  • Campout Reminder

    Just a reminder. We are doing another DC206/503 camp out this year. While the camp out is between our two groups, any other DCG folks are welcome to attend if you feel so inclined! We will be camping at the Lewis and Clark state park, just south and east of Chehalis, WA. We have our own private camp site (which costs us per night, so bring some spare change). In addition to hanging out and enjoying each other's company, we will also be doing some 'hip pocket training' on wilderness related things such as safety, survival, and land navigation.

    Also, Meee is apparently setting up an Iron Chef style cook-off for us BBQ enthusiasts. This should be very entertaining. If you have been to one of the camp outs before, you know that theres more than a few of us who know how to cook outdoors and that the food is always one of the high points of the trip. Now that there's a competition involved we all have to bring our 'A' game, so the food will probably be even better than its been in the past.

    To throw the gauntlet down, Evil and I look forward to taking everyone to school on this one. Someone will have to tell us what 'second place' tastes like :)

    Park charges a few bucks a head per night, with nightly counts.. so actual cost depends on how many nights folks want to stay. For folks further than WA/OR I can only guess that would be more than less nights .. but it is what it is.

    I've been known to come up with interesting concoctions on limited resources. It's on!

    This year is posed to be the hippest shindig thusfar. Another cool thing about the group site is that (should it rain, unlike prior years of beautiful weather) there is covered ground that we can arrange to keep things enjoyable. Hell.. a few tarps and poles and we could build our own seaciety.
    if it gets me nowhere, I'll go there proud; and I'm gonna go there free.

                            Ok. Where is my update? It is sunday! I demand the results of the campout cookoff!

                            Ok, well maybe demand is too strong of a word.

                            How about request instead?

                            Also, how was the campout?

                              It tasted great and had twice the fat content of any other cookoff.
