Loc: Spring, Texas
In the 32oz Nalgene bottle contest thread the idea for an ETS gathering was brought up. So let's see what people think. Start off by suggesting your top three states for this bangmoot and and the number of nights you could spend there.

My Choices of states:
1. New Mexico
2. Colorado
3. Arizona

Number of nights at the event (not including travel time):
two for sure, maybe three.

I didn't pick Texas because there isn't actually much open public land here, we'd have to meet at someone's property. I'm pretty much open to anywhere though.

Even I would try to make it to something like that.

I'm planning a trip to the Philmont Scout Ranch in New Mexico next year, so that would be my choice. Otherwise, Massachusetts is a little out of the way for most people.

2 days.

Arizona would be good, Nevada too, maybe even Wyoming, which is something like 85% public land...

Honey, can I go halfway across the country to spend a fews days in the woods with a bunch of strange men I met on the internet? What's that? You break up when you yell into the phone that loud... oh, ok... Yes Dear.
