    Enjoyed sitting around the warm campfire listening to many words of wisdom, etc. Learned how to make a square knot. Thanks organizers for a great job.

    Thank you for a warm welcome and great backpacking info. I learned a lot in one afternoon and you couldn't have been more helpful and generous with sharing your knowledge. I enjoyed meeting everyone there and look forward to next meetup I attend.

    I thought the outing was great. I got a number of learnings on gear and food. Tried the OvaEasy freeze dried eggs today and was good, not quite chicken good, but the best backpacking type I've eaten. I ordered a pair of SmartWool arm warmers today, Pam K. showed me what they looked like.

    I am going to have to back out on camping, CRV bit the dust in a wreck and scrambling to find replacement 4x4. And it picked this last week to snow constantly on Roan mtn. Was looking forward to it. 60's sounds tropical after this last month on Roan. May try to make for day if can.
