Upper Midwest GGG LETS DO IT !!!
For my wife and I, May 12-13 for sure, April 21-22 re roofing, April 14-15 possibly, but would have to switch some plans.
has the date been settled?
Hi Jim thanks for asking. NOTE TO ALL: I will post the winning date this sunday evening, so far it looks like april 14-15 is winning and May 12-13 is second. That is assuming that the people who just said "Im in" can do any of the dates which is my case, I just want to pull in as many people as possible. I will put up a few signs in the park/state forest on the roads and the trailhead registering area to direct you to parking and the hike in area I will get there the friday b4 as early as possible and I assumn some people will come friday also. If anyone would like to contact me about routes to get there or any other questions pm me with E-mail address or better yet a phone # and best time to call. If you don't mind get me your phone #s and I will enter it in my phone and get you mine it might help incase of emergency or getting lost or stranded. There are some very scenic routes to get there. If you have the time and are coming from the south or south east I highly recommend The great river road national senic byway. It is the slower route and runs along the mississippi as much as it can. I hope more will try to make it out to this and I'm looking forward to meeting you all. But I really want to see and touch a Elightened Equipment quilt... Travis??? I will bring my hand sanitizer. So everyone get out the Ti trowel or get off the fence ;^)
I had earlier said I was a go for Apr 14-15 but that has changed. Hope y'all have a good time.
If Jim is out then it looks like a tie between april 14-15 and May 12-13. Travis, Doug and I can do any date James L didnt state a date so I will PM him to check. If anything has changed for anyone or Anyone else wants to come post ASAP
May works best for us.
I can do either, but I am leaning towards May.
May looks better. It looks like I have lost control of my schedule for Apr.
Ok so May 12-13 weekend it is. Tim Z said this works for him also.
Iowa is higher than the rockys, that is with this bump
As Mark said above, May 12-13 is the date!
Will anyone be arriving on Friday? My wife and I will be coming from the Rochester areaand can get there almost anytime after 6PM Friday.
Dave. I am shooting for Friday. It looks like about 9 hours for me. So the plan is hike in camp site. Looks like some nice day trails. Any other thoughts?
I will get there as early as I can on friday maybe even thursday night. I will try to get Doug to scan and post a map of the forest/roads/trails. There is a shelter at one of the hikein sites Im leaning to that site but will get up and check all 4 areas in the next couple weeks.

I other areas of the country It's Gathering of Gear Geeks but thats not to say that our third G couldnt be Greats or Gladiators or Genius's or___________!
Now hold on there Mr Grizzly bear man, Mike Clelland endorses the use of corn cobs as a alternate to T.P. And I think most will be surprised at this part of the state we do have a little that was not burned and plowed. Although there are parts of the area we are going that borders corn fields.

Hahaha. Be happy you're not in Kansas. I have to take antidepressants just for the drive across that state.
I am going to bring my Tenkara gear. If any one is interested I have an exrta rod.
