    Default Mid Continent Get Together.

    Just trying to feel the situation out. Is there enough people in the middle of the country that would want to get together?

    I guess it depends on how many would be interested. I am about as mid continent as you get, and there are a few good place around here for a weekend camping trip or something of the sort. Yet I wouldn't be opposed to traveling either. Just not all the way to the coast.

    Ya that is true you and I are about as mid as possible.
    Mainly it depends on when.
    Hopefully there will be more responses to help set a date and so forth. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/popcorn.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/popcorn.gif[/img]

    I am interested. I live in nebraska. I know of another couple of cpf'ers in my area that would like to go as well.
    Maybe we could even get Lambda to come! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    I haven't really thought about a place yet or a time yet. Any suggestions?

    Would this be a camping trip? (which I am up for) If so do you have any good places in mind.

    I would like to camp as well, but I don't know of any places in desmoines, or omaha. I never go camping down there. There is a nice place in Onawa iowa to camp. I have been there a couple of times and it is a great camping area, if you like primitive camping that is. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    Well, there is car camping, and rv camping. Those aren't exactly "primitive". When I say "primitive" I mean, no bath house within reasonable walking distance, no snack shop nearby, it is primitive. If you need to "take care of bussiness" you have to do it in the woods.

    Be sure to see this thread for what looks like a good get together that is coming up in the Twin Cities. I'll be there.

    I like the idea of going to a flashlight convention. I was wondering if any of the mafor flashlight companies will be represented there? Or is it for collectors who buy and sell old antique lights?

    I'm planning on being at 2004 Flashlight Collectors Convention in Minneapolis, MN, May 7th & 8th.
    looks interesting if it's new or old lights.

    I might show up. I think it would be really interesting to see old and new lights.
