Any chance that someone can make a decision? If there is any interest to move it to Indiana than the Badlands has their customer appreciation day on the 8th. It is always a fun weekend!
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do.
So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.

Who wants to adjust our plans and head North a bit?

Hehe - that is about an hour from my house...

I have heard great things, but have not been out there yet. Unfortunately, I will be on a different camping trip that weekend...

I can't now, I made other plans and will not have to TB trail ready before January. Too much $$ going out with my new camper. Traded in my teardrop for this.

We need to do something. I'm down for whenever. What about a trip to moab, or a multistate trip through the Appalachians?

If you really want to drive, head over to URE for the Appalachian rendezvous the last weekend in sept and camp the week and hit ExPo east at the Biltmore, I'll be at the rendezvous but only camping and paddling, might ride up to ExPo east and hang with some friends.

Man - these weekends are falling through for me. I was hoping Rory would be able to lead something. I now have a wedding I have to go to on the weekend of the 22nd. So that's also out for me. Leaving only possibly the 28-30th and beyond.

I am not going to the expo now, a few people from work asked about meadow knob, may just go
Up there and camp out that weekend. (7--9) anyone else is welcome to meet up if your local or whatever.
