    Missouri/Columbia Area/October-ish Hang?

    So, I've been doing the KC area hangs for a while now. The local crew is 'da bomb'. We've had a lot of fun getting together.

    However, in the intersts of trying to meet up with some new folks, I've been giving some thought to trying to organize a hang in the Columbia, MO area. I'll be going to my brother's this weekend, and will talk to him about the possibility of getting a permit to use an area dedicated to group camping about 12 miles north of Columbia. I'm not 100% sure yet that we can hang at the spot I'm considering just yet, but it's possible.

    Was thinking that we'd shoot for mid-late October. The area I'm looking at doesn't have much in the way of real trails, although depending on weather/water levels, I've walked quite a bit of the creek beds there looking for fossils/arrow heads.

    I like the idea of trying this out since it'll put us right smack between KC and St Louis...I've met a couple of the St Louis area folks once or twice, and Skygzr has been a constant attendee at our KC area hangs. Thinking it might be a good compromise to get a decent sized group of folks together.

    Interest?

    Re: Missouri/Columbia Area/October-ish Hang?

    I've got family in Columbia that I need to visit. If I can arrange a trip at this time, I would love to attend. I will have to keep an eye on this thread and watch for dates.

    it's a possibility for me as well -- depending on when my next trip to Tn happens. I met up with some of the BCUSA guys SW of columbia a few months back at Jamestown and that was pretty country down in the river bottoms.

    Starting a job tomorrow, so my attendance depends on the new work schedule, well, and the kid schedule too. But it would sure be nice to finally meet some fellow members!

    Well, my first choice for places to hang in the Columbia area just won't be possible.

    One possible solution might be to reach out the local state parks there...my brother lives pretty close to Finger Lakes State Park, and I can find out if they have primitive camping there.

    Is there anyone interested who actually lives in/near Columbia? I'm in the Kansas City area, so making a trip out to recon areas is a little problematical.
