I wanted to get this started now so we can start to gather all the VA hammockers together as well as other people out of state that dont mind traveling. I have started a Facebook page that we can all share for any of our VA Hangs we plan. If we can get all the interested VA residents to "Like" the fan page then they will get any updates on trips being planed. Sometimes VA trips that get posted here get buried rather quickly and other Virginians might miss out on an opportunity for a group hang.
If you are interested in this idea simply message the Facebook page and I will give you moderator rights so you can plan and edit events on the page. Just send me a message with your HF username in it and ask for moderator rights.
If we can get alot of the VA members to join the page then any trip planning can be done much simpler through the Event planner on the Facebook page. Plus any updates will automatically notify each attendee through their facebook account.
I understand that this site does offer tools for trip planning but are often overlooked by members so events can be missed because of this. I am hoping that this will allow for us Virginians to setup Group Hangs much easier in the future. If your interested please click the link below.

Also this Spring I typically do a Hike on the AT (south of Waynesboro area). Dates are still up for discussion as well as exact location for the hike.
