Cool pics, NCP. I took Short Stuff camping at Davidson River CG in Transylvania Co. at the beginning of August last year. We hammocked there and spent a lot of time in the water, especially up around Sliding Rock and Looking Glass Falls to beat the heat in the water.
Don't forget, I know where to get at least 3 shades of pink ripstop when you want it. Just give me a yell and I'll make it happen.
