In the hunt for an informal camping club with no annual dues and no actual meetings except for actually going to campouts? Check out the Vagabonds, which is now seeking new members.
While there are no planned activities, members do sometimes get together to play cards or games or horseshoes. And they share a love of the outdoors, good conversation, fellowship and roaring campfires.
A schedule for upcoming campouts for the second weekend of each month, March through November, is being compiled now. For March, the group is looking for a campground out of the mountain area that has an indoor room for use by the group. Otherwise, campgrounds chosen are generally within 100 miles of Franklin, in states bordering North Carolina.
Each participant receives a camping schedule and makes their respective reservations.
