    NC/SC Borderlands... new hang interest??


    We took a zig-zag, jig-jag road trip down through the NC/SC border mountains yesterday. Neither of us had been in that part of the area yet, and it is pretty impressive.
    No towering peaks etc, but wildly twisty roads to drive and fully surrounded by mountains all the time. Stumbled on both Table Rock [below] and Sassafras Mountain [where SC has just finished a very nice/easy-access viewing platform up on SC's highest point.
    I talked with the rangers at TR, and there is a very nice sounding set of hike-in/group camp sites that might be really schweet for a hammocking meet-up....

    ....this is the area right along the NC/SC border, west and south of I-26, and north of Greenville, SC. That means fairly quick and easy access from any direction. The Foothills Trail that Hicks and Shug did a couple of years ago goes right thru the area, so they will know what I'm talking about. Day hike possibilities everywhere.

    I am REALLY interested in starting a hang out here in the borderlands for later this summer/season, and this is not the only possibility!
    PM me or chime in here on this thread if you have any interest in putting something together....

    Since it looks like there IS some interest, I'll bait the hook some more...

    • Trout fishing season is open 7:00am on April 6th, to July 31st, 2019 [in NC]. Seven trout per day, no size limit may be harvested. No bait restrictions.
    • The Great Smokies Park is less than 2 hours up the road
    • The Blue Ridge Parkway is less than a hour, so there are loop drives that can easily be done in a day.
    • "Tail of the Dragon" is only 60 miles to the west [for the adventurous mo'cyclistz among us].

    Oh... WOW! Sounds good.
    I haven't engaged with Palmetto yet, but I met JuneBug in Maine at one of our hangs a couple of years ago.
    Do ya'll promote it here on HammockForums? If so, I'll keep my eyes out for a thread.
