    Texas Fall Group Hang 2010: November 12-14

    Let the planning for the Texas Fall Group Hang 2010 begin!

    Since all I have on my mind right now is getting out into the woods, and all that the season is providing is work, heat, mosquitos, and humidity, it's time to start thinking about fall.

    I have arbitrarily set the date to match last year's and hope that works for most folks and the location was a winner so I vote that we return to the scene of the crime, Fairfield Lake State Park.

    Realizing that I have absolutely no power or authority, dates and location are certainly negotiable but we gotta start somewhere to make it happen.

    As a teaser for new folks or nostalgia for those who have been before, check out the threads from last year:

    ... but wait, there's more...

    Okay, enough walks down memory lane, let's get started on the next memory. Who's in?

    Hey I'm totally down for that! My birthday is on the 18th of November, so it'll be an early birthday present to myself! Plus I'll finally have an excuse to get that yeti! Go ahead and count me in, I'm requesting off work right now!

    Too bad there aren't enough deer in Arkansas to last past opening weekend.

    We'd love to give you and your wife some Texas hospitality or at least hang with you next time we head east.

    Even though I'm in Florida, this sounds interesting. My daughter will be delivering a new baby around Nov. 1 in Austin, so I had planned a Texas trip in early November anyway. Maybe I can extend it and pick up my son from Texas A&M in College Station and we could join you.

    I need to do some planning now

    don't think I'll make this one. it'll be getting on in the semester and I'll be having deadlines.

    I am looking to visit Upland Island Wilderness in a month or so if anyone's up for some hot weather off-trail backpacking.
