These are some of the pictures from my Hoodlums campout last weekend in Virginia.

 

Saturday afternoon. Friday was chilly and damp.

Kelty Noah tarp, Eagle's nest hammock, Thermarest pad. Fleece blanket. Saturday I added a mummy bag. Much better.

Dutch Oven Country chicken. Too many people, too few Dutch ovens, one large hill to schlepp. Used aluminum baking pans.

Watching Steve dig up wild onions. You get a sense of how steep the hill was we had to cart gear up and down.

Did the ladies do the now famous Ron Hood "two fingered lip pinch"? (ask Ron he can explain it better than me)  :P

What great pics, Muddy Pete!  It looks like you had a wonderful time.  :yes:

 

I love the cast iron kettle.  I'm slowly adding to my cast iron collection for camping.  I love cooking in my big skillet.  I haven't been able to find a big kettle though.  I'll have to check the flea market for one.

Pete, whereabouts in my lovely state are ya' havin' this get-together?

 

I live down here in the Southwest corner of the Commonwealth, but my Mom and brother have the east coast covered, so can vacation pretty much anywhere in between.

 

Might drop in on yer group if I ain't missed it already?

Old reliable Kelty Noah's tarp. I forgot the Thermarest pad and had a few cold points.

Knife porn. We beat the crap out of both the TOPS and Buck Hoodlum Blades and they both performed flawlessly.

~ Great Pics Muddy! Looks like y'all had a good time.  :thumbup:  I love the woods up there! Not so much underbrush, and creepy vines, and Green stuff everywhere...  :unsure:  Looks like a fun place to camp.  :yes:

 

thanks for sharing with us.  :thumbsup:

Thank you for posting the pics, Muddy Pete!  I love the knife exhibit!  :grin: 

 

Isn't it fun going camping and hiking with other people and learning new things?  And sometimes teaching somebody else something they didn't know!  :yes:

My first attempt working with You-tube.

 

I'd made this video at the 2009 Virginia campout. Behind me is Steve's driveway and house. The kitchen and cook area are down at the bottom of this hill which is named Darn Hill. Then we had to cross a little stream and go up the other side (Dang Hill) to reach the camp area at the top. 

 

 

Downstairs in the hollow. Cross that and on up Dang Hill.  :thumbup:
