Using guns and arrows is a helluva lot better that using Xterras. Just ask mbabc.

Indiana's invasion of the Orange Army thankfully doesn't happen until the Saturday after TTUHNFCO/R. You do NOT want to be in or near the woods on opening day.

I used to go down to my woods to defend it from the invaders who unfortunately don't seem to be able to read the many "No Trespassing" signs surrounding my property. Tens of thousands of acres of national and state forest surround my place and they all want to hunt my tiny ravine. Go figure.

I had acquired a number of "bird bombs" that were according to the guy who sold them to me about the equivilent of a quarter stick of dynamite. Whatever they are they're loud as hell!!! I used to set one off at the time the season began and I'm sure in the quiet of the early morning it had to help evacuate the bowels of a few hunters...

Kill as many of the damn things as you can. We're overrun with them and they literally pose a threat to the life of anyone who rides a motorcycle.

I'd like to put a bumper on my truck like those you see on Aussie trucks to fend off kangaroos and such and go "hunting" in my own way.

Be a star!!

I've been talking to an inmate about bringing his guitar to this grand gathering to entertain us. Unfortunately riding a motorcycle and carrying a git-fiddle don't go together very well.

Any locals willing to supply a guitar for our surprise entertainer?

For that matter if any of you have any musical talents it would be great to have you share it with us around the fire. Whether you play a guitar, harmonica, kazoo, spoons or whatever instead of just standing around staring at a fire listening to guys belch and fart we could have some music to go along with guys standing around staring at a fire, belching and farting...

Imagine if an opera singer showed up at the fire like what happened to Dirt Flirt and oPaulo last year in Colorado. I guess she knocked their socks off!!

Food!!

Being a nervous at camping I've gotta ask what do you folks eat when you're out living in the wilderness? Especially if it's cold I can see me craving hot food.

What do you use for far? Backpacking stoves or even one of those soda can stoves I've been reading about? Cook over an open fire?

Just what exactly do you bring along in the way of food?

Advice, por favor.

Other than what I might eat while out riding--or maybe going to Crazy Joe's for breakfast or lunch--I figured I'd do all my eating right at the campsite, figuring I'd learn a bit about camp cooking in the process.

I'm planning on being there Friday morning through Sunday so I figure I'll be making several meals. The hot dog idea is a good one for Saturday night, though.

Any ideas from veterans would be greatly appreciated.

I have a MSR Whisperlite International and it has served me well for over 10 years. I also have MSR pots and pans. I like to do extravagant food when I camp kinda like its a treat to me with some good drink and a nice cigar.

Crazy Joe's is over on Chapel Hill Rd. near Hardin Ridge and offers the usual camping supplies and a restaurant as well with same-day service.

Bring all that and we will all pitch in on food.

food prep

I have a Jetboil Flash and a collapsible skillet that has been fantastic. The stove packs all within itself so it takes up very little space. Plus the fact that the pot is also a mug with the neoprene handle is pretty much like killing two birds with one stone. I normally do the little packets of instant coffee to get me by and get some of the "just add water" meals and oatmeal for breakfast. JL Waters has everything and more, including my titanium spork!!!, that I carry so go check them out and support a great local business.
