    CAMPERS - (Johnathan Swift Tnet Campout, Oct. 9-10)

    Hello All! 09/07/2010
    Just wanted to let everyone know! For those of us who will be camping on Friday Oct. 8th, at the "Johnathan Swift Tnet Campout" event, we will all be meeting at the parking lot/rest area just off the Mountain Parkway, at the Slade/Natural Bridge Exit No.#33, on the south-side of the highway. We will meet from 10:00 A. M. to 1:00 P.M., don't be late or you may miss everybody. . Directions/map will be available at parking lot if you are late.
    After everyone shows up we will proceed to campsite. A "Park Pass" is required to camp in the national forest, 1-day pass/$3.00, or a two-day pass/$5.00. Campsites are close to parking lot so they will be easily accessible for all to setup and camp. If you have any questions, etc., post a thread or email me at Atrail4me@msn.com.

    Sincerely,

    The Swizard....Bill Neff

    Below is a topo of our camp area on Tunnel Ridge Rd.
    Nevermind the box on the right side of the topo....

    Once there we will set up camp and then for the ones who wish we can get together and plan a hike, to either a nice cave that's close or Rock Bridge. We can decide at the event.

    Gorge Maps will be available, and dont forget to bring your tent........

    The purpose of this map is to get everyone familiar with the camping area and directions, you can save, copy or print this map...
    Hope to see everyone there, and a Big Thanks to The Swizz for helping.... -Ki-

    New! Caves in the Red River Gorge are closed to visitors
    All caves on the Daniel Boone National Forest are closed. This closure applies to subterranean caves and abandoned mines. Cliff faces and rock overhangs will remain open unless otherwise posted as closed. This closure is part of an effort slow the spread of white-nosed syndrome that has been attributed to the death of an alarming number of bats. The closure is expected to last for at least one year. Violators may be fined.



    I found this on the Red River Gorge website. What is white nose bat syndrome?

    white noise bat syndrome is a fugis that effects the bats sleep, in the winter months here there is no bugs for them to eat, which they starve to death. its safe to humans.
    I learned that all caves where closed last week, which is a big bummer... but there are caves they are unaware of out there.

    Caves are being closed because it appears the disease is helped to spread by humans exploring caves and carrying it from one cave to another.

    Does the closing of the caves and mines affect the event?
    Is everyone welcome? I have been away from the forum for a while and just discovered the event.
