    I enjoy hiking, maybe a bit shorter distance. Sightseeing 5-6 miles. I was thinking BaseCamp Friday & Day-Hike Saturday.

    Any other ideas???

    Count me in. I'll make the area by early afternoon on Friday. Looking forward to more of a primitive hike & hang. I'm also up for a nice day hike on Saturday. Thanks for the maps Dave.

    I'll plan on leaving mid-day on Sunday.

    So, it's BYODO (Bring Your Own Dutch Oven) this time, eh?

    Shorter is fine with me too. I will bring my map of this area and we can figure out one of the loops that will yield the best scenery.

    I should be able to make this. But I will be arriving at the trail-head around 7:45pm after I get out of work. And I have absolutely no problem with that at all.

    I can't wait for the hang to start!

    That's along the lines of what I was shooting for. Probably a trip out to the cypress trees (not to be missed) and then backtrack along the trail to the camp.

    You definitely have to see the cypress trees.... better than anything Disney has to offer!

    Had Mountain Man Breakfast for dinner tonight. Is that strange? No my wife, daughter and granddaughter wondered what it was. Won't be hauling as much water this trip. Maybe my little DO can make the trip.

    I have a pump filter anyone is welcome to use while out there. It works very good.
    I agree the cypress trees along the lake are awesome. I usually see turkeys on the trail and sometimes some racoons looking for muscles along the banks.
    Should be nice.
