    Hang #5 / NorCal / Boggs Mt. / Oct 3-5 2014

    Boggs Boggs Boggs!



    Boggs Mountain State Demonstration Forest in beautiful Lake County California is the site of our FIFTH NorCal hammock hang, the first weekend of October, 2014.

    This is the announcement and thread for the October hang.
    Any new information or answers to questions will be added as a new post in this thread. Sorry about that.

    October 3-5, Friday afternoon through Sunday afternoon.
    Ridge Campsite (the group camp)


    Boggs is a beautiful site for a hang, drive up and dump your stuff and be bewildered by the plethora of pines from which to hang.

    I'm asking for $5 per car per night to help pay for the group-site fee.

    Here's a link to the Cal Fire site for Boggs

    The map of the forest is in the right hand sidebar, "base map" PDF format.
    AND a direct link to the PDF map

    Site Characteristics
    There is no water available at the campsite. Bring what you'll need for the weekend.
    No bear lockers or garbage cans. We've successfully used our cars at night for this. I'll bring a small garbage can and a couple spare bags for the group.
    There is a fire ring - bring firewood, and a charcoal grill is also available. Also two concrete picnic tables near but not next to the fire ring.
    Forecast? www.weatherunderground.com and search for "cobb, ca" is probably the best forecast for the Boggs Mountain area. We are on a ridge, so it may be windy.
    There are ticks. Sometimes yellowjackets.
    Dogs are OK.

    Things to Do and Bring
    We will have a potluck dinner on Saturday - bring whatever you'd like to share if you feel like sharing.
    There is plenty of excellent hiking and for the stay-at-camps, I'd suggest a pack of cards or some other games.
    Don't forget a chair for campfire lounging. A small pad for sitting on the cold cold concrete benches is also nice.
    I've used my longer tree straps at this site, depends on which pines you pick.

    Directions
    When coming from the south on 175, look for a big blue sign that says Cal Fire and Boggs Mountain. the road is called "Forestry Rd."
    There is a similar sign coming from the north on 175

    You are strongly advised to print the map of the site or buy an even better map (available at the entrance to Boggs at the kiosk for a paltry dollar)
    or you risk taking 2 hours to find the camp. I am not kidding, it has happened. The roads at Boggs are marked: roads have an orange stick sign and trails have a brown stick sign. But they are easy to miss.

    That's it!
    See you there!

    Liz,

    Do you need a confirmation from those coming?

    I can still do anything I could when I was 21. It just takes longer and hurts more now.

    Well, it would be nice - esp if the we-feed-you-Sunday-breakfast plans happen. Oops. Did I say that out loud?
