    Poll: January Campout Dates

    Per Smee's suggestion I am starting a poll on campout dates. Please check all of the following dates that you CAN make it. We will select the weekend where the most people can make it.

    6-7 Jan
    13, 14, 15 Jan
    20-21 Jan
    27-28 Jan

    It looks like the location is Mt Rogers for a hike in. It won out in the poll. As far as the location this is as far as I am good for planning. I have not been there and am not familar with the area. Can someone who has been there suggest good hikes?

    With my job I can make any of these weekends a long weekend if someone wants to add a day. On another side note. I only live a couple hours drive to RRG. If someone wants to go out during the week for a couple days let me know.
    Is that too much to ask? Girls with frikkin' lasers on their heads?

    Come on, you didn't even vote in the poll. I'll pencil you in as an absentee ballet.

    I think I mentioned this before, but there's a nice, scenic hike in to Wise Shelter from Grayson Highlands SP. Not too far, shelter close by to bail to if necessary, good water availability, and PLENTY of places to hang.

    I will be at Wise Shelter Thursday night, then over by Scales Friday and by Rhodo Gap Sat. I did a day hike from Grayson to Thomas Knob shelter a month ago. See why I am not interested in going back in Jan.

    Ahh...gotcha

    Although...I can't imagine ever getting tired of that area. It's one of the most beautiful I've seen.
