    Group hang in Washington State or even just 2 trees

    Looking for a place to hang for a few days.

    In March, the Washington State Convention Center in Seattle is hosting the 46th Annual Conference of the National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts NCECA. I would like to Fly out a few days before the conference and maybe do some hanging or hiking with fellow hammock enthusiasts.

    The NCECA event is the 28th-31st of March. The week of the 19th is my last spring break before finally graduating in May and I would love to spend it out camping. Is there anyone up for a group hang during the week of the 19th or weekend of the 24th?

    I think I may have found a place to set up camp but am really surprised at the lack of posts on here. I am buying tickets on Wednesday to fly out March 24-31st. I'll be able to get a sneak peek at Mt. Rainier which i'll be climbing in September. I anyone has some suggestions for places to visit let me know.

    I think the reason you not getting any responses is because everything will still be snowed in, and there are not a lot of winter hangers per se'. That and there may be a scheduling conflict for most...your a starving student who gets to take week days off, were working stiffs who have to work during the week days Not sure about the weekend option though.

    If I lived over there I would be down for it...but I am over on the other side of the state, so no dice for me.

    Good luck.

    Cheers

    You may have better luck doing a kayak trip if the sound calm enough.

    Hey mate, I really don't have any idea about my schedule in that time frame yet. As we get closer I may be about to hang a night or 2 over the weekend with you. Often that time of the year is awfully wet, not that I mind, but be prepared for it.

    I'm sure others will chime in as we get closer to the dates.
    I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived. -HDT

    I wouldn't say that i'm a starving student, I keep a steady supply of oatmeal and roman in the studio I hear that March isn't necessarily the best time of year to visit with the seasonal changes but it is what it is. I gotta take trips when I can make trips. What are the conditions out there anyways?
