Do you own your own tent? equipment?--NOTE if you do NOT you will not be accepted to the group as I have found, that those who do not own equipment do NOT participate...this group is for people who will show up!

Yup, i got at least three tents in good shape; a full kitchen set up, a couple of stoves & lanterns, and more sleeping bags & camp chairs then I need.

We are interested in obtaining members who will show up and camp...were you a prior member of Crazy Cool Campers and removed due to inactivity? If so please explain what has changed that will enable you to join in with the group this year.


Where is your favorite place to camp? Actual camp name/and/or mountains,water,music venues etc and part two: are you aware that the picture you post MUST be clearly identifiable? It can not be a long distance, hidden by tree, side view, etc..

1)Woodland Valley, NY - Well maintained state run facility with incredibly helpful staff 2)Hudson River Revival Festival - great karma at this annual June event

How long have you been camping?

Since I was a kid... I got a heavy canvas army tent for my 10th birthday and slept in it all summer

What are you favorite activites while camping? and do you prefer to stay in the campsite or visit outsite to local areas?

Painting, reading, tubing, sitting around a campfire, hiking, kicking back and getting out exploring whats around me.


Mike here... love camping; from minimalist backpacking to 'glamping' (Setting up full kitchen, tent with chandelier, etc) and everything in-between.

What Mike D is saying about this Meetup Group

Traditionally I stick to the Groucho rule of "any group that would have me as a member, I want no part of"...NOT THE CASE WITH THIS GROUP! Hope to re-connect with this group soon.
