    My mind is going thru things to make in my little dutch oven, see if I can contribute something more than just my willingness to stir and eat!

    Your company is contribution enough, but there is no shortage of tasks to be done either!

    On an aside I sure hope a few of you have put on your thinking caps towards designing our new patch for this year!

    Got an idea but need to solicit the help of my artist daughter to transfer it from my head to paper.

    No ideas for the patch. Not any good ideas, anyways. More than enough ideas for kitchen prep. Too many ideas for eating.....Look out!


    So, where are these 30 or so miles of trails from Doe Lake? How long is the trail attached to Doe Lake? Anyone do any recon, yet?

    I'm hankering for a hunk of Doe Lake hanging.
    Enjoy and have fun with your family, before they have fun without you

    I looked at Google Maps and other aerials. Wide trails are plainly visible, but I'll bet my bottom dollar that they are equestrian trails. I'm, there's nothing worse than trying to hike on them. We have 6 months to figure this out. My wife & I plan to do some hiking!

    I've seen some of the aerial views and seems like there are plenty of FR's, but little in hiking trails. The lake should have a nice trail around it looks like. That's said with the knowledge that these old fotos don't show the overgrowth that happens, of course. May have to do a hike out there some time soon.

    Hiking is good. As another hanger has previously stated recently to a few of us, there seems to not be enough hiking happening. It's not meant with any ill will at all, just a good observation.

    For me, a nice 2 hour hike early in the morning after breakfast daily should leave me wanting more....and hungry for lunch, at this group hang.

    This seems to be such a special kind of group hang and different than any other in the year that I don't mind too much not getting a lot of miles in.

    Ok... I'm in and Bugbait (oldest daughter Emma) is in. Apparently Bugbait is sticking to her word and is fully set to return Gumbo's egg carrier that was left behind on Goat Island (thanks Timberr ). I also have two Maybe's since we don't know what extracurricular activities my youngest daughter will be involved with at that time (possibly a Jr. Golf tour and/or children's theater). Allyson (wife) will wait to commit closer to date when we know for sure what schedules will look like.

    If permitted, I will plan to bring my turkey fryer that I had on Goat Island. Will also look forward to helping in the "kitchen" when needed. I think I will get to paddle my new boat this time around.

    Thanks to everyone to coordinates this event. Looking forward to another visit.

    Good to hear. We will have an extra boat with us if you and Bugbait want to go on a river paddle together. Please bring the turkey fryer, I'm sure we can put it to use.

    Andy, this year...if you have to do it, kidnap me for the Silver River trip. I really want to go see the monkeys again.
