    Arctic Blast + new UQ = Lost Maples this weekend

    I have been trying get to Lost Maples before the colors had fallen but did not make it. But this upcoming cold front is another good chance to get away and test some new gear and new ideas. I will be heading up to Lost Maples SNA near Vanderpool, TX this Friday and departing Sunday (Dec. 6th - 8th).

    If anyone is interested in joining me let me know. I will be staying at site B, on a hill in the middle of some nice hard wood trees.

    Expected Temps Hi - 37* Lo 27* / 20% chance wintery mix (snow & freezing rain)

    I know it's short notice so I don't have too high of hopes of company. But just thought I would put it out there just in case...

    I'm looking forward to the cold and will be leaving extra gear in the car just in case the rating is off on the gear I pack. Down here in Corpus Christi we rarely get down into the 40's so none of it has been truley tested.

    Did you end up going? I know the roads are horrible. And really not ideal driving conditions.
