    Hey I'm a take it easy solo hanger that has been reading the forums for a while but just signed up. Never been on a multi person hang of any sort but I am interested. What is the protocol for newbies at these things.

    Welcome aboard!
    We love having new people join us. Just more people we can talk about gear and other things with

    It's pretty relaxed - campfire, tons of trees, maybe some ladder ball, some hiking or MTB options if you like.

    I showed up to my first group hang in SC with a tent and they didn't turn me away

    tallpaul is right. Its a relaxing weekend. We do as little or as much as we like. Its a great place to see the types of rigs people have and learn about what can be done in hammocking. We usually have a Saturday dinner where you can sign up to bring something or make something with what you bring. The rest of the meals you are on your own, unless we get well fed by our linville gorge guys.

    I attended my first group hang about a year ago. I was concerned about being a newbie -- umm yeah that lasted all of about 10 minutes -- 'cause no one cared whether your gear was new old or a tent - they all just enjoyed the outdoors and talking with each other.

    Everyone was so friendly and accepting that I had a great time. I've attended more than a dozen since and always enjoy both the outdoors AND the people. I've made some good friends along the way too.

    Hope you'll join us!

    Oh! umm the protocol for newbies is show up with sufficient gear to be safe comfortable (any type of gear) and sufficient food to not starve.
    Be prepared to :

    • see lots of different hammock and tarps and deployment methods,
    • hike, bike, or just hang around camp,
    • have your head swimming with all the new information,
    • and have new friends by the time you leave.

    I know its the woods but what about Italian? We could make a few big pots of pasta and people can do sauces, meats, breads and whatever.

    Are you suggesting bringing the pasta or making it there?

    If someone can haul a turkey fryer burner out there and a big pot, you could boil noodles. You also have lots of other options then. Corn on the cob and potatoes boiled in crab boil seasoned water is pretty tasty. Or bring the oil and fry some stuff
    With one I used to have we did a cookout at work and I made funnel cake. Mmmm

    But this crowd probably really wants some deep fried pork brains.

    My buddy told me he saw livermush for sale in Cary which is further east than I'd expect. Maybe I can look into that.

    if we did Italian and we did pasta, that's how I would do it. Turkey frier with a big pot. I figured 2 kinds of pasta. We could have a meat sauce. Maybe a alfredo. Bolonigese. We could have someone make a picata or ala vodka. I myself am not italian but can cook some up. Meatballs sausage chicken parm and of course tiramisu.

    I was thinking of doing dump cake again - maybe a double recipe this time! This will be my 2nd event - can't really call my attendance at the Smoked Butt Hang a hang, since we weren't able to stay the night. This time I'm planning on hanging and doing some hiking/hunting (potentially bow for deer and air rifle for squirrel).

    I won't have any idea if I can make it till just a few weeks out, but I'm thinkin something like this.

    Drive to Yates place Saturday morning and impose upon someone to shuttle me and possibly a friend or two down to the trail head on 24/27 and hike the Dutchman's Creek trail then turn right (north east) on the Uwharrie so I skip all the big hills. This should take me 4-5 hours to get back to Yates place and make for a nice day hike.

    That won't get me back to Yates early enough to do any cooking that takes a while, but I could make it up by doing a big dutch oven cobbler for dessert. Maybe even with rhubarb.
