    The hubby and I are in for Oct 5-7 and Parson's Mountain sounds good. We look forward to getting together with all you crazy SC folks again.

    I can bring some firewood again.

This is much closer for me, but I don't know if it is approximately the same distance for others. http://www.fs.usda.gov/wps/portal/fsinternet/!ut/p/c4/04_SB8K8xLLM9MSSzPy8xBz9CP0os3gDfxMDT8MwRydLA1cj72 BTJw8jAwjQL8h2VAQAzHJMsQ!!/?ss=110812&ttype=recarea&recid=47187&actid=79&navt ype=BROWSEBYSUBJECT&position=BROWSEBYSUBJECT&navid =110000000000000&pnavid=null&cid=null&pname=Long+C ane+Ranger+District+-+Parson's+Mountain+Recreation+Area

    IT_Mike, how far is this from you? Everyone else is either closer or about the same to PM.

    150mls, or about 2.5 hours. Keep in mind, at Parson's it looks like everyone gets their own camp site (perhaps doubling up). No group camp site.

    This is your event, I'm just trying to help. Let me know what you want and I'll do what I can.

    I don't think Parson's Mt is any further than Woods Ferry for you, Ahhgladius. I'll Google it.

    Parson's Mountain is very under used. I doubt there will be anyone else there. There is no camp host right now, either, as the last one died a few months ago. I think we could easily fit on a couple of sites...don't think anyone will care if we spread out a little. I can go out there and take pics in the morning and post them if y'all want. It's only 18 miles from me.

    Parson's Mt is 28 miles further than Woods Ferry for you. Both are 2+ hours trips. You might just have to take a break.

    I'm going to go out in the morning and take pics, count trees, etc. Which reminds me...I need to charge my camera battery after this past weekend!

    This is my 50th forum post, so I thought I'd share a funny story. Yesterday, when I called Lake Greenwood S.P., I asked the lady if it was OK for us to hang hammocks. I had already stated we are a hammock camping group. She asked, "So that will be your primary shelter??" I answered, "Yes, Ma'am, we are hammock campers. Is that OK?" She said with a little surprise in her voice, "Well, I don't see why not!!" It sounded as if she was thinking...well, if that is what floats your boat, but I think y'all are crazy. Haha!
