Sunday, March 12leave from DFW early in the morning and arrive at BBCache water at Homer Wilson
In addition to the possible start at Homer Wilson, an alternative starting point is the Dodson/Juniper Canyon intersection. It's harder to get to. That automatically makes it less likely to have a crowd.
Semi-hijacking as I am the friend tagging along with jmsamis.... do any of yall have any recommended reading re: big bend/backpacking in general? I'm more of a noob to the backpacking scene than my friend (done lots of camping and one intense backpack trip in colorado) and i would love to get a good book or something about big bend so to make our trip more interesting and appreciate it all more.
The way it was explained to me last time, when they have to make a change to your pre-entered permit, it has to be completely re-done, negating any time advantage. This may be government propaganda because he also said I should not be accessing their system and wanted to know where we got the link. Whatever ranger boy.......
Another feature of this software will allow visitorsto plan their backcountry excursions on their owndevice and upload it to where the ranger will be ableto access it. This feature should result in the visitorsgiving more thought ahead of time about exactlywhere they want to hike. We hope that it willreduce waiting time for Backcountry Permits uponarrival, however, it is not a reservation system. Itis easy for anyone to see which campsites are availableand for rangers and dispatch to access all permitinformation immediately. You can check out thisweb-based system at http://220.127.116.11
