    Definitely registering interest for at least Saturday. I might be able to get Saturday off, Friday is less likely.

    We'll see as the date approaches...

    It looks like I may be free that weekend and I would like to get back up to Lake Arbuckle. I will try to schedule this in.

    I'm pretty much planning a primitive weekend. Very basic hot water meals. I plan on being as simplified as possible. But I will bring my camera to see those cypress trees everyone raves about. And, speaking of unique cypress trees... How about the Senator catching fire and collapsing this past weekend. 3500 year old!!?? Very sad affair.

    Atleast it was from natural causes so to say, a lightning strike??? That was pretty fitting end to the tree instead of arson or bugs eating it rotten. All in all, a sad day and everyone who has been to see the tree will cherrish the memory of experiencing the feeling of standing at the bottom and looking up at it's beauty.......

    Pretty much what I had in mind. Just enough hiking and sightseeing to work up a good nights sleep.

    I'm bringing only my tiny little Bushcooker Lt1 with Grizly Adam's tiny little alky stove as an insert. I won Grizz's stove at the Florida Hang raffle. Unless of course it's raining cats & dogs: then I'll bring the Emberlit ti with a gallon of gasoline

    So while Islander and I were being forced to relax, enjoy a beautiful view, a nice campfire, and the noise (frogs, crickets, and owls were all competing for the microphone) I discussed a couple of ideas for this hang. I would like a little feedback but will probably go ahead with both if there is even a small bit of participation (I think Islander is already in).

    1. After seeing all of the garbage that has washed ashore I decided to offer everyone the chance to help us out and pick up trash during our hike along the lake shore. I'll bring garbage bags and in exchange for your labor I am offering up free admission for the weekend ($2/person/day).

    2. I can sherpa in my DO on Friday morning and stash it near the camp site and if everyone pitches in to buy/carry in some of the fixin's then we can have mountain man breakfast Saturday and Sunday mornings. It is only about a 45 minute hike (about 2 miles) to get to the camp site so I'm also probably going to bring in my camp chair so that I'm extra comfortable while I'm out there (I'll also bring plenty of bug spray)

    I'll probably do #1 either way... of those that are definitely coming, what do you think about the second idea?

    Anyone not participating, can eat cold, stale pop-tarts while we enjoy a fresh serving of Mountain Man Breakfast!
