E'town = Elizabethtown, the eastern trail head.
Gotcha. I wish I could had done more backpacking last week. Work kept me away. Although belaying a bunch of boy scouts and rock climbing for work is pretty sweet. How did you hang go?
Welcome, I'm also from Southern Illinois. Not as far south as you though.
I live in the home of the white squirrels.
Never heard of the home of the white squirrels. We need to plan a summer hike thru southern Illinois.
