SC & FL Swamps
Went to Florida last week...
2 days to get there, 2 days to be there, 2 days to get back.
On the way down I hung in Congaree Swamp National Park.
Nice place, lots of trails, excellent campground for a group hang.
Had a nice ride to Florida along the pre-interstate route.
Hung two nights in Florida, one of which was near the mouth of the Suwanee River.
I had to use two trees that were not far enough apart, so I hung on the sides of the trees.
On the way back, I stopped overnight in the Francis Marion National Forest, at Hell Hole Bay Wilderness.
I didn't get any pics of the hang, because I got there right at dark. Had to set up and get inside to escape the mossies!
I left before the sun came up the next morning.
Here is how I packed. I used six Swiss Army bread bags, three on a side.
Two of them have one sneaker each, so I didn't have to wear boots all the time.
One more contains my clothing, and in another is a motorcycle cover.
The last two hold bedding and tarp. The hammock is strapped on the seat.
