Camp Creek Bald Fire Tower Repeater Site Maintenance Party –  Leaving Saturday, September 15th 9:30 AM

Will depart from Hardees on Asheville Hwy around 9:30 am. ( Approximately 1 Hour Travel Time to the fire tower) If you wish to eat breakfast the suggested time to meet is around 8:30 am.  Saturday morning always has a large crowd at Hardees.   All are welcome to attend.   Due to the extreme road conditions of the last 3/4 mile to the fire tower, do not attempt to drive any vehicle with low ground clearance farther than the paved road where the ski lodge used to be.  There is a graveled parking area available.  There should be plenty of vehicles available if you need a ride.   Bug spray, water, and snacks are encouraged.  Also be aware of snakes! There are no restrooms other than trees. Access to the fire tower requires a 150 ft walk uphill and then climb 2 flights of stairs.  If you are not in good physical shape, take your time and watch your footing on loose rocks, especially when leaving!
