    I think you may be seeing a lot of me again this hike. I can put in some slow miles myself.

    I may have to get an earlier start if I want to ensure getting to the cabin before dark.

    Buttered up rangers sounds like a good idea.

    I haven't been out for a while so the 2 mph is a no go for me also.

    Yeah we tend to go 1 to 1.5 mph since we both like to check out the scenery and take pics along the way

    At a casual pace, I covered the RS to Hobbs Cabin in about 4 hours. If you're used to hiking in the mountains, this first day will be very easy, since there is maybe 300 feet of climbing over a dozen micro-climbs total.

    If you stop for 15 minutes out of every hour, you could still make it easily in about 5-6 hours.

    If you are truly slow, you will take longer to walk the 5 miles on Saturday slower than this first walk in.

    SAVAGE GULF: 7 -10 MARCH 2013 (OFFICIAL DATES) Thread

    Well the sun will be up by around 6:30, so a group breakfast could certainly work I folks want to do so on Friday.

    I did just realize that we "Spring Forward" when we arise Sunday the 10th!
    Afoot and light-hearted, I take to the open road,
    Healthy, free, the world before me,
    The long brown path before me, leading wherever I choose.

    any word from Gredemeer and YellowJacket?

    would certainly be awesome to hang with them again too.

    Watch your weather MedicineMan,,,weatherman this morning was talking about 6 diff. fronts moving thru during the next 2 weeks of cold and snow/mix/rain type weather. Maybe by then it will level out and have decient weather for your weekend. Wished I was there,,have 2 shows to set for that weekend and now have to bounce up to Clevenland to see and visit a possible show contract for the future..so really tied up that weekend now. Will enjoy your posts and videos of this weekend. I have fished the lake there in tourneys before. Awesome country.
