    Move me to the "maybe" column, y'all. I had to make an appointment with my dentist for 1000 tomorrow, so we'll see if I still feel up to coming. Keep your fingers crossed for me, y'all. I hate the dentist.

    Looks like I'll need to keep the water filter and Jet Boil fuel in the hammock or use alcohol for breakfast.

    Heading to meet WFR in Greer and he has directions from Greer. From Irmo, Google search directions to Oconee State Park. Burrells Ford Rd. is north of the park on HWY 107. I believe Swampfox has posted good directions to the trailhead. Check those out too.

    Clemson Game

    Just a heads up to anyone coming up Friday night...there is a Clemson game on Saturday which means there will probably be a pep rally or something of the sort friday evening. if your directions take you through Clemson and you're gonna be hitting it after 5pm traffic will probably be rough. i was up a few weeks ago and didn't end up making it to burrells ford till 9pm (2hrs after i had planned to arrive) because the traffic was so bad. just a heads up.

    Does this look like a good route to take? Will that be far enough away from Clemson to miss most of the traffic on Saturday?

    The last time I went I headed up through Clemson and came home the route you are showing here, traffic was excellent on 11 and I made great time. Even in ideal conditions through Clemson I doubt it's a 20 minute difference.
