MB, I could kill for a good hang right now but until I get some of this weight off, the hike makes it a no go. I do understand the building need for some hang time though. Ya'll have a good one and please post pics, you'll be helping a fellow hanger to stay motivated.
When are you guys starting the second leg? I have a going away dinner Friday night but could join you guys Saturday for a hike and hang. I want to see some expert set -ups before i pursue mine
From the Palmetto Conservation Foundation website:
Lake Moultrie Passage, section 2
Between mile 22 and Eutaw Springs Passage
Traveling west, the trail turns right onto Viper Rd. Temporarily, the trail will continue down Viper Rd, turning left onto SC 45. The campsite will still be usable as marked on the map, but will only be accessible by a spur trail connecting to Viper Rd. Cars can still be parked at the parking area, but no kiosk is currently present. Plans are in the works for a new one to be built.
Now I have an email to Dane but haven't heard back from him yet (I will try calling him in the morning). From what I can tell the trail head parking area is still open but the trail to the camp site is closed. We will have to hike back up to hwy 45 and around to viper rd where hopefully find the trail spur back down to the camp site (again I will check on this in the morning). From looking at the map its about 3 miles going around to viper rd (it might not be a bad idea to print the map out if you can).
Now because this coming down to the wire I would really like a to have a head count to see who is coming. So please if you don't mind please reply with a yes or no and when you might be getting to the trail head or camp site (estimations don't hurt).
For those asking for an itinerary: I will be hiking in to the first campsite Friday late afternoon/early evening. Saturday is breakfast from the hammock Whoooo Buddy . Then pack out on the trail to the sandy beach trail spur campsite (about 8ish miles). Sunday is pack up and out to the trail head to the car (over 10 miles). I hope you guys can join me.
Ok Guys, I am officially out. I just don't think I'm recovered enough to do the section at this point so I'll have to bow out. Maybe one day I'll get to walk in the woods again!
Hiking & Hanging is therapy, and much cheaper than medication in the long run. Carry on.

Well do to circumstances beyond my control I too well not be able to make this trip . Sorry guys but I guess this one was not meant to be.
Maybe after the holidays are over with I'll try to make this happen again.
