    ++ This will be updated as details are set ++

    • Have you been on a Chuck Wagon run?
    • Would you like to participate in a limited size multi-night outdoor adventure?
    • How about exploring a new area?
    • Do you like hanging out a the campfire with friends?

    If you said Yes, Yes, Yes, Hell Yes, then you need to check out:
    <h5>Sometime in Late August or Early September, probably not Labor Day Weekend
    Event: Chuck Wagon 2017
    Coordinator (not host): Christian Dahlstrom
    Who can attend: Everyone willing to drive to the middle of nowhere, explore cool sites, and help with the cooking.
    Meeting Place: Arco, Idaho
    Time: TBD
    Distance: 227 Miles from Boise to the Campground

    • Thursday: Early group takes community items to the campground and prepares common area, then kicks back with a cold beverage
    • Friday: Meet at Craters of the Moon Visitors Center (104 mile round trip + 7 mile loop in park – 4 hours)
    • Saturday: Wood Canyon / Howe Peak (100 mile round trip – All Day)
    • Sunday: Mackay Mines (60 mile round trip – 4-6 hours) (some could head home following trail ride)
    • Monday: Pack camp and head back to Boise

    Limitations: The campground is limited to 15 vehicles (and 100 people?!?). However, there appear to be several other camp-type areas along the road near the campground.
    <h5>Let’s Do This</h5>
    p.s. I am not intending this to replace any Club Labor Day Camp Trip, plus, the site is already booked for Labor Day.
    p.p.s. I’m not proposing this as a fund raiser. The area is new to us, and we will need to explore. I expect each party that attends will contribute to the community events. We may do something pot luck-ish with common cooking areas. Still to be explored. It could just end up being a plain ole camp out.

    WE ARE IN !!!



    I would be in if the dates work out. I will keep a watch on this to see when you nail down the date.



    Was a blast the last time, we’re in too.


    Is this still going to happen? We would like to run the Mackay Mines trail but we probably couldn’t make the whole event.
