Bastrop State Forest - Carpool Hancock Shopping Ctr

As always bring good shoes and plenty of water for you and pets. Entrance fee is $4.

GPS for North side of Hancock parking lot (other side from HEB entrance) -[masked],[masked]

GPS for Bastrop Park Entrance -[masked],[masked]

I will be at Hancock Center north at 7:30 AM.

After meeting at the park entrance we will drive to the lost pines overlook and hike the lost pines trail.  We will hike between 3 and 4 hours and see how well the forest has recovered. Trail map can be found at:

Topics:

- NSA can retrieve, replay all phone calls from the past 30 days, now if I could only get them to set up automatic reminders.

- The cancer gene BRCA1, which keeps tumors in the breast and ovaries at bay by producing proteins that repair damaged DNA, may also regulate brain size. What a choice?

- So I'm thinking about DIY transcranial direct current stimulation to boost creativity.  Am I crazy, or maybe will be soon?

There are places we could grab lunch on 71 on the way back - for those who are interested (Little Thailand, Cindy's Gone Hog Wild)

Anything I forget?

    Just today a new article on the effectiveness of DIY transcranial direct current stimulation, the actual journal article is paywalled though:

    Assuming I'm fully recovered from whatever bug I've gotten, I'll be camping at Bastrop this weekend. Joining up for the Sunday hike at the park would be awesome. I'll hold off on RSVP just in case this bug sticks around and I end up cancelling out.
