    I am a go for this. I should be there by 4 pm on Friday. I will keep an eye out for where everyone wants to be the first night.

    My vote would be John Schultz the first night since it's only 30 minutes from the HQ for the late arrivals and then take a circuitous route to arrive at Heffern's Hill for Saturday night.

    My brother and I will be up there Thursday night for anyone who wants to get an extra night in.

    Its a big multi-site. Its a dry camp but it is close to the paint river (5-10 min walk) Its a shorter walk than from browns hollow to car access last year. I almost headed over there today but laziness won out.

    Hefferns Hill is large, 3 separate firepits, 5 minutes from Paint Creek which is a nice trout stream.

    Trees for hammocks are largely on the perimeter of the site with the exception of one area that will support 4 - 5 hammocks. All in all, I think it's a better site because of the available water.

    Looking forward to this. Just ordered a Fourdog saw for cutting firewood. Assuming it's ok to gather wood in the park right?

    Yes, it is fine to gather firewood and there is plenty of it. I was up there this weekend and there was a lot of split and stacked wood at the camp sites, provided by the state forest workers themselves.

    It will be much fun.

    Sounds like a good site.... Especially with the wood and the H2O situation. So John Schultz Friday and Heffern's Hill Saturday!

    I might try and squeak out another day and stay Sunday night too... Anyone else game for that?
