I say keep as is, Adam has already took of work for this and I know him and myself would rather be on the trail.

So who's up for camping St night and running Brown mtn on Sun?

Larry have you decided if you were going to camp in the area or just drive up then back? Do you have any suggestions on where to stay?

I know of a place in Boone that's nice and free........and then there's Julian Price Park which is ~$18 a tent. I'll have to let you know once it gets a little close but I would like to camp then run Brown mtn on Sun because I've never been.

By knows a place he means I know a place. tongue Just checking in from TW with Larry.

The established area has about 6 fire rings, not sure how many tents will fit. There is plenty of "parking" for our off-road type vehicles, no corrola's, this place is slightly out there. The part we are working on will hold plenty of cars and tents.

Here's some pictures of mostly the area the campground is in and the views of a few hiking trails nearby also a few of a new part of the campground a friend and I are working on.

and him crawling a little in his Jeep, in the new section.

I need to go out and get more of the campground itself.

Well, unfortunately I will not be able to make it out there for the weekend and i wont be making that trip for a day. I will be going to the OBX on the 4th though. Anyone who cannot make it to the Richland Rd Trail Run should come out.

Man this sounds soooooo good, I just dont know about the drive from Raeford, Friday will be busy at the office given Monday was a holiday...

If I can make it is there a decent (cheap) place to stay Friday night, arriving late? I'd be hitting the road sometime after 6pm and its 3.5 to 4 hrs from here to Lenoir.

I'll look at this real close Tuesday but I really want to be there.

Adam is coming from Greenville, so it's about the same drive for him.

Him and I are camping Fri night at a place in Boone, it's free. I'm also arriving late, probably get there around 9ish.

I'll relay camping info as I hear it..........Tim should be in here in a minute to post some more info on camping.

Yea that's the place. I'll show you whenyou get here Larry. Yea I've been slacking, working third and Packing and cleaning during the day... Coma done! I'll be going out to touch up on the campground this week. It will hold 4-5 tents easy. Plenty of space in no mans land! This place is extremely primitive, no commodities other than a few creeks.

Here is a rough map from Walmart in Boone to the camping area. Once your at 'C' keep an eye out on the left. You can't miss it.

No problem, looking forward to seeing everyone. No pm's yet.. I'm only gonna be available for a few hours Friday, I need to show someone the spot so they can show the rest. I'll be driving down to Sanford for the day, will be back fri night.

Also funny the mobile skin doesn't have anything where I can reply or anything. It's just for viewing ??

Yeah, but I really like the area over by Pisgah, the Black Mountain, Mount Mitchell, so this would be a good excuse to get over that way! Laughing

Yes, It's a fire service road.

We usually make a run once a winter when they get a big snow. Makes things interesting.
