    NEHHA OFFICIAL FALL HANG MA > Mohawk St Forest > Sept 29-Oct 1st.

    Just putting this out there. Stay tuned for more info as it comes available.

    The location may change to the Chesterfield Scout reservation if my reservations there come through. Either way we have the dates set.

    This is also going to be skills learning heavy weekend. I am working on a schedule and the specific skills and levels to be taught at this Hang. This will be determined by the teachers I can put together, based upon the feed back of the poll I posted up earlier this year.

    As soon as I get everything together I will post the itinerary up so everyone can see what will be happening and any specific gear needed for those skills. If you have any questions or you are interested in helping the course, please PM me and we can talk further.

    Way to go Tim! Don't let any grass grow under those wheels. Thanks for the heads up so we can all reserve the time off.

    My wife Susan AKA Capricorn, Robyn AKA The Foxy Lady and I might all actually be able to make it.

    We will be testing the "camping/hammocking waters" this spring and summer. If our little lady is good with the outdoors then I think we will be able to make it.

    NEHHA started at Mohawk State Forest! We elected the first on President there (after a round of Habanero spiced Vodka as I recall). Acres and acres of perfectly spaced trees!

    This sounds fun and interesting! I'm still pretty new to this site and I am rather clueless. If anyone is willing to help a girl out and give a brief description of what this is I would greatly appreciate it.

    Hmmmmm. What this is.....????? To be short. This is a great time where crazy like minded hammock camping people gather to have fun, enjoy good conversations, excellent food and some fun good hearted shenanigans.

    It is family oriented event with kids roaming around having a great time outside with good hearted folks.

    Specifically this particular event will have some training on different outside skills that will help us enjoy our time outside more. If you have any other questions please feel free to ask. I or someone else will answer them for you.

    This sounds like something I might just have to go to! Of course, if my schedule agrees with me. I'm looking forward to here more info as the date approaches.

    Group hangs like this are also a great way to see different set up ideas (an ever evolving process for me), different types of hammocks, insulation, tarps, ways to cook doughnuts in the wild (oh yeah Tim, Time To Make The Doughnuts).

    I was at my first official NEHHA event this past weekend, had a great time and made some new friends.

    Hope you can make this, and hope I can too...

    I'd add to the descriptions from others: I went to my first hang last summer and never once felt uncomfortable as a woman there alone. This is a great group that is very welcoming.

    Also, I read your intro and wanted to say that I initially spent many nights using my sleeping bag as insulation. I zipped it around the hammock like a burrito and cinched the head end. It was not as comfortable as using an underquilt because you can't lie on a good diagonal, but I definitely slept warmer than I would have if I'd had it inside the hammock. I have a hybrid bag, so the foot end is not as narrow as a mummy but also not rectangular. I don't know how well a mummy bag would work.

    Hope to see you soon!
    Laura
