ka8yiu: are you tied to the light/lantern post in that picture? I've read about Koomer Ridge and was near there once last summer. As I've said, I'm open to anywhere and a place where one of us has experienced it always better.
I have some personal health issues that are going to make it diffecult for me to commit to a specific date but I like the idea of a spring hang gathering. I would suggest that we aim for April/May as the earliest I would want to try because of the cool temps overnight. This time frame would allow anyone, like me, to get my gear together and prepare for this gathering, as well as share experiences while setting up at the actual location.
