Thanks, bigbamaguy, aboyd, Syb, Pappabear, Shug, Southmark, obmit, MAD777, & Buffalo Skipper, I have a friend on here, Squidbilly, and mezcal works with me. I first hiked the Odum in 1971. Made the trek 6 times by 1973 when my father died on the trail. Squidbilly & myself retracked some unused parts of the old OST last month. It was a good experience to be back there again.
I enjoy making some of my own stuff. I'm getting pretty good at alcohol stoves. I also can sew so making some of my own gear is not out of the question.
I feel like I know Shug from watching all his videos.
I'll be watching for a spring hang.
We are planning a paddling trip down the Suwanee River in FL for March. 2 or 3 nights on the river. I will be hanging on this trip, Should be fun.
