Now that I've agreed to this trip....what's the weather like that time of year? I'm guessing cool in the evenings and a likelihood of rain. Also, are the mosquitoes out in April?
SBreckenridge - we'd love to have ya! Rain is a definite possibility.
Well, if it's anything like Kentucky, and I will guess it is, you can count on chilly mornings and likely rain, but no mosquitoes yet, thank goodness.
"I fish because I love to; because I love the environs where trout are found, which are invariably beautiful... because, in a world where most men seem to spend their lives doing things they hate, my fishing is at once an endless source of delight and an act of small rebellion; because trout do not lie or cheat and cannot be bought or bribed or impressed by power, but respond only to quietude and humility and endless patience...." --Robert Traver
There is a great place to hang on the Wolf Creek Trail. It is a 16 mile trail along the Brookville Reservoir in Franklin County IN. The trail is not over used at all and is nice and rolling along the 23 mile lake. April would be a great time, it is a hour and a half south east of Indy.

I'll also be bringing a wreath for all my fallen friends that I've lost on this particular trail. It's going to be great! I can't wait!
If you want a serious reply: No skeeters, cold weather at night.
Slow is smooth, and smooth is fast.
I'm gonna try to make it. So what's the agenda on these hangs? Do you guys meet up, hike in, hang out, then hike to a new spot the next day and so on? Or do you come back to base camp so to speak? I love gettin out into the woods for some slow casual hikes just not sure what the group usually does.
I love to attend if my schedule cooperates! I've only backpacked once this past year... I'm sure I would learn a lot.
