“shove it, you know what I meant!”
“So, you keeping the route a secret to spring on us at the trailhead, or can we get some hints?”
“yeah!!! Let us know :)”
“yeah what they said :)”
“Just post the coordinates for the camp site.”
“Hey, this is that awkward thread again.
Ya'll got it straigtened out yet? ;-)”
“You guys have a map?
It is simular to the one proposed in March, except we may be doing more milage.”
“I have a map. Are we doing the entire loop? What was proposed in March?”
“I also have a map. Can a brutha get a link?”
“Oh I am so comfussed! >.<”
“Originally, Crazy Mike had scheduled this trip. He had the following backcountry sites,
Friday Night------Raymer Hollow Campsite.
Saturday Night-----Collie Ridge Campsite.
I do not have my map with me right now, but I was thinking of camping south along the river on Friday night and possibably Collir Ridge as night 2.
I have to look at the map to be sure.”
“Then you want to do Sal Hollow on night one (River) and Collie on day two.
However that is a short hike from Sal Hollow to Collie.”
How about Sal Hollow night one and Raymer hollow for night 2?”
“Sounds okay to me.”
Any idea of the mileage of this route?”
“Works for me.”
“I used to have a listing of the mileages of those trails, but I think it's at home. But seems like Sal Hollow is about 6.5-7mi? Then the second day looks to be 7-8 miles, then maybe 4-5 miles back on the last day. But that's just my guess.”
“All right then. We will make this the route.”
“That was I was thinking. I kind of wanted more mileage, but it can work this way.
I will look at my map again tonight.”
“Found a page with the trail lengths
Unfortunately, it doesn't give the distances between trail intersections, just the lengths of the trails themselves. I think my guesses are still pretty good though.”
“My map doesn't give mileage, but I think bp's estimates are pretty close.”
“I agree. We will go with these for now.
I am open to other suggestions. If you guys see something else that looks interesting, please let me know.”
“September is a great time of year for this trip. Nice cool weather”
“I thought so.”
“Mood wings? Those have not started yet. However, the mood SWINGS have started.
I just changed the name of this trip. "Party Down Under" sounded like we were hiking in Australia.”
“I like Batman. Good name for trip”
“Whoo Hoo! I just got my vacation approved for this.
I will be there!”
If my hip doesn't start feeling better, I'll have to bail! Woohoo!”
“wounded knee, you planned this trip months ago but just now got your vacation time approved.
would this be the first time the person who planned the trip didn't make it”
“see the Sods Fest 04”
“I had no fear that I would not get my vacation time approved.
Well a little...”
“Last week I started having trouble with pain in my hip. I have no idea what's causing it, just that it hurts like hell. I'll be doing fine, then sit down, or roll out of bed, and whammo, it's like someone's trying to cut their way out of my left hip. I guess I oughta go to the doc, but I'm gonna wait and see if it clears up on its own.”
“If it turns green, you may want to see a doc.”
“lol, yes, a color change defintely will result in a trip to the doc.”
“Well I hope you can make it.”
“Me too, don't want to miss out.”
“Well, I went to the doc and he said I've just strained a muscle in my butt. He gave me some stretches to do to help try and get the muscle to stretch out and heal. I'm also gonna go to the chiropractor and get an adjustment to see if that will help. Still list me as a maybe for this one, but if it's still hurting next Thursday, I'm out.”
“Sounds good Bit. I hope your butt...I mean leg feels better.
I you just want to meet us on Saturday, that would work.”
“That's If you”
“OK, I hadn't thought of that. Y'all still planning on staying at Raymer Hollow Saturday night?”
“Yea, we will be there on Saturday. Not sure on Friday's campsite yet. We will probably vote on Friday as to that site.”
“DAMN! The weather is looking sweet for this trip.
Knock on wood.”
“Yah checked it and it does look good. Hopefully Ivan won't reverse himself and screw everything up.”
“Weather forecast for this weekend has improved. Looking like a great weekend to be in the woods.
I'm still struggling though, my kids have soccer games on Saturday and I feel bad stranding my wife. My hip is okay though...I think I'm gonna make it, but not until Saturday.”
“That's cool! We will meet you at Raymer.”
“I had forgotten about this trip, but think i can make it for Friday and part of Saturday. Is there a place I can bail on Sat? I have to be back in Nashvegas by 7pm.”
“If y'all stay at Sal Hollow Friday night, then you should be able to bail using the Buffalo Trail back to the Maple Springs parking area and get back to Nashvegas by 7:00PM easy.”
