How was the Hoosier National Forest last weekend? I was really tempted to try and connect with your party but couldn't swing it. We should call an HF hang down there sometime soon...there are a number of HF people within 3 hour drive of there.
On your idea, you're right, I did think of it, and did it as well. Here's the thread.
This forum is so busy it is easy to miss things, particularly if you're away from it for a while. When I started on HF I would try to read everything, but these days I rely an awful lot on the title of the thread to determine whether I'll look.
