    Wear something orange just to be safe.

    I think @dadman and I are going to paddle in, so the red dot spots would be fine.

    But, I hope we have a couple more folks joining us who may be walking in. How about we do the orange dot?

    Orange works for me. It's a pretty nice spot with plenty of trees for the hammocks. It's the first spot in the vid I posted, has a well established fire ring too.

    The orange dot is the easies to get to but I like the idea of being away from hunters.

    @LoneWeb Which site do you recommend since we are taking the boat access shouldn’t be a problem? If you dont mind put in the GPS cordinates so we can pull it up on Friday.

    @hlydon do you have a handheld GPS you can bring Friday? I have one that was given to me but I haven’t really used it. Ill break it out and see what I can do with it.

    If red dot, I'd recommend the one on the left fork, we've had 3 hammocks hung there before, and it's level ground. We can hike just over the hill to the other red dot from there also (about 10 min hike) each of the three spots have pros and cons.
    I don't have gps but I'll see if I can find them. I plan on getting out there to gather some wood a little early Friday ( I have a small pile stashed at the green dot lol) enough for a one or two cook fires...it'll save us a little work.

    I’m going to leave up to you two. Let’s just decide on a spot so we all know where we re going. @hlydon I’m going to bring some mre’s for Friday evening what do you like? I’m also going to bring some mountain house so we can have some hot food.

    Let’s do orange since it is an easier hike. There may be others that want to camp who haven't confirmed yet and who will be hiking in versus paddling.

    I eat just about anything. Thanks @dadman.

    Sounds good, I'll be there. What time y'all plan on heading out? I'll probably get there early and so I have time to kayak to the back of the lake to get a little firewood I had cut up on my last solo trip ..if it's still there.

    Not sure how accurate this gps coordinate is..I downloaded a free app...but this is what it says the orange dot is.

    The coordinates look right on Google Maps compared to your map with the orange dot.

    We plan to arrive at 2:00. I might be able to get there a bit earlier—just won’t know until the time approaches.

    Hopefully even with this rain we will have some dry wood and not too much mud.

    @dadman I have a flat griddle I usually take along...its a light weight kitchen reject I decided to add to my camp gear instead of throwing away it's good for bacon.
    As for pots..I only have my little single person stack kit that I keep in my pack along with fire kit and the normal camp stuff.
    I'll also bring a big tarp in case the weather man is wrong about this rain stopping tonight.

    I was only going to bring a small grill. I plan on bringing hamburgers and typical picnic type food unless someone objects. I assume we will all bring some type of drinks that can be shared. I’ll probably pick up some water bottles and colas.

    We will have plenty to share, so anyone who wants to stop out for a day, night, or the weekend, please do and no need to bring food.

    I might bring a bow/crossbow and sit for an hour or so Saturday or Sunday. And of course some blaze orange.

    We had a great weekend as usual. Thanks to @dadman for selecting Timber Ridge Lake and @LoneWeb for being the local guide. Our kayaks and canoe served well as pack mules. I’m fairly certain @dadman actually brought the kitchen sink.

    There was lots of good food and drinks to be had. Our Saturday fire was fantastic after we collected ample wood. You would have thought it was July, not November.

    Each morning at o’dark thirty, the blowing deer would pass by—more like hung out and blew an ample number of times to ensure without a doubt that we were completely awake. Saturday morning deer sounded as if they numbered at least a half dozen. Just in case the deer didn’t wake us, the turkey felt the need to chime in Sunday morning.

    I took a crossbow and sat along a game trail a few hundred yards from camp Saturday at dusk. No deer to be seen. Just to remind us they were still around, three deer walked into our camp Sunday morning while we conversing around the fire. They seemed to think coming within a usually very unsafe 25 yards was okay as the crossbow was already packed away.

    Our departure was a small adventure. @dadman can chime in if he likes.
