    Southern Illinois Hang, Sam Dale Lake, 2/22-23/13

    I didn't get to make it out to last years hang. So let's try this again.
    Same Dale Lake is a 194 acre lake. It has 8.5 miles of shoreline to hike around.
    Most times of the year there is nobody there. Tons of great places to hang at.
    Here are some pictures of the lake and surrounding areas.



    Me out being a noob!
    I used to use Windows, now I use something better!

    Would more people be interested if this trip were pushed back a few weeks to allow for warmer weather?

    Sounds good. I never know about work this far out but set a place and time and I'll try to make it.

    Well the original plan was for the 22nd-23rd of next month at the lake.
    If the weather is too cold for some we can push it back a few weeks.

    Great.

    What time you want to meet up?
    Just meet there or at a trailhead?

    I'm not sure what time I'll be there. I'm sure I will be the only person there though. Not many people camp there that time of year.

    If anyone has someone that wants to tag along, I have a couple extra hammocks I could loan out.
