Put me on the list. Hopefully I'll have and a UQ and a TQ by then. I'd bring my dog but but he just can't get comfortable in a hammock.
Do you guys think this is comfortably doable with a pad, 20 degree sleeping bag, maybe a PLUQ, and a diamond tarp? Would I freeze without doors? I'd love to try joining a group hang, but I can't invest in much cold-weather hammock gear. Are there any upcoming Fall NJ hangs?
I plan to be there again, even if only for the outrageous food! Had a ball last time, and fond memories of rocking by the 18 foot campfire! Might have to plan it a little better, this year, though .... coming down from Boston for only one night seemed a bit rash. LOL!

Doors shouldn't be an issue, it's normally not that windy there.
The nice part of it is, you drive into camp so you can bring extra blankets with you. No need to buy a whole bunch of new stuff, just bring stuff from home.

Fall MAHHA in October. It was a great time last year.

So bring what you have, and trust me, no one will let you freeze.
Doors do make a difference - I had Tyvek Grizz Beaks at last year's hang. Outside it was 22, but inside my tarp it was 29 degrees.
Like Silent Orpheus said, I'll probably bring every piece of gear I own. You will no doubt be well taken care of, should you dare to join.
The biggest worry is getting stuck in the sugar sand. SilentOrpheus and a Piney Samaritan had to dig me out on one trip to Batona.
Pray for snow!
I assume there'll be enough Amsteel around to pull just about anyone out of anything (without losing their bumper). Plus the four-wheel drivers will have plenty of tow ropes!
This newbie is super stoked.
