    I got a call from Neo about an hour ago. He went down to Meriwether Lewis this morning and got there around 9:30. He said he setup his, his son's and his gf's tarps and hammocks. After he got through setting up everything he drove into town.

    Neo said when he arrived back at the campgrounds he noticed his tarp was kind of flapping. He said his Claytor Jungle hammock, his Hammock Gear 20 top and bottom quilts were gone. Everything else was still in the other setups. Kind of odd they left the tarp and didn't bother the other 2 setups.
    Luckily he brought another setup as a spare

    This isn't what you want to hear for this area. Neo said he has been camping down there for yrs with no problems. Hamhocker and I have camped down there a few times before and left everything setup with no problems.

    Guess from now on someone may need to be in camp.

    added: Just talked to Neo again. He was talking to the Ranger who has been there for 4 yrs. This is only the 2nd time something like this has happened.

    That just flat out sucks
    Sounds like he may have been coming back in, was heard by who ever took his stuff and they hightailed it before he got close enough to see. Really hate to hear that.

    We'll see who may not want to go to breakfast on Saturday and be more watchful. Bummer for Neo. We all expect better from folks,don't we?

    Neo is using his son's top and bottom quilt tonight since his spare gear was only good to 40. I am taking an extra top and bottom quilt for him to use this weekend.

    lazyboy is down there keeping Neo company

    Suppose to get in the teens Friday and Saturday night but with a wind chill mid to low teens (depending on which site you look at)

    I'm not doing Venison Sloppy Joes. Still haven't decided. May do Venison Chilli or something sweet since there looks like a lot of food.
