I have nothing planned.
I'll be bringing Mrs. HomeMadeHiker and the little bun in the oven Friday evening.
Was a dedicated thread made?
Good for both prefer 17th. Gonna try to sneak over to the Ohio spring hang on the 10th.
I'm in for either date. Won't be able to make the HWH next fall though.
From the west is pretty cool but that map is wrong. The second campsite from the west (campsite 2) is nowhere near that marker.
It's about a mile east located on the 2nd to last northern loop.
I'm in! Fo shizzle!
Alright packed up and ready. So excited!!! Everybody have safe trips and I'll see you in a couple days.
Looks like I'll be in Thursday night instead , can someone update the spreadsheet for me?
Work is sending me to Chicago to visit some suppliers paying for gas, cutting my trip in two and getting me...
Vince my tummy has a crush on you.
The forecast is starting to make me sad. High of 35 and low of 15. We are getting close enough that these numbers might just stick :(.
On a related note I did a successful test run last night and...
No problem...I'll be sleeping In it!
I do... 11' ThunderBird 1.8 poly taffeta SL
Looks like a significant hike, a straight 10hr drive there puts me at the trail head about midnight. I don't think I want to do that hike at night tired and alone. I will likely post up around Eau...
Phone will only let me make a "note" can someone make the proper entry for me?
Wanted: 11'x 13" Diameter (~42" circumference) mesh or 1.1 Ripstop tube for my deep winter gear.
with channels on each end other than that nothing fancy don't really care about the color (just not...
I just finished 2 gallons of Creole stew for Saturday night meal . that's around 20 1.5 cup servings, I hope it's enough. And it is also a little on the spicy side but not enough to hurt anybody.
Ohh that's a good idea KC!
I'm thinking some alum angle with holes drilled it.
So will I need snow stakes? Do you folks use them and in how deep of snow are they required?
Oh I had my French axe as well . that just leaves friction fires
Had a blast, great weather, great company, great site! Great Hang!
Went well for the most part. My New wool blanket anorak was pretty awesome. And heavy enough even you BCUSA guys might lime it. Still have some work to do on my quilt suspension and tarp stakes but...
Had a great time fo sho!
After thumbs left a lazed around all day and finally left around 3.
Just curious, why are we concerned with bringing in water ? Isn't there plenty of snow all over the place up there? Or is melting enough for the group impractical?
Mrkr6 you gonna drop by this weekend? Sure would be nice to finally meet ya.
Heck I haven't even gotten that invite :) and I live just on the other side of town.
Weather looks a lot nicer for Saturday than I thought so I might just stay both nights.
Is anyone else planning on coming Saturday?
So really no need to pack the stove setup just cook pot or two.
Do stoves (alky) work ok or does cooking need done on a fire?
Excellent, thank you.
I think basically I'm just gonna have my 20*gear under my 0* both top and bottom, a Z lite pad, uqp and top cover for my sleep system.
Should have a wool anorak completed and...
Alright guys, should I supplement my full length 0* U/Q with a 3/4 or a another full length UQ?
I'll have a pad to supplement the feet. I'm leaning towards the 3/4 because it's better down and more...
Campsite 2 is at the northern tip of the 2nd loop (2nd from the east) and is not marked on your map.
Campsite 1 is the far west site icon on your map. The east site icon does not exist.
Sounds good, I plan to be at CS 2 by 5.
Where are you parking?
Sorry to miss ya Joe. I saw Davros V-day thread I plan on being there.
Weather looks nice for Friday but turns nasty in the afternoon on Saturday . Who's still in? I think if we bring some extra tarps and get plenty of fire wood early it might still be enjoyable.
Alright, so where are we parking. Where are we camping? What is the closest town? Any have some general directions coming form INdiana?
I would like to leave Thursday after noon from Fort Wayne (4...
Yes camp site 2. I've never seen it dirty as others have reported but it wouldn't surprise me. I wondered how long that old table would last, never occurred to me to asked for it to be...
Trail is decent but this is a heavily area so make sure you have lots of orange!
Blood Root Trail: Salamonie Res, North Eastern IN. Weekend of Dec 20th
Gonna head out for the weekend and test some gear before the FBH. Wanna join me?
Salamonie Rez in Mt Etna is about the closest overnight. I'm heading out in December (20th) if you got the gear for that.
Concerning food stuffs
What sort of items are common for snacks and "on your own" meals?
And how much or many would be prudent?
I doubt anyone would take issue with a little one around, but keep in mind beverages are prevelent, but any mischief is clean and kind hearted. Friday tends to be a little more rowdy than Saturday. I...
I think I'm in on this one and definetly open to carpooling with ya.
Gonna have to shore up me my gear for this one!
As a related side note, RiverJoe's squirrel stew is off the chain!!!
I'll be down sometime Saturday. Got a birthday dinner and show in Indy Friday night that I can't miss.
Also, I gonna bow out of running the gear drawing on this one.
Which thread is going to be "the" thread. I'm starting to get cornfused.
I'm in, but Last 3 weekends in Oct I'll likely have miss Friday night. Any chance of pushing out to November 8th?
