Sounds like a GREAT time Aaron. How many were there?
About 20 people and about half that number of Jeeps.
One Scout and one 'Ranger' that is more tube/welded junk than Ford...
Two large and one small fishing boats,
Creek and river fishing, varmint hunting, LARGE shelter house with built in wood cooking facilities and a couple of pretty good sized 'Camp' fires to cook over/BS around...
Several guys showed up with wives/GFs but some of them went home when it rained, so it was getting pretty close to a 'Man Rut' by the time things were over!
We had one 4 year old boy that just LOVED the Jeeps, camping, fishing, ect. and especially loved it he didn't have 'Mommy' saying he couldn't pee in the woods, eat with his fingers, go 'Jeep Riding' (no 4 year olds on trails, but backroads were fine) and generally doing what little boys do! (no matter what the age of the 'Little Boys!')
Squirrel season was in, so there was game meat consumed,
Squirrel, turtle, ground hog, fish,
Plus lots of stuff like Smoked Ham knuckles & Bean Soup with sweet iron skillet cornbread,
Venison Chili, and 'Mud Hens'....
(If you have never had a 'Mud Hen', it's an entire chicken stuffed with lemon, butter and what ever (I like rice in mine), patted down with Cajun seasoning and more butter, wrapped in foil tightly,
Then packed in clay mud and dropped directly into the fire for slow baking...)
One chicken to a man! GOOD STUFF!
Most places we stop have 'Privy' or 'Out House', and several have shower houses...
The one we stay at most has shower house, outhouse and a good sized shelter house mostly built from 'Scrap' steel and native rocks, lumber sawed on site, so it kind of blends in with the surroundings.
We have electricity at some sites, so refrigeration is available, although not everyone can make ICE at once!
So we have to make Ice runs when we stumble across someplace that has ice... (BARS/Liquor Stores!)
All in all, it's a pretty good time...
SO! When are we doing that 'Land Between The Lakes' run?
