    As for e trail , is it gravel or dirt? I'm asking because I have a jet sled I can haul gear or water, but not on gravel. I bought it for hauling deer out of the woods. Works great for teestands too.

    LMAO - I was just thinking of that spectacular image while I read the post. Would have made that my profile pic forevermore.

    I'll be arriving ~ dusk so might also be night hiking out. If anyone gets there first and establishes some common ground then please post coordinates here. Maybe post some kind of marker at the trail?

    Looks like a favorable forecast, so I'll probably be sporting a simple tarp +/- hammock. I do have Sunday morning plans at Caesar Creek SP, but not committed so might opt for shenanigans/hiking at Wildcat if anyone sticks around after breakfast. Just have to hit highway by sunset.

    Re: water.
    Thanks for the intel; will pack extra drinking water, and can help shuttle some extras back/forth, etc...

    I'll be in the white jeep with the BCUSA sticker on the rear window...

    Ok it looks like I'm gonna take a half day at work Friday and I should get there around 8:30-9ish. I am scheduled to work Saturday but I won't have to leave for work till around 2pm and will be back afterwards around 1am. I'll hang out till around noon Sunday.

    Work was brutal today. I won't make it out until either very late tonight or very early tomorrow. My buddy Jared (not on forums) is planning to get there tomorrow morning too.

    Sorry we didn't make it down there. Everyone wasn't done until late. Bummed because I just bought my first hammock and wanted to try it out and maybe get some tips.

    How did everybody do down there?

    I didn't get any pics but it was a great time. It was just myself, @dadman, @DrJosh, and his buddy Jeremy.

    The area was loaded with wild edibles, and there were songbirds singing like crazy all day, it sounded like a tropical rainforest. The second night there were 4 or 5 barred owls talking which was really cool too.

    I really wanted to be out there with you guys. I went home from work Thursday with an upset stomach.....fell asleep and pretty much slept through until the next day at 10ish. Went to work for an important delivery and some live specimen chores. Went home and slept another 12 hours straight. Never felt right all weekend and apparently slept on my neck in an odd position since I couldn't turn my head left or right all weekend.

    I always feel bad when I say I want to come and some health issue gets in the way. My apologies to everyone. I am glad to hear you guys had a good time.

    Actually, his name is Jared... :p
    He also has all those pics of the plants and whatnot.

    Had fun meeting up; thanks Blackhawk45hunter for all the plant ID education, and thanks dadman for lugging that cart of food/water out there through the mud! Good times around the campfire until suddenly my batteries died and I was out like a light - slept great under the tarp. :)

    Driving through TN on my way to TX right now, but hoping to make a few good backpacking trips to Red River Gorge, maybe Archer's Fork, maybe Lake Vesuvius again before fall...
