We're going camping!

We're going to have a great time enjoying God's beautiful creation, but before we go we need to get a few things organized.

Welcome to our Wiki site! We'll use this site to communicate prior to our trip. Please take a few minutes to read the pages on this site. Add information where we've left something off & change information that we have incorrect. Our goal is to have a wonderful group camping experience.

The navigation links on the left of this page will help you move through the wiki. Be sure to read each page. Some items will be needed by every family (Essentials page). We can each bring a few other items to share with everyone to make all of our loads a little lighter (Needed items page). Be sure to read about the food (Menu page). We'll bring the items for supper on Saturday and Sunday nights. Breakfasts and lunches will be on your own. We'll have our Bible Study on Sunday morning. Check out the Itinerary page to see what else we're thinking of! Links to sites around the area and the weather forecast are on the Hot Spots page.

We'll split the cost of the site and the food for the two supper meals. The actual price won't be determined until we have a final head count and we've done the shopping! (Last year was about $65/family). Each family will provide their own breakfasts, lunches, snacks, drinks, etc. If you're coming up Friday evening, you may want to bring supper in with you to save time and clean up on your first night in camp. Subway (in Wal-Mart), Burger King (across from Wal-Mart), KFC, Taco Bell, and McDonalds (about 1 mile past Wal-Mart on 226) are all in Spruce Pine. Pizza Hut, Western Sizzlin buffet, and a Chinese buffet are also about a mile past Wal-Mart on 226. If you want to adventure a few more miles into downtown Spruce Pine, we recommend DT's Java--they have great sandwiches, desserts, and coffees. Another awesome Spruce Pine restaurant is the Tropical Grill on Upper Street. The delicious international cuisine is worth the wait and the drive!

If you have any questions or comments, post them to the discussion tab on this site! Post a new message or click the subject of an existing message to read the thread or to reply. By the way, there is a separate discussion tab for each page within the wiki.

We look forward to a great camping experience!
