    No and no. Last year for the BBA, most everyone camped at White Pines (see below). The previous year, was Prospect Mountain (see below). Both areas have limited cabins available.

    I posted the announcement early this year so you all have plenty of time to choose which campground you'll invade!

    I like the Saturday sign-up option, that will make Sunday morning less hectic.

    Trucks work good for this when it's too damn cold. That's what I did a few times during last years BBA route planning phase.
