    We have a lot more activity on our Facebook page. We should try to compile a list of people from both so we’re all on the same page...

    About a week away. Its looking to be about 9 of us total, 6 from here.

    As of today, there are no fire restrictions so don't forget your fire permits if you plan on having your own campfire going. Don't bring wood but rather use downed trees.

    ..... I might have to sneak out of work a day earlier just to get an early start.

    Thank you for sharing the pictures with us, they look great.

    Looks like you guys had a good group, and some very good weather..

    That would be my kind of camping... great family fun in the wilderness..!!!
