Yet Another Maine Hang


Bradbury Mountain State Park
528 Hallowell Rd Pownal, ME 04069
October 25-27th, 2013

We've reserved the group site so bring yourself, your hammock and something to eat. Bradbury Mountain (http://bradburymountain.com/) has plenty of trails for hiking and biking.

Dogs are allowed but must be on leash at all times.

Parking fees will be waved when you mention you are with Hammock Forums.

A privy is on site and if the weather stays warm enough the park service tells me running water and showers will be available.

If you plan on attending please post your head count.

Would love to be able to join you guys but I am unsure if I will be back in the state by then being a truck driver tends to put a damper on being able to get out enjoy the outdoors

Even if you can't stay drop by and visit. Last minute arrival won't be a problem.

Group hangs are a great way to see different setups, it's an opportunity to see what you might like and might not as well as leaving with new ideas. People's gear varies wildly.

Right now, my kids are 14, 15 & 16.

It's on my calendar and will firm up early in October. Is there a sign up sheet somewhere?

I created a signup sheet for this group hang, I hope it works.

I tried to list myself but it wouldn't let me enter any anything in the cells.

RKP

It shows "View Only". Probably why you cannot enter info in columns.

attroll
09-05-2013, 09:53
I believe I fixed it now so that you can list yourself. Please try again.

Been a rough stretch health-wise, but still hoping to attend.

Even if I can only get up for one night, some time between the trees will do me good. :)

Sorry, I did not take any pictures. I don't remember seeing anyone else with a camera either. Most everyone bailed on this hang but we still had enough people to have a great time. McRat kept us entertained.

Thanks Octosaurus for setting this up.

Some good laughs, some fun discussions of gravity, Bob regained his faith in hammocking, and I finally won a raffle! Great success!

Tired from having an entire group site's worth of fun on our shoulders, but got a fair bit of rest in the hammock.

We did well.

Thanks to those who showed up for this hang. For those who tried but couldn't I hope to see you next time. I had a fun time, a lot of laughs (thanks to McRat) and got to try out my cold weather setup in actual cold weather. Next time I'll be sure to warn the park crew it is not only possible to sleep past 7am but expected!

Glad to hear that ya'll had a good time. Family circumstances may preclude our making it up next year but I'll be fighting tooth and nail to be there. Started our hanging season last weekend here in Florida and we just got below 70 for lows Friday and Saturday nights. Hope to make it up and meet up with ya'll again.

Anyone heading this way in January during MLK Jr. weekend you would be more than welcome at the 4th Annual Florida Hang. Lows only in the mid 20s the last 2 years!

McRat has started planning The Maine Hang (https://www.hammockforums.net/forum/showthread.php?t=79176) in Brunswick this April in case you missed it.

I hope that's not true and your circumstances work themselves out for the better and you make your way back up to Maine this spring. Mid 20s in Florida eh? That's my kind of sleeping weather!
