    Alright I'll go. Just drop the branch. Just have to clear it with work unless the fire me by then, then I'm in for sure.

    i heard he uses a breathable material for his hammocks so he doesn't have to get out to pee at night.

    I usually head up through Lansing but could do the 131 route... Not sure how many I'll have going from Jackson, me for sure maybe 1 other, should have room for two plus packs as long as everyone is packed correctly.... Chevy Cruze comfy but small cargo space...

    Another suggestion is the Jordan River Valley trail up near Belaire. I've done this trail several times now and itís my favorite, more so than the other trails you have mentioned.

    It is a relatively short loop (~18mi) with only a moderate elevation climb despite the several scenic overlooks into the river valley. There is no backcountry camping allowed, all overnighters must stay at the Pinney Bridge campground located at the halfway point of the loop. There are two vault toilets and a water pump at the campground with a fire pit at each campsite. Several of the campsites have sufficient trees for hammocks. I wouldnít worry about the campsites being filled, on a busy weekend that I went which also happened to have several Boy Scout troops; they were barely above half capacity.
