    Of course some of those are coming out of Alabama, Georgia, etc. Not just Florida.

    I live in the Port Charlotte area. I would be interested. If it could be a more central location. Maybe Moore Haven/Clewiston. There may be alot of members in the Tampa/ST. Pete area that could go. The North Florida was far from there wasn't it? I would think that early December would have the best weather. Usually around 80 and sunny. I usually get sunburned hanging my Christmas lights in early December. I could see wanting to stay around Miami, but that is a busy area. How about the Everglades City area? Or even Golden Gate? Just thinkin'
     
  4. Cool, I'm game

                            Love camping, a place where Kayaking as well would be killer.

    ,Johnathan Dickinson has camping and river access to the Loxahatchee,

    Fisheating Creek is a nice campground.........http://fisheatingcreekoutpost.com

    Canoe and Kayak rentals available at both

    but Id travel for Kayaking, The Springs up north are awesome!
     
  5. Oh and Gatorama is just down the street from Fisheating creek!.......... Anyone with kids would love it

    I haven't been there but it looks great. If it was late in the year, the mosquitos would not be a problem after the dry November. The ad says:  Paddling the cypress swamps or hiking our hardwood forests you can see alligators, turtles, deer, wild boar, turkey, wading birds, raptors, an occasional black bear and more. Is is a good idea to have alot of bar-b-que people around those animals? I've had gator, but never smoked. mmmmmm......

    Johnathon Dickenson was brought up before...i've never been there but from what i've heard its a nice place.  I'm really liking this Snake Bite Creek place based on the pictures.

     Well there is no way I would consider camping now. Dam 101º out there on my screen porch.

  11.      Florida Camping in summer over a hot smoker to boot?  Not unless I had a pop up with A/C !

         I think earlier in the thread they were shooting for sometime in November

    One of the attendees lives on the road so I guess you could say NFL had attendees from every state in the Continental US

    Not sure about the rest of N Carolina but I do know that western N. Carolina is one of the most beautiful places in the country.

     Depends on whether I have any money left from taking the wife up to see her mother in NC. We usually do that in the latter part of October. Shoot, I haven't even made a North Florida one yet either. [​IMG]
