This may sound weird but I think it'd be cool if we could do some hand to hand combat or melee weapons training. Because I severely lack skills in that department... If not, that's fine too

Like kcorr said, this site (and this thread) talks about zombies, and the most efficient way to make them go BOOM (from what I've gathered so far, it involves a healthy application of tannerite, can't wait to see it in person :clap: )
As I was told back in college while training to work security at PKD, "a weekend of training will be enough to fulfill DCJS requirements, and enough time to teach just enough to get your ass beat in a fight" :lol:
Seriously though, talking about some very basic stuff would be interesting...but it'd probably have to stay at the basics.

If you guys could elaborate on what unarmed stuff you're interested in, I might be able to help.
Does your BOB at least have: water, basic tools, fire, food, first-aid kit, and shelter?

Also I should be able to bring some wood and coal for the fire. I have plenty of access to it since my move. This way we will not have to buy as much.

Just to let everyone know, I won't be there until around 4 Friday. I have a fairly large tent.. just making sure I've got room to set up.

Even the weathermen aren't willing to bet on the weather right now...either way, I'm sure this trip will be awesome.

I'm still excited and curious to see how this turns out. My wife and I have a mandatory training class on Saturday that we can not miss. As of now the plan is to come up Friday night after work, get up early Saturday and taking down everything and hitting the road. The class was originally scheduled for ten but now it's 9 in Martinsburg. We are going to have to pull out around 6 or 7. It should be over around 6 pm... At which point I'll swing over to take care of the pig, chickens, and dogs then head back to camp. Is anyone planning on hitting IHOP or someplace Sunday morning?

I may not be able to make this one.. we are finishing up a project at my job that needs to be completed by Friday and all hands are on deck.

If we get it done in time, I'll be there, if not, I'll let you guys know.

Sorry to hear that. I am just getting over my knee injury from December. Rest up, we'll have another one soon. Hopefully. :)

I imagine we will have another one, hopefully before the start of the summer !!! My "PLAN" is to do something, every other month or so, too much time in between and it seems to stretch from months to several months, then so on !
