    NC>Uwharrie>Yates Place> Fall Back Hang> Nov 4-6 2016

    This is just a laid back gathering of hammock minded folks. Plenty of space and no reservations needed. This is a great hang for anyone that wants to attend. New people can test out gear and more experienced ones can help or just relax in the trees. There are plenty of trails, we will have a fire and you can usually count on people making some extra food for the group.

    This is where is is. Yates is located inside the Uwharrie National Forest about 15 minutes east of Albemarle and 10 west of Troy. Here is more info on Uwharrie.

    There is no running water or flushing bathrooms. There is a vault toilet, garbage picked up, fire pits, parking and plenty of trees. If the group decides to add group meals or anything else we will add it to the ss, but for now its just going to be a sign up sheet.

    Here is the sheet.

    Please let me know if I am missing anything or you would like to add something. Thanks for all.

    Don't know if I will be able to make it at this point but I hope so.

    To those who have never been to Yates, there are enough trees for a thousand hangers ( no exaggeration ), just not enough parking for that many. No water so bring your own and one vault toilet. The closest town is Troy and it has a Food Lion about a 20 minute drive from Yates. If you are traveling thru Carthage, be sure to stop by the Pik n Pig for some excellent BBQ.

    If you like to hike then the Dutchman Creek Trail and Uwharrie Trail offer some excellent hiking and camping ( PappyAmmos and I did an overnight hike before the last Spring Hang at Yates )
