I'm finally going to have all of my hammock gear bought soon and I'm trying to get a small trip going for my first hang since my husband can't get off work to go with me and I don't want to go alone. I'm planning on a 3.5 day hike on the AT, Springer Mountain to Neels Gap The weekend of April 14-15th. The dates depend on if more people can go Friday-Monday or Thursday-Sunday. Fri-Mon is easier for me transportation-wise but I'm flexible. Also there are so many access points that whoever wants can meet up at any time!
This will also be my first section of the AT as well as my first hang so I'm taking it easy with 10 miles or less per day. I've also planned to end at Mountain Crossings at Neels Gap for a few reasons, one being I've been there and am familiar with the driving in the area and how to get home, two because if we get done early enough, dinner in Helen always rocks, and three because deep down somewhere I'm a girl and love shopping!
I'm looking forward to having a few new friends come and share my first hang with me!
