Follow the Midwest in Trips and planning. Look up and check in with Mule and that bunch. He's headed to Alaska shortly, but I'm sure he'd be glad to add you to the E-mail or call up list they've been putting together just for this.
Look for the Panther Creek, and Brown Hollow Threads, as well as the Hoosier Hang threads. You'll find Mule, and the gang there. The Spring Hang has past, but they'll soon be talking about the Fall hang, and you should make the effort to touch bases, and show on up. It just keeps getting better and better.
There should be plenty of chances to pick up a partner for a weekend or even a few days together during the week. They are a flexible bunch!
