March Hang at Springer Mtn.
Are you within driving distance to Springer Mtn.?
A few buddies and I are planning a 2 or 3-knighter on the BMT ( Benton MacKaye Trail )
I am planning a march date because I am out of vacation for this year.
we will be doing some car-camps to test new hammocks and other equipment and I will post those as well if you like.... we have a sweert spot picked out in the Chattahoochee National Forest right on top of a water source.
Right now we are simply in the "hey-let's-go-do-a-three-knighter-on-the-BMT" stage.
no set number of days as of yet
dogs ARE welcome (I love dogs)
Not sure if we want to do a destination hike and make it a loop, or a scenic hike and simply hike in and camp a night or two and then turn around and hike out.
I am simply planting a seed.
once we have more details I will post a PDF of the map to get to the parking area (on the side of Springer) it is real easy to find and not far about 45 minutes) from the entrance to Amicalola State Park.
I will post other details as they come up.
Car-Camp is scheduled (last minute I know)
Here is a map on how to get into the Chattahoochee National Forest:
The road with the cabins opens into the forest. After a mile or so into the forest is a fork in the road.
YOU HAVE GONE TOO FAR...
Maybe a half a mile is where we will be. you will see an open area on the right. we will not be seen from the road. The area is quite secluded. If anyone plans to go, I will mark the trail as best as I can.
If you plan on going, PM me and I will give you my cell # for the specific details. Verizon service is great but T Mobile and ATT service.... not so good.
As of now, it will be me and a buddy from church. so the more the merrier.
Friday night when we can get there. Sat stay where we are and Sunday morning we wake up early and head back to town for church.
So this will be a quickie two-nighter to test out equipment and food in preparation for the March trip.
