    Family Camp at Meramec State Park

    My family and I car-camped at Meramec State Park over the weekend. We had a great time hiking some of the trails there and exploring a couple of the caves. We slept in a Eureka Copper Canyon (that thing is a palace), but I also took my HH Deep Jungle and Grand Trunk Nano-7 that were both purchased from members here, so I could try them out. This was my first hang for both. Both worked out great and I learned a lot about them. My older daughter loved laying in them (her and I took a nap in them one day) and she has now asked to go on a backpacking trip with me and sleep in hammocks! She's 10, so it should be a great time. I decided to order a WBBB 1.1 for her birthday coming up, so she could have her own. We are now planning a light-weight backpacking trip for sometime in May, just her and I. I think we are hooked on hangin'!

    My sister lives near there and we went hiking there last time I visited. It's a great park. Lots of varied, beautiful scenery. Glad you guys had a good time!

    CB4, where's the photos? Great to get backpacking partners that are easy to get in contact with.
