Hi Everyone, I had been teasing @Rik Peery about this "event" in other threads --- it's time to invite everyone. Every year the members of the SouthEast Expedition Society have a winter bash called Country Fried Weekend. We held it in the woods the first few years but attendance got too large and we moved to a campground, then to a friend's property in the north Georgia mountains. Jay has 445 beautiful acres, three mountains with a long T-shaped valley, a lake, several streams. It's stunning. Earlybirds who arrive on Thursday spend the afternoon shooting on his gun range in front of his house. One target is 535 yards away, mountain top to mountain top, so bring your long gun too. This is usually the only time we shoot unless the weather is bad on Thursday. We adapt... More people roll in on Friday and we start eating, telling lies by the fire, some go 4-wheeling, hiking. Whatever. Potlucking starts. Is constant. Food food food. Saturday more of the same. But the big potluck is Saturday around 5:00 We pay Jay for the use of the property --- not much usually. When he lets me know the fee I'll post it here. He has a few (5, I think) electric hookups. A couple of portopotties, one unisex bath-house with potty and shower. He's also got The Stone Mill which has two potties and a shower and usually leaves it open for us unless the pipes are frozen... If you feel like coming, zip me a private message and I'll send you directions to his place. Here are a few youtubes of previous years. Weather can be anything from 8 degrees and windy, 40 degrees and rainy, to 72 degrees and sunny.
