Event Description

 This is not your regular camping event. If you're not interested in bushcraft, shooting, and BSing around the campfire, this may not be for you.

First, a little history. Back in 2009, a group of people interested in wilderness survival (and knives) went camping. After that, it has evolved into a semi-annual event. We've had five of them so far, and it's always a lot of fun.

What makes this unique is that it's car-camping in the middle of the forest. The location is a meadow, just 100 yards from the road, in Sequoia National Forest. It is accessible with a regular vehicle. The site is very nice, but there are no facilities. You need to bring your own water (and shovel).

Activities include: eating, shooting, hiking, archery, firemaking and other survival skills, tomahawk throwing, more eating, and telling lies around the campfire.

Yes there will be shooting (it's legal here). Bring your own gun(s). We set up a temporary target range, and everything is nice and safe. If you don't want to shoot, that's no problem. If you want to learn how to shoot, one of our expert marksmen would be happy to teach you.

This is a friendly, informal, and relaxed event. I'm limiting the sign-up to 6 people because there are already other people attending. We will probably have 15 people max.

I'll be leaving LA at 9am tomorrow. I'll probably get there a bit after 12:30pm. There will be people there earlier (10am). One of the guys said that he will put a sign on the short dirt road that leads to the site.See you there!

Though I don't have space in my car, post here if you're interested in carpooling. Maybe a few of you could share a ride.
