    OH>May planning

    If anyone's heading out this month and is looking for company, post away!

    I've got a thing on the weekend of the 17th, but otherwise more or less open. I'm specifically looking for a mid-week hang somewhere close to central OH (<150 mi). If anyone's interested, speak up and we'll try to work it out!

    Well, Redwing and I got out to Mohican last weekend. Actually hit site 8 which I've always passed over. Not bad at all...except for a LOUD murder of crows at 5am.

    How many hammocks do you think could be hung at site 8? I remember the last time I walked through there was so much undergrowth that I wasn't really sure.

    Well, Possibly as many as 8-10 folks? It looks like they've been clearing the site. Redwing and I were in the main site and maybe one or two more could hang there, but there is a lower area toward the cliffs that is leveled out and larger. Maybe Redwing will give his thoughts. I had heard it was small and frequented by local partiers, but I think it's been enlarged...but we did find a spot with loads of surface TP waste next to a tree in the lower area. Of course, I found site 9 in worse condition once, also. I'd say give it a look next time your there.

    Thanks for the reply. I've always used #10 as my go-to.......mostly because it gives me a longer walk in that beautiful woods. I'm gonna try to get out there again soon. I've had problems twice where people were in sites that they had not signed up for......both times I just let them keep the site as they were with children and packing up would be a huge ordeal. It's pretty frustrating, but I hate being the bad guy in those situations. I did call the ranger to alert them that people were occupying non registered sites......but they didn't seem to care much.

    Yeah, the rangers really don't seem to care what happens there. That's why I try to hit Mohican as early in the day as I can. But last year I was noticing people signing in mid-week for the weekend, which isn't allowed.

    Yeah, the early sign in thing is pretty lame, too. I'd be fine if they made the sites pay only, I'd drop $20 in a box for one of them.
