I brought my gun. actually two. The law was recently changed to allow guns into national forest land. I have never shot at anytime at anything. I carry it for a snake surprise but I have had none yet.

The longest 36 mile blackwater trip is 80 dollars for two people total. That includes a canoe. I recommend a plastic canoe because it will flex over the many stumps you will hit. I would volunteer to go along but I am antisocial.
Sad

It takes about 3 days but you could easily do it in 2.

What about a few hours trip? I'd fall over if I had to paddle for 2 or 3 days.

PB, that was a great story. Thanks for sharing.

Now Az, I get the gun and the crisco but I see it was just a joke Laughing

$80 is not that bad. much cheaper than I thought.

Thanks for the info, all I got to do now is find someone who will go with me.

Ive always wanted to go canoeing overnight. I have the whole thing planned out in my head. its kind of like a bucket list thing for me. Just a weekend trip. small tent. blow up doll to lay on. a small grid to cook on. a small cooler with a couple of T-bone steaks, some red bell peppers. box of sausages for breakfast. and a bottle of captain morgan rum.

yep thats it. plus a fishing pole.

A blow up doll? LOL

Camping wouldn't be so bad if you didn't have to sleep on the ground and it wasn't so hot.

You know there are lots of ghosts out at Blackwater and they are pissed off. Watch out.

My shoe collection says hi.

My fav fiction book is...

Enders Game by Orson Scott Card

It's sci-fi. But I know lots of non sci-fi enthuiasts that have read it and enjoyed it, because it's just a good story.

When I think of favorite books, _Gone With the Wind_ always comes to mind. Geez, how I loved that book when I was a teen.

When we would canoe camp, my brother and his wife would stand there watching Christine and me and wait until they see where we pitch our tent. They would then find the opposite end of the sand bar to pitch their tent.

(Something about getting away from that bear loudly snoring in the woods.) ;-)

I listened to that on audiobook. My wife just rattled off a list of follow up books to Ender's Game. (If you want more Ender books, they're available.)

While the sequel, 'Speaker for the Dead' is a good story, it doesn't have near the intensity of the first book. Never before have I seen an author change style and tempo so dramatically within the same series. I know there are many more books in the succesful series, but what I've read doesn't measure up to Ender's Game.

Dcat, have you read Hellstrom's Hive by Frank Herbert of Dune fame?

It's a pretty suspenseful read, but the ending could have been better.

Yo, no I haven't. I've seen the movie Dune of course. But I haven't read any of his books. I'll have to check it out.

Dune, the movie was good, but I wouldn't put it up there with the best. Something about it... maybe it was too long, I dunno.
