    That's what I'm talkin' about. Thanks for the head sup, man.

    Yeah, Jeff and I were talking this morning and we realized we hadn't mentioned the stream crossing.

    Thanks for that Jeff.

    I'm planning to be there around 1-3 Friday the 22nd.

    Don't forget to get a permit at the kiosk everybody.

    My buddy's going to try to take a half day Friday. If he gets it we should be up around the same time.

    I need to start keeping an eye on the forums again. . . I've been away too long. Hope to make it out for a hang with the Ohio crowd sometime soon, but I can't make this one. I'm making a solo trip out to Hoosier National Forest later this week, then heading up to Indy to visit some friends. I'd like to get back into the habit of getting out for a hang at least once a month though so I'll be out and about in Ohio, hopefully sooner rather than later.

    sorry I won't be able to join in the fun but wanted to check in. I met many of you last winter at a couple of hangs & you were kind enough to fill me in on the basics of hammocking as I prepared for an AT thru hike. began 1st day of spring last yr, naively thinking I just needed to have the gear & know how to use it & just hike north for 6 or 7 months. OMG was I wrong. I never got the food business figured out. I had to quit the trail after 10 weeks just shy of 700 miles & a full 20 lbs lighter. even on the toughest days I never stopped feeling thrilled to be there. starting again in 3 wks - where I left off in VA. More realistic this time - I'll just for hike a few mos & I'll see how far I can get

    You're a full blown adventurer! Congrats on getting out on the trail. Did you take your sweet custom shoes out with you? I'm a total convert to the ultra-breathable footwear. Always more than welcome and safe travels on your next bout of trail-time.

    Rita,

    How often our Ohio group had lamented that we lost track of you after you started your hike. You must bring us up on your experiences sometime. Will you journal or blog?

    Rita,

    Many times around a fire we talked about where you may be and how you were doing out there.

    Please keep us updated on how things go this time around.

    I can't make it next weekend, as I'm on-call for work, but I'd planned on going out to Mohican tomorrow afternoon just for a quick overnight.

    I'm going to check out sites 1 - 3 again, but if the stream crossing looks too hairy, I may backtrack back to 4, 6, or 7. It'll be a little too chilly (40*, with a 50% chance of freezing rain) to risk hypothermia, since I'll be out by myself. Anything over knee deep, and I'm not attempting it. I just need a quick, informal, relaxing night in the woods.

    I'll try to grab some pics along the way of the stream crossings, and the other sites if I end up at one of 'em.
