    MN-Rum River State Forest- April 19-20-21

    Hi all looks like there is enough interest to confirm this weekend, looking at the maps there is 1 or 2 spots I think would work. Both are in the south section one is on east side on what the map calls Apple st and 205 ave(the big 'P' on the map, the other is buy the walking trail closer to the west side(as shown on state map).rum state forest

    I'm going to plan to be up there Friday evening, leaving from st. Cloud.

    All are welcome, one nite, both, or just for the day, tenters too, I might even bring one, I also am inviting a new never in a hammock hanger.

    It(I) might not be the prettiest thing, however It(I'm) is quite functional.

    SON: Dad why do I have to make my bed? It is just going to get messed up again.

    I'm in. Coming from Crystal, MN. Might be able to bring a friend who has only had one night in his hammock. To be fair, I've only had maybe a week or two in mine. Looking forward to adding another weekend's worth of nights to the tally.

    I put this event on the calendar. I put a start time of 15:00 on April 19, and an end time of 20:00 on April 21. Obviously you can come earlier and stay later, but I just wanted to give everyone an idea of when people are planning to be there.

    I take it that we will not be using camp sites. On the DNR site it said you can disperse and camp wherever you would like in the forest. Does anyone know what that means for regulations on fire. I know we need to practice "Leave No Trace" but I'm not sure how that relates to campfires or personal wood burning stoves.

    I think we would be ok with the fire issues, as they say that scavenging for wood is ok, as long as we LNT. There are no campsites so we would have to figure out a fire ring/area.

    I'll put this on my calendar as it's not too far of a drive. Sounds like fun.
