    Arrow Over Night Hang at Turkey Pen Gap

    Hangin' Burrito and I are planning an over night hang Dec. 12th on the South Mills River Trail at Turkey Pen Gap

    Some info and directions.

    Turkey Pen Gap is about 20 minutes South of Asheville, NC.

    The Turkey Pen trail-head and the South Mills River trail-head are 30 yards apart. Taking the South Mills River trail to the camp site is about 1.5 miles of relatively easy going on an old logging road. The Turkey Pen Trail is all itís cracked up to be. If you decide to take this route (~6 miles) leave yourself time. There is a 600í elevation gain in under ľ mile Ė ouch.

    We have been here several times and hiked the Small Turkey Pen Loop trail, which includes part of the South Mills River trail, last Friday. There is ample hanging room, a beautiful river, and lots of opportunity for short loop hikes as well as strenuous hikes.

    The intended campsite is at ~N35 20.287 W82 40.236

    All are welcome. I look forward to seeing as many as can make it

    I've invited my daughter and her friend... I may have a tent camping guest as well, but I won't know until later.

    Mac, it will be a pleasure to see you and your daughter again. (And her friend)
    I'm sure you'll have the insultex UQs up to snuff

    I have an extra hammock for you if needed.

    DD it will be great to see you too!!

    Due to time constraints, I cannot do Friday night but that shouldn't stop you. I can do a hit and run Friday afternoon. It's a safe place. We encountered several dogs last Friday. All were having a blast.

    When you see the road to the trail-head you'll understand. I told Hangin' Burrito the other day, "Bad guys wouldn't travel on this road!".

    It's UQs that I am short on... I have an extra hammock for Beloved's friend, Books. I guess I'll have to get right to work tomorrow night, after cutting a bolt from the roll of ex-Insults!

    BTW, Beloved wants a new trailname. She doesn't like Beloved. Would those of you who have met her please help her with a new trail name?

    Of course!

    I'll have to make it, though! Every one I have is going to someone else tomorrow!
