    Personal. He is gearing up for Philmont this summer, so he is just getting his legs stretched and working on lessening his load. It will be our first father-son hike without the rest of the scout troop.

    Cool, I am doing that next weekend. My son hasn't had a chance to go to Philmont yet and may make Eagle before he does.

    My son did Philmont but never made Eagle (sigh). One stinking project away.

    Well, I get to poach all his gear now that he's off to college.

    Just most right? Haha, where do you hang locally? I'm in Helena quite often. The girlfriends family lives there.

    By the way, I have tons of hobbies and frequent many online forums. Just wanted to say this has to be the most friendly, hospitable forum out there.

    Hey, I'm from Grove Hill, AL. I work for PowerSouth Energy which is based in Andalusia. I guess you are familiar with Conecuh right?

    I'm going up to the Sipsey with some friends the first week in November. My son in law and I will be hanging. The remainder are ground dwellers.

    Have never hammocked at Oak Mountain (nearby State Park), and I'm not certain that they allow it. (I actually think they don't). Sometimes I stealth camp downstream from town near Buck Creek. I think it's USS property. Never been bothered there. I grew up in the area and spent quite a bit of time stomping around in those woods.

    Sometimes I just hang in the back yard. I live in the old part of town, and found that wearing ear plugs helps to sleep through the night when there's rail traffic (all night long).

    Is Conecuh hammock friendly? I have hiked the trail and camped along it but never at a site.
    Little River state park is hammock friendly. Just north of Atmore (and the prisons).

    Conecuh is definetely hammock friendly. No one ever around to tell you NO anyway. I go there very often in the winter months. It is also mountain bike friendly on all trails. It is also Hunter friendly!! so watch out. Going into the park, there's a trailhead on the left on the northern loop sections. This is the best part of the whole Conecuh trail if you walk east on the trail. Cross the road and you're going west, not as cool but still a good walk.

    I always hang whereever on the trails. I actually saw a small black bear on my last trip there.
    Right in the middle of the park on Blue Pond is a church camp area. So you may run into some groups of people from there. I think it's a Methodist camp, I went to it when I was young. Pretty neat place, very nice on Blue Pond with swimming.

    Black bear in Conecuh? Now that's cool. Blue pond is a great swimhole. Be warned gators are common.
