    I've been pining for a jungle adventure for a few years now just watching documentaries and such, and then I read a Francisco Orellana biography a few months ago that put me over the edge. So I convinced a few guys to come with me and we'll be hiring some locals in South America to trapise through some jungle terrority in July for a couple weeks. It's actually looking like a pretty dang cheap trip so far. The planning stages have already been so shady that I know it's going to be awesome too. I might end up being a hostage of some drug cartel or something by not going with a travel agency tour guide or something, but hey, that's the type of risk you can take when you don't have any dependents.

    That could be an awesome trip, Duck. I've done it about a dozen times on self-guided archaeological trips. <------ I'll leave that at that.

    If you go on any hikes.. take pics of anything written in the rocks (carved, not painted) that might look old.

    Never stayed at Diamond Fork but the campground actually looks pretty bad ass on a drive through. It's very tight with tons of vegetation to give that secluded fill. Busy as hell though.

    Payson Lakes has a very unique vegetation too. Unlike the usual Utah Pine-Aspen-sage mix. Check the stocking reports and you can get your fill of rulers.

    Anyone done Fantasy Canyon? Can't believe this isn't as popular as Goblin Valley. Plus the fishing up that way is bad ass. Not many places left in Utah to hook into good sized pan fish.

    I have never had as good of experiences with pure-breds as mixed. Best dog, ever, was a mixed Siberian/Shephard.

    Diamond fork is a great place to camp, but you are correct about it being crowded. The fishing in the river has gotten much better in the last 5 years and now there are quite a few cutthroats to go along with the browns.

    Payson is way too crowded and i usually only camp there in the middle of the week, i always catch alot of fish there, but they are all planters and small so its not the one of my favorite places for the fishing, but i think it is one of the prettiest places around

    That sounds like a very cool mix!

    Just stay out of Venezuela and Columbia. Personally I'd choose brazil, upper Rio Negro area.
