I scored two XL Tent Cots. I think I will use them for quickies and take the cabin tent for the Springs. We could combine camping for a few of us too and take a big tent for a few growling bears! I plan on laying out everything soon and see what I need to leave home!

Bob mentioned that there were places to camp legally near Spider Lake, so you could walk over and enjoy the lake without camping there.

Two days of wheeling, ending in the Springs on Thursday night is fine with me. It will be nice to set up tents and leave them for 3 days.

I vote for three nights camping!! We, as have most of you it sounds like, purchased a second house for a tent. Setting it up for one night is a pain but three works fine

Thanks UB for clearing that up, I am easily

So it sounds like maybe I can bunk in one of the condo's and I don't need to bring my own tent? I cleaned it up yesterday and set it up. It's a nice little 2-man I bought from Cabella's 20 years ago. I even found the original receipt in the bag.

Not to rain on parades, but I'm pretty sure that if you guys stayed at Buck 2 nights that would screw up the following runs. There are limited Buck Island camp spots, and having 16 extra Wednesday rigs there Thursday night would really screw things up for the two Thursday runs that camp there. It would also dramatically impact Friday down Big Sluice.

Food for thought.
