Thanks for all the reponses ya'll. Sounds like no one is ready to go right away, I'd say lets start think about dates in October/November (more hunters will be out in November). I have not particular plans then, I should be free most weekends. Spring would work for me too, I just hate to wait that long. If you guys have specific dates you can or can't come let me know.
I'm thinking we should eliminate Caprock and the Wichita Mtns. they aren't close to anyone and that would be a long drive from SE Texas (its a decent drive from Dallas already). That leaves us with Lost Maples, Lone Star Trail and the Ouchita Mtns. I figure the Ouchitas would be better if we actually want to do so real hiking, more trails, more water etc. They aren't too long a drive for me but if you're in SE Texas that might be too much, let us know.
