    That's light! I've been working to get under the 12lb mark. If we get some warm nights, I might be.
    With beauty all around you, may you walk.

    Just a reminder since I can't change the outdated info in the first post anymore...

    Friday 8am: Meet at the Taum Sauk Mountain parking lot. Pile into a few cars and drive to the hwy A trailhead to start our hike.


    It looks like if we camp where I want to camp, we'll be doing aprox. 11 miles on day one, 7 miles on day two, and 12 miles on day 3.

    Day 1: Hwy A to Walker Branch. There is a nice site with a fire ring there, and there should be water in the branch.

    Day 2: Walker Branch to Johnson Shut Ins for Lunch, to the Scour. The Scour is a cool place to hang...neat view of the valley and the reservoir.

    Day 3: The Scour to Taum Sauk Mt.. This will be a long day, but we'll see some cool stuff like Mina Sauk Falls and Devil's Tollgate.

    A few notes about the terrain... There is every possible kind of surface along this trail. Mud, gravel, grass, dirt, moss, large boulders that you have to climb up, and several creek crossings (including the Black River). You name it, we'll walk on it. Choose your shoes/boots accordingly.
    Water was plentiful...hopefully that will be the case when we go.
    There are many areas where you are in the sun for a long time. Sunscreen is suggested.

    Here's a map that shows the Taum Sauk lot and directions to the HWY A trailhead lot:

    With beauty all around you, may you walk.

    Ground dwellers?

    We have a couple that are interested in joining us, they are currently ground dwellers. We are trying to convert them to hammocks. Would there be any objections if they joined us for this shindig?

    I am just bringing 40 degree TQ and 40 degree UQ and if those don't work I will be every item of clothing I bring!
    If it snows in May I am just leaving...

    I am sure Disco will agree- everyone is welcome.

    Always happy to have a few more along for the trip. And you never know after a weekend of camping with a few of us in Hammocks they may just convert.
