    35.4095N, 95.80492W/ Presidents Day Weekend

    The welcome mat is out...4wd or short hike in.

    What's there: trees, rocks, small cabin w/woodstove.

    What's not: utilities.

    There will be a campfire.

    Looks like possibly a view of the river also. I love Google Earth

    Only 1010 miles from here, I would love to see the area, but with the MN hang and about 800 miles for that, just not enough time or $

    Correct...about a half mile of riverfront. Wish you could make it.

    Put me down as a maybe. Work is getting in the way of a lot of stuff right now. Might not even make Caddo Lake this weekend.

    I wish I lived closer----sounds like my kind of place! Thanks for the invite!
    FYI: If you want to know what type a certain bear is, sneak up behind it and kick it. Then,
    run like crazy and climb up a tree. If the bear climbs the tree and eats you, it's a black
    bear. If the bear just pushes the tree over and eats you, it's a grizzly bear : )


    Do not walk behind me, for I may not lead. Do not walk ahead of me, for I may not follow. Do not walk beside me, either, just leave me alone.
