We will use the point system for this swap. You need to send a total of 4 points. So you could send 4 small, 2 medium, 1 large and 1 small, 1 medium and 2 small or any other variation that you can think of!!!

large = 3
med = 2
small = 1


We are also going to send a park review of your favorite camping hole and their favorite stuff in the area - it would be relatively easy to send a snail mail copy to everyone on the swap and the cost of a stamp.  You may include as much information as you like. Try to include favorite restaurants, thrift shops, fun spots in the local area. It should be formatted to fit onto a 4" x 6" piece of paper or into a 4" x 6" photo album slot. By keeping it a standard size, everyone can compile them into a book for future camping reference!One of the projects could be something to hold these (ie folder or such)... Check with your partner to see if they already have something before making a new holder/folder/album for them!!!

If you want to participate, information to send to organizers: both Selkie and woodland_faerie
Selkie is going camping 10 - 12 July while woodland_faerie assigns partners!!!

If you could wait until Wed when I put the questions up that would be great. But if you're going to be gone during sign-up go ahead and send in your basic info including kind of camping and allergies so I can partner you!

Thank you for checking first!

Oh, do you have any ideas on the points requirements (or whatever they're called) for this swap?  I'm going to Puerto Rico for a week in August and I want to make sure that I would have enough time... you know, in case this turns into a large swap!!
