    The Penny, The Doctor and a chickenwing on the Chatooga River

    With the birth of our third child closing in quickly on us and projects around the house in dire need of completion, it was looking like this trip was going to be the last trip for a while, so I had to find a pleace that was worthy of the last trip of the Season. Did I want to paddle the Edisto or do some hiking and fishing along the Chatooga? With the Chatooga river being the backdrop setting to one of the best romantic comedies of all times, it really was a simple choice. Not only that but the Edisto River is really HOT this time of year.

    With a plan in place we (me, Penny - the dog, and the "The Doctor" - a friend from church) set out for the Chatooga River. With schedules being as they are, we were not able to pin down a good weekend until the second weekend in June for the "LAST TRIP OF THE SEASON", or at least the last trip for a while with out the kids . On Friday, June 10, 2011 we loaded up the truck and started on our 2+ hour voyage.

    The full report is HERE with pictures. (link fixed Thank swampfox)

    Because "The Doctor" was new to hammock camping, set up was an exercise in the basics of site selection and tarp/hammock set up. Even with the tutorial, our tarps and hammocks were up in no time and we were able to start relaxing around the fire. Dinner that night was steak and potatoes, The steak was thin cut ribeye grilled satay style directly over the coals while the potatoes were boiled over the open flame of the campfire. The sound of the river and a distant thunder storm lulled us to sleep the first night.

    It was a wonderful weekend.
