Also, there is a dead tree across road inside water management property. I will have to bring chain saw and cut it when we all drive to take out. We are not going to park at usual spot. We will drive to dead river and park by the Alapaha so we can be close to hike.

I will also bring a chainsaw.

Heading out in a few minutes. See you there.
