Be Prepared: Please be prepared to be self-sufficient. Have your own provisions such as first aid kit, food, water, extra clothing for unplanned weather, etc. Have your EMERGENCY CONTACT SHEET completed and in your backpack; it may save your life, and help reach someone who greatly cares!
Pace: There may be activities when the group is either slower or faster than your current ability. Please know that because this is a group activity, it's hard to accommodate everyone's pace perfectly. Our desire is not to leave anyone, however there have been times when it is in the best interest of all to split up. Please do your part by knowing your own abilities, communicating with the organizer head of time if you would like to start early and have us catch up or fine with finishing on your own.

Don’t have a tent, sleeping bag or mattress?  Don’t worry, I have extra tents, sleeping pads and bags.

Join us for a relaxing time camping (or rent a rustic cabin) in Shenandoah National Park just 2 hours from DC and 2-1/2 from Richmond!  Bring your marshmallows, graham crackers and chocolate for s'mores.  Wake up to the smell of bacon cooking in the crisp mountain air. 

We’ll be camping at Lewis Mountain Campground, just off Skyline Drive, Mile Marker (MM) 57.  There is a camp store for showers, food and snacks so this isn’t primitive camping by any means!

Camping fees are $15/night per site so it will be divided by numbers of attendees each night. 

This is a first come-first served campground so I won't know the exact campsite until I get there but will post it to all attendees once I have the campsite.  I'll have a 2018 Burgundy Honda Ridgeline and a Rockwell Roo camper

Driving directions to the location and spot to meet at:

User your favorite map app to find the campground.  Search on Lewis Mountain Campground, Skyline Drive, Stanardsville, VA. Google Maps works great for that address.

I’ll text/email the exact campsite to all attendees
