    Memorial Day Weekend Join Jeff Holmes and the Floatilla for "Under a Low Country Moon 2009". We'll tour Francis Marion National Forest, tell ghost stories, learn about ecology, and have a moonlight, fire-side concert Saturday evening, after all the night creatures have gone to bed. Plus, NEW this year: a Sunday Night Ghost Tour of SC's haunted Low Country (including perhaps a trip to Alice's Grave?) The basics: Place: Hellhole Swamp National Wilderness Area, Francis Marion National Forest, Berkeley County, SC Directions: Drive 6 miles north of 402/41 intersection near Huger (pronounced "hyoo-jee") on Highway 41, turn right on Hellhole Road, campground is 100 yards on right Recommended Lodging: Holiday Inn Express, Monk's Corner, SC Recommended Camping: Hellhole Campsite (primitive- no hook-ups or facilities) Bring: sunscreen, insect repellent, food, drink (lots of water!), binoculars, camera/camcorder, sturdy comfortable footwear, lightweight light-colored clothes, and a light jacket for evening. The schedule: OK, part of the beauty of snake hunting is to go wherever, whenever, with no schedule. To make matters more slack, we'll be in the Low Country where the local lifestyle mandates that we surrender to the "pall of lethargy" that prevails over all. All that being said, I guess we still need a schedule. Here it is, the Hellhole '07 Agenda (NOTE: All times are tentative with an "or whenever" implied): Friday, May 22: 5:30 pm: Hotel guests depart Holiday Inn Express, Monks Corner, having already eaten or bringing their dinner along 6:00 pm: Hotel guests, campers, and commuters rendezvous at the Hellhole campground (there are directions somewhere on this messageboard) Assign teams to guides for the evening. 6:10-10:00pm?
