Garden of the Gods in Illinois

Going to do another trip due to the wait list being so full on the previous trip. We will probalby not do as many miles (under 10) as the other trip, but will spend more time in Garden of the Gods. I have RSVP'd everyone on the wait list for the other trip as yes. If you can't make it, or don't want to do a low mileage trip, please change your RSVP to no so someone that does want to go, can go.

    Had a great time. It was good hanging out with everyone. Saturdays camp had to be one of my top 10 favorites. We will go back at some point.

    sorry to bail on such short notice, but something came up this week which caused me to blah blah blah etc. etc.
    Anyway, have a great trip!

    Here are driving directions from Indy to the parking lot. This route goes through Bloomington so Jeff and Roger can use it to.

    Does anyone feels comfortable going earlier than me (it's looking like I can't leave until 5 fri evening) and finding a camp site close to the backpackers parking area? That way we don't have to search around in the dark. I've not been here before and don't know the area like most of the other trips.

      That's fine. I can pick you up wherever you like but it might be closer to 4:00 for me. I interview people for work and was just gonna leave after my last interview, so I'm not sure on the exact time I will be leaving. If I'm lucky, maybe 3:30 would be a possibility but don't count on it. I will be coming from Columbus via 46. We can communicate by text here on out. My phone is[masked]

    What time does everyone want to meet on the southside of Indy on Friday, March 28th? The wife and I can be ready by 5. Possibly sooner if half days are an option for everyone else.

      We are driving the Taurus wagon. But we will have our dog half the trip until we drop her off at my parents. Then on the way back we will have the dog and kids. (They live right off of I64 near the Indiana/Illinois line)

      So we may have room for a person if need be.....you just have to deal with a dog(greyhound) and kids for a few hours.

    I added my name for Tony until we get his registration sorted out.

    I won't be able to make it. I'll be in north Carolina that week tackling some mountain hiking.

    February 21, 2014

    • Kyle M.

      Ok. Thanks for responding and have fun in North Carolina.

      February 21, 2014

  • Kyle M.

    So far I've heard from everyone except Eric and Miles. I need to know by Friday the 21st by 8 p.m. After that, I will add people from the waitlist.

    1 · February 20, 2014

  • Jeff

    I am definitely going on this trip

    1 · February 20, 2014

  • Kyle M.

    Those that were automatically added from the wait list on the other trip, please comment and confirm you are going by Friday, 2-21-14. After that, I will assume you are not getting emails, and or not going and you will be placed on the wait list. I don't want to seem harsh, but I also don't want a no show take up a spot that could keep someone else from going.

    • Rumiko

      I am going.

  • Terri Lynn R.

    I'm in! Heading to the other to remove myself and my +1. This weekend will actually work out better.

    How many miles do you think?

    February 17, 2014

    • Kyle M.

      I need to look at maps and plan this some more. Right now I would say less than 10 for the weekend. Most of that 10 will probably be without packs.

      February 17, 2014

    • Kyle M.

      Also open to suggestions.

      February 17, 2014

  • John L.

    Nice Kyle. If you guys are planning on doing only this trip and you are on the wait list for the other trip would you please remove your name from the other wait list?
