he he he, I found my archive from when I found it and counted the "river" crossings.  I only counted them if they had running water in them.

To let everyone know, when I went out last weekend only Boswell Creek had water in it.  All the other smaller drainages were relatively dry.  We've had a small rain this week but I don't think it would have much affect.  Just watch your step going in & out of the gullies.

Nice map Dave!

:D TD

Someone somewhere has a picture of me after I slid down the gully that had turned to liquid clay.  I hope there are lots of cameras on the trip!  Make sure Ty gets a group shot from the archery stand!

He can't go  :(. But I'm sure one of us will have a timer on our camera!

I took GQ's advise and ran out to get the Camelbak on sale at REI. When I was there at lunch today, there were 5 purple and 1 charcoal. Thanks for the heads up.

Is anyone doing anything special because of hunting season? Not sure if we needed to be in dayglo orange!!  :D

Day Glo orange won't go with my ensemble  :D. Anyway, Ty_Dolney says its not as important right now because its bow season not gun season.

We would suggest that those that have radios take them. When we scheduled the mass assault last spring, we found radios to be a huge help in keeping the large group "together". We had hikers of all speeds, and the radios allowed everyone to hike at there own pace, without feeling like they needed to slow down for others or speed up. The group was able to stay intouch, and that made the experience very enjoyable.

As much as this is killing me I have to back out of this event and it is certainely not my idea.  Last Sunday while caching I had an accident ( I am ok) but on  bedrest waiting for3 ribs to heal and my DR will not release me so that I can go.  Actually I think my husband paid her off.  :D  So have a great time, take lot of pictures and be safe

Sorry to hear that, TK.  We will take lots of pictures and imagine the whole trip your hiking right with us.  Hope to see you soon, and I hope you recover quickly so you can get right back on the horse.

Yeah, I decided to re-solve it, because I didn't want to be stuck out there, though I am sure Tx Secsy will have it done right.  I hope we aren't trying to redo the coords in the woods out there, I already did that once and it wasn't fun.  As for giving them away, I promise no cheating.  I hope to be out your way soon, I'll let you know when and we can do a cache lunch or something, haha, a mini-impromptu.  See ya soon.

I have more than one radio, I'm sure others will as well.  I don't think you should go out and purchase some just for this hike, unless you see your self using them in the future for something.  Two or three would be more than enough and I think we will have at least that many.

I doubt you guys will be separated as you regroup at each waypoint.  The only time our group separated was for a geowyz break.

Just dropping another note to let ya'll know that I'll be showing up at 8AM Saturday morning.  I have 2 radios, if I can remember to get them.  I'm making a lunch dash to Oshmans to see if I can find a camelbak.  OH and instead of all high protein snacks, I'm bringing CHOCOLATE, for a pick-me-up!  :o 

Can anyone tell me if the camelbak will fit under a backpack very well? 

As far as puzzles, I'm horrible at them so I usually skip them, but I'll see what I can come up with on this one.

I can't wait for Saturday, See ya'll then!  ;D
