The members of Arkansas Back Country had our first meeting today.  It was in one of the member's backyards, under a trap (haha, yeah we got rained on).  The afternoon was a fun time of hanging out, swapping stories, and the usual banter about gear and the like.  However, not only did we have good company and conversation, the food was amazing.  After everyone had finished eating, there was a few minutes of comical silence as everyone weighed taking a nap due to a full belly, or to keep on talking and getting to know new friends.  All in all, the day was a great success.  We got to meet fellow hikers, match faces with names (screen names), and start talking about future trips that we'll be taking together.
