wish I could go but I have a client meeting.
Supposed to get down to around 13 tonight and gusts could hit 40 in the higher elevations so maybe 20 or 30 where we're at. And it's been snowing non stop all day. No one is currently drinking in the...
Dimjim and I just took A 3 mile hike southbound on the Appalachian Trail and turned around when the winds started gusting and the drifts were knee deep. It was awesome!
We had a tree fall over here in hot springs this morning. Thankfully no one underneath.
As far as I know it's called Hot Springs Campground. At least when I told Google to call Hot Springs Campground they answered. We will be setting up tonight
It is supposed to cool off and turn all to snow
When I talked to the woman on the phone she said when we get there to grab a map and pick out a few sites that would work for hammocks. We don't have a site picked out yet and we should be there in...
On highway 81 roads are clear dry and 40 degrees
I can confirm that we will be hanging there
There's about 10 of us headed to Hot Springs North Carolina. I called down there and they have room for everyone for the next 3 nights we are just leaving the State Park right now
We are all headed to Hot Springs Campground
We need a place to hang ASAP
Is there anywhere that we could hang tonight? I don't want to drive 11 and a half hours for nothing
The park Rangers just informed us the park is closing and we have to leave
Took a little hike up to the Appalachian...
The backpackers lot is plowed and all the roads into the park just have a thin layer of snow on them. 26 degrees and partly sunny right now
The part o John is here and waiting for us
The roads in the park are all plowed
I just drove past the backpackers parking lot and I am heading to the group campsite where the hang of is supposed to be. I just drove 11 hours and I seriously hope I'm not the only one up in these...
The door was open to the bathroom but it was locked to the ranger station inside to the left. Sorry my cell reception up here is very spotty if it takes me awhile to reply
I've never been here before and all I have is this paper map that I printed out. What is the ranger station called on the map or where is it in relation to the camp store or overnight backpackers lot
Where is the station?
I'm at the park. Roads are plowed. Highway 58 is 90% clear and salted well.
I will stop at the Rangers office as soon as I get there and keep everyone posted
Am I the only one who is going to be there? This is ridiculous.
I'm currently one hour from the park in Virginia
Should be fun!
I hope everyone isn't getting all worked up over a storm that the media is hyping to be something bigger than it is actually going to be
I'm just entering West Virginia :-) staying at a hotel in a small town then two hour drive to the park, can't wait!
I have a decent sized tarp with me. I want to say its 10 by 14 or so but I don't have any ropes to tie it out. If someone brings some extra rope then that would be awesome.
Sounds good I just took it all out and we'll leave it all at home.
Car is packed and ready to go! I brought a little firewood to contribute :-)
I'm driving 12 hours from Michigan blizzard or no blizzard =)
All wheel drive and Blizzack tires for me!!! Cant wait!
For those who are wondering about insulation I'll share my recent experience from the Minnesota Frozen Butt Hang last weekend. I spent three nights there with three very different temps and I used 3...
Can't wait for this hang and the thursday night overnight. I"ll be rocking my Dutch winter sock and for UQ i'll have a 20 degree Incubator and 40 degree Phoenix. Should be just about perfect.
cant remember if I said I was attending but I'll be at the Mt. Rogers hang this weekend so I hope you guys have a blast!
Ok guys, I'll be meeting you at 1 at the backpackers lot for the overnight, that should be awesome! Can't wait to meet everyone at the group hang after as well. =) See you all soon!
The view from our hike to section 13
I'm thinking I quite possibly shall attend. Just had a -20 night last night at the Minnesota frozen butt hang
Drop by! Me and three other hangers had a great night last night out here and I'm sure there will be folks that would love to talk hammocks =)
So...you have a gigantic pot to melt the huge ice cubes?
What's the secret to keeping gallons of water from freezing for 3 days in sub zero weather. Is just leaving it in the car good enough? I've always melted snow but I'm not keen on making pine tea...
Thats awesome!! My butt's cold just thinking about it!
Thanks. I'm not the sharpest knife in the drawer.
So that is the parking lot on at the north end of that route in the link. But I'm still confused where the hang will be. Right next to the parking lot?
Considering we're supposed to be riding together not really
Whats this solid 80% mumbo jumbo?
