    Yates Hang Spring 2018 March 8 9 10 11

    Google Maps Yates Place Campground Troy NC
    And if in Thomasville NC at 85 and 109 go south on 109
    Turn right on Correll Road go to end
    Turn right on Dusty Level Road see Yates Place about a mile on left. Use Troy NC on phone app navigation
    Bring your own water
    There is no water and no electric power
    There is a block building with a vault toilet
    There is no charge and no sign up and no raffle
    All meals are on your own--however I might try my hand at cooking breakfasts.
    I will have firewood delivered Thursday afternoon
    Parent or parents with kids welcome, tents are welcome. Dogs that are socialized are welcome under control of their people

    This years theme is Italian night on Saturday night
    I will not provide your food for this meal and your participation is optional. You are welcome to interact with others to plan Italian night supper as you see fit and you can really do anything you want since You are Yates

    If you want to increase your chances of deep sleep---don't camp near the main fire pit and do not camp near the road or near other campers.
    Late arrivals sometimes set up just off the road as well as campers who are not affiliated with our group

    Please bring a pop up and some propane burners
    Special thanks to Ground Hog and Mooseman--your coffee and lie swapping made for a great fall camp.

    I will not be responding a whole lot to your questions and comments---I encourage you to reach out to old pros and noobs alike to make Yates Hang 2018 March 8 9 10 11 your treasured memory---We are Yates

    I have 2 questions, is this your first time here, and is there room to park a couple tour buses, and third, are knot tying classes pre-paid and will Ground Hog be there, and wow! that tree is dead.
    If you prepare for failure you will probably succeed.

    Will the prodigal son return? I hope your surgeon didn't remove any of your story telling abilities.
    Also I hope Hotlips&Kingsford come and chill rest and relax and be on break--you deserve some real rest in hammocks.

    I hope Tonya and Tony can make it out, but they don't do cold weather hangs. Maybe exception.

    This should be possible for me to make since I will probably be in transition and limbo. I came to a spring hang I think it was in 2015 for one night just prior to the regular visit to the O.R. LOL I did manage another hang at the Linville gorge in early 2016 but anyway I am really over due.

    You know that we will be there. This is where the hammock thing started for us. Let the thread progress some more and we will talk about food and equipment.
