    Well, once they decided to go online, they had to carve out clearly delineated sites. And by doing that, they of course needed to have a place for a fire in each and every site. So that makes sense - totally understandable. If you're going to say "this site has room for x number of tents", then you need to make sure people don't set up 1 tent and make their own fire pit in the spot where the other tents would normally go. I did find it amusing that they're fixed to the ground and can't be moved, though. There was a perfect hanging spot at site 4 at lower forge if you could move the fire pit out of the way ...

    I don't, however, understand why they needed to cut down trees. They clearly didn't remove stumps or anything, so it's not like they made more room for more tents or anything. The only think I could think of was that perhaps some of the trees they judged to be a falling risk for where they decided tents could/should go, and pre-emptively cut them down.

    Either way, it sucks both for the trees, and us hammockers. But as long as ReserveAmerica gets their $9, I guess we're not that important.

    The rain is coming down pretty hard right now, and it's supposed to be worse tomorrow - I see a lifted fire ban in our future. The question is whether the State reacts that fast.

    I've been having visions of a butterflied filet mignon stuffed with Stilton cheese and wrapped in bacon. And scallops, and shrimp, wrapped in bacon. And roasted clams, and oysters on the half shell.

    And baked potatoes drenched in butter and sour cream, with freshly ground pepper on top. And a nice cold asparagus salad garnished with roasted sesame seeds, and a dressing of sesame & olive oil, garlic, and brown sugar.

    Any college football fans out there? I'm seriously thinking about hiking back to Batsto Saturday, then heading to the local biker bar to watch the #4 Auburn vs #1 Alabama college football game at 3:30 pm. It could be the best game of the year.

    If Alabama builds a big lead, I'll hike back early.

    Kayak Karl - can you recommend a local joint where bikers don't beat up on hikers?

    SilvrSurfr doesn't bail. Perish the thought.

    I just thought it might be a cool field trip - get some exercise, watch a great football rivalry, then hike back. More night hiking!

    I care nothing for football. But I might be tempted to hike out for beer.
