• US Camp Facepunch: SouthEast Edition
    225 replies, posted
So after much deliberation in [URL="http://www.facepunch.com/threads/1152868"]This Thread[/URL] I have decided to go ahead and attempt to start the first annual US Camp Facepunch: SouthEast Edition. [B]Date:[/B] This will occur May 20-25. 6 days of camping goodness starting Sunday morning and ending Friday night. [B]Time:[/B] I'm not going to set an actual time until we agree on a location, but plan on being at the campsite early to mid morning (Betwen 7am and 10am Sunday morning) and leaving mid evening to early night Friday (between 7pm and 10pm Friday night). Naturally it depends on your transportation when you actually arrive and leave, especially if you come by plane, train, or bus. [B]Location:[/B] [url=http://gastateparks.org/MagnoliaSprings]Magnolia Springs State Park in Central Georgia[/url] [b]What we're renting[/b] For $300 per night, we can rent a Dormitory with either a 16 person cottage with a kitchen or use of the dining and kitchen facilities attached to the Dorm. Dormitories: -Fits up to 50 people in bunk beds -Either Kitchen is stocked with cooking utensils and pots and shit. Bring your own food. -Get use of either attached dining hall and kitchen OR 16 person cottage with smaller kitchen and porch/dining room OR: 16 Person Cottage for $135 per night. Sleeps 16 people in bunk beds with a kitchen and dining room/porch. We can add an extra 6 person cottage for another $100 a night to make it $235. -Fits 16 people in bunks in main cottage and up to 6 people in the smaller cottage -Self contained kitchen with pots pans and cooking utensils Both of these options include hot showers, activity areas, swimming, etc. Linens are not provide so bring your own sheets/blankets/pillows and the deposit is one night's stay, then we pay the rest when we get there. I asked about the Pioneer camping but that didn't sound like something we want. There is NO hot water there. Only pit toilets and cold water showers which may or may not be turned off in May. We need at least 20 people DEFINITELY coming to rent the Dormitory. Otherwise we'll be renting the 16 person cottage and if need be the additional 6 person cottage. This is happening. Fill out the google document I posted in the OP and PM me whether or not you are DEFINITELY coming. Cost of renting this shit will be split up evenly. [B]Rules and Restrictions:[/B] I know that you all don't want to hear about rules, and that you just want to have fun, but there needs to be some framework at least for this to not devolve into a chaotic shitfest that gets some [sp]all[/sp] of us in huge trouble. SO. •You must be 18 to attend - I'm sorry, but I don't want to be legally responsible for anyone else, and I'm sure no one else does either. •No Illegal Drugs/Narcotics - I'm a pretty laid back guy, but for fucks sake don't bring it. NONE of us want to get arrested for possession/accessory. Nothing in a grey area either [sp]salvia[/sp] •Alcohol - If you're 21, you can drink. If not, you can't. Not even if you're 21 next week. The police don't care and neither do I. If you bring it, do [I]not[/I] give it to anyone underage. •Respect the rules of the park - I'd like to make this an annual thing, which will be hard if we get ourselves kicked out of every park we go to. •Do not bring past grudges/hatreds/feuds/etc from the forum to the camp. No one wants that kind of drama. If you can't set it aside, don't go, or don't associate with the person. •Do not do anything illegal. It's pretty simple. If we need to explain what that means to you, you can't come. •Generally just don't be a douche. [B]Price:[/B] Dormitory - $1,500 split between 20+ people -At most, $75 per person -Ideally, $65-$50 per person, as low as $30/person if we have 50 Both Cottages - $1,175 split between 16-20 people -At most, $73 per person -Cheapest, $60 per person One cottage - $675 split between up to 16 people -At most, $50ish per person -Cheapest, $45 per person [B]Sign up Sheet:[/B] [URL=https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/embeddedform?formkey=dHl2MmVkMTdyZnAwN2lpby1rckVYWEE6MQ]Click Here to fill out the Sign-Up Form[/URL] [B]Possibly Attending:[/B] •Daijitsu •barttool •skynrdfan3 •dbk21894 •meepugh •Bonzai11 •venn178 •Llamaboy9 •Chubbles •Doctor Zedacon •laxplayer77alt +1 •Edthefirst •Euphorium •Saza •Treybuchet •Bredirish123 •Whitefox08 •UncleJimmema •SpaceGhost I am expecting at least 15 people to come to this based on the amount of people in the South-East United States from the other thread. [highlight]15 people is not the limit. I will add more slots up to 50 people if it is required.[/highlight] [B]Definitely Attending:[/B] 1. Ven Kaeo 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. 15.
ah man, I'm not sure if I'd be available to make such a long trip on short notice, but I'd like to help out with this if I'm available. Put me down as "maaaaaaaaaaaaaaybe", and that's stil like, if someone buys me a plane ticket out to florida to join y'all or something. :v:
If it's in florida, there's a high chance I could go! put me down on maybe. [editline]12th January 2012[/editline] though, ten people is too little, I'd say minimum 15 people.
It probably will be. From what I recall most of the SouthEastern FPers are from Florida
if its in MS i'll go
I want to come!
Added to the list.
Count me in as maybe, not sure if I can afford to go.

