    Survival is not about surviving AGAINST the nature. It's about surviving WITH the nature.

    You can't go in to nature, nature is not a place or an object. Nature just is. You are living it.

    We've done Indiana and Tennessee so I'd suggest Ohio, Kentucky, Michigan or Wisconsin. Since we generally seem to have more from the south I'd suggest Kentucky or Southern Ohio but I'm open to any place at all.

    Ooh the Ise of Wight's good. If you can get there in August, it's Cowes week! http://www.redfunnel.co.uk/island-gu...er/cowes-week/ Failing that you'd love the Dragon boat races http://www.anthonynolan.org/What-you...e-Dragons.aspx
    And finally the Pilot gig races.http://www.intocornwall.com/features/gigracing.asp I think there are other events held later on in the year. If you look at the gigs, you'll see the similarity to Ursula.

    That would be utterly too cool! Besides, I've heard that you English can make decent beer there. Might end up being a pleasant trip. Although prolly I won't get there as early as august, more like September-October... But nothing is certain about that trip yet.

    Land Between the Lakes or Mammoth Cave are always fun places to go.

    Well if it's Mammoth Cave we might be able to stop by. That's REAL close to us, less than 40 miles away.

    Well it's getting to the end of April, has any more thought been given to this years Jamboree? I would like to see a date agreed upon soon, as most of us need to plan well ahead. I'll look into some locations that might be of interest. We all need to get involved - don't worry, it doesn't hurt.

    For everyone that lives too far for this rendezvous, please consider promoting one in your area. Our prior two have been real fun and it's nice to meet some of the forum members.

    If you do it in late September or early October I could actually come as I'll be back by mid to late September, Ohio, Ky, Indy, is real good for me. This is granting I don't have any unforseen problems like a bullet in the arse... lol
    There is no greater solitude than that of the Tracker in the forest, unless perhaps it's that of the wolf in the wilderness.

    Whatever dates work for most people. I know that last year's weather was perfect for the location we were at.

    We just lucked into that weather. We should decide now if we want it early, mid, or late Summer. Shoot, we could even wait till Fall if we wanted, but it would be best if we all decided on a time we would like to go.

    I would like to have it in the Fall, the parks are much less busy except for the Fall foliage seekers.

    Here is one suggestion for a location.

    Bluestone Wildlife Management Area, southern West Virginia

    I haven't been there but would be willing to go down to check it out. If anyone has been there, please leave some feedback about the place.

    Gosh. That's getting out of the "Midwest". I know some of the Wisconsin folks had expressed an interest as well.

    Phil - What about East Fork east of Cincinnatti? Have you been there? They have all sorts of trails ranging from 1/2 mile up to a 32 mile and lots of trails in the 3 and 5 miles range. They even offer a 14 mile trail. It looks like it's on a Corps of Engineers lake.

    I've been there, it's a nice park but busy in the summer. It has everything a park could offer. It would be a good choice.
