    In less than two weeks it will be time to assemble for the MI Fall Gathering. This thread is to firm up the details of attendance and supplies. Unlike the Waterloo cabin, the Pinckney Rec yurt is heated with propane (supplied) so we will be responsible for our own stash of firewood. There is also a propane stove, but we need to supply the canisters. Other than that, it's business as usual. Post here if you plan on coming, and make note of what your food contribution will be. If anyone has any questions or comments, post them here. I'll start.

    Make sure you post how much the yurt is, and about how much firewood will cost, so we know how much money to bring!

    I'll bring my Snakewood Galley Wag, my Combat Survival kit, and the DBH of course!

    Let's get a head count so I can buy steaks etc.

    Looks like this will be our smallest Gathering. We currently have a mere four confirmed participants.

    The DBH is the ultimate camp tool! Great for moving burning wood from the campfire to the cooking grill.

    If the head count is that much lower than previous gatherings, I think we'll be having hand-carved filets. ;^)

    I wish I could make it guys, but the man is keeping me down.:D

    6 day workweeks are nice to have, but they have basically eliminate any chance for a social life.

    I hope there will be plenty (not incriminating :D) pictures to share.

    Have fun, folks.
