    Ok... so there is a cluster of hangers in PA. Please feel free to include me in any group stuff that gets planned. I am kind of halfway between Harrisburg and Tioga. Lewisburg is right across the river.

    My daughter would like to do some canoe camping this summer. I have a open, flat water boat that she wants to get out in. The Susquehanna is only about a 150 feet from my house. But I don't know the river well enuf to know where to camp and how reasonable it would be.

    I guess some of this depends on whether a HH owner is allowed in the claytor/clark world.. :?)

    My daughter is a ground dweller, in part cause we don't have two hammocks.

    I have a "base camp" type trip planned for the Haystacks at the end of Loyalsock trail in a couple of weeks. Let me know if you are interested in getting together with me on that.

    Hi RamblinRev,
    I have floated and camped from the liverpool area down to City Island. There are some great spots on the islands for camping down there. Call Mary at Blue Mountain Outfitters and they will direct you to some nice camping spots and provide a shuttle if it is just you and your daughter. If someone plans a group float/camp, I would be happy to lend your daughter a HH or CC LEX. My son is 12 and uses a CC LEX with great results. Kayaking and hammock camping are 2 of my 3 favorite things to do(not counting family). Add smallie fishing and I am in heaven.

    Lone Wolf,

    Can you PM me with info on Mary and Blue Mountain Outfitters. I have a bass boat, but am interested in a canoe float trip with my son for fishing & wilderness (not campground) camping. I have no interest in camping in a pre-determined spot with total strangers. I’d prefer to get away alone with my son (or perhaps meet with some of the folks here).

    Do they provide canoes? Can you keep them over one or several nights? What rivers do they work on? Any info & contact numbers would be great.

    Thanks,

    Edit: I looked them up on-line.

    and i like the kind of view you had from your hammock better too.
    I’ve already slept on their couch, and I DID sleep better in the hammock ( the owner snores very loudly).

    The weather shield and tarp blocked most of my good view. If confident in the forecast, do you guys often hang without the tarp set at all? Or do you just hang it high?
