    About two years ago I setup setup a camping trip in order to get a group of Busse enthusiasts into the woods to use our knives. The trip was a success and the 6 of us that attended had a lot of fun. Last year I hosted a second spring camping trip, and it too was a blast, so much so that it's now a spring tradition. Now that spring is quickly approaching and the weather is getting nicer, it's time to setup another trip for those that would like to attend. Everybody here on this forum is welcome to attend, and you are welcome to bring friends so long as they are respectful of my property and the other people attending. Family is welcome to attend, but there is likely to be drinking around the fire in the evenings (and probably other times too) so keep that in mind if you want to bring little ones. The camping trip will be the weekend of Friday April 27th through Sunday April 29th.

    Here is the thread from the trip in the spring of 2016, pics start around page 10 I believe: http://www.bladeforums.com/forums/s...st-Camping-Trip-v2-Weekend-of-April-30th-2016

    Here is the thread from the trip in the spring of 2017: https://www.bladeforums.com/threads...oast-camping-trip-weekend-of-4-28-17.1475105/

    My land is a little over 50 acres in WV; most of it is pretty steep but there are plenty of places to pitch a tent that are accessible from a gravel driveway. I do not have running water or electricity on the land, but I do have plenty of room for us to put our INFI to good use, have a big fire, and enjoy the woods.

    There is a Walmart (11 Harness Rd, Moorefield, WV 26836) nearby that would probably be the best place to meet at and get supplies if anybody needs anything. There are also plenty of restaurants nearby if people don't want to eat camp food the entire time. It's obviously not required to attend the whole weekend, if you can only make one night that's completely okay.

    People that are attending (list will be updated when more people confirm):
    • Zmbhntr
    • breavis5694
    • rcb2000
    • resinguy
    • zombieassassin
    • F'lar
    • legaleagle
    • bullpin
    People trying to come (working on schedule etc.)
    • Nakago1
    • TRog

    Here are some pics from the previous trips:

    That one is my hammock, and it's a Hennessy Jungle Safari Zip. Breavis also uses a Hennessy, but I forget what model he uses.

    Getting Married on the 28th or I'd be there, was sorry to have missed the last round due to another scheduled camping trip.

    Hope that you all have an amazing time!

    I'm not on the hammock forums myself, I already spend too much time online as it is. I think Breavis may be though.

    Admittedly, hammock talk isn't quite as "cool" as talking about resins. :p

    SAS flies direct to IAD! ;)

    By far the MOAB and Keffeler Sasquatch in my testing. Those results are from more than just log testing.

    It would be great have you if you would like to make the trek out.

    It would be amazing if you could make it! Are you headed to Blade this year? As an added bonus we could talk longest cigar ash strategery.

    That's a looooooon drive. Way too long I think. You could maybe check into flights though. IAD is less than 2 hours from the land, and it is probably the largest airport near the land. There are probably regional airports as well, but oftentimes regional airports cost more money to fly into.
