More info

This is a camping trip to Bagby Hot Springs, not a hot springs trip where we happen to camp. The hot springs are fantastic, but if you're not interested or have an aversion to a clothing optional environment (some wear suits, others do not) you're more than welcome to come just for the camping. The spot we picked last time was a great location with a fire pit next to the river.

  • Eric's bringing a camp stove (heavy two-burner, anyone have a backpacking stove?)

  • Something to eat for dinner
  • Something to eat for breakfast

  • Camp stove

  • 1 gallon agua (there isn't anything but mineral water from teh springs up there)
  • one 6-pack Full Sail pale ale, I have first dibs on this one.

I'm bringing enough food for four of us. Dinner is contingent on fire. I plan on doing tin foil cooking in the fire. no fire = dinner FAIL

  • wee red potatoes
  • hummus & blue corn chips
