Since we are meeting at the trailhead, what time would we like to kick this fiasco off?
It's your call brother.
Post a time and I'll be there with black knee high dress socks, sandals, cargo shorts, suspenders and maybe a tee shirt. (Tee shirt WAS optional ?)
I don't even own any dress socks.
I'd like to hear from others if anyone is coming to see what would work for them. Weather is looking better every time I checked it.
How long will it take you to hike back up? No good reason to hike in the dark. Figure your travel time and we'll go from there. If it just me we can figure out a time and I'll just set out and we can meet along the trail some where.
It will take me about 90 minutes to hike out.
Hey just another shout out to see if anyone still planing on coming.
@WestTnScout @hashbrown and jake @Syntria
If so what would be a good time to meet-up at the trailhead ?
Y'all that are coming a ways, make it easier on yourselves.
If it's later in the morning that will give me time to feed the heathen critters before I head that way. If you want to be there at Dawn's early light, I can do that too.
This is quickly becoming a two man reconnaissance.
How's about 0930 Saturday morning at the Centerpoint trailhead?
My bag is already packed !
Yes sir Saturday 9:30 am center point trailhead. I'll be there.
Do you think the guy dying on this trail spooked people, are we too disorganized, or did people on this forum learn who I really am?
They probably think that your avatar is a selfie.
I've heard that before....yeah....
Notice we don't even need to pm each other? This is like our own private thread..
Unfortunately I am not going to be able to make it. Last minute overtime has blown my chance to get out of town this weekend. I did let them know that I had plans but that didn't seem to help any. It really sucks to be the only one in the company that is able to do my job. Hopefully I will be able to get away when you plan another trip.
I understand. I'm the only one at work who knows how to do our billing for the state. The reason I've been working 10-12 hour days this week.
Maybe we'll start an Arkansas Trails Tour and do someplace different each month so people get a chance to attend.
I probably won't be coming after all. The drive's too long (7ish hours?) and my time's tight right now with my business, plus I got my dog to consider as I live alone. Sorry guys.
As I said, maybe we can start doing this regularly so people have an opportunity to join in the mayhem.
Can't believe she's choosing a dog and making money over hanging out with guys in dress socks and sandals...
We did it!
We had our first meet up, all two of us.
Bob will be posting some pictures soon.
I'll try to get in on one of the next ones depending on when and where.
Two is better than one...or none. Gotta start somewhere.
Thanks for all of the effort and forethought.
You suckers missed out !
But that's alright, we had a wonderful time !
And besides someone has to hold the couch down, I'm just glad it wasn't us.
Hope to see you all at the next one.
I'll post a trip report tonight.
I actually haven't followed any threads lately. It's been frustrating around my area. I'm glad you guys enjoyed it. How was the weather there?
Nice during the daylight, around 25 at night.
Sounds like a really good idea to try and work out regular trips. Might not always be the same folks which could give more of an opportunity to share different skills and ideas. Though I do want to make a trip to the trail you were on this time sometime in the near future. Hopefully before it gets too hot.
Thinking about meeting at the Lost Valley Campground.
Easy car camping, and a great base camp for several trails or canoe/kayak runs.
Let's be thinking about a date prior to memorial day..
Sorry I miss the meet. I haven't been on in a while. A few of us met up at Devils den a few years ago and I was nice to meet som wood the people you talk to all the time. Maybe I'll make the another time.
As far as I know at this point I am open through the end of June. So Far. So whatever works for everyone else is good for me.
