Beginner Backpack Part 3of3 Final....Cross Timbers Trail (Lake Texoma)

Overview: Final event for Beginner Backpack class. This event is a short trip backpack, approx 1 hour from the marina. That means you must support yourself. We will be primitive camping, NO bathrooms, NO restaurants, NO water, NO shelter will be provided. So bring a tent or find a tent buddy, sleeping stuff, great eats to cook over the fire or pack a sandwich, your fav alcohol drink, flashlights and personal care items. If you are going to want an item you have got to carry it in, did I mention water (.5 gallon min). After camp is set we have a community wood gathering for 30 min, Happy Hour ( bring a snack to share) the rest of the evening will be spent contemplating life and the world as we know it while we sit a round the fire and enjoying spirits..lol. Do not sign up if you will not make the trip,,,, yes I'm talking to you....

Trip Rating: Easy (good trip for beginners)

Meeting Location: Cedar Bayou Marina at 2:00 PM and hike about 2 miles to camp.

Directions to Meeting Location:

    Am already here at Gene's on 377.
    FYI:
    Map on iPhone overshoots you to another gate that is closed.
    Better to follow signs off 377 to marina.
    iPhone without signal at marina.
    Just sayin'. . .
