    If nothing else comes up, I can hike in on Friday after work and leave late Saturday unless I can get someone to work for me on Sunday. I'd be coming in from Pats. Is there any parking at Hopkins Prairie if I wanted to add a little extra mileage?

    Yes. Some small amount of parking is available just outside the gate at Hopkins prairie.

    This year we will also have Summer's Last Gasp Hang last weekend in September at same location. Let us know what you're missing by then if you want to make this hang.

    One day is better than none. Bring plenty of water or start at first light for starting at HP trailhead.

    I likely won't be able to make that one either. I have just the hammock, stove, and cookpot now and lack literally everything else (backpack, tarp, quilts, shoes, etc.). Plus my youngest is heading to UF in a couple of weeks lol.

    Funny story, not too funny.
    A few years ago for Summer's Last Gasp, I left my shoes at home since I was a soccer coach and was wearing cleats. I went straight to Ocala after the game. So I hiked in and out with my cleats. I found out that day that cleats were made for running on flat grass and not hiking through the woods.

    If you're still wanting to come out, you have the main ingredients in a hammock and food prep. Regular shoes are fine if they're running or walking shoes, just not dress shoes. We can probably fit you with the rest if you need. Most of us have a second pack or two if you need until you're properly fitted out.
    Enjoy and have fun with your family, before they have fun without you
