REMINDER - Devmeet - Hart Springs, FL

Devmeet - Hart Springs, FL by Ahkward

www.hartsprings.com/camping.ph…

Where: Hart Springs, Florida

We will be hosting the meet in Hart Springs Florida. It is Southwest of Lake City, FL and west of Gainesville, FL. We will be meeting at the Tent/Primitive Campground entrance.

When: June 19th - June 22

The meet itself will begin at about 12 pm on Friday Jun 20th, and will last until sundown with the park closes on Friday the 20th AND Saturday the 21st. We are making this a two day meet just in case one of those days does not work out for you.

**However, if you wish, Tatchit and I will be camping out in the primitive camp, starting Thursday night. You are more than welcome to join us, in your own tent. The camp is 20$ a night. Tatchit and I will leave the morning of Sunday, June 22nd.

Who and What: Tatchit and Ahkward = Drawing awesomeness

Both Tatchit and myself will be there, and anyone is welcome to come. There are no pets allowed in the park where Tat and I will be, so please don't bring your dogs. We don't want anyone getting into trouble and getting kicked out.

All of us will have time for lots of activities. We all would prefer to go swimming, however at the moment, the springs are closed for swimming due to water levels. However, plan on it anyway! The weekend we host the meet, it swimming beach might open, so BRING YOUR tops and trunks ANYWAY. Better to have it and not need it, than need it and not have it, right?

If the swimming beach is closed, we have other activities in mind including cooking, hiking and of course drawing! I plan on bringing what artwork I have of Naor with me and giving everyone a preview. :D I also plan on bring lots of my own tools and bookmarks to draw on for those who want one. I can't promise everyone one, but I will if I have time.

eue I don't know what Tat is planning honestly, but I'm sure it's epic. :la:

Be sure to bring your own supplies and if you have any ideas for some fun, let us know and bring it anyway! NEver know, we might all make some fun out of it. :D At least bring something to write down the usernames of those you meet! In fact here is a list of things to bring.

- Camera
- Sketchbook / papers
- Drawing supplies
- Frisbees /other outdoor easily carried games / cards /
- Hats and sunglasses <- Protect your head and face from the sun please. ;-;
- Food for yourself and others in your party
- Tent / 20$ a night / sleeping bags / pillows/ flashlight/ bug repellant / etc, if spending the night on the grounds
- Water <--- I CANNOT STRESS HOW IMPORTANT THIS IS!!! Bring lots of it, Florida is very hot/humid you sweat out a ton of water and need it replaced. So drinking water is the best way to do so. We don't want paramedics joining us. No offense guys. e____e

Here is a photo map of the park from the road, you can see the primitive camp is right next to the Springs and is a little bit in from the road.

Do you have sunday off? I can still bring the artwork and just meet up with you on my way home. I can easily jump onto 75 and take that route home. Plus it'd allow me to take a break from the long 4 hour drive. XD

Why must I be scheduled to work then? I have that Friday off, but I work during the Saturday and Sunday. Unless I drive out Friday morning, and leave again that evening. 4-5 hours isn't that bad of a drive, is it?

Ahkward Featured By Owner Jun 10, 2014  Professional Traditional Artist
mmm, considering sundown is about.... what 7-8 pm? Not really if you stay a while. XD I mean, don't inconvenience yourself too much. ;-; Are you willing to drive that way and can you afford the gas is a good question too? I know 4 hours is a long drive. My drive is about 3-4 hours...

I would go...  because next time, I'm holding it down south near Miami or Fort Myers. Show them southers some love too.

I've made out and ins to Jacksonville plenty of times to know I can dig the drive. Just never been by myself before. But, doubt there will be another meet anywhere closer than this, so I'm gonna try make the drive. Plus, time zones work in my favor on the drive home, so Yay. Besides, I need a good road trip this summer.

haha Well then grab your camping gear and head on over. :D Like I said, it's 20$ a night and finding it could be a bi tricky. It might be easier if you get your own directions... I don't know if 75 would honestly be the fastest rout for you, since you are coming from the west side. XD  I only used 75 since it is the nearest major road. I look forward to meeting you.

Well, I'm sure I can find my way. Might ask you later on exactly where that is, since I've never been there. But if I drive out Friday morning and leave that evening, would I need camping things? I ask because I actually don't have camping gear aside from a sleeping bag.
