Wintergheddon 2017, Jan 13-15 Cuivre River State Park

Holy smokes, we are doing it again... WINTERGHEDDON. 2017. Back at Cuivre River State Park for Friday the 13th (hockey mask optional).

As per previous years, Wintergheddon will be on MLK weekend, leaving Friday morning, and returning Sunday morning with the optional destruction of a Denny's Bathroom. We're repeating the previous location, for those of you who have been there before. It's about 90 minutes of driving each way, and we'll certainly caravan together to get there.

Please understand that you need to know what you're doing at this time of year, and have solid gear, or you might die. Nature doesn't fuck around at this time of year. It hates you and wants to kill you.

If you are interested in going to Wintergheddon with 001, please email me with "Wintergheddon 2017" in the subject line, and I'll add you to a list to distribute specifics to.
The final weapon is the brain. All else is supplemental.

As usual: in. Posting merely for attendance note.

Does anyone in our chapter even read the forums for events? I don't really hear anyone talk about the forums much except in past-tense. I only knew of this thread because of the link on the Facebooks :D

Mostly, NO. But I am hoping to change this. Facebook is a great way for posting events, but keeping a record of events is a bit of a pain in the ass with good ol'BOOKface.

This is from previous trips in the past years, let us know if you need any more info:


Here's the organizational and logistics post for this years trip, to make sure everyone is on the same page.

ZSC-001 WINTERGHEDDON 2017
CONVOY LEAVING FROM CHIPPEWA AND HAMPTON AT 0830 ON FRIDAY, 13 JANUARY.
SECONDARY STAGING AREA AT BASS PRO SHOPS IN SAINT CHARLES, MAIN CONVOY WILL STOP THERE.

PARK LOCATION:
678 STATE ROUTE 147
TROY, MO 63379
636-528-7247


COMMUNICATIONS:
GMRS Channel 25
CELL PHONES TBD, fill in as needed




NOTES
If you come late, please consolidate parking in the visitor center lot to avoid jamming up the 6-car lot at the trailhead.
Please try to contact the camp before leaving the trailhead, so we know you’re on the way.
Campers are responsible for maintaining and/or retrieving their own toes.


The game plan is to leave from the McDonald's at Chippewa and Hampton in South City around 8:30 in convoy.




For those of you who don't want to trek into the city just to trek back out, the convoy will swing by Bass Pro Shops in Saint Charles, so people can have one last chance to pick up mittens and warm fuzzy hats. We'll probably be out of Bass Pro by 10am, so make sure you get there before then to meet up with us.

Destination is Cuivre River State Park, near Troy, MO.

We will drive in from Hwy 47, and stop in at the ranger station. That gives us a chance to say hi to the rangers, check into the guest book, and take one last dump in a flush toilet. Once there, we will consolidate bodies and gear into fewer cars and carpool to the trailhead lot, which only accommodates about 6 vehicles. From there we head off to camp.

If you cannot roll out with the convoy, please try to coordinate or carpool with someone else, so we don't overflow the wee parking lot at the trailhead.
Additionally, please try to make contact with the people already at camp via one of the methods above, so we know you're on the way in case you get lost.

I've put the important info into a PDF for easy reference and printing, here: http://www.intarnet.us/zs/docs/wgheddon2011.pdf
