    "Second Harvest" hikes are not what you think they might be.

    Thanks for the welcomes.

    Sargevining - I think I know what you mean by the "second harvest" hikes. I hiked an old familiar trail with the kids Saturday, and my legs and knees are still reminding me of it. Is that what you're referring to?

    Thanks EastTex. My first exposure to an attempt at hammock camping was just south of where you are in Liberty, in the Trinity delta in the old Wallisville Reservoir site. A rather large friend hung his cheepo Wally World hammock between two cypress trees. His young son climbed aboard and it broke. Amazingly, he fell between the cypress knees or we would have taken him to the hospital. I snuggled down in the cold mud in my sleeping bag and thought, "what a dumb idea." Now I know better! It's all a matter of the right gear.

    Welcome from DFW. If you have any suggestions on places for a decent weekend hang in your neck of the woods...feel free to pass them along.

    Semiuseless, My favorite USFS campgrounds are Boykin Springs and Boutin Lake, in the Angelina NF south of Lufkin. You can swing over the creek below the lake at Boykin Springs. There is nothing on earth like the old longleaf pine forests! See Hairsmith's 2013 trip report on Boutin Lake.

    I also love lake Ratcliff in the Davy Crockett NF but unfortunately it is still closed due to storm damage. The 4C Sawmill trail this time of year in Davy Crockett NF is East Texas at its best IMO. There are two primitive campgrounds along this trail. I have not camped on them, but I hear good things.

    We should put together a behind the Pine Curtain hang once Ratcliff reopens.
