    Ozark hang

    I know that there has been talk of a March Ozark hang for this year. My wife has been asking when it is so that some other trips and the calendar can be planned. I told her that there has not been a discussion about it yet, so I'm starting the discussion so the dates can get set.
    You would think that two retired people would not need to schedule three months in advance.

    Edit: looks like March 11-13. Thanks for the quick reply SmokeHouse.

    WB,,, I was just typing it up and noticed you had something already up. Could someone please put the Date of March 11-13 on Thread... thanks.

    It’s the 1st of the year and time to see who is interested for another Arkansas Ozark Hang. We are camping again at Kyles Landing on the Buffalo River with lots to do. Many water falls in this area to hike to, floating the Buffalo River, hiking the Buffalo River Trail or just hang around at camp. The date will be March 11-13. I will be there March 10 and can stay through the 14th for anyone staying longer. Hope to see you there.

    Yippee!!!! I've got it on the calendar.

    Thanks for organizing this again. It was an awesome affair last year.

    Yes Alan, and according to this trivia nut, of the 38 I calculate on the list, (30 "for sure" and 8 "possibly"), over 25% are from the Republic.

    Other trivial trivia...

    It looks like we'll have floaters, fishers, fire tenders, and hikers ... I am looking forward to at least 3 out of 4 of those. (the fish are safe with me around)

    We have potentially 9 states represented.

    At least two folks have teased about cornbread

    One will be packing a small forest and beans

    And several folks may be coming prepared for 1 tree and no tree hanging. The stand show and tell should be interesting.

    I'm really looking forward to seeing everyone there, learning a bunch, eating too much, and relaxing.

    I actually have +2 with me. Will the road into Kyles be accessible by minivan? I think that will our only option for 3 + gear. Will there be enough trees? Any advise on what I need to bring since this camping area is new to me.

    I'm lacking in the floating department, mainly as I'm not sure how comfortable I'd be with one on my car so haven't looked hard to find one. Not sure what the local laws are on fishing either, so fish are probably safe from me too (not buying an out-of-state license for a weekend). About 95% sure I'll make this one though at this point .

    I am putting those dates on my calendar!

    Due to our spring break dates, if we are able to make it, we'll do like last year... pick up my teacher wife from school Friday when the kids hit the parking lot and head north. Most likely will be there around lunchtime or shortly after on Saturday.
