    Farthest you've gone for a group hang?

    Don't know why I was thinking about this, but I was wondering what's the furthest everyone has traveled to attend a group hang?

    We have a guy that comes to our Arizona hang from Arkansas. Don't know how many miles it is, but it's a helluva long way. We also have folks come from neighboring states, New Mexico and Nevada.

    I went to the other end of NC. Took more than a half a day.
    I collect vintage camp stoves.
    I roast coffee at home.

    I was going to answer 2 miles but then I realized you were not talking about how far have you hiked in to a group hang.

    Three of us and my dog hiked into Spring MAHHA one year. Harpers ferry to Pine grove furnace on the AT. I can't recall but we were out a week or more prior.
    I like refried beans. That's why I wanna try fried beans, because maybe they're just as good and we're just wasting time. You don't have to fry them again after all.

    I'd go further if I could get more time off for a longer trip but for a two nighter I don't go much past a 5 hour drive.

    About an hour or so. 100 miles round trip. I went up to N.Y. state for a group meetup once, but they were so unorganized that out of 16 people committed to go everyone except me and one other person dropped out. The group organizer even dropped out on Friday. Have no idea if it ever happened, I went to Harriman State Park instead.
