    Sounds like so much fun! Last time I was in that area, I did Bears Den to Harpers Ferry... shoulda stopped at the Blackburn. Wish I could get out, but gotta play nurse for my hubby till the doctor says we can travel.

    Sounds like a fun time, HappyCamper. Unfortunately, work and school schedules won't accommodate the time to make the hike. At this point, it looks like Wiggle and I may arrive Thursday evening but my wife and son may not get down until Saturday mid-day. Hike a good hike.

    Are you taking bug juice? I notice Bug-Bait isn't included so who are the bugs gonna eat? Looking forward to seeing you at MAHHA!

    Same here. Bug-Bait puts work before hiking. Strange man.

I am planing to hike to Crampton Gap and leave my car somewhere north to retreive on sunday. Look forward to meeting everyone. Also if any one is considering a similar hike, carpooling is always considered.

    That sounds like a great hike. Bears Den is awesome and David Lesser has some decent hang options. Enjoy!

    I'm relocating to Maine next week (from El Paso, TX) and am planning on going to MAHHA (My first hang). The pre-hike sounds like fun, too. I'd probably need rough directions to meet up w/you all at the beginning. Drop me a PM to get a logistics-planning discussion started.

    Yep, from here on out life is just one BIG adventure...
