    What's the best course of action here?
    Bring as many people as would like to join us. We've got two group sites, so there is plenty of room toe spread out.

    My family might come, might not all depends on how they are leaning when the time comes.

    I'm sure that we could rustle up a tarp for you, so don't let that keep you from coming. And that goes for pretty much everyone. I'm sure we will have more than a few extra bits of gear there to get most everyone hanging.

    Whatever people I bring, besides $10/head is there anything else I need to get together to contribute to the vittles?

    Wow, haven't been active for a while.
    You guys can't have a hang right outside my city without me!
    I work nights, so timing is an issue but I have vacation sometime in April, maybe during the hang. If I can make it I'll be there and I'll probably be coming with food of some sort!
    I'll read through the thread and check my vacation schedule

    Yates place hang was great and we all talked about this hang. I am hoping to be able to make it. I might need to lose 20lbs before I go because i feel like a just gained 10 at this hang. I am sure all that "testing" will be tough.

    Hoping to drop by Saturday for some bits-o-pig and see some hammocks.
    Probably have one fellow hanger with me, maybe two. Won't be staying overnight.

    Not seeing a lot of sweets on the list. I may help remedy that with a big batch of homemade cookies or something.

    Unfortuneatly the smoker is in storage and not exactly permitted inside the apartment

    People were talking about the water, what about the trail? If we can get some shuttles going down the trail a ways it might make a good hike back to the food.

    Haven't had the chance to do one of these outings. I'm hoping to see some hammocks first hand like the famous WBBB.

    Bring whatever you feel comfortable with. More food is always better, but worst case scenario I'll run to the store and pick up more food when people start arriving.

    Glad you guys had a good time, wish I could have made it. Perhaps I'll make the Fall Back hang.

    I have the same problem with scheduling as I also work nights. Makes it difficult sometimes to get things sorted to make these sorts of events.

    Would be great if we could get shuttles set up to drop people off at the trail heads, would make for a good couple hours of hiking back, and would certainly give people some hearty appetites.

    Put me down as a maybe +1

    Hi Folks!
    I've been looking to get into hammock camping, but I want to see one in person before I make the plunge. I have a friend who can say the exact same thing. So, if noobs are welcome, I/we might join you.
    I might just come for the barbecue. I'm a native North Carolinian, so a pig pickin is my kind of scene. I would be happy to bring a pound or two of hush puppies.
    I also understand there's a gear raffle going on, proceeds go to charity. If I attend, I would love to chip in with a custom-made paracord bracelet or two.

    Hope to see you all there!

    Wish I had a boat to join you with, I get the feeling that I'm going to be jealous of everyone when you all get back.

    Av8r1 - that's how I did it.. I went to my first hang, taking my tent. It was nice to see the hammocks before purchasing anything.
    And let me tell you, we hammockers aren't shy about showing off our gear.
