TRIP REPORT: 5th Annual Texas Butt Bake

Thanks to Polkster and Big Dawg for providing some of the material. I've got more, but this thing started running long. If I can figger out a sensible way of doing it, I'll do another with some of the omitted footage.

Fantastic, and hilarious! Looks like tons of fun despite the heat and humidity. The opposite survival challenge from a frozen butt hang, but at least cooling off in the lake helped Y'all out some!

At 9:30-10:30, you are hiking in the woods, are you like just south west of the EDIT: LAKE in the lake's drainage, and just east of the road on the west side of the map? If not, where on the map were you? ( I ask because I'm a topo map freak, weird I know! )

The Lake was awesome from about 8pm til about 2pm. Late afternoon the lake was like soup, you had to actively disturb the water below the thermocline for it to not be hot.

Sarge,
According to your video, the Butt Bake was supposed to represent hanging in our worst extreme local weather.
Does this mean that if we get another tropical storm coming ashore nearby that we should have a stormy, wet butt hang?
Or hurricane force winds would need to be documented with a blown butt hang?
And if we do hang in 70 kt or above winds, chow does one get in a horizontally blown hammock rather than one that normally hangs down?
What is the best rainfly/tarp and how is it anchored for 70 kt + winds?

Challenges.

I love challenges.

Scheduling would be a bit problematic. It would have to be a spur of the moment thing.

But hey! As long Is we can have biscuits and gravy in the morning---

We are right where the track crosses the creek south of the lake, to the west of the road coming into the lake. A couple yards down the track going west, we turn north towards that smaller pond to the west of the lake. The green line on the scale below the map is the elevation change. You can see how much below the level of most of the rest of the terrain at that point. Its a pretty deep pond.

Thx! Looks like I had it right except I didn't know which road you came in on, now I do. What are the small brown marks that look like railroad tracks, that go mostly SE-NW with some going west across the south end/outlet of the lake? Railroad tracks? A walk way?

Those are Forest Service Roads used by loggers. There are also roads shown as double dashed lines, which are marked as FS Roads, but are largely unused. Most of them are old jeep tracks from back in the day when folks could get away with stuff like that out there. I love to explore them. Most are being reclaimed by The Creator, so I kinda feel like I'm the last guy who might tread on them.

Man oh man, I used to love those kinds of roads using my 4WDs back in the 80s out in AZ in particular. There were almost endless tracks, unmaintained old dirt or jeep roads that we were free to travel on, through the millions of acres of FS land, either heavily forested or desert.. That was so much fun!
