It has always been my private conviction that any man who pits his intelligence against a fish and loses has it coming.

Turns out Red Moose, mi padre, has his own "hang" in the planning stage... there are a half dozen RVs that will get together, probably at an RV campground outside the Big Bend NP.
However, since we don't have a group (9 required... I count 7 or 8), is there any need to reserve a site? Instead, let's just head for the Chisos trailhead. The first one there can leave a trail of breadcrumbs...
OK, we are not going to a campground. So how far does everyone feel comfortable travelling the first day? I can probably be there around 3 PM on Fri. 4 PM with permit at the trailhead. Sunset is at 6:49.
I have to go to B'ham tomorrow to have some work done on my truck and thought I would run by Carto-Craft and see what kind of maps they have on Big Bend....Does anyone have a map of the Park?

I bought the Trails Illustrated Map by Nat Geo today. It seems to be a good map. thanks for the link to the hiking book Schrochem, I'll have to check it out.
