2014 Kick Off Campout 4/25-27, 2014

Post  chuck on Sat Feb 22, 2014 2:46 pm

VOLUNTEER CAMPERS 2014 KICK OFF CAMPOUT
Natural Tunnel State Park
1420 Natural Tunnel Pkwy., Duffield, VA

APRIL 25 - 27, 2014 (some campers may arrive earlier in the week)

NOTICE:  I am sorry for any inconvenience this change will cause.. but PANTHER CREEK STATE PARK is not available for this event.  I am sure the change in location will cause problems for some and longer driving distances, etc..  but I think the new adventure.. in a new place (for many of us) will be worth the sacrifice. I promise.. for those in the Knoxville area..  our fall event will be closer to home.  Most likely,, Cove Lake State Park.

here's some general information on Natural Tunnel State Park:
http://www.dcr.virginia.gov/state-parks/natural-tunnel.shtml

For Reservations CLICK HERE

Although reservations are not site specific.. You should choose the LOVERS LEAP campground.. if you want to be near other members of our group.

GROUP MEAL SATURDAY NIGHT .. merrykalia and ButchH (Donna and Butch) will coordinate the group meal.  More information will be posted later.

PLEASE RESERVE SOON..  sites will go fast for this spring weekend.

Please.. copy and paste this message.. then add your name to the list.. indicating that you are planning to attend the Kick Off Camp Out.

THIS IS NOT A RESERVATION and if you need to cancel later.. no problem. We are just trying to get an idea.

1. Chuck (coming in Thursday 4/24/14) (camp site reserved)

jb, do you plan to attend the camping trip? Please bring your dutch oven. I think we will probably do several DO recipes. I have one and have a friend that has one, plus yours and Richards and we should be set.

I am getting so excited. This will probably be our first trip of the year, but we may spend a couple of nights in it before then.

Could someone please tell me why panther creek was canceled? Did panther creek confirm they would not be ready for the kick off?

Yes, Panther Creek will not be open until sometime in May. Also, our next pick, which was Davy Crockett, will also not be open until sometime in May. Apparently many of the TN state parks are undergoing renovations this spring.

Therefore, it's Natural Tunnel. Hope you guys can still come.

Last thing Carolyn wants to do on her weekends is spend it driving since she does that for a living, and I am not comfortable driving towing the trailer. If we had three days it would be worth it, but leaving on Saturday morning just cuts the time too short. That is why we mostly local camp on the weekends. Take lots of pics for those of us who cannot attend!!

I have two Dutch ovens, one is a bigger one. I can make the potatoe and bacon thing that everyone seems to like (Dar, I'll make you some without the magic ingredient).

Sorry guys but Brenda and I won't be able to make this one. We had some unexpected family plans come up for that weekend, so we will try and catch you next time.

Have fun and hope to meet and see you all soon!

jb, so glad you guys are going to be able to be there. I know several boys that will be tickled to death to have more boys - with your 2, I believe we might be up to 6 boys under the age of 10. I think we will have 5 girls. WOW! I will make sure we have some activities that they can do.

OldTimer (Gary), sorry you won't be able to join us. We were looking forward to meeting you and Brenda. Maybe we can camp with you later in the year.

I really wish you were able to come, Tim. Why don't you just leave Rita at home and come alone. Would she get too upset? Anyway, we will miss you if you are unable to attend, but you could ride up for a little while on Saturday, just to visit.
