    Lone Star Trail Now Open---All Of It--Let's Hike Some Of The Damting!

    http://www.fs.usda.gov/Internet/FSE_...rdb5445027.pdf

    Pursuant to Title 36 C.F.R. 261.50(a) and (b), the prohibitions listed in Order number 08-13-
    04-13-08, applicable to the Sam Houston National Forest, dated May 16, 2013 and signed by
    Forest Supervisor Mark E. Van Every are hereby terminated.
    Deer Season ends 15 January, but the stupid camping Rules require camping in Hunter Camps until 1 February (but next year, On Trail Camping will be allowed during Hunting Season as long as you wear Blaze Orange.

    So what's the earliest date in February for an LSHT Hang?

    I'm thinking Parking Lot #3 to "Hurricane Cove" near Parking Lot #6, about 7 3/4 miles. We'd meet at PL #6 and leave some cars there then shuttle over to PL#3 and camp per the 200 foot rule. Hurricane Cove is close enough to Parking Lot #6 that a cooler can be carried from there for Saturday Night silliness

    14 Feb is out---that's Valentine's Day, and I think Significant Other and I are making a Bed and Breakfast trip on the 21st----so that leaves 30 January, 7 February, & 28 February.

    BTW, there's a rumor that if Snaggleroot hikes this Section, he'll complete the LSHT.

    I think February 8th or the 22nd would be fun. Might still be pretty cold though.

    Cold is good. Freezing, not so much.

    Man it sounded big and nasty.
    It was right by me but I did not even want to look at it. I was afraid it might treat me like it did that can.

    That was just one of the crazy things that happened. .

    Dang.

    And I gotta leave the dogs at home.

    What do you guys think about camping at Hurricane Cove Friday night, driving over to PL#3 on Satiddy morning and hiking back? Might could be somebody will be too hung over to make the hike and can sit around the campsite guarding out stuff and we can slack pack the hike.

    If somebody is at the campsite, then I can bring Scout along to guard us at night and take Barky on the hike. Scout won't make a 8 mile hike without a long nap somewhere in the middle. Shoot I might not make an 8 mile hike without a long nap in the middle------

    Last time I was at Hurricane Cove, the weirdest thing that happened was that I met Curlee there.
