    If it's supposed to rain that weekend, my thought is that I better remember to bring my poncho.
    With beauty all around you, may you walk.

    Just yourself and what you need.
    I've never been to this park, so I figured we'd just hike the Cuivre River Trail until we find a good spot to hang, then finish the loop Sunday. Let's be adventurous and wing it.

    I've never thought bear precautions were needed in MO. I tend to hang my pack, but to help keep raccoons and mice out.

    What's up everyone. Still planning on coming up for the night. Just beware in MO that the bear population although small is rising and mountain lions are also becoming more numerous. Southern MO as seen a lot more sign then ever before so just in case someone gets eaten I wanted to be able to say I told you so!!

    Chewy, if I get eaten while in my hammock they will have to go through 50 lbs of down just to get to me. Chances are that will give me enough time to make my escape and head for Spider and Honeybear's cave.

    Good one Digitizer. As an added note, I found a yes for the VOID tabs that come with the MO trailer tag renewal. Just stick them to a piece of plastic, add string and hang from the suspension. High reflective to help find my way back to the "cave" at night. I do like your runway lights. Have fun.

    REI class for backpacking food

    Just in case spending the weekend hammocking with me isn't enough for any of you guy from the St. Louis area I will be going to the REI Backpacking meals/ food dehydrating and prep class on Monday after our return.

    http://www.rei.com/event/49004/session/66683

    Date: 3/4/2013 Time: 7:00 - 8:30 PM CST Presenter: the Hertleins Mapman and Robin Event Fee: Free

    Description: Power up and go beyond Lipton Sides & Pop Tarts. How do you pack, send and figure out meals for a backpacking trip? Come and hear how we make the "World's Most Nutritious granola bars", granola (no oil), turkey jerky, fruit leather (all fruit), where to buy tomato powder and what to do with it. How to make fast cooking, tasty meals that conserve fuel so you don't have to carry as much fuel. Best tip: How to never burn a camping meal. Test taste the best apple chips that crunch and aren't rubbery and nothing is added to them! How to pack food with the least amount of trash, weight and most nutrition for days of hiking on the trail. Kale flakes, date paste, and other awesome ingredients. Mapman and Robin have backpacked several long distance hikes (AT, PCT, Colorado Trail) and have figured out lots of food tips that they can share with you. Also there will be a list of the trail towns that they sent food boxes to along the Appalachian Trail, the Pacific Crest Trail and the Colorado Trail

    cuivre river backpack site 1 and 2

    Yesterday I checked out two sites at cuivre river. either site is fine with me
    but there are two advantages to site 1. There are many more tree pairs to hang from and they have recently cut some small trees down close by the camp site. Its cut firewood size so there is plenty of wood for a good fire.

    Not so much for camp two, far less firewood and most trees are on a steep hillside so not as good for setups.

    There is water at both sites right now.

    I put up some pictures in an album of both sites and there are also picts of
    campground site 46 and 47 overlooking lake Lincoln. Good place for car camping. The lake is right at the bottom of stairs from the campsite and
    there is a trail all the way around the lake.
