    where did you have in mind in uwarrie? the only place i've been down there is morrow mt state park.
    were you thinking about 1 or 2 nights.
    No problem...my trips are often spur-of-the-moment anyway

    I've never actually been to Morrow Mtn. I usually go somewhere on the Uwharrie trail. It runs north-south through the NF, three parking areas, plenty of water, plenty of 'established' campsites, easy hiking, and LOTS and LOTS of places to hang.

    Just let me know. I may go down there regardless, but I haven't decided yet.

    you plan on SLEEPING new years eve?

    Actually I'll probably do the back yard hammock thing- a nice relief from the heat.

    I found out that I have Saturday off if anyone is in the Cincy or Red River Gorge Area.
    Is that too much to ask? Girls with frikkin' lasers on their heads?

    "Deadlines and commitments. What to leave in what to leave out"
    Bob Seeger, "Against the wind"

    I have never backpack camped.
    I finished my back pack yesterday.
    How in the world can I have quality of life AND carry it on my back??

    As Shakespeare says "Therein lies the rub."

    This will be an experience. I got the gear and cooking covered. Then I started on cloths, toiletries and stuff that I take when I "rough it" on the motorcycle.
    Drive up campers don't know what "roughing it" means, do they???

    Sheesh!!

    Isn't this a different world.

    Back to decisions.

    See ya Saturday or Sunday if you go.

    Walking with weight is a lot different from regular hiking. I get used to the weight after a while and the I feel weird when I don't have a pack on. Oh yeah, you get that "hiker's lean" even after you take off the pack
