    I'm miffed about the weekend

    My poncho/groundcloth can be made into a ghillie suit with the addition of just three more blades of grass

    I hear the poncho is much stealthier when covered in mud?

    My tactical hiking technique presently involves more face planting. I have to be careful not to let anyone water it after it has been planted.

    Attendance List


    We have a few days to go till the Horse Creek hang July 15-17 2011. This is the list as it stands so far:

    YES



    wisenber -late Friday afternoon

    Roche -Friday morning

    AcesWild -Friday afternoon

    MedicineMan -late Friday afternoon

    photojag


    Crawldaddy +1 -(arriving Thursday?)




    Maybe

    SteveToTheO







    I've put everyone under "maybe" until you let me know I need to put you under "yes". As we get closer I'll need to try and get all of your projected arrival times. Its getting closer, so reserve your trees now!!

    Spamburglar had an invitation he could not refuse to work this weekend, so that puts this broken toed hangar as the new "honorary host".
    If you folks know when you might try to be there, please let me know. If anyone needs help or directions, just PM me.

    Looks like the weather will have lows in the upper 50's and the hottest will be in the low 80's. We'll be about 1000 feet above that forecast, so subtract about 3 degrees for the campsite. Those making their way to the AT will want to shave another 6 degrees as it is above 4000 feet.

    Information and direction are here The trailhead is where the hiker icon is.

    Looks like 6 or 7 of us will be there.

    You're looking at a bit over 300 miles one way. That's no short undertaking for a weekend.
    I'd help, but I'm coming from the West.
