On the Calendar. Let's see if I can swing two long weekends in one month
There's no place like 127.0.0.1
This is the same weekend as the spring MAHHA. Being from the south, myself and a couple other northeasterners were going to try and make it to that. It's in PA about 5 1/2 hours from here. Too bad because the Maine hang is closer...
We recently acquired several t*nt-dwelling musician friends who are hoping to make it to the Maine Hang, so it may have lost some purity as a hammock event - but they should make up for it in mirth and hammock evangelism opportunities.
Excited here too! Spoke to the campground owners a couple weeks ago, been twisting the arms of a few musician friends, and think I got the whole family on board. I'll be heading up the weekend prior to check things out and make final prep.
If you can post a spreadsheet, ATTroll, that would be awesome. If not I hope to get to it in the next few days. Been under the weather or playing catch-up at work much of the time lately.
I can't tell you how great it is to be able to share my favorite campground (where I hung my first hammock and have camped for over 23 years) with my hammock forum friends.
Bring along instruments, but fear not - the campground is large enough to find trees away from the music if quiet is your thing.
We have also welcomed tent dwellers, so there should be plenty of opportunities for spreading the joy of hammock camping to those benighted ground-sleeping friends.
I plan to make Brunswick, have a couple of things to deal with first. May need another surgery around then, and need to buy a car. Hopefully, the surgery will be taken care of by then.
