I am in and looking forward to seeing everyone!
If I am hiking with a dog then I never hang any food. I guess bears, raccoons, mice and others won't come close with the dog under one of the hammocks (not under mine). Otherwise with no dog I will...
I will take it.
I have the maps for this section of the AT. I can make copies for anyone who would like a copy for the hike. I am planning on dropping a car at Gathland Saturday morning and then coming up into MAHHA...
I believe we will have two cars (so far) down at Gathland. We will figure out how to get everyone where they need to go.
Well jump in and hike some days with us!!
I am planning on carrying all my food with me, but Two Tents might try a resupply 4 days out or so…..
I am planning a hike out of MAHHA from Pine Grove down to Gathland State Park. We (TwoTents and myself) are planning 7 days, Sunday thru Saturday and hiking 10+ miles a day with the last day being a...
I would be interested too!!
The 14-16th sounds great.....it is our 4-day break!
My stand is available the 17th as well.
The ridge pole on my stand is about 14' long. My WBMJ tarp with doors is easily strung up under pole, no need for folding.
I am in Springfield and you are more than welcome to mine. I hang in mine often in the backyard with my Superfly and WBBB.
I live in Springfield and am driving up on Friday.... Pm me so we can meet.
I am going to drive up on Friday now..... No per hike, but thanks for the offer:) I will see you Friday.
It wouldn't matter that it is not as long….:)
Sounds like a great itinerary, I will give it some thought, and thank you for the offer:)
I just have to say what an incredible group of people...
I am still in for the post-hike!!
Downhill Trucker…..TwoTents is not going to be able to hike-in or attend MAHHA…..I am adjusting my hiking and not sure if I will hike in Wed/Thurs/Fri or just drive into PGF……****sigh**** not...

I will be aware of the issue at Birch Run, but I feel fine staying there with a couple of other folks.
I am hiking northbound starting on Monday from Gathland with TwoTents(hoping he will still make it). I will be behind you on Tuesday night, but should be at Rocky Mt. Shelter(hopefully)...
I am in the process of making a CRL for my tarp with Dutch Hooks and the Wasp, but am a little stuck on the prussic-tarp attachment.
Do you use a prussic on the RL and then a prussic on the tarp...
I am doing a pre-hike with Two Tents and Ben(the super dog) starting at Gathland State park on the 21st. We are planning on getting to Quary Gap Shelter Thursday night and hike into Pine Grove...
I will take it…per our PM discussion.
Just posting to revive this thread……
I am leaving Gathland on April 21st, and planning to get into Pine Grove Friday evening.
I do not have to be back at work till May 4th, so I am IN for the post hike!!
I will plan on hiking with MML and anyone else who joins in for the first couple of days, and then continue north...
We are hiking in from GATHLAND starting on the 21st!! That is a done deal:)
Would love to join you in a post hike……but needing to secure a ride back to the DC area (even the Fredrick, MD area). If anyone joins in that is headed south I would be game!!
I am planning on doing a hike in from Gathland State Park. Planning on leaving on Monday and getting into Pine Grove on Friday.
Looks like 12 mile days with one longer day around 17 miles.
So excited for Spring MAHHA!!!!
Can't wait to see everyone!
2013 was not a good year for making MAHHA's…..but this year will be different:)
****I am hiking in for the hang, so I was...

Looks like it goes to 1csleptonkayak.

Sorry..... the pack is a Large torso and the waist is a medium.
I bought this new last winter when Golite was having their sale. I have used it on one long trip and a few weekend trips.
It is the blue/steel gray color and the only wear it shows is a small...
The Allegheny Trail(330 miles long) looks like it goes right through the middle of the park. Section 2 (90 miles long) of the Allegheny Trail starts at Blackwater Falls State park and ends in Cass...
The Blackbird mile in 5 minutes flat:laugh:
I am glad to know first hand that it works. Can you give me a measurement for the right length?
Great info and thank you so much for the pictures. I know we say it didn't happen if there are not pictures, but so often I don't understand unless there are pictures.
I love this forum!
I am trying to mod a Henessey hammock from the stock suspension to a WB web suspension for a friend. My question is has anyone done this???
I was thinking that I will have to put a bigger...
I think it is MAHHA....Mid Atlantic Hammock Hangers Association;)
I am ready to see everyone!!
A Northbound hike in sounds great....what about a longer hike from Gathland into Pine Grove????? I think my work schedule will allow this, but I will be more certain...
My favorite is the WB adjustable webbing with a Dutch clips instead of carabiners. Simple!!
I tried whoopee slings, but had problems since I keep my under quilt with my hammock in a bishop bag,...
Bull Run IS OPEN. We just camped there last weekend and did some long hikes on the 18 mile Bull Run/Occoquan trail. We were the only ones not in an RV, but the shooting range is close by. They start...
Pics? Pics showing loft?
That looks so good!! That huge knob on the top is ridiculous looking....why would they design it like that?? Very nice mod....I think I am pulling the trigger on these poles. Thanks.
i will take the snakeskin's
Pics Acer.....we need pics:) Ok, I need pics to visualize what you did, sounds like nice work.
Ok, that makes sense. So now that you have answered that question, would it be possible to make a continuous loop with the amsteel doubled through the webbing buckles??
.....I really need to...
Is there any reason not to make shorter continuous loops for the webbing buckles?
When switching to the webbing buckles it seems to lengthen the suspension even more. Would there be any reason to...
Usually my newest piece of gear....which is an HG TQ Burrow 20 degree, with the "short" mod which fits my 5'7" body perfectly. This thing keeps me warm into the teens....easy.
Also have my eye on...
