    ok. let's hear from everyone for march 3. my suggestion is wild azalea trail. it has good parking, good places to hang, and a bathroom.

    another place someone mentioned is chicot state park. i am not familiar with it, and think there will be a fee. you can only camp in designated areas and not sure if our state parks are hang friendly. someone who may know more, please chime in.

    I have hung in Chicot a couple of times. I am not a fan of state parks. I don't like having to pay for something we can all get for free.

    Only thing with this is water availability.

    There are a few places we can play.
    The WAT has five trail head all of which we could hang nearby in the wood line. Only one I believe has restroom facilities.
    Kisatchie has the Backbone trail/Caroline Dormon,with restrooms at the parking lot/trail head and we could hang just behind the restroom (a few hundred feet or so). Also with a short hike in, 3 miles we could hang on the side of a cliff.
    Just down the road from the Backbone trail/Caroline Dormon is Kisatchie Bayou camp site. Has water from the bayou. I think this is a pay site, never been.

    So I am game. Have backpack, will travel.

    GPS coordinates as follows from google earth

    Its super easy to find. Its the start point, or end point depending, of the Lake Shore Trail.

    great spot for water and only a mile walk in. I could drag Santa's Sleigh a mile to camp on a lake.

    Oh man gear I got. Been fine tuning my gear the last year or so. Got all I need with some luxuries and still have room in the pack. Not sure if my little boy will make this trip, it will depend on the weather and his momma.
