    You all have a wonderful and SAFE time up there. Remember, if a hike seems like a bad idea, it probably is...I should know!

    Unfortunately, I won't be there, and I even have a 5-gallon bucket of BBQ sauce for the pony! This hang has typically been on the third weekend in...

    Good idea, Dutch, but my experience with the glow in the dark line-locs are that they aren't very bright, especially after a few hours of darkness. If you could find some beads or strips that were...

    I got off a little early today, and if it wasn't for the long drive, I'd be heading out there right now. I really need a nice relaxing weekend in the woods with some good friends.

    Weather is looking GREAT for this week! High 60's to the 40's and mostly sun, little to no chance of rain. I'll be there as early as Thursday, depending on some things.

    Little to no reception with sprint. I think some with Verizon may have found some coverage. Not difficult at all to find. You won't need a quad unless you are planning to bush whack.

    Weather was perfect, especially for the view from Hanson's Point. More than the usual crazy drunks out there making noise all night. It was a free pass weekend, so more crowded, like a holiday...

    I'm definitely thinking about trying to make it to this hang. It's a long drive from Cincinnati, though. I need to look into a car pool and to see if i can get the required amount of time off.

    Another plus about the hammock camping is that you don't have to share a tent with your brother!

    Glad to hear of the good times. Here's to many more.

    That is a good route, and will allow you to see some of the best of the Gorge in an out-and-back hike. If you had a way to...

    OK, thanks, 2Q. I'm hoping to get there around noon, so I'll probably have started hiking or even be there by the time you start.
