    I think I've settled on Talladega National Forest. There's a place about 20 minutes off of I-20 that is only $3 a night. It's about 1.5 hr on this side of ATL. Might check out some trails while...

    Not that I remember.

    I'm seriously considering driving back this direction after the game and spending the night. If I make it to Birmingham, I'll get off at Hamilton and go hang at the Sipsey....
  3. Atlanta, GA>Dec 31-Jan 1, Peach Bowl!!!

    I'm trying to combine a hammock camping trip and Peach Bowl for New Year's.

    I agree that the return to Thompson TH on 208 is a nice way to finish up a trip. MasterStrapper and I used it for the first time back in January on our Big Tree loop. Easy walking, nice views in...

    I haven't been on those trails since last November. I didn't care too much for them, but I was stomping around before daylight with my headlamp. I found the trails to be a bit tough to follow with...
  6. AL>Sipsey Wilderness Area>December 12th-14th

    Sunny, High in the 60s... Clear, Low in the 40s! Are you kidding me? Less than 2 weeks before Christmas?!

    With that forecast, some of us gotta take advantage. I'm not a sure thing yet but I...

    The Sipsey is a special place. Definitely worth riding over and checking out one weekend. There were two HF hangs there this year. I'm sure there'll be one there this Spring. Great time to get in...

    Any idea who AHE uses to ship packages? If it's UPS, I'll be able to get mine as soon as my local driver picks it up. One of the perks of living in a smaller community.

    I finally made my mind up and ordered a Kick *** Quilt from Arrowhead Equipment. It's a red New River (3 season). Hopefully it'll be here by my Sipsey River kayak trip May 16-18.

    The trails at Clear Creek are for mountain bikes. I walked some of them but found them to be kinda frustrating b/c of all the switchbacks and such. I opted for an out-&-back to a nearby cove.
