the windmill so yes, you shouldn't have any problem finding a
suitable hammock spot. The creek is now flowing though, so you wont
be able to hike in the wash as per my earlier suggestion. The good
news is with the creek flowing you wont have to have a dry camp at
Reeds water, which is not a reliable spring, usually.

I tried living in Ft. Lauderdale-- teaching at Broward
Community College and Florida Atlantic
University-- --but, allergies drove me out.
At that time the Nicaraqua Contra war ended-lots of
supplies ended up on the market. I found a person
selling at the Plantation Flea Market--what is called
a swap meet out west---a pirate's wharf on the Gulf
Coast. He charged $5/#10 can. I bought many cases. I
wish I had bought many more.
Starting to run low exc. on scrambled eggs---so,
recently bought a case of freeze dried cottage cheese.
The instructions say to mix with water at at least 72
degrees F. That wasn't available-so, after using a
steripen I tried mixing with Superstitions creek water
and found the curds just floated. You can eat
dry---sort of a sweet/sour taste. Very light for its
