    I might be interested if the date you choose is in January -- cannot do it in December because of commitments.

    Please let me know when you choose a winter date. I'll be traveling up from the Ozarks, or down from Iowa, depending upon the date selected.

    Please move the mountain an hour or two west so it's easier to get to from KC. Not new location, move the whole mountain

    Camped out every weekend of October with the scouts. Nice to be home for a weekend or two but starting to get the itch to get back out there. Hawn is one of my favorite parks to visit and only about an hour from home. I've never been to trail of tears s.p. It's also convenient for me. Don't plan this around those locations, I won't know about my availability till closer to January. Last years Bell Mountain trip was Inticing but the temperatures and distance from the parking lot had me concerned. I've had a little more cold weather experience with my gear and would be more confident.

    Wetfoot310 I never see any southern Illinois hangs. Shawnee forest should have lots of places to hang. I've been advised against hanging at IDNR properties. Apparently you can get a ticket for hanging there.

    I'm interested if I can swing dates. It seams these things always end up when I have the kids, or a Scouting activity. I'd bring the kids but if it's too cold, I only have enough good gear for myself. It will just be luck planning around my schedule.

    I can't say I've encountered any problems in my time in Shawnee. Quite frankly, they don't have the people to enforce anymore. Sadly our state doesn't think it's a wise investment public lands, and reg inforcement was one of the first to go. I do normally choose wilderness outside of the state parks due to incredibly more relaxed regs and more consistency​ with most other land managers.
