    I was just thinking about the Illinois, Michigan and Wisconsin folks having to travel. W. Virginia is a bit of a drive. If we keep it south then Crash doesn't have so far to drive either. Someone mentioned Mammoth Cave in Kentucky. That would be a good one, too.

    Just to think outloud....If we wait until September the start of school might be a problem for some. August will probably be pretty hot. June-July time frame?

    I think if we wanted to have it further north, then the lower half of Michigan would be best area to look into.

    If we want it centrally located for those that have attended before, Kentucky is about in the middle.

    Lots of places in KY to have a meet.

    Mammoth Cave: http://www.nps.gov/maca/index.htm (Worlds largest known cave, and not to mention Cedar Sink.)

    Carter Caves: http://parks.ky.gov/findparks/resortparks/cc/ (Has an underground waterfall if I remember correctly)

    Land Between the Lakes: http://www.lbl.org/ (Elk and Bison Prairie)

    Lots to choose from, just have to decide what you want to do.

    Thought I'd revive this to see if we might be able to get something going. I'll just toss this out - (pick a place) October 21 - 23. Thoughts?

    This is just me thinkin out loud, but if it's in Indiana and you want a place out in the sticks the hoosier national forest might be a place to consider. They have horse/hiking trails, camping, and fishing. Heres their website http://www.fs.usda.gov/wps/portal/fs...Forest-%20Home

    I know that PGV has expressed interest. Any other takers so we can form up some plans?

    If it's close and my school schedule permits, I'd like to come.

    I am interested. I cannot travel far from home, I have too many responsibilities at home. If ya'll ever want a deep swamp experience....I can definately make it happen.

    Unless it's REAL Close, I think Dottie and I will have to pass this year, although she thinks that is when her last vacation is scheduled for this year....Oct. 21-23.

    Depending on where it is at will determine if Mel and I and the boys can attend. I like the October dates actually. Not hot and not cold just right I think. Foliage will be pretty to for the hikes. I will look back in a bit to see if there has been any responses.

    I got directions to Mammoth Cave and Mel and I are only about 23 miles from there.
    We are approxamately 139 miles from Land Between the Lakes and 215 miles from Carter Caves.
    Mammoth Cave we could definitely get to but not real sure about the other two places this year.

    Mammoth Cave is doable for me as well. It would be a good explore for kids you and old alike.

    My only concern for any location is reservering campsites. It can get busy in the Fall as we know.
