    I've heard that before. You just confirmed it.

    Ok, some housekeeping. The current meet up location is Friday night at the first campsite. Let me make sure, that looks to be the first one not too far from the diversion canal trailhead, correct? My current plan would be to be there before sunset since this my first hike on this trail.

    Also, I am thinking of bringing my black lab mix - she's the dog on my avatar and loves to hike. Any issues with that? She does a great job of camp perimeter patrol at night and is pretty good bear repellant, not that I would expect to see any.

    I've been eyeballing this trip but not able to mark it down in pen one way or the other until now. I got drafted to help with my daughters' gymnastics meet that weekend.

    Hope ya'll be having a swell time out there Take pics of that area. I'd like to see that section of the trail sometime soon.

    Ok so I started this under another thread but I didn't get a lot of response from it. So Lets change it up a bit.

    I present to you the South Carolina Escape the Holidays Hike and Hang Dec 2 - 4. It will be located on the second leg of the moultrie passage. Its about a two mile track in from the trail head off of SC 45.

    The tentative plan is Friday Dec 2nd arrive at the camp site whenever (hopefully before dark). Saturday Dec 3rd do some day hiking on the trail towards the lake or what ever floats your boat. Dec 4th break down and leave when you can.

    Now to my knowledge there is no fee for camping at this site. Plus I haven't personal been here so I have no idea of accommodations. This was originally going to be a there and back again hike and it still can be (but I truly just need to get out).

    If you are interested please leave a reply and we will see what happens.

    Mbcruzin, my apologies. I did not get a chance to do the 3 day hike last weekend of the Lake Moultrie Passage as planned.

    I decided to stay home and enjoy the company of friends thanksgiving weekend. So I am not going to have any video for you to go by. I will probably hike the passage over the next 2 weekends. So we may see each other on the trail, if you are still going to do your trip. I would suggest, if you have not already to contact Dane Hanna of the Palmetto Conservation Foundation. He is the Coordinator for the Low Country Passages and knows everything about the stretch that you are looking to hike. He is a pretty busy guy, so email and call him are the best results. His Contact Info Is listed below:

    Dane Hanna
    dane@palmettoconservation.org

    He can tell you what to expect and if there are any alternate routes to take due to trail issues. Just tell him YouTube name XtremeKatfishn sent you!!! Have a great Hike and I will see you on the trail!!!
    If you see me on the trail...DON'T YELL!...DON'T BAIL!... Its just your BOY, Camomeleon!!!

    Not a problem bro. I'll have to give Dane a call to see whats up with the trail. Do you think you could join us this weekend on leg 2 of the passage? I'm still looking to put some miles on my boots this weekend.

    Give me the exact plan that you have for this weekend, if it is finalized. I have an idea but looking at the thread, it seems to have moved around a bit. I may be able to join you guys Saturday for a hang, depending on where it will be on the trail. Also, who and how many will be in the group?

    Gents - I am now 50/50 on this one - I wound up in the hospital with a severely infected lymph node this past weekend, just got released yesterday. While I'm on the mend, I have to make sure that I don't push it, so it will be day-to-day for me right now. I'm kind of like nomadjeff - I bought a new 20 degree Incubator last month and haven't had a chance to test it out yet. I'll keep everyone in the loop.
