    Another set of free hands and time (with sufficient notice). Decent carpentar. Good engineer (mechanical) and a Great "git-r-doner" Holler if you want some help.

    Tree Protection

    Until recently hammocks were prohibited in FL state parks. Thanks to a pilot program this restriction is falling in certain parks. I understand the state wanting to be careful since this is somewhere that you might see hundreds of nights of hanging per year.

    Since you'll likely end up with some "sweet spots" along the creek that have just the right spacing or the nicest views. You might want to look into how best to protect the trees in those areas.

    I like the idea of hammocks only (no RV generators, fewer screaming kids and barking dogs). For a group hang you might even want to sink a couple of big poles to allow for two trees to allow 3 hangers.

    +1 I did a bit of general contracting work in my younger days. With enough notice I could give a weeks worth of labor.

    Lunchbox and I cleaned the main fire spot sunday and monday. we found a bunch of ground hornets that weren't happy we where there and neither was I when they got me five times. A little more to go and this area will be ready for hanging then its down the creek. Heres some pics of the progress, Thanks for the offers to help, we will plan a group hang soon.

    Update

    Main fire spot finishied, will hang 6 or 7 and seat 20 or so, next weekend going across the creek and there will be room for 4 or 5 more. Lunchbox and I have got the locus poles cut for the cook/gathering shed. . Please comment with your ideas we are trying to make this a perfect place to hang and can really use everyones help. At this point we could have a group hang, if anyone has any ideas please comment. Friday We recieved our package for the Stinging Fork Trail adoption, looking forward to that trip so we can get that trail back in shape. Its 3.2 miles and we are going to adopt part of the Piney River Trail as well, its 10 miles and both are close to our campground or should I say campair. Thanks for your comments and the most generous help from Xtrekker and SPaCmn.
