    Feb. 8 -10 Hoosier National Forest - Deam Wilderness Hike

    There is a group heading to the Deam on Friday Feb. 8th... Any HF members would be welcome to join. Pretty basic weekend hike... meet at the Firetower Friday around 5:00 PM.. hike in to the "ruins", old homestead
    (approx. 2 miles). Set up, enjoy the evening. Head back to the Firetower Sat. AM to meet up with Sat. arrivals, then do the Sycamore Trail loop on Sat. ( about 6 miles), out Sunday AM. For anyone heading home through Bloomington, we'll do our usual stop at the Log Cabin for a great post hike Breakfast/brunch.

    The hike is a go, with approx. 4-5 already on board. Disclaimer...some of these good guys may actually not hang. Please don't let that disuade you from joining. We love the Deam, and the weather will be perfect.

    I have been backpacking on the Adventure Hiking Trail in southern Indiana. It was a great weekend down there. I haven't been to Deam before though so I need to get up there

    I've been interested in checking out Deam but we have a scouts overnight at Bluesprings caverns that night. How does Deam compare to other spots in Indiana?

    Wish I could go, but the wife will be in Columbus and my son's Pinewood Derby was rescheduled for that weekend.

    Have a good time!
