For anyone willing to make the drive down tomorrow (Sat - 10.24.09), he just sent an announcement that his little viewing / education event is 'on' again. John's place is an incredible treat for anyone interested in CPs & eastern native plants. He's using his personal pond/bog as a showcase for all kinds of plants. Other than maybe ABG, I doubt you'd find a greater variety of eastern North American cp's than at John's. Steve's pics only represent a fraction of what's actually present at the site ... truly a 'must see' place ...

My sleeping bag would have kept me nice and warm. I took the one that I have slept on snow before and actually was hot.
This was the problem:

If I got caught with the hammock I was going to tell them I did not know that..... But they made me read and sign the rules before giving me my site... So it was a good thing that I took the tent, which I had along just in case.
I just had a Sarrgasm!
