    I'm going to have to skip this one.

    Weather seems good for a winter hang.

    Unfortunately, life's keeping me busy and I need to stick around home.

    I'm also wondering if the flooding is affecting the trail or the site.

    And, for one more question (at present) - is the water at the campsite accessible year-round? (Other than the river/canal.)
