    Thanks for your replies. So far it's a go for me. But, time will tell.
    Last night, I used 2 old USPS tyvek envelopes to make a bear bag and stake bag. I hope to give them some fresh air soon.

    Edit: Lilricky is going right? Who needs water, then? We love you, Lilricky.
    Enjoy and have fun with your family, before they have fun without you

    I think I'm out. Gotta a chance to go hanging with family out of state, the next weekend. I really wanted to check out this forest and meet up with you guys, but don't think the wife will like me going two weekends in a row. Have fun and my fingers are crossed for cool weather for you!

    Just let her know that you will be spending the weekend with some of the best people in Florida and that she will not have to come bail you out of jail or rescue you from the zombies. Best thing to do is bring her along and let her see just how nice we are.

    I went out for a quick overnighter to Isabel yesterday to get in the woods, relax a bit, test my back, and see how the site looks for our upcoming trip. The best news is that my back feels like it is at 100% so I'm in!! The camp looks fine and the creek has plenty of water and we'll have plenty of firewood available as long as we bring a hand saw or two and maybe a hatchet.

    Scooby and I will go for a walk out to the Lakeside camp site to see if it still has water (the little stream there might be dry right now). If there isn't water then we'll do the Creekside camp (where we do the Sherpa hang) but if it still has water then I vote for doing Lakeside so that we get a chance to try that site out.

    Here is a pic of my set up with my new tarp from UGQ (thanks Paul)! I took advantage of being the only one here and set up next to the picnic table.



    And a nighttime shot...



    I can't wait to see the gang again

    Nice setup Dave, looking real good.
    Thanks for the recon. I was out a few nights behind Lake Godwin last month, super nice area.
    Looking forward to seeing you and the others.

    Nice tarp you got there Dave!

    Isn't the lake water available at the Lakeside Camp?

    Maybe but it probably wouldn't be easy to get to. You would have to work your way past the shoreline vegetation and muck to get to the water. You would probably need a shower after you got back

    Scooby and I will let you know this week

    The weekend of this hike is starting to show up in the 10 day forecast. It looks ok so far (80/60 with t-storms)... keep your fingers crossed
