My schedule is still up in the air right now, but if I make it I'll most likely be leaving Hendersonville sometime Friday. I'm not certain what must haves you're referring to, if it's vehicle mods or camping supplies, but here's some of the things that I usually try to have.
Water (on avg a gallon a day)
Food
Snacks (for when you're on the trails)
Toilet Paper
Baby Wipes
Camp Chair for around the fire
Flashlight/lantern
First aid kit
Recovery points on your vehicle in case you need to be pulled out or pull someone else out.
Extra shoes and socks

I'm sure others could add to the list, but this will get you through most camping weekends pretty well.
That is a good list, and I encourage you to bring anything that you would typically take camping. I would not worry about vehicle modifications, there are plenty of great trails that can be driven in a stock 4x4.

Let's try to rendezvous at the South Welcome Station in Dover, TN at 12:30 PM on Saturday the 21st. Here are the coordinates for the welcome station: 36.520124, -87.917709. I plan on leaving Nashville at 10AM Saturday morning. PM me if you would like to meet up and caravan at that time.

So hey, Im on the north end of LBL nearly every weekend.May try to meet up with you guys for a day or maybe camp. Have a camp spot picked yet? Done a lot of the 300 series roads and Im pretty adamant about staying to the trail and not causing any more damage if possible. Lots of people come up here and tear up, drive illegal roads and make their own paths, not into that at all. Some roads have already been closed due to abuse. Being a local, not very happy about that at all. All that being said, I look forward to meeting you guys.

You're welcome to meet up if you get a chance! I grew up in the area and absolutely agree about respecting the resources, and being a good steward of what we have. I am familiar with some of the more recent road closures after a certain vehicle specific forum had a meet up there. I believe that the people here have a greater respect for the land, and aren't just looking to party and tear things up.

I’m still planning on being there. I can meet up in Nashville to caravan there also.

What do you guys use for comms? I still haven’t invested in any solution for that.
I like you am still looking into communication gear other than the old CB and Handheld walkie that is about my limit. Started up an interest in the Ham but that is totally new to me...

Same here. I have been planning to take the ham test, but I haven't really worried about comms as I don't typically go out with a group.
