I'm good with any of the three. I think the bride would probably go for Ratcliff you know that when you got the estrogen poisoning you just can't get too far from a porcelain toilet. I haven't made Boykin Springs and I don't know what the conditions are at that location but I can tough out anything.

I'm out probably until September. Things may change, but summer is pretty booked up already. I'd love to see Boykin Springs though, and possibly take a hike to the Aldridge sawmill.

IMO state parks are out of the question. They are far too restrictive. Many don't allow ground fire regardless of any burn bans. Plus some of us like our fire water without worries of repercussion.
Fear not gang. If anything we always have East Texas to call home.

CTX is not an option this time fellas. But I don't think I'll be making this or even the next one. I have a lot of PTO I have to take over the next few months. I'm a groomsman and have some family stuff planned. Gotta hold onto what PTO I have left for the end of the year.

But, on the bright side it may actually be clear when you guys are out there.
