    Did JoeyB confirm? If he comes I have to rethink my clothes, still remembering my gloves melting last year
    The major creek crossing(s) are on Saturday correct? At least it's going to be in the upper 50s!
    We hope to get there on friday but we think it will be later in the day.

    Camp is hard to miss. Once you hit Laurel fork creek you cant miss it. Its at a trail intersection with a horse fence blocking off the hiker trails. You might even spot a hammock or two

    I hope to see everyone around 6:30-7:00 PM ET at the campground tomorrow.

    It was supposed to be 29 deg last night, so I tried my quilts one last time to be sure I was good for this weekend. I can't wait.
