    I'm definitely going and have a Hennessey stock asym tarp I can bring for you. It's minimal coverage but will keep you dry if you hang it right. So no worries for a tarp. Hope you both can make it. If you are, just let me know and I'll definitely bring it for you. It's set up on a ridgeline with hardware so it's complete.

    Wilderness Trail



    Length: 8.5 Miles

    This trail gives you an opportunity to experience great geological and natural features. It has a rich history of construction starting with sections built by the Civilian Conservation Corps for horse trails in the early 1930s, to Scouts from St. Louis area in the 1970s, to the Ozark Trail volunteers and finally to the state parks trail crew in 1996. The trail is a natural surface of moderate difficulty, but due to its length should not be attempted by beginning hikers unless accompanied by someone more experienced. To shorten your hike time, you can use the .70-mile white connector 2.

    Eight backpacking camps are provided along the way. Each camp has a connecting spur off of the main trail. They are primitive and contain only a fire grill and a cleared area for several tents. They are first come, first serve with a maximum of 14 people. Overnight backpackers must register at the registration box 200 yards from the trailhead. On rare occasions, the trailhead parking lot is subject to flooding by the Meramec River and may require towing of a backpacker’s vehicle at the owner’s expense.

    The north section of this trail meanders through the heart of the Meramec Upland Forest Natural Area, which is the most rugged and remote area of the park. Forests here and in other areas are rich and majestic with tall, dense and diverse forest and cherty woodlands. Views of the river can be seen from a high vantage point, especially after the leaves have dropped. Woodlands with rocky glades will appear on sun drenched slopes and at the peaks of ridge tops.

    Glad to help, consider it a done deal and I won't forget it We probably won't need it for rain but it cuts down the wind too.

    CB4 is running point on this so I'll leave it to him to make the list. I planned on PM's him my cell phone number.

    You're killing me with the Friday night! I'd love to but by the time I get off work and drive there...well, it won't work so I'll be at the trail head around 9:30 or so. Early is on time, on time is late...

    The weather forecast right now looks good; low 80's during the day and cool, perfect sleeping weather at night. Does the hammock your cousin is going to use have a ridge line? If it does, I have a bug net that slips over the whole deal. If you go to the BIAS hammock website and look at their bug net, that's it. If your hammock doesn't have a ridge line it wouldn't be too good since the netting would be in his face. So let me know, i can always bring it in case mosquito's are bad.

    It'll be a good time and I'm looking forward to meeting you guys.

    Sounds good Turtle; if you need it, I can bring it. It's actually a neat setup.

    Enjoy the weekend!
