    I'd be happy to have you along Muskrat.

    as for the DO, if I could have snuck it in to one of the other packs...

    I sometimes take an Outback Oven and bake a big cookie. White Choc-macadamia nut is my favorite. Saturday evening, around the fire, I was wishing I had.

    That is my favorite area in SC. I have done the whole trail from Burrells to HWY 28, but I have yet to go North towards Ellicot's Rock. PM me if you ever head back up that way. I am always in for a trip up there... Well at least I will be when I'm done with school Dec 12

    There are some areas near the bridge at the East Fork of the Chatooga that would easily support several hammocks. It's a 30 minute hike from the trailhead. I think we need to start looking at a group hang.

    I will be there the 26th through the 29th... most likely somewhere between lick log falls and hwy 28. Think I am going up there this weekend to wonder around for the day. May scope some sites and put up a video next week
