    Hello,

    I'm new to hammocking but am a seasoned camper, are there places to hang at this location?

    I might be able to make the Sat & Sun on either set of dates.

    Can you give more details on the location?

    -Stephen

    Cphobes, This is a private property that my Boyscout troop has permission to use. We have permission to use it for Hanging on one of these two weekends. I am personally leaning toward the Feb. weekend but can still do march if that is the better of the weekends for everyone. This Album will give you an idea of what there is to hang. On a regular camp out there with the boys we will have almost a dozen hangers there.

    Put me down for a maybe in March. The place looks nice.

    After being asked to narrow down the time to one choice I have decided to go with just the Feb 24-26th weekend. This one works best for my family and I.
    For those that might not be able to come this weekend but to the one in march I apologize. It just means we will have to schedule another reason for going into the piney woods. Oh darn.

    Put me down as a possible. I have a lot going on at the moment, medically, and if I am able, I would love to go!

    Another Possible

    Hey all,

    I'm from South-Eastern Mass, so this drive is doable for me on a weekend trip. I would *REALLY* love to attend this but it'll be a matter of timing and availability with my family as well (I'm sure this is a common theme). I do a lot of scout camping too; I'm actually going to Camp Norse this weekend ! The rest of the scouts are cabin camping but I'm going to test the limits of my gear in my hammock, which will be a good test because it's could get as low as 10* early Sunday !!!

    Hey guys so after a weekend camping in the area we are looking at for February. I thought that I would post another link with some more pictures in regards to the spot. I was also thinking about doing group meals where Darryl (Scout Master) and I can do some of the cooking and planning for dinners.
    Also at this time it looks like I can get there on Friday no earlier than 3:00 pm. So from that time on till some time Sunday is game. What are your thoughts?
