    On the Batona Trail, the trees are blazed with a lovely pink. The Mullica River trail is yellow. Like I said before, I kind of prefer taking the Mullica River trail 'cause I just don't get lost as much.

    I don't have a GPS. KK has posted the Garmin waypoints for the Batona Trail in this thread:

    http://www.hammockforums.net/forum/s...ad.php?t=62693

    Very little chance of getting lost on the Mullica River trail, even without a GPS. It's well marked. Bonus is that the trail goes through Batsto Village so you get to check that out. I just prefer the Mullica River trail to reach Lower Forge but that's strictly personal preference. Nothing wrong with the Batona Trail to reach Lower Forge - I just like the scenery along the Mullica River a bit better, and there's also a water pump at the Mullica campsite for easy fill-up before doing the final 3 miles to Lower Forge.

    There's a closed section of the Mullica River Trail because a bridge is out but I no longer take the detour. The bridge was a joke and the river has never been deep enough to even take my shoes off to cross it (though I would if necessary). It's a pretty section of the trail, well worth seeing.

    I take the closed section of the Mullica River trail in this video at the 11:00 minute mark. You can see how difficult it is for me to cross the river, as well as the wreckage of the bridge.

    SilvrSurfr seems to think that there's a decent amount of wood to be found, perhaps not at the cam, but on the way in. Assuming we can get a fire, we could think about making this like a 501 Hang, and bring in real food. Could be fun to cook red meat on an open fire, rather than eat dehydrated food from a bag ... thoughts?

    Filet mignon fajitas! Cook garlic, onions, bell peppers, olive oil and chili powder in aluminum foil, the filet mignon on a stick. Voila! We can also bring refritos frijoles and tortillas for a rib-sticking dinner.
