    Notice, Alcohol Ban within 200 feet of Tower

    FYI, do not handle or get caught using alcohol within 200 feet of the tower. Make sure it is in your pack if you are bringing libations. And don't use it until you are well on the trail. Just a precaution, but worth knowing about.
    Acer brought this to my attention. I keow about it but he sent this link as well:

    "Possessing or using a wagon, cart, bicycle, or other wheeled items or vehicle."

    So much for me cycling there. Ok - plan B.
    I got in a fight one time with a really big guy, and he said, "I'm going to mop the floor with your face." I said, "You'll be sorry." He said, "Oh, yeah? Why?" I said, "Well, you won't be able to get into the corners very well."

    I know those regs are "For the good of all" and cover all of the INF wilderness areas, except for the MU's and Nebo, which is slowly becoming just another MU. Enforcement of dirt bikes, four wheelers, and horse traffic, in unauthorized areas, is so remiss, and from a LEO point of view, too time consuming to catch and apprehend in the act. I can't imagine a group of LNTs making even a blip on that radar.

    As long as everyone acts and hikes in a reasonable and responsible, state of mind and manner, there is little chance for enforcement, outside of the tower parking lot.

    Still. Makes me long for the henge

    Hey I was wondering what cell coverage was like at the planned site? Or a better question would be is there any at all?

    As of right now, I am planning to come out Friday night through Sunday morning, along with 2 buddies.

    If I understand correctly, the campsite is along the same fire trail that goes to the cemetery, but take a left at the first "Y", instead of continuing straight to the cemetery, and it will lead me straight to camp. Is that correct?

    Looking forward to seeing some familiar faces and spending some time in the woods. Hopefully the weather holds as it was a bit wet last year for my tastes.
    oldgringo's reply to my worrying about owning extra hammocks:

    How many pairs of underwear do you own? Do you refer to them as "extras", simply because you're not wearing all of them as we speak?
