    Ok, if you park at Old Conley, you'll find faint trail over the berm and down to
    that camp on Rockjock. It's only 2 to 3 hundred feet. Shug, Mac and some of the guys hung there last October on the first night.

    The sign was there last weekend, and BJ Falls was down to a trickle when we first arrived. There was one steady stream about the size of a pencil lead coming off the moss. We had lunch just past the "falls" and by the time we left, BJ Falls had turned into BJ Drips. There wasn't a single steady flowing trickle on the entire rock face...just individual drops of water coming off the moss. I rigged up a line between some tree roots and suspended a bag to catch water, which we filtered. We collected about 1 liter every 10 mins using several of the drips.

    Just got a used Garmin eTrex Vista C and uploaded the way points and routes from Linville Gorge site to it. I'm getting stoked about going tomorrow. Any hammockers going to be down there this weekend?
