Time to start thinking about a Bully camp in the cold.  Creek and I were tossing around the end of January or beginning of February for a frozen ice hole get together.

Please post your interest and what weekends might work best for you. 

Location to be determined but I'm amenable to traveling anywhere in NC, SC or VA so lets hear some ideas.

All new Ice Holes and Bullies are welcome.

Y'all need me to cut a few ice holes, pack them up and send them down?

I wanna but between Alafia Rendezvous in Jan and Hushnel's shootout in Feb it's doubtful I could make it.

Just keep us all safe (no pressure though) and we'll do another when you are back.

Sounds good, I'm in then.

If any other Krac's want to go, let me know and I'll pick you up on the way North. If more than two, I'll hitch up my little cargo trailer for hauling gear, and we'll be good to go.

We'll work on a location and get the details squared away as soon as possible.

Its a shame the parkway is closed. I really liked your campsite.

I've never been, but it has been on my list for a while. Let me look into the particulars when I get home.

Check out BADIN LAKE CAMPGROUND, most if not all of the upper loop is free that weekend, it looks like the lower loop is fully booked (scouts?, no idea). 

Without any additional info hard to pick out a specific site or two.

Or West Morris Mtn. Campground, it sounds a bit more rustic, but it is first come first serve.  Although in February that should not be an issue.

Kind of like the look of it, especially the description of usage as "light".

I was talking with some guys earlier this month about Uwharrie National Forest. They do some off roading there and are having an event in April that I'm planning on attending.

Edit. Forgot to add, Crash and I will probably be coming up on Thursday afternoon, so we'll need to reserve an extra day for us if everyone else is coming in on Friday.

looks like badin is more standard camping. and west morris is a little more on the primitive side. in that case, i vote for west morris. maybe figure out someway to park and hike in a couple of miles to somewhere away from everywhere. you know, test the bully skills...

I'm kinda leaning in that direction too. 

Also a shout out, JTD, it's an easy two hour drive for you  O:-)

I think the camp sites are reachable by vehicle.  I'm going to call the Forest Service office about the group site, it may be the way to go.  And I think there is a shooting range in the area that is open on Saturday so I'll check into that too.

So West Morris Mtn. Campground it is.  2/25-2/28

I'm going to try to make it on Thursday 2/25 and grab one of the large group sites, it is first come first served but the women I spoke with said the usage is very light.  That should easily accommodate all the bullies. 

I was told the range is open and about 15 minutes from the camp site.  And small game season is open until the 29th so if anyone has a squirrel cooker....

No drinking water so bring what you need.  Vault toilets will be open.

so far me, you, creek, yellow yak and crashdive123.  Anyone shout out to U.W. or Sam Bunyon?

We should also talk about food.  I've got a D.O. I want to break in so maybe baked beans.

Sounds like a great location, and thanks for booking the site for Thursday also. As far as food, I'll also bring a Dutch oven as well as fixings to bake some Challah bread for eating and for French toast the next morning. I'll bring some other ingredients to bake up a few treats.

I was out on the last 2 big camps down here due to health issues.  If I continue to improve I have the go ahead to crash this party.  Kelly's Dad grew up in Albemarle and still has his childhood home there. I've road biked around there, hiked and mountainbiked  in Uwharrie, and paddled Lake Badin.

I can also bring a DO and do a 38 Special.  3 cheeses and 8 veggies.

If some others are going to shoot I'll bring a Henry lever action .22.  Love small game but I'm not popping for an out of state for that,  I don't think.

The more, the merrier.  It's been way too long Tony.
Upon this a question arises: whether it be better to be loved than feared or feared than loved? One should wish to be both, but, because it is difficult to unite them in one person, it is much safer to be feared than loved.

It has Mike.

I might make some black bean soup one meal.  That's good gut packin' in cold weather.

Tony, it's great your going to make it if you can get a doctor's pass. I'm really hoping to see some snow this season.

What's is a Super Shelter and how is it constructed?

Oh crap!  Greg is going to be baking again, which means I need to diet two weeks before the trip and three weeks after the trip.  My goodness....he bakes some good stuff!
Just let me know what you like, and I'll see what I can do. Of course, a little shine encouragement goes a long way.

Bake what you like (it's all great).  I'll bake some apple pie and bring it. :drool:  Just don't "eat" too much.  :puke:
