Mountain Meet 10': Western NC Meet Oct. 9-10

Guys,

So the OBX meet was a blast! But now its time for a Mountain Meet! The date is set for October 9, 2010 which is a few weeks away. This will be a camping trip in the Wilson Creek Area which is in the Pasgah National Forest near Lenoir, NC. There are TONS of offroad trails (mostly gravel though) that weave through the forest.

ranger_1999 (Dustin McCann) knows the area like the back of his hands, so he will be the one taking us to a camping spot. from my understanding, we will NOT be at a campground. This is camping at its finest..lol.

So the nature of this trip, we would all need to meet at a certain time so that we can all be together and makes things easier.

We are not going to make a list of things to bring to make this complicated. Just bring whatever food you will need personally and whatever camping/fishing supplies you may need also (make sure you have correct licenses). We will be doing some riding/hiking/fishing, so bring whatever equipment you will need!

Making the trip:
  • Scott (dixie_boysles)
  • Dustin (ranger_1999)
  • Trent (04blackedge)
  • Zak (Zak873) MAYBE

So now we need to establish a meeting point and time!

Alright I'll check with her. I need to check with my mom too, she said something about a family dinner for my birthday that weekend but I don't know if anything is set in stone yet. I'll find out today though and report back.

Alright I'll be there, Cort said she would love to go. You guys want me to bring some wings or something? Or everyone could bring their own steaks or something. I'll have my grill with me so I can do whatever you guys want

So any ideas where you guys want to meet? I'm coming from the opposite direction so I might meet you guys at the visitor center or something depending on what part your going.

Hey Dustin I have a Wilson Creek map and GPS now so I can't get lost again haha.

Hickory is kind of an hour out of the way for me and then back to Wilson Creek. Dustin needs to get on so he can tell the route hes going to take and I can meet with you all at the entrance to Wilson Creek or something.

Banner Elk, 181 is closer than 321. What time we're you guys planning on leaving Hickory? I might just head down there and get some new sunglasses from my aunt's store that morning. I thought I remembered Scott saying something about 10, I don't know if that was leaving there or meeting at 18/321 though.

Alright. I'm 90% sure this is around the area we camped, I'm sure its off of that road. I always go in off of that Forest Road right there, take a left and theres a ton of campsites down there.

N 35 55' 47.03" W 81 48' 12.41" - Google Maps

Now we can camp anywhere, there is soooooo many different places to camp. We can just drive around and pick one that looks good. Doesn't matter at all to me
