    YHC Campus Campout

    My oldest daughter wrote a guest post for my blog about the first ever Campus Campout at Young Harris College. With 10 hammockers and a lone tenter, I though the post might just qualify as a trip report (If not, Mods, do your thing...).

    Cool idea and report.
    Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the strength to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.

    If I can report from the back yard, your daughter can certainly report from the campus hang. It sounds like it was a pretty good night. Tell her nice job on the reporting.

    Looks like a fun time! Have you ever hiked the Wagon train trail? Brasstown Bald to the back of YHC? Nice trail with several bear sighting along the way. If you get a chance come join us for the Chattooga River hang this weekend. We've got 3 NGTO members coming....Grizzly Hackle, River Pirate and myself (Gonefishn on NGTO) come out and join us.

    I have and it about killed me...OK, we hiked the Arkaqua Trail UP to Brasstown first then back down to YHC on the Wagon Trail. It was Arkaqua that did the damage.

    that looked great! I work in Higher Ed and our outdoor rec guy just hosted a hammock building workshop. had about 30 students show, "molding young minds and getting their butts off the ground!"

    The cook off looked especially fun. I may be stealing that idea for our students. Thanks for posting!
