I can't believe I can't make this!
This developed while I was in Africa, but I think there's at least a few members on this forum that are making this. Helping to raise awareness. I know this is timed right around several other events.
I'm definitely attending every year starting next year, since it's in my backyard.
When: September 27th – 30th 2012
Where: Crawford’s Camp just outside Murphy, NC
