We will not hold our normal meeting at the Truprep location. If you show up at Truprep on Nov 9th, no one will be there. You've been informed :-)
Location is about 2 hours north, in Blue Ridge Georgia.
The purpose of this camping trip is to simulate an emergency situation where your home may not be an option and to give you an opportunity to try out some of your preps. It's important to try things out before an emergency situation. For example: a dear beloved member of ours learned one morning, after spending the night in the shape of a U and waking up with a terrible neck cramp, that when sleeping in an Eno hammock, one wants to have plenty of space between trees to pull the hammock taunt... Good to know.
You will be responsible for bring your own food, drink and sleeping arrangements. The only thing provided on this trip is the property where we will be staying and darn good company. You are also responsible for your own transportation. I suggest carpooling. If you want to ride with someone or are willing to drive others, see the discussions tab at the top.
There will be a small pond on the premises for those of you who would like to try out your Berkey or to go fishing.
My husband Mark will be happy to teach you the basics of deer hunting. If you are interested in going out on a hunt, you must have a Ga hunting permit. http://www.georgiawildlife.com/node/669
You are allowed to bring firearms if you have a carry permit and have been trained in gun safety.
You are allowed to bring alcoholic beverages (beer and wine for social fellowship is okay but please drink responsibly. Drunken stupor will not be tolerated.)
You are allowed to bring kids 13 years old and over (at your own discretion.)
Please see the "Discussions" tab for a list of suggested camping items to bring.
Please consider bringing firewood. Mark was on the property last weekend and said that there were not many trees down.
You will be asked to sign a waiver before the trip.

Doublehead Gap Road will be paved for about 5 miles, then it will turn into a gravel road for about 2 miles. THen it will turn back into a paved road and the property will be very close to the gravel/paved road transition.
I will put a sign in front of the entrance.
