I am interested in an overnight hike. I have a bunch of new equipment to evaluate: North Face tent, Camelback BFM pack, Katadyn water filter, and my home-made pepsi can stove. Plus I have some Mountain House freeze dried meals and some MREs that I want to taste test.
I'm thinking a simple visit to cabelas (as was first suggested) would be easiest... I'd really like to see this event happen. Did anyone ever get prices on what it would cost to use a small hotel confrence room?
How about a time frame of mid january - as to avoid as many holiday related conflicts as possible.
