    Cape Canaveral Seashore Trip

    Hi,
    I'm planning a paddle and hang to the Cape Canaveral Seashore in the upcoming weeks. I remember reading a while back about some other hangers in FL who have done this trip before. I'm looking for any pearls of wisdom y'all may have about the best sights for hanging, where the best places to put in are, and any pitfalls or things to watchout for.
    Thanks,
    E

    We did this trip last year. It was a good trip.

    Here is the trip report: http://www.hammockforums.net/forum/s...ad.php?t=30590

    We are considering it again this year, but planning and execution takes a bit more effort than other hangs so it might not be on this year.

    The next few weeks should be good. After say, late March or early April it's too late. Try it and you'll find out why they named it Mosquito Lagoon.
    Plan on doubling the amount of fresh water you usually use. Be sure to hose off all your gear really well when you get home. Salt air is great stuff but it comes at a price.
