Sounds good to me, I like to do that if

(1) I can scrounge some camping gear
from friends and family

(2) I get started early enough to make it
there by a decent hour (say 6 or 7), and

(3) I can find it.

(I'm assuming I won't be able to pick an
Alabama Gazetteer until I stop at an Alabama
Wal-Mart to get my fishing license, and
there are certain incidents in the past that
suggest I may be navigationally challenged.)

"No amenities" ... I assume that means BYOPPOTT.)

(Bring your own porta-pottie or troweling tool.)

Started marking up my Peterson's last night to highlight bama fishes. <g>
