Camping Clinic w/Eddie Miller (Bluff City Canoe Club)

  • Feb 23, 2013 · 3:00 PM
Camping Clinic I am trying to set up a meet and greet with everyone to talk about gear and to set up for our next meeting. I have a schedule that I am trying to follow so this is going to be a lot of information in a short time. I am trying to get this worked out to accommodate everyone and I am looking at Saturday February 23rd at 3pm at the Half Shell on Mendenhaul near Poplar. Please let me know if this can or cant work for you. You will not need to bring anything other than yourself and your imagination. You will not need to worry about purchasing anything unless you want to. Though I may spring for some appetizers of something. The main goals of this mini clinic is to get you up to speed as quickly as I can with the absolute bear minimum in both equipment and money. However it still will cost if you don't already have any gear. But please don't run out and buy anything without talking to me first. I would hate for you to put money in the wrong thing. Time line of this is still a work in progress so bear with me. 1 First meeting ( Feb 23rd) is for meet and great and to talk about gear 2 Second meeting (TBD) is to get gear together and see what we need to tweak or work on 3 Third meeting will be a dry run camping experience. This will be a car camping overnight and we will not leave to near vicinity of our cars so if something don't work we will be able to fix it. 4 Forth meeting will be a overnight on the MS River. All gear will need to be in place by this meeting and ready to use. Also this will be camping from a boat. I will try to have other people there with us so we can draw from them as well. I think one person doesn't have a boat yet so we will make for accommodations for this. 5 Fifth meeting will be in time for the Strawberry River Overnight with Tom Iverson. The dates for the other meetings is something that we will address at the first meeting. I look forward to working with each and everyone of you. Look for some information forth coming in the near future as well. Eddie Miller Bluff City Canoe Club Training Chair

    So far I only have Geoffrey, Jim, Don and Bill that has contacted me. Important to contact me as I am sending out some important information prior to meetings that without you will be lost.

    February 15, 2013

  • Eddie M.

    Ok.. I have heard directly from about 4 members from here. I need you to email me if your serious about attending. I have a email list that I am getting ready to send out and I have some gear list as well as reading list. [masked]

    Jim we do the TN Buffalo in January every year providing there is enough water.

    February 13, 2013

  • Jim S.

    Any chance of planning an overnighter on the Tennessee Buffalo, starting from the Natchez Trace? I hear that's pretty cool.

    February 12, 2013

  • Eddie M.

    Hello everyone. Glad that there is such a huge interest on this topic. Let me make this clear up front. This is a workshop or a clinic designed to help you get out in the woods for a overnighter. This first meeting will NOT be camping but a get together to start getting ideas on gear and so that we can move forward. If you are experienced with camping and simply want to camp, then you probably will not enjoy this workshop. You may get board with it. Also as I have originally set this up for the Bluff City Canoe Club this is geared to a boating experience, but there is no reason that you shouldn't attend. If you have any questions comments or concerns please don't hesitate to email me asap at [masked].
    Thanks
    Eddie
