Greetings, Moving discussion to a new thread(good idea Forestree) from http://bushcraftusa.com/forum/showthread.php/154320-Interest-in-a-short-backpacking-trip-July-25-26/page2 in order to accurately reflect current discussion . Basically, I'm headed up to the Backbone trail area of the KF to get away, hopefully meet some of the great folks here, and test/use some new tools(and hammock) I received for Father's day. Y'all are more than welcome to come on out. I'm also looking at learning/practicing some of my Bushclass lessons to knock a few out, but that'll be secondary to simply relaxing(and staying hydrated! ). Noted from other thread by Forestree: I've only been there once so far for what turned into a day hike, so I'm open to suggestions as to which trailhead would be best to start from. See ya in the dirt!
