    XTrekker, where are you going to do a beach hang? I have family down that way - I'd like to drop the kids off and take the wife to hang out.

    Also, I live in Warrenton which is a pretty decent basecamp for some SNP/AT hiking. I want to do some 2-3 day trips on the AT this year so maybe we can put our heads together on that.

    I think we need to find a way to put together a shared google calendar or maybe a sticky on this thread where someone updates weekends/trips for the mid atlantic area.

    Can we do Sods the weekend that xTrekker mentioned? I couldn't easily get up there in time on the 7th, but I can be there early on the 8th.

    Going to do the (Nags Head, NC) beach hang on May 18-19th with my wife, kids, and Destikahr. Anybody else is welcome. I havent settled on which campground, of the 8+ available in that area, to use. Non of them really allow reservations so ya just kinda have to show up and hope for the best..lol There is one that does allow reservations and I will give them a call tomorrow. But it adds almost another hour to the drive.
    You will most likely need a TurtleDog Stand to do this hang but Luckily I have access to a bamboo grove and can make you one for pretty cheap.

    WV(Dave) and few others recommended it to me.
    Take a close look at that Hiking Upwards loop. It includes the entire Dobbins Grade Trail. The upper part isn't too bad, but ....

    Alternatives using Raven Ridge offer some improvement.

    Anyone come up with some concrete dates and places yet? My ability to go or not will most likely be a last minute (or second) thing due too work, but may be easier to plan with enough lead time???

    looks like nothing as of yet, but as i mentioned before--my brother and i will be in dolly sods proper memorial day weekend, or in roaring plains if the crowds are an issue.

    seems that a few other people here want to check out the sods as well, so i think its worth discussing further...


    I also suggest a Ramsey's Draft trip, as well as St. Mary's Wilderness, Big Schloss area, and somewhere off the beaten path in SNP like Jeremy's run or big run portal loop
