    Ha! SS wasn't able to make it this year, and he's usually the one that starts the trip report thread.

    I'll work up a recap, but the short answer is that it was very low key, and a nice relaxing...

    Site 8 is great for hammocks, and is set back a little away from the water (and everything else) so it's good for a little privacy.

    If you're just one hammock, and you want to be near the water,...

    Looks like it's going to be chilly, with the possibility of snow/sleet Saturday night, and maybe some rain later in the day on Sunday. Should be an adventure!

    I'll have a coffee press and coffee, a jet boil for boiling water, and some basic cooking supplies. I'll also bring an axe and bow saw.

    We've always purchased coffee for the Thanksgiving hang, not looked for donations.

    Yep. Batsto is about a 30 minute drive each way from Batona Camp. Atsion is probably 15 minutes tops. It's much more convenient when it's open to get permits and check in there.
