I haven't chimed in yet because I couldn't be sure about making it. Chances are I wo't do an overnight but I'll definitely be there for at least one day. Thanks Tim for taking the time to arrange this whole shindig!!

Hey Roger, what time are we leaving? Does this mean I'm driving again? Do I have to Carry your bags again, too?

Oh and I'll have the new Olight X7R by then but that one's not for sale though lol

Wish I could be there I made the first one and haven't been back since. Life happened my baby boys have grown up a bit they are 17 and 15 now and there are many things going on one is an Eagle Scout and the younger is working on his so camping is something I have been doing a lot of since I'm the Scoutmaster of our troop. It would be a 204 mile trip for me. I still remember Data's TeePee that we hung out in at that first one :) I believe we have an overnight with the troop that weekend on the Appalachian Trail. However if things change I will be there.

Hi Chris - It would be great to see you again! Do you still have the Harley with that cool little camper trailer?

You always do have cool stuff... and I always seem to buy something :) I'm glad you are bringing the X7R! I've been wanting to check that out.

I do. It now has almost a quarter million miles on it. Was my bike wearing a sidecar when I was there? I don't remember if I had attached it yet.

OK everyone, it's official. I spoke to the guy I have dealt with in the past at Dorcy, and he said sure, he is happy to send us some more stuff for our upcoming FCW-13 event!

So once again, Dorcy steps up and supports our events! They have given us litterally thousands of dollars worth of lights and batteries for past PF and FCW events. THANK YOU DORCY!

He mentioned that Dorcy just bought the company Life+Gear. He is sending some of the Life+Gear stuff too, which is great because they have some cool stuff! I would put a link to the Dorcy website, but since that is a no-no here on CPF, I'll just suggest that you check out dorcy.com when you can - you will find the link to the Life+Gear stuff right at the top of the home page for Dorcy.

That's so great to hear I always enjoy putting a new Dorcy through a few cells.

This FCW is shaping up nicely. How many people are committed for Thursday evening? Do we have enough room for them? Do we need another Thursday night campsite?

Hi Stan, Yes this FCW should be great! We have several people coming in on Thursday night, but no worries, we have plenty of room for everyone, and I'm not worried about going out of the boundaries of the Thursday night site - we should be fine with that. :)

Tim, whatever happened to Milky Spit and his gatherings?[/QUOTE

Hi, Milky is still around, and still hosts the occasional PF, but they are not as frequent as they used to be. The FCW's spawned from the PF events, and are perfect for the Flashaholics who also love camping, knives, and all the fresh air and outdoorsy stuff and gear that goes along with camping. And now the FSM events will be yet another option for us Flashaholics to get together! Obviously the underlying theme of the FSM is a Flashaholic Swap Meet - but it is really just another Flashaholic get together as well.

I'd really like to attend, but the rules say "no jerks". :sigh:

Recently took a Fri/Sat off from work, and am not able to again so soon, but I'd LOVE to meet up with all youse peeps again. Saw some of ya' at Scout's get-together last year, and met a bunch of new, super cool folk there, but many I haven't seen in 5 1/2 years since PF18! Absolutely cannot believe how fast the time has flown by. Gotta' make either the next FCW, or whatever else happens.

Have fun, ya'll! Looking forward to the pics. Don't use photobucket... haha.

bummer! can't make this as it falls on the Jewish Holiday!

thanks for the invite and enjoy!

Is that why they call it a holiday? What's more holier than walking into the light. I bought my son a Nintendo switch for his birthday and hopefully the family will skip a party on the 23rd so I can make it
