plan to just be out and about no special plans for us just living life so if we know far enough in advance to have driving time...we will definitely make it priority to attend!
any new ideas and recommendations are always wanted!

Well, I'm a little skeptical about my drivetrain so I'll say 300mile radius from St Louis anytime schools out for summer.

Oh wait, there's a Midwest Meet the weekend of June 24th at Big River State Forest R.R.I, Box 118 Keithsburg, Ill. 61442 (309)374-2496 hosted by:


The more I do, the more I find needs done.

danfox lives in DC most of the time; hangs out in New England a weekend every now and then, and whenever he can scrape up a week's vacay. But he ain't got no bus yet.

I'm up for anything within 8 hours of Houston. Just not in August. I have a teaching gig that will take up the whole month.

Funny, I was just thinking about researching campgrounds around my area (Tidewater, VA) but the Blueridge is an AWESOME place to camp. While I don;t have my skoolie yet I do make an annual motorcycle trip the length of the Blueridge Parkway in VA and NC. I would move to the area in a heartbeat if I was financially able. The state parks in VA and NC are great for hammock camping too, although due to budget cuts some of the campgrounds are closed along the Parkway. Hold an East Coast event and I'm riding my cycle there!

I would hope that most people that show would be starting out, or thinking about it. Spending a day with the pro's would be a HUGE start, and give you more confidence and ideas than you could imagine. I would be OK with it if 50 people showed up with tents, and got to talk with 3-4 people that know what they are doing, or at least have "faked it" like I have

I work in nuclear power so winter or summer is best for me.

Live in the Phoenix Valley but I drive all the way to NH for work, so I don't care where it is, however,

I don't do snow, or mosquitoes!! I think a minimum of 5 days planned would be good. Most people won't travel a big distance for just a 3 day weekend. It takes me 2 days to get to Chattanooga from PHX.

(there kinda is one already)

I thought Bansil had some acreage in TN.......?? If you can host bub, I won't leave any beer cans around and Im good for at least 4 bottles of wine admission fee!!!
