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.

    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'. . .

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.
