    Default Winter campout(s)

    It's that time of year!!! Time for winter camping!

    For the last few years, we've had an camping event in Abbot around the first of March. Rumor has it, the event will happen again this year.

    Is anyone interested in more camping events?

    Some possibilities inclused: Webb Lake (2mi), Piazza Rock (2mi), Bradbury Mtn (200ft) or Blackwoods (500ft).

    TAT! Wow, my favorite activity? Well, ONE of my favorite activities! Winter camping.... too bad most others DON'T want to be involved in this fun. I'd be interested in this ind of thing. But why wait till March? I have my "winter preparedness" pack in my Jeep which has my MSR stove, MSR water filter, North Face mountain tent, a OR Bivouac, two sleeping bags, fuel, MSR Denali snow shoes, extra clothes, all kinds of junk all set up ready to go. I need a good excuse to put it all to good use this season! I am VERRRYYYYY interested!

    I've never been winter camping, I guess I can give it a try. I prefer a place where I can have my car in close vicinity though

    I'd be up for Bradbury. That way if I can't take it, I can be back home in under 5!

    Default Winter camping?

    Di and I do this every winter. This year we're going to camp iin San Juan mid-March! Anybody want to come along? The "campground" has a nice beach and a pool that has bar stools in the pool so you can swim up the bar if you need one of those fruity drinks with pineapple and umbrellas bristling out the top!
    Sometimes the road less traveled is less traveled for a reason.

    THIS is my kind of winter camping. I'm ready. Unfortunately my wallet isn't.

    I think Heidi and I are going to do this winter camping trip this year as well . . . except it probably will not be San Juan this year and we don't really drink any of those foo-foo drinks.

    Everyone has the right to be an idiot at times. Just don't abuse the privilege.
