Hello there... :}

Hi! My friends call me Bal (online, anyway) and I'm a gryphon therian and also getting into furry more and more now. I'm looking for furries that get out and do things now and then away from the keyboard, lol. I consider myself to be a master of 'ninja camping', as in camping for free in our national forests. Just solo camping so far, but I can be ME when I do this, and it's necessary to do it at least two or three times a year. I live in an area where 'fee-ing' has been piloted, apparently with great success. I defy this whenever possible, although sometimes when I camp out with others it's better to camp at a pay site where there are amenities - it's all good.

Seriously, I would LOVE to go to a camping furmeet. Maybe some networking on various forums would help generate some support. I'm on FA, and I might mention it in a thread on their forums.

Nice to meet you all!

Welcome!

In my hitchhiking travels, I had to do lots of stealth camping--and not just in parks. Under stairwells, on roofs, under bushes that hundreds of people walked by, in unused trucks in a U-Haul parking lot. It's amazing where you can camp if you try.

*nods* Been there, done that. Urban camping is a little bit sketchy. It is amazing to see just how many people are out and about after bar-closing time.

Oh, yeah. I've had people tell me about having their stuff stolen just a yard away while they slept!

Arocoun and I have had a few good clandestine campouts. I really miss doing that. Everywhere I go, I'm still on the lookout for good places to put up a tent where I won't be seen.

I'd love to do a furry camping trip. I've been to "howls" before, which are therian camping trips, basically. Those are a lot of fun. I'd like to do that again.

Welcome! :D

I run various camping furmeets for the locals here in Eugene, Oregon, the next one of which is in August, and I am planning a mini-camping con at a dormitory-style ranch next May (think Boy Scouts type housing). We plan on advertising it once we have the place reserved and the website set up. n.n

Seems you are in oregon too? Maybe you would like to join us. :)

Yes, I am in Oregon. I would love to join you:} Camping = good, especially on a reserved site where there will likely be a minimum of problems. (like people with cameras. grrr.) The camp minicon idea is great! Next May? Whereabouts are you looking to do this?
