    ME>The Maine Hang - Brunswick, ME April 25th-27th, 2014

    The Maine Hang
    Thomas Point Beach, Brunswick, Maine
    April 25-27th, 2014

    Heading up to my favorite campground during the last weekend of April for some preseason camping, hammock hanging, music jamming, food, friends, fires and fun.

    We attempted this event last year and had a lot of fun for a small group - but I think we'll give everyone more than ten days notice and see if that helps attendance.

    The abundance of pine trees could allow for a ridiculous amount of hammocks, and the preseason camping makes it easy to span campsites if the tree placement is preferable. I'm inviting along some of my bluegrass pickin' friends, but the campground is large enough to find a 'banjo free' zone if needed.

    Last year, camping was $7/person/night - should still be under $10 unless we pool in on a community meal or get a large enough turnout to make port-a-johns advisable.

    I welcome others to join in and add whatever fun you bring to the mix. Workshops, meals, paddling, cycling, or shopping trips... what have you. I have no agenda at this time beyond a good family-friendly time from arrival to the (now) traditional 'throwing of the pancakes' before leaving.

    So... who wants to hang?

    Still on the mainland, but headed out towards Harpswell and the islands. Specifically, it's in the Cooks Corner area.

    I would like to commit to this but it is just to far out right now. I have been contemplating hiking the AT again.