[editline]12th January 2012[/editline] though, ten people is too little, I'd say minimum 15 people.[/QUOTE] I'm just expecting at least 10. I'll add more up to 25. Anyway looked over your form submission. Didn't realize you were coming from Panama. No chance you can bring a bigger tent?
Same thing as barttool, if it is in Florida there is a pretty high chance I can make it. Jot me down as maybe.
I am from NC, I am down.
Hm. A lot of NC punchers down here in the southeast.
I wish I could see who voted NC
there's more in the north west-east
[QUOTE=The First 11'er;34170580]there's more in the north west-east[/QUOTE] So start a NorthEast FP Meetup. This is specifically geared for people in the Green/Orange states. If you're outside of that area, start your own meetup or make the trip farther south. Please don't vote on the northernmost state in the list and inconvenience FPers actually in the target area just because you don't want to go farther south.

No love for Californians. Whatever I'm not 18 so I couldn't go anyways.
[QUOTE=barttool;34170702]I put that because I don't even have a tent, I would have to buy it, and if I go I'm planning on doing that when I get there[/QUOTE] Alright. Well we might have limited space so wait before you buy a tent and see if you can't share with someone who's bringing a larger tent. I'll be bringing a 3-4 person tent so I'd have room for a couple of people.
Might be able to do this. Florida has amazing parks we should do it in Florida.
I live in Georgia, I'd more than likely come so put me down.

How dare you include Pennsylvania as part of the "South East." I want no part in the South.
Just reread the OP. Fort DeSoto is like an hour away from me. Let's do that. I'll bring at least two people with me, I think.
I'd go to NC (I'm in NoVA), but your dates are in finals week. Push it back a week and I'll go.
if its in georgia i might come
I'll see about moving the date forward a bit. [editline]11th January 2012[/editline] [QUOTE=CrispexOps;34171564]How dare you include Pennsylvania as part of the "South East." I want no part in the South.[/QUOTE] Shhhhh
i think late may would be better especially for anyone in college as most colleges/universities get out around early may
Really? Strange. My college lets out April 27th.
It can't be Alabama. They told me they don't want me in Alabama.
11:41 PM - Streptovsky: I am not going to be legally responsible for a minor. 11:41 PM - Streptovsky: End of story 11:41 PM - Streptovsky: I'm going camping to get to know FPers and relieve stress, not to worry about if I'm going to be responsible for someone. 11:41 PM - *Erp: then don't be 11:41 PM - Streptovsky: I won't 11:41 PM - Streptovsky: Because you're not coming op is being mean to me :(
