Announcing a new Meetup for DC Mountain Madness!

What: New River Gorge Bridge Day Weekend

When: October 16,[masked]:00 PM

Price: $32.75 per person

Mountain State Campground
217 Chestnutburg Rd
Fayetteville, WV 25840

This is the "camping only" portion of the Self Rescue class. There are 7 spots available for camping the weekend of Bridge Day. I'm told this is a serious, serious party.

When Bridge Day arrives, more than 200,000 people converge over the course of the day [Saturday] to take part the day-long festival. BASE jumpers parachute off the New River Gorge Bridge diving 876-feet into the New River Gorge below. Rapellers descend on ropes like caterpillars beneath the mighty bridge. More than 200 vendors provide delicious foods and fantastic entertainment!

We'll be camping Friday and Saturday night at Mountain State Campground in Fayetteville. Attend Bridge Day on Saturday and then Sunday join the self-rescue class climbers for a day of climbing around the New! Beginners welcome to come climb with us, but you'll need climbing gear. Otherwise we could have another Unscripted Day-o-Fun (hiking, white water rafting, etc).

$32.75 per person for two nights camping.

It's a five hour drive down to Fayetteville, so we should plan to leave mid afternoon Friday. Probably won't get back into DC until late Sunday.
