In a few weeks, a freind and I will be riding our bikes along the C&O Canal from Cumberland, Maryland to Washington, DC. I have ridden most of the canal over the years, but never more than I could ride round trip in one day, and I never really looked at the campsites with the idea of hanging a hammock. I know to stay away from the campsites that are close to easy access points, and I have those crossed off of the list for the most part. Does anybody know of any specific campsites that just won't work well for hanging a hammock? ...or any sites that they would highly recommend?
We don't really have a set in stone itenerary for how far we will be travelling each day, but we figure that we can have a nice leisurely ride doing either 40 or 60 miles per day. If I was riding solo, I would probably just try to do this in two days not stopping to see the historical landmarks and stuff because I have visited it all before, but my riding buddy is not from the U.S., so he will be wanting to stop and see all of it and take pictures. I plan on doing this unsupported, but will have a third friend that will be following us in his truck since he can't really ride a bike much anymore, he will carry some extra supplies and be our ride home at the end or if we get completely rained out, and he might also meet up with us occasionally for lunch or whatever.
Sorry if I am rambling.
