OVERVIEW

Pisgah National Forest in North Carolina is an East Coast outdoors gem, with world class biking, white water, hiking, and more. The leaves should be turning, so we’ll have incredible fall scenery as a backdrop for our weekend of camping. And, it’s under 6 hours from Cville, making it super feasible for Fall break. So, we are planning on taking biking groups (INT, ADV) and a hiking group for reading days. After each day of activities, we will meet up at our campsite and cook food together, perhaps have some beverages, and hang out around the campfire. Should be a great time.

This is the main Pisgah trip post, where we figure out logistics details and outline overall plans for the trip. We will have three trip groups: ADV MTB, INT MTB, and INT Hiking. Each of these will have its own post. Please make sure to sign up for BOTH the trip group you’re interested in as well as this main trip.

Food: We plan on having a shared food budget and grocery shopping in Pisgah for all meals. We will bring a grill and stoves to cook food on. To make this possible, we will ask for everyone to contribute $40. Any money left over will be split evenly between everyone. If you have any ideas for meals to make please let us know in the questionnaire.

By signing up for this carpool, you are committing to attending Pisgah. We understand that things come up, but it’s not cool to drop last minute and take the spot of someone who really wanted to go. If you absolutely have to drop (especially if you are a driver), you must contact one of the Max’s ASAP.

With this said, there will be flexibility in timing for departure and arrival back in Cville. As of now, we have a tentative schedule below. If you have any constraints on when you leave or need to be back, please note them in detail in the scheduling constraints question.

Tentative schedule (again, please tell us in questions what works for you):
12:30 pm Friday – meet at shrack to pack up
1:00 pm – depart cville, maybe quick adventure on the way down
7-10 pm – arrive at Pisgah campsite
Shred all weekend
2:00 pm Tuesday – be done packing up camp, head back to cville
7:30 pm – back in Cville, unload gear
8:00 pm – back at your apartment

You bring:
-Warm clothes & layers. It will definitely be chilly in the evenings. Bring quick-dry, non-cotton stuff. Be prepared for rain.
-Food: we will be doing dinners communally, but bring lots of trail snacks and maybe breakfast for yourself
-Sleeping bag and pad
-Headlamp
-Water bottles/camelbaks
-Tent/Sleeping system (we will make a groupchat to help coordinate this)
-Bowl and utensil
-Hiking shoes/gear: even if you’re signing up for a bike trip, we may take a chill group hike one day to break up the biking
-Whatever you need for your respective adventures; the Trip Leader will specify what gear they are bringing and what you are responsible for getting in the trip description

We’ll bring:
-Dinners: well, kinda. We’ll be grocery shopping in a local town
-Grill
-Camping stoves
-Water jugs
-Cooler
-Trowel/shovel (in case we have to go to a dispersed site one night)

As always, hit us up if you have any questions (click on our profiles for our phone numbers)
