    Well, I think until there is more detailed information on if this is a hike/hang or car camping/hang with hiking being optional things will work itself out. Some of us are looking for an organized hang and some what close to parking and I think Lisa's idea of a Hog Roast is a wonderful gesture, and then everyone doing something to help out and chip in for the hog. But if this is more of a hike in and hang; then we obviously scratch the hog roast/group meal. This will also sort out who will attend and who won't. I'm taking it that this is a definite hike in and hang?

    OK here we go.....

    Details,

    As of now it appears the Ruins are the place for the hang....super easy to get to and about 90% flat land to walk. From the parking area to the Ruins is approx. 1.25 miles give or take the exact area we decide to hang. 95% of this walk is trail. 5% is bush whacking meaning depends where we hang....( tons of great places ).

    Here is the GPS Locale to the parking area "Hickory Ridge Lookout" lat=39.034815, lon=-86.321273

    And to the Ruins

    "Ruins" lat=39.0498295801, lon=-86.3362226307

    From Bloomington Indiana take 46 East to 446 South....Follow about 15 ( or so ) miles to the Charles Deam Wilderness road ( large white sign. on the East side of the road. )
    follow the CDW road about 6 miles to the Terrell Ridge Fire Tower. Park there....To the North of the parking area you will find the trail head. Follow it to the Cematary. ( about 1 mile or so ) AT THE CEMETARY......Go West on the TOP of the ridge....follow it about 1/4 mile ( or so ) there you will find fellow hangers.....My plan ( subject to change without notice ) is to be there Thursday afternoon / evening.

    LEt me know if i can help out more......As far as food....it has always ( well last year anyway ) been a "feed yourself" venue....I'm not opposed to a hog if someone wants to carry the thing.....but thats a fur piece to pack a hunka pork......totally up to you....

    I'll bring a bottle or 2 of wine.....and a camera.....Gotta love the ground dwellers.......LOL

    How much hog are we talking here?

    According to this site a 75lbs dressed pig will yield 30lbs cooked meat and serve roughly 20 people.

    Honestly, I've never been to a hog roast. I know, I know; what red-blooded Hoosier boy has never been to a hog roast? This one, right here! So, that's my motivation to see it through. I promise if Lisa brings a hog (75lbs or less) I will get it back to the campsite; but don't expect me to cook it.

    Jerry,

    Will charcoal work? I think that would be more efficient than wood. What 2-3,4 bags?

    IDK about the spit, someone's gotta come thru on that one.

    If you use mesquite lump charcoal it burns real slow yet hot. We can carry the hog in using a small transport cot putting it on two peoples shoulders.(I'll rig one up) I'll also bring in couple big bag of mesquite lump and we can supplement that with reg wood I have lots of maple, which is good for cooking or we just use deadfall. Let me see what I can do about a spit rod will find out more about that tomorrow.

    If you all decide on us getting a pig ( sounds smaller and less daunting when you say pig) let me know within a week so I can arrange it. My husband and I are looking forward to meeting everyone!
