    let me work on this tonight and I will try to get it ready for tomorrow.

    EDIT Here is some of the information that was requested:

    Maps: can be found on page 7 post 47.

    Great description of the hike in:
    I believe the plan is to park in the lot on highway 281, right there outside Turnipseed. I guess you could park inside the Turnipseed campground if it's open, but not sure on the closure dates. I think we are base camping the same place we did last year (correct me Bigbama if I am wrong). If you hike back towards the Pinhoti, going out of Turnipseed camp past the last map board, and follow the trail to the first creek, you will see the place. I plan to leave the office in time to be there around 4:30 or so on Friday, so I will keep an eye out for the Hammock crew.
    Thanks Aboyd.

    OK so far we have :

    OK, My son has a test last block on Friday, so I can't leave Mobile till 2:30pm. It is a 5 hour ride if traffic is light. So I will get there by 7:30PM at the earliest. I want to keep navigational errors to a minimum so if someone has coordinates to the parking lot and to the hang spot, Could they post them?

    looking at the map in post 47 on page 5 it appears that this is the parking lot that we should park in.

    Yes, that's the parking lot. There is a trail leaving the parking lot, in the corner, that heads back to Turnipseed camp. For it was a little tricky to follow in the dark, but doable. You can also come back south on the road, maybe 300 yards or so, and there is a driveway going in to Turnipseed camp. There is a trail running out the back of Turnipseed camp towards the Pinhoti. It runs back passed a map board, follow that trail towards the Pinhoti and we will be setup in there. Less than a mile if I remember. If you think it will be 7:30 or 8 when you get there, I am sure we can have someone keeping any eye out for ya. I can walk back up to the parking area and watch.
