I hope to convert a few tent folks while we are at it.
Just to follow up on our Florida Caverns Trip, everything worked out great. When talking with the park staff at check in, they had a memo in hand stating that hammock camping in the youth camp areas was permitted as long as tree straps etc. were used. There was also a note to all staff to not bother anyone they saw with a hammock setup. (i thought that was interesting). Overall, I think it looks good as a panhandle destination. They are still wrapping their heads around the practice, but as more people give them feedback on how to properly setup, it will help them formulate rules down the road. I offered to show them my setup, but they were swamped that weekend, so they let us do our thing.
