    Nadene, We are only 3 people signed up for this hike so I have asked Dan to cancel it. As an alternative you can do the Dockery Lake Trial. As for the camping I will stay at DeSoto Falls Campground but I'm flexible based on others that my camp on the Dockery Lake hike.

    Ron, I just checked and camping at Vogel is sold out. There is DeSoto Falls Campground a few miles south on 129. Its first come, first served, no reservation site. Looks nice.

    Dan asked me to be the point of contact for this event. I plan to camp at Vogel and do the Andrew's Cove on Sunday. Conni, are you still going to camp? Since we are a small group we can discuss what hike to pick. 6 are currently signed up, are you all still on?
    Hope to see you at Vogel.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
