Some initial conversations have started taking place about planning the next Goat Island Hang. With some thoughts about the dates, a decision to have it a bit sooner this year was made to avoid sleeping in warm-hot temps. Currently the idea is to plan this event the weekend before Memorial Day ( May 20th - 22nd ) as we want to avoid the holiday traffic on the lake. Hoping that will be warm enough to enjoy the lake during the day yet cool enough in the evenings to enjoy the campfire at night and sleep soundly through the evening.
Goat Island is only reachable by boat and the parking area for this hang is located directly across from the island, about a 15-20 minute paddle. There is also a boat ramp for those that wish to arrive by "mechanical power" instead of "human power". Hoping to have enough notice in planning this event that we may have a few motor boats out there to assist with shuttling for those that do not have access to a boat but would like to attend. Worst case scenario. . . the REDNECK SKI will be available . . .
