    It's a greenlight for me! Just got the ok to take Friday off. 6hr drive for me. So I'll be ariveing some time in the afternoon. Sounds like it may be a little mucky? Or is there still snow on the ground up there?

    This is going to be a lot of fun! I will have 1 or 2 friends with me, which may be tenting it. I think this weekend will be a good demonstration of the advantages of hammock camping. I think I will bring all of my stuff in with my fatbike, a Surly Neck Romancer Pug. Being that bikes are not banned in the park, I think it will be an easier way to get around. It's very leave-no-trace-friendly as well. I have a piece of metal that I could bring with a marker to write directions, but I think that I'll be there later than others. Are we trusting that people will be checking HF on smartphones or do we need a better way to communicate?

    It's sounding like I might be one of the first to get there...I will bring some signage to mark the way from the parking lot. Will anyone be getting there prior to 2pm? Also how is the cell coverage out there?

    According to the DNR site, the forest roads are closed. I left a message with the DNR so hopefully they will call me back tomorrow. I described where we were planning to park so hopefully they will have some useful information.

    It will be wet and cold, so plan accordingly! If you're dressed properly this shouldn't be an issue, but if you don't plan ahead you'll be quite chilly.

    I'm still a big maybe. I was hoping to head up the shore this weekend and do some scouting for some upcoming fieldwork, but with the snow cover we've got up here right now that's not looking likely. However if it looks anything down there like it does up here right now I don't know if I'm adequately equipped for a hanging trip. Usually when the white stuff starts flying I hit the ground.

    I just got off the phone with the DNR and they said that the forest road leading to the parking area we were planning to use is CLOSED. He said it was OK to park on the road to the North of the parking area, which is 205th. Park along the side of the road and do not block the forest road or the gate. Everything will be fine if we follow these instructions and park on the shoulder.

    The best things happen at the worse possible time.

    It(I) might not be the prettiest thing, however It(I'm) is quite functional.
