View Full Version : When is your next trip?
Just thought I would start a thread on when people plan to get out next. I am planning a weekend trip to the Washington coast next month, around the middle of Feb. I expect lots of rain. lol. This will be a good opportunity to test some new gear.

I'll be hiking this weekend, Feb. 1,2,&3. Going to start where the AT crosses US 64, 10 miles west of Franklin N. C., at Winding Stair Gap. I live 4 hours from Franklin. I plan to leave Saturday morning and reach Winding Stair Gap around noon. I'll go as far as I can Sat. afternoon, camp for the night, then start early Sunday morning and hike til mid day. Around mid day I'll turn aroud and head back, camp for the night, then hike back to the car Monday morning. The weather forecast looks great - highs in the 50's and lows in the 30's. Anyone that can make it is welcome to join me.
Doing a trip in April to Havasupai Falls for three nights. A few tune up hikes before to work out the kinks. Will be taking my "Gearskin" on it's first real test.
I'm currently working out the logistics of a extended hike in
Alaska, within the next month. Most likely around Feb 15. ;)
Planning to move to AK on a perm basis this summer, so I
thought an extended hike would be a good way to recon the
options available to me. :D

As soon as I get my gear sorted out I'm going to hit Big Cypress Preserve down here in Florida. In July my Wife and I are going to Belize for ten days, I still have to figure out where and when I'm gonna get deep in the jungle on that one... But I'm Stoked!!
I'm going to the field for gunnery on the 1st. I'll be out until about the 11th. I plan to sleep in a hammock and eat lots of pasta cooked on an alcohol stove.
I just got back last week from the Big Cypress Preserve. A hiking buddy has a big hunting camp there. We had our 4th annual Hobo Central Swamp Days out there. I'll be on Springer 19 March. Gonna hike back home here in Damascus.
