3 Days in "Paradise" with The Hippy

Post by Hippy » Sep 09 2012 2:51 pm

November 9/10/11 2012 (Fri/Sat/Sun)

I'll be leading a troupe into the Supes for 3 days of fun, hiking, exploring (and cartwheels, can't forget the cartwheels!) So of course everyone is welcome and encouraged to join us.

Day 1 (friday)
Roughly 2 1/2 hour drive from Peoria (where I live) so we'll plan on a 4am depart from home for an early start.
Depending on who all will join us I may opt to leave the night before (because I love night hiking : rambo : ) but we'll take a vote.

We will begin at Reavis Trailhead (Reavis Ranch Via North #109) it's roughly a 9 mile hike to Reavis Ranch, there we will set up base camp

Day 2 (saturday)
From our base camp at Reavis Ranch we will head out to visit Circlestone and finish it up with a group bagging of Mound Mountain's peak at 6,266 feet. Shouldn't take the entire day to do this but we'll use the entire day to explore.

Day 3 (sunday)
Lazy morning of exploring the area followed by the 9 mile hike back to the vehicle(s) at Reavis Trailhead and home in time for supper!


3 days in the Supes, doesn't get any better than this....well, unless you're Elisha Reavis a century or so ago... :D

@Sredfield
One of the Triplogs said that he brought in all of the Booze for the Trip, and they were up there for at least 4 days, because JJ saw them on Thursday. I'd say he carries quite a bit.... :sweat:
Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty & well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, totally worn out & proclaiming, "Wow What a Ride!"

The goat Winston carried around 40 lbs in. The owner, I believe his name was Cameron, said he moves fairly slow when hiking. The good thing is Winston grazed all weekend so they didn't need to bring any food.

After Chumleys post I would have to say no more cookies.

I just saw a video of one of my cousins in Norway. So for those of you at HippyHAZfest, you can now see that it's genetic. :D
