    Default Is there a SoRuck event this weekend?

    I'm last minute heading out in the morning for an AT weekend and thought there was a SORUCK gathering. I've always wanted to attend but can't find reliable info.

    NOT atNOC this time. Drive almost out east to Vogel SP, Georgia, almost directly across from Neels Gap Outfitters.

    Due east, then slant right to Blairsville, Georgia.! Shelly and all the other attendees will be delighted to have you join them

    I am sitting jealously wishing I could just go, but Boulder, Colorado is a bit far this time.

    Is Sly not involved this year?
    Why did they decide to move it to Vogel State Park? Does Vogel have cabins?

    I believe Sly bowed out last year. Vogel was chosen primarily for financial reasons.
