    Thanks for the history lesson. This kind of info fascinates me.

    I knew about Yellowstone, but Hot Springs is an interesting story.

    MDSH is partially correct in that the Buffalo was the first National River, part of the National Park System but with a different designation. The same thing only different.

    This will be the first group hang in Arkansas (or nearby) since I started hanging last year.

    Luckily, we don't have anything scheduled for that weekend, so my son (who also hangs and loves to camp and hang) and I should be there.

    Looking forward to it!

    Ok. I'm in the planning phase for the trip. I'm going to do the Western part of the BRT. My plan is to start at Boxley on Thursday morning, hook up with the group on Friday afternoon (have a great weekend with some awesome folks). I'm going to head out Sunday morning and then finish up at Pruitt on Monday. I've been reading and watching videos and it seems that this is really a nice trail. I'm looking forward to it.

    (oh man....I just found out that dogs are not permitted. I hate to leave my hiking buddy at home)

    I'm putting this in my calendar. I only go to spend one night last year, I'm hoping I can find time for the whole weekend this year.

    In march all you can do is hope. It could be cold, or cool, maybe warm. Probably not hot. Best guess is that it will be nice weather temperature wise for hiking and moving around in the day and a fire will feel nice in the evening. You'll want to bring an underquilt or pad.

    I'm not sure how I missed the post for so long. Kept looking in the Midwest area instead of the southeast.
    Dennis and I will be there for the event. I missed last year and am looking forward to this year.
    We will be coming back from a Florida trip with the RV's after the Daytona race. We will park the campers and wives near by and join in the fun.
