I'm thinking of hiking an out and back from the Badcreek pumping station towards Hilliard Falls / Horsepasture River crossing. Yes, I know it's cold.... No, I don't know exactly when I would go.... But, there's gotta be a sort of tolerable weekend comming up in the next 2 months I can make a 3 day outing out of. Just keeping the gear ready for a short notice dash whenever the weather man makes some nice 7 day forcasts. WHAT?!! You say he lies? Oh well. If anyone has any suggestions for the trail, or how to keep warmer, or is interested in going (Asthma, I hike slow) .... let me know.
I'm thinking of using my Spear hammock, winter tarp, a SPE with 1/2" CC wings and a ultralight thermarest in the center section, and my .... ummm 40Degree down Kelty bag (I know, I know). I have a couple of small fleece blankets to throw over / under me too, a light down jacket, & some Long Johns. Anyone think I'll die?
