    Lightbulb Oklahoma Hang, April 15-17, 2011

    OK Folks, OldGringo, Hornman and I have decided to show up April 15th (Tax Day) at the Billy Creek Recreation Area, off Holson Valley Rd in Muse, OK 74949. As far as I know this would be the First HF Hang I've seen, so please join us if you have a mind or even if you don't, we still like meeting fellow hangers or grounders that are still searching for the light .

    We're still enjoying our road trip following the great time we had at the Ozark Hang and ready to go out again. The dates look good at first glance but I need to check on a few things back home before fully committing.

    So it seems like you got the bug Curtis Good for you!!!

    Put me down as a "maybe". I'd love to make it but we're really short-handed at work and its a busy time of year. Are you staying through the weekend?

    Really enjoyed meeting you at Kyles.

    The road goes ever on and on Down from the door where it began. Now far ahead the Road has gone, And I must follow, if I can, Pursuing it with weary feet, Until it joins some larger way, Where many paths and errands meet. And whither then? I cannot say.

    That's a beautiful area. I spent this past thanksgiving on the ouachita trail. The first day back home I was already trying to figure how to get back up there.

    Billy Creek is a beautiful little jewel of a piney woods campground...home of some of my best memories. I can't wait.

    How does fried fish sound?

    Will use this as a "fall-back" in case can't make the Tx hang on the 2nd-3rd. Being a modern day Al Bundy makes it a challenge to coordinate everyone's schedule. Though the wife thinks this is a better option. Would love to do both and meet everyone; just doesn't seem to be an option.
