    Default Rucks

    Hey, how about a Christian Ruck?

    Any of you brother and sisters here in the Lord want to have a Christian Ruck some where along the trail?

    I'm game for organizing one, let me know...........

    Wonder if there are any Christian camps near the AT - one of those would likely be the ideal environment (would have chapel, Bibles, etc.) and would likely love to see the facilities used for such a get together in their 'off' season.

    It would be great if we could get Jars of Clay to play. But I thought if I could get a hold of Circuit Rider and Sherlock, I know those two would probably be interested in this and Preacher dude too.

    There has to be some small Christians retreats near the trail. I know there some near Ashesville. I just can't name them offhand.

    Try Google.

    Bear's Den Hostel would make a good place and you have Queen Diva as caretaker.

    The Blueberry Patch would be ideal.

    Actually I bet that the Poteats would love the idea of a Christian Ruck. Not sure if the place is big enough. I would be interested.

    I heard CedarMoe was talking of setting one up down south somewhere....don't know if he ever did. If anyone stays in touch with him, could let him know about this thread....may be a good way to put the word out.
