I'm just throwing this out there...who'd be up for a group hang in east Texas sometime? There's the Davey Crockett, Sam Houston, Angelina, and Sabine National Forests, the Big Thicket, and Caddo Lake.

There are options for paddling in and hanging out with the gators, as well as dryer locations for those who'd rather hike in. There's even a spot I know where folks could mountain bike or ride a horse in.
