Just to throw in a follow up, my brother and I will be attending (regardless of the date).
I just sent in my order for my first hammock and my brother may be looking to convert. Most gear/techniques will be new to me (and him) so anything with some in camp downtime (aka gawk at other's gear) would be cool. We are born and raised in the region (Northwest Indiana) and have just started to get back into the outdoors/backpacking. We've only visited Low Gap Trail (last year) so far in Souther Indiana. As far as we are concerned, anything in a forest is a welcome change of scenery so feel free pick any place. I am sure everyone will be happy in the end.
