    Welcome to the forum, from the North Hills area. I would also be interested in local hangs, and very interested about the hike-in spot off Possum Track.

    I think I might be ok, depends on temps. I guess I could always keep extra gear in the truck lol

    That sounds amazing, I could do that ANYTIME. I live right at Carpenter Pond behind Brier Creek

    I have a 12' Jackson and fish Jordan year round. As I said I've been trying to get a Kayak fish and hang thing together since last year. I can't backpack due to a bad back that's no longer load bearing, but I can still paddle. Try to make the Frosty Butt or Yates hang and we can discuss and make plans for spring.

    Welcome from Cary! I'm with SteelPlayer in that we def need to get a Fish n' Hang together! Highly recommend coming to both the Frosty Butt Hang at MMSP in a couple weeks, as well as the Yates Place Hang. You'll meet some awesome people, see some awesome gear setups, and eat some awesome food! I'd also definitely be interested in a triangle hang or get together sometime. I work about 30 seconds away from the Reedy Creek Entrance to Umstead SP, so let me know if y'all plan anything!

    Let me know when you guys want to do some kayak fishing, adding in the hammocks is an even better idea. I am over in Wake Forest and have not got my Tarpon 120 out in a while.

    The campsite on section 4 of the Falls Lake trail between Possum Track Road and Bayleaf can accommodate a few hammocks, but they don't allow campfires.
    Straight out of Clayton.

    Most physical hike: Grandfather Mountain, NC. Aug 13.

    I don't need to make my pack lighter. I need to make my (_*_) lighter.

    I plan on bringing my Kayak to the April Medoc state park hang, there is a 1.5 hour kayak trip you can do on the river.
