    it's a large group site next to the french broad river that the whole group spreads out on.
    ed brings a large pole shelter that has room for a picnic table or two & a bunch of chairs.
    we were pushing it's limits last fall trying to get everyone (most w/ chairs) under it during a rain shower, but it wouldn't be hard to extend it w/ a large tarp.
    it's nice to have a large social area to hang out under & talk if it rains.
    i'll plan to bring a hammock stand (two if needed).

    I also have a really big nylon tarp that set up with aluminum poles. I think it's like 13' x 13' cat cut tarp . I can bring it. We can set up a tarp city.

    Hammock Engineer is hiking in from Springer too. Might see if you can hook up with him as the date nears.

    Hey 2 fingers....I'll be right behind you...starting on March 12. I've looked at a lot of people's journals from year's past and it seems many of them are getting to Hot Springs at right around the 1 month mark, so you and I might have it timed perfectly. If not, I'm sure finding a ride won't be too big of a deal. Good luck!!! Hope I run into ya out there or see you at the hang out!
