Went on a site survey; got destroyed by chiggers n ticks more than I ever have on any single hike. Land owners were clear cutters. Awful.

The red was looking great yesterday. Wish I had time to go to Muir today.

Hang Em High Horse Camp, or White Oak Boat in; north a bit from there near Horse Lick Creek is the S-tree primitive camps, it's actually quite nice.
If you want large, then of course you're back to state park and lake campgrounds.

I'm looking for info regarding backcountry camping in the DBNF London District, preferably near Buck Creek.  Bee Rock and Rockcastle Campgrounds are both closed and we'd prefer to camp more primitively. Little Lick is small and best suited for horses.
Suggestions?

Search continues for missing man in RRG...
« on: July 26, 2018, 10:15:09 PM »

Les Reynolds has been missing since Tuesday evening in the Indian Staircase area of the gorge.

If anyone has plans for this area, officials are asking hikers to avoid this area, including the Sheltowee Trace north of the suspension bridge.  Also, the Bison Way trailhead is being used for "command central" for the SAR teams and is not available for parking.

I was actually planning a trip from that TH, so now I'm here researching Plan B in case the search continues into the weekend.

From the Wolfe County SAR Team Facebook page:

"MISSING PERSON UPDATE: We are sorry to report the subject was located by a dog team this morning at approx 6:00 am and he was deceased. Indications are that he may have slipped coming down an embankment and struck his head where he had a pre-exiting injury from an automobile accident several years ago. Please keep his family and all responding units in your thoughts and prayers. A special thanks to Neil Alexander and Bill Reed for bringing in a highly effective cadaver dog early this morning. The location the subject was found in would have been nearly impossible for search teams to have visually found him."

So tragic. :(
