You just need to show up. We chose a campground to gather. As a group we will have an area (the pavilion) where people can meet after sunset and also an area (PaulG's camper) where people can gather to have morning coffee. The pavilion will remain available to be used for a meeting or gathering place for the whole weekend if people want to take a mid-day break or whatever. Accomodations are on your own. Though it is unlikely for all camp sites to be booked, it is theoretically possible, so a reservation might be advisable. Also, having a choice of campsite (near pavilion, far from pavilion, near bathrooms, etc.) might dictate making a reservation early as well.

Hope to meet you there.

I would recommend camping a greater distance from the pavilion if you are one to retire early and are sensitive to noise. The discussion continues late into the night at the pavilion.

Things are not set in stone yet for me. But right now it looks like I have the entire following week off. Which would most likely mean I'm arriving Friday and staying the week.

Shakey's guitar performance was actually on my guitar. Assuming my plans don't change, I will bring it again and he is welcome to use it. So if he can't fit his on the motorcycle, thats an option for him. I play too but I can't hold a candle to him (or most others, probably), so for the sake of everybody's sanity I'm always willing to let others play it. :)

I'm up in the air on lodging. I invited my wife but she's doubtful. Assuming she doesn't go I'm open to a cabin if anyone wants to go in on that. Millertime, I'm also open to sharing a campsite, not the tent though, lol.

Tenting it isn't so bad. I did it for all but one Jam. If you have a tent big enough to accommodate a cot, I highly suggest it as heavy rain just about guaranteed.

I missed last year but I have a very warm sleeping bag...when I lived in Idaho we used to just throw them on the ground when we got to the trailhead and get up the next morning to hike up to the lakes. There was usually frost on the ground in the morning. Of course it was @ 7000ft but it was July or August.

Tom's Grizzly Adams advice aside, having learned a bit more about tent camping from my adventure with Bruno to Pulaski in October, I recommend:

a tent you are sure is watertight
a ground cover under the tent to keep moisture away from the tent bottom if possible.
A cot or air mattress to get you off the ground and any moisture.
As tom mentioned, a warm sleeping bag.

Warm clothes to sleep in:
Breathable socks or wool if real cold
tossle cap, polypro or fleece pants/sweatpant/longjohns/sweatshirt.
Rain jacket and shoes/boots handy to leave tent and stay dry

If teamed with another or on your own, bring a canopy tent that you can set a picnic table under and have a relatively dry place to get out of tent, grab a beer, a snack, etc.

Have a flashlight or headlamp in your tent. Bring a lantern.

I've left stuff out, but this will help a lot.

I mentioned these:

a warm sleeping bag.

Because I think they are the only variables from any other kind of camping. If you don't do the other stuff in any kind of camping you should get a hotel. I have done the air mattress thing...if you don't have a cot you'll get wet...its just a matter of how wet. If you have a pickup with a cap, get a thermarest or similar insulated pad and sleep in the bed...better than a lot of cabin beds.

I've never camped, so I'm completely without clue as to how this works. That said, I'm considering coming for a night or so, and will simply sleep in the back of my vehicle on an airmattress.

First off, from those who are campers, is this a bad idea?

I assume that all I need to do is reserve a spot with the camp ground then, tell the guy I'm sleeping in a van.

Are there facilities? I know, its a stupid question, but again, totally clueless here.
