Well be hiking, frying fish, smoking some chickens, shooting skeet, etc... We are on 66 next to the school. If anyone is gonna be up there, stop by and say hey. We'll be there a few days!
Those creeks amaze me .... Where I used to hunt we had an old wooden bridge you had to cross to get to the camp... It wasn't elevated, it just laid flat in the creek... The creek was up from raining and some young guys tried to cross it in a jeep... It flipped the jeep down the creek !! I think they had the doors off and bailed out and were ok but it could have been bad...

Unlike a mud bottom creek where the water doesn't penetrate deep into the ground, a sandy bottom creek allows the water to penetrate DEEP. I have a large creek like this on my lease. I can't cross it until 2 days after a hard rain.

I was on a canoe trip back in high school and found my self crotch deep in soft sand and navel deep in water. I hopped out of the canoe, thankfully bare foot, didn't realize my first foot was not going stop sinking until I was of the boat. I think I would still be there if I had been wearing boots or had not hung on to the canoe.

The experience gave me real awarness of sand bottom creeks.

Got stuck in some of that sandy muck last yr. too, ruined the zippers on both of my snake boots, gotta be careful, I got a collapsable hiking staff from my brother for Xmas, that fits in my pack, great piece of kit for Tunica or other uneven terrain.

I did the same thing scouting this summer in MS. Crossed the creek fine but coming back in the same stretch the sand gave way & I was waist deep in a hurry. Not something I'd want to do in the winter.
