    Hey, NO more hammocks failing ... Been there, done that !

    Besides that 24" hammock you got in and rippppppppp'it in two are no more.

    Failing Bridge hammocks? Been there and done that. Trying to engineer a light bridge. NO can do. Besides, the sailboat sail material (Polyester, not nylon) I found hardly stretches at all. Thus, yo' hammock lay is nearly a flat as a "bridge" hammock. www.dplightweightbackpackinggear.com

    Plus, that Bridge that failed was on the Hill. (Browning Hill) And you know me and the Hill. Being haunted, it has nearly ALWAYS done something to me out of the ordinary. Yup, I'm ready to hit the Hill again just to see what she throws at me ... again.

    So ... Mule pack MORE? Hey, good buddy, I wouldn't wish that on your back for anything. Besides, my 15 pounder is tried and proven now. WAY reliable while I "skip" along watching, uhhhhhhhhhh you know, slap those hoofs deep into the mud ...

    AND, Thanks for confirming April 12-14. Hey, thinking of Lucky 13th ... How about Browning Hill that nite? I figure hanging on the Hill the 13th, why, why, who knows what might happen. Maybe the aliens might return, maybe the Indians crawl out from under those massive "blocks"? Maybe all the Hill snakes crawl out of the cistern? Maybe the Hill pond frogs turn into ... Maybe ... Maybe ...?

    Remember the "blood orange" full moon rising on the "HILL"?
    Yes I remember that moon... LOL I got a bigger heavier pack, Oh I love it.

    here are the maps as seen on the Crescent Valley thread:

    Crescent Valley is the place
    April 12, 13 & 14th is the date

    I am not promising but I may get down to mark where you turn to the NNW off the Sycamore Loops South side.

    Directions to crescent valley ii

    Gabe, Brandon, Mark and I went to Crescent Valley II this weekend to mark the trail. Basically all you need to remember is Take the Sycamore Loop going east about 5 minutes from the car. At about 20 minutes from the car you will start switchbacks. 20 minutes later you will get to the #2 sign on the Sycamore Trail Loop. At this sign you should turn North. I placed red and white Refective Tape on trees about 6 feet off the ground. You wll see the first one as soon as you turn North into the wide hollow with the stream coming out of it.
    Follow the stream North for 10 to 20 minutes and you will come to the clearing, Crescent Valley II.
    I suggest you don't ware anything that the green briars can damage like a down jacket or Dry Ducks. Tuck this stuff inside your pack to traverse the scrubby woods that follows the creek to the clearing.
    Gabe and Brandon built a terrific fire enclose. You cannot call this a fire ring as you can see by the pictures. It is quote elaborate and really puts out the heat. Logs 7 feet long will fit inside the pit and is easy to feed.
    It will be good to see you all on the 12th.
