    Hey, just making it official, I won't make it. Sad about that. But having knee issues (specialist said rest it some what, stay on the meds....wife was quick to point out my advancing years...) and back issues and it seems I'd committed to some family deal.
    Take care, have fun, post a trip report and make it sound horrible so I don't feel bad about missing this.

    Thanks Caveman, Go Spidey, & Gimpy! The hike was great. I just wished I could have done the whole thing. The hike back out at my own pace was better! Here's a few pics from my hike back out.

    We survived

    It was a pretty nice weekend. Everything went pretty much as planned and the weather was great.

    We picked up GoSpidey at the west end of the trail and headed back to Juniper at around 945. Wood was waiting at the parking lot and we hit the trail. We quickly broke into two groups, but met up again at a few places on the trail. Wood hiked with us to Cedar Bayou where we had snacks and he went back to Juniper Point (he had obligations for Sunday and wasn't able to stay the night and finish the trail). It was cool to meet you Wood. Thanks for coming out to say hi.

    Gimpy, GoSpidey and I hiked in the rest of the way to 5 mile camp and began setting up our sleeping areas. Show and tell time was fun and we lounged for a while. We had made good time to 5 mile, so it was still early (I like to think of this as Nap Time). When I woke, it was almost dark and time for some dinner. I started a fire and we enjoyed good conversation and the warmth of the fire until around 11 or so.

    We woke early, packed up, ate a quick bite and hit the trail. The hike out from 5 mile doesn't have too much elevation change and a pretty easy going hike, so we were quickly back at GoSpidey's vehicle and heading our seperate ways.

    It was a nice trip. The weather was great and the trail is well marked. I only took a few pics. I'll try and load them soon.

    "The hike out from 5 mile doesn't have too much elevation change and a pretty easy going hike" - Cept that part where I wish I was Spider-Man!
    I had a great time, Gimpy definitely ain't gimpy. Especially in his imagination!
    Wood, hope to see you at the next one. Good luck with the Michigan trek.
    Thanks for showing me the way Caveman. I'll be back there.
