    Right...the dates are 12-7 thru 12-9. Weasel and I will probably spend Friday and Saturday night out there, coming home sometime on Sunday.

    This is pretty much a car camping run, since last time we all met and camped by the trailhead just a few hundred yards from the parking lot.

    Thinking about bringing the dutch oven out to try to do up some cobbler...my wife is even talking about maybe tent camping with us out there (we don't have anywhere near sufficient under-insulation for her hammock for this run yet).

    Assuming nothing comes up, yes. Weasel is between jobs at the moment (poor guy), so if he gets a job between now and then and isn't able to get that time off we'll have to see what happens.

    But we definitely need some time out...haven't had as much this year with the goofy hot summer.

    Definitely getting closer now!

    My wife and I were out there last week. Got too cold for her, and we called it about 9pm. There was no way she was going to be warm enough in her hammock or her tent. (Been trying to get her better gear, but it's not been going as quick as I'd like).

    The site is looking very nice...and I'm definitely looking forward to our hang out there in another month or so.

    Vik-PM me again with the info on your "pre-hang"? Wes and I might make it out there.

    Nov 9-11 "practice run" is 20 miles North of Topeka.
    For anyone interested, PM or email me for directions.
    so far it looks like there will be about a dozen of us, I'll be making venison goulash Friday evening for dinner and a buddy is showing up with some smoked pork and smoked brisket for Saturday.
    Owl - check your PMs for directions.

    I've had 2QZQ mod my tarp so that I've got doors on the ends with velcro to close them off if we see winds like we did last year.

    Also thinking about bringing/using my military ICW bag out there this year since it's car camping...more roomy/comfy than my smaller 20deg bag.

    Looking forward to this hang!
    I'm bringing a new JRB BMBH UL. I've tested it and it is good sleeping.

    I've got to clear these dates. Will advise. Thanks
