    C'mon Mark....surely you could make some scheduling changes and get it to work out

    JK, I understand, but it's still a bummer.

    If it were anything other than a scheduled Boy Scout Troop campout I could do it... unfortunately I'm the Scoutmaster and I have to be there. We're prepping for Camporee and my troop's going to win this year

    Somebody please schedule a hang for one of the Spring Break weekends... March 9-10 or 16-17. I could easily do 9-11 or 15-17 for a 3-day.

    The arkansas hang is the weekend of March 9. It's a bit of drive, but you should consider going. It's looking to be a pretty great hang (me and a couple of others are going to be hiking the Buffalo River Trail too) The trail goes right by the campsites. Good Times.

    I got the green light from my Lady! I'm in! I'll get there sometime late Saturday and stay until Monday. Looking forward to it.

    If anyone wants to rideshare from DFW just let me know.

    Hey Caveman... when this gets closer and I know my travel schedule, I may hit you up for a carpool. Would love to go if I can.

    Hey Folks,

    I am trying to get this in with a coordinated trip to visit a couple of colleges with my sons. (17 & 14) Looks like the trailhead parking lot is about a 7 hour drive from my location. So my understanding, this is a carry in/carry out hike? We ain't gonna be car camping, in other words. So I am trying to get my mind around those possibilities...

    My possible itinerary would have us arriving Friday PM and visiting colleges after this fun event on Monday and maybe Tuesday

    How soon do you need to know? And, what sort of permits will be needed?

    Thanks, sargevining, for the planning info,

    Take it easy,

    Be glad to have you.

    Correct on carry in and carry out. We'll be close enough to the cars on Saturday morning to go by and pick something up on our way down the trail, but will be camping about 3 miles from there Saturday night, which makes for about a two hour hike to the cars on Sunday AM.

    No permits are required, but maybe you can bring one of those pretty goats who's pitchers that are on your welcome mat. I mean, who knows what's gonna happen after the Spacey breaks out the sippin stuff?
