I got a last minute invite to join John, Maggie, and Tasha for 3 days on Tanner, Beamer and LCR. Of course I was all in and grabbed the packraft. The hike down Tanner was smooth and then over to Comanche Creek for camp on the first night. Nice spot to spend the first night and get ready for day hike to the LCR.

Next day we grabbed our day packs and hiked the Beamer Trail towards the LCR. It's about 8 miles one way with some tough sections of trail as it crosses several drainage's. So it took fair amount of time and energy to make the LCR which was awesome blue when we arrived. Upon arriving John struck conversation with some boaters who were awesome and offered them a ride back to our camp. They offered me a ride but I didn't haul the packraft all the way down there for nothing. They even told me that if I dumped they would pull me out and grab my boat. Fortunately that didn't happen but I did go through some rough water that I originally planned to portage. I'll echo what John said that it was great to run this section of river together and it will be difficult to top the experience!

Back at camp we all enjoyed the another evening with some extra fun experiences to talk about. Next morning we packed up and headed up for the hike out. Pretty straight forward hike from Comanche back to Tanner Trail and then the long slog back to Lipan Point. A couple of breaks on the way up on top of the Redwall and then again right before the last climb. Made it out around 3pm tired but with another great trip in the books!!
