering/ cold gear testing field. I sadly missed most of it (snake bite juice kicked in a bit early, ended up testing my underquilt as a sleeping pad on the ground). It has a good chance of being cold this year. Can't wait to try out my 0* ish system. (under 5 1/2 lbs )
