Live south of Baltimore. My wife and myself both hang. Went to the MAHHA last year and loved it!
eastern shore of maryland here!
I live in Germantown, MD and get out on the AT a bunch of times each year.
MAHAA and Mt. Rogers are two great hangs that are not terribly far away.
Additionally, I may be going to the NJ hang at the end of the month. If you want to carpool togethor just let me know.
Another Eastern Shore!
+1 on Rocky Run shelter: it's my favorite.
If you want someone to camp with outside of the trips here, check out Meetup.com . There are lots of nearby camping/ hiking/ backpacking groups. I am a member and hike leader of DC Backpackers Meetup and they have lots of trips to WV, VA, MD, PA.
I'm new to the forums and hammock camping too, however, I live in MD (Taneytown) as well. I have yet to camp in a hammock but, i'm getting ready to DIY my first one in the coming weeks while preparing for some Spring hiking/hanging on the AT...
Kensington, MD here.
+100 on Rocky Run - simply awesome. My other favorite site is Pogo Campground on the other side of the I-70 footbridge.
Sorry. What's that?

Its a free membership all you have to do is show up . MAHA happens twice a year. Once in the Spring at Pine Grove Forest St. Park and one in the Fall. In previous years the Fall MAHA was at Gathland St. Park but we have out grown the site and are currently looking for a new one. You can find the MAHA planning threads in the Trip Planning section of the forum. Hope this helps.
Sometimes I like to hike and think, And sometimes I just like to hike.
Hiking is'ent about waiting for the storm to pass its about learning to hike in the rain.
