Have any of you AT hammock hangers had any problems finding places to setup your hammocks???? I'm starting my section hike the 2nd week in July at Cades Cove then over to Spence Field, north on the AT for 6 days. I can't imagine that finding two trees would be a problem but there are five hammock hangers that have never hiked the AT, so I thought I should ask.
Sounds like you're hiking in the Smokies. Note that you are required to sleep in the shelters in the Smokies, with the exception that AT thru-hikers are allowed to camp if and only if the shelter is filled to capacity.
