    just spoke to Woody "RNGN" he will be waiting for us at the intersection of the OT and Bell Mountain on Saturday. He is going to hike in from the Johnson Shut-Ins trail and do the Goggins mountain loop on Friday.

    Hi all; here's some more info on the meeting spot.

    Directions from Potosi:
    Go South on Hwy 21 for 17 miles to Hwy 32. Take Hwy 32 West for 8 miles to Hwy A. Take Hwy A approx 5 miles South to site.

    The google map actually shows the parking lot; the trailhead starts across the road.

    Looks like there'll only be a few us but it'll be fun and it looks like the weather is going to be perfect for this trip.

    And on this trip, I'm setting my alarm to be sure I'm up to watch the sunrise; it's the perfect place to do that!

    Not sure how much more posting I'll do between now and then but Pyro and I are looking forward to it and i guess we'll see who we see at the trailhead this Saturday!

    Hope you can make it Chewy; the weather is supposed to be perfect. There isn't a better place that I can think of to watch a sunrise...and from your hammock if you pick/get the right spot. I missed the sunrise the first time I was there...I was sleeping too soundly. So this time I'm setting an alarm. My son loves the place; it's where the group gave him his trail name so he has fond memories of it.

    The rest of you guys, we'll see you at the trail head or later at the connector you're talking about.

    Sorry you couldn't make it; final weather check is perfect! Sunrise tomorrow morning atop Bell Mountain with my Son and some friends...well, it really doesn't get better than that!

    For Disco and the others who couldn't make it...you'll be missed. We'll talk about you for sure!
