    I am a definite maybe!
    Afoot and light-hearted, I take to the open road,
    Healthy, free, the world before me,
    The long brown path before me, leading wherever I choose.

    Everyone please remember that the listed dates are still speculative, although I need to make a concrete decision soon. If different dates would work better let me know. I want to give everyone interested the best shot at being able to make it.

    I'd like to see if i can make it this time. Flying to Iowa for a day for work was a poor substitute for three days at BSF.

    After giving it some time to see if the speculated dates would work with no objection I think its time to make this an official trip planning thread. Moderators, if one if you would be so kind as to update the title to make it official I will post the details of the trip this evening after work. Hope to see a good turnout for this!

    Ok, so here is the plan so far. Hangnout, please correct me if I am off the route we discussed. We will be starting from the twin arches on friday and hiking down slave falls to laurel fork creek trail. Probably looking at staying friday night somewhere on laurel fork creek. I called BSF and was advised that I can expect about 18 stream crossings so everyone bring your crocs! Saturday looking at finishing up laurel fork and following black house branch to charit creek for the evening, leaving us with an easy hike back to the arches sunday. For those who dont want to do the full loop or who cant make it friday, there is always the twin arches loop trail which would allow for everyone to arrange an easy meet&greet for saturday evening. If anybody knows this route and sees any issues/mistakes on my part, please let me know. Last years BSF hike planned by Roche was great and I'd like this one to be every bit as good!

    I'm in 99%. Shouldn't be a problem to get the day off work.

    I'm new to hammock camping so it will be a chance to meet some of y'all and have a good time.

    If nothing happens I am heading out tomorrow morning to scout the route out. Any locals interested in joining me? Looking at 18-20 miles and an amended number of over 25 creek crossings, most of which I am told can be rock hopped. I want to check it all out so I can give everyone accurate information.

    I do intend to make it at least an overnighter. If I am lazy I may even stretch it out over two nights.
