This should take me 4-5 hours to get back to Yates place and make for a nice day hike.

    That won't get me back to Yates early enough to do any cooking that takes a while, but I could make it up by doing a big dutch oven cobbler for dessert. Maybe even with rhubarb.
    eagle did the trail last trip but he parked at the 24/27 and hiked in to camp. I then drove him back to get his truck. The more the dessert the happier we get. We needed to have it in stages last trip because we were eating so well.

    I'm going to try to make this this hang.. I showed up at the Smoked Butt hang and didn't have my gear in time to hang, so I suffered on the ground in a tent.

    I am surprised that was the case. I bet if you would have come to one of our hangs you could have gotten someone's extra gear. Did you ask to see if someone had something for you to hang in? I car camp with plenty extras including a tent and most of my gear. Extra tarp, hammocks, spare amsteel and such. Either way hope you make it with your gear this time. Bet the q was great tho.

    I had purchased a RidgeRunner but it hadn't come in yet.. I didn't really want to hang in a gathered end hammock (there were no spare Ridge Runners for some reason.. ) since I'm a side/stomach sleeper..

    now you have the caddy to sleep in. It will be good to see you out there. I was in eagles last year. it was sweet. Its the first bridge hammock and it was also the first uq i layed in. It rocked. so much ingenuity in that hammock. I could feel the downy warmth.

    It's been awesome.. just spent a week at boy scout summer camp and slept in the hammock the whole time. Slept great and never had any issues once I set the tarp up for the weather. Pro Tip: Set the tarp up for the weather you might get while 20 minutes from camp, not what is was when you left..

We could have someone make a picata or ala vodka. I myself am not italian but can cook some up. Meatballs sausage chicken parm and of course tiramisu.
    You sure you are not Italian? it sounds good to me..

    Extra dessert always sounds good to me. barely had enough last time. haha


    I was at the Smoked Butt hang with my daughter the BBQ/ chili/ all food was outstanding.

    Yea the cobbler at the Smoked Butt hang was pretty amazing but disappeared too quick. If I can commit to the cobbler once we get closer to the date, we need to find someone(s) with an ice cream maker(s) to make some homemade ice cream to go with it.

    I have made the mistake of using monroe nc weather in the uwharries, or at barnhardt and still checking hourly report from matthews.
