Indeed! Tread softly on these hallowed grounds. They deserve our utmost respect. Make sure you visit the nearby serpent mound. I visited that special place long ago. It literally changed my outlook on life. I promised myself never to return again. Once is enough! My spiritual experience there can never be topped. Good luck on your findings.   https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid ... =3&theater

Stefan,

 I've been to the Serpent Mound. I too would regard it is a spiritual journey. And yes, those grounds are hallowed, deserving our utmost respect. Rest assured, we will treat them that way. I'm hoping that we can assist the Arc of Appalachia in their mission to preserve the forests on the properties that they help manage.

I'm sure the Native Americans of the Eastern Woodlands would appreciate that as well. I have no doubt that your respective ideals will prove to be a perfect match made in heaven.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nIJ9KTTjCEw

Bob, Rand,

I'm getting some interest from a couple of other Ohio folks and I want to give them a specific day that the three of us will be measuring. Hopefully Steve can make it down too.

How about if Monday, Oct 27th is the main measuring day at Fort Hill? I'm available Tuesday as well and I can mop up Fort Hill or measure somewhere else that is close. Thoughts?

Letseee... late october in the midwest....

Expect anything from 75˚F and gorgeous, to 35˚F and slashing curtains of slush-balls born from the featureless, lead-grey murk of the sky on icy bursts of wind.

Cross my heart, hope to die, stick a needle in....

 Can't we sacrifice a goat or something to bring us good weather.

This blogger found an awesome looking, perhaps unknown, old-growth forest woodlot in Ohio. I don't know if it's too far from where you will be or not. Apparently it was under potential future development threat in late 2012.

Look at the size of that White Ash!

His has a lot of cool pics from various other old-growth sites in Ohio on his blog too under the old-growth pages (and some from out of state as well)!

Rand,

I plan on being at Fort Hill at 9am on Monday morning. Sound good? A few other tree enthusiasts from the Cincinnati area are planning on coming as well. I believe that Bob will be getting in later on Monday. If you're still available for Tuesday, then we can strategize our plan for Tuesday during dinner Monday night.

I plan on camping Sunday and Monday night. Email me if you want to share a campsite and I'll let you know where I'm at. Weather is looking great....knock on formica.
