    Anytime out on a river is a good time. Remember, even a blind monkey finds a bannana once in a while. Good luck on you adventure.

    Not easy access and not too friendly locals. Put an NRA sticker on your rig and maybe pick up a license plate frame from one of the auto dealerships in PA.

    Good luck!

    Israel Keyes, the local serial killer, used to do his hunting on the hoko trails.

    Isn't there anything that you are not afraid of?

    Just because you did it and came out okay doesn't mean you were not scared!

    I have done ok on the Hoko, but I've been skunked many times.
    The locals are definitely an "interesting" bunch

    Bring booze and weed as bribes for good behavior

    Meth won't hurt either, though no promises on good behavior after bribing or not getting stabbed if they think you have more

    Sarcasm noted, but there are places where the OP residents are certainly an "eclectic" lot. Example...we owned property with a small cabin outside Shelton. One weekend we went to visit...and it was gone.

    The whole frigging cabin.

    They did leave the outhouse. And the empty propane tank. But the cabin was just a bare spot on the ground.

    SOP, You shouldn't dig on Compton like that, there are some good folks there.
    I probably shouldn't be posting this while I am driving, I might spill my drink.
