My daughter home from college says she wants to spend Father's Day with me, so where better than the Pine Barrens? You're welcome to join us.
My daughter has never slept in a hammock, has never backpacked, is recovering from a torn MCL (like her dad), has no idea what a tick is and has never heard of permethrin, but is willing to do whatever Dad wants on his special day.
This is not a holiday I normally celebrate in any way - in fact, I am convinced they're not my kids (though they do kind of look like me) - it's just an excuse to get out in the piney woods! It's a short 4 to 5 mile hike from Batsto to Mullica, so even my crippled daughter can make it (even if I have to carry her stuff). My two sons may also come, but I'm going regardless if anyone else comes. I've reserved site M002; if memory serves me it has plenty of trees.
Will probably do a day hike to add some mileage and get some exercise.
