Yeppers, the time has come to once again descend upon the quaint little town of Hot Springs N.C.
The very first group hang that HB and I went to was the semi-annual SEHHA hang, that Ed Speers used to host, back in 2009. HB & I still talk about the fun we had there and all the great people we met. So, we thought why not bring it back- again!
That's right folks, HB and I have decided to host yet another Hot Springs hang. We've had several people, over the last couple of hangs ask if we were going to. The official dates are from Friday October 3rd- Sunday the 5th. The usual site has been secured,(#413), This will be the site for our group activities; but it's a good idea to call up the Hot Springs campground and reserve one for yourself 1-828-622-7267.
There'll be Dutch oven cooking going on, ladderball championships, hiking, kayaking/canoeing, and of course....big campfires every night. Cabins are available to rent, just ask the campground people when you call.
This is a family-friendly, newbie friendly, come-one come-all car-camping event right next to some of the best Appalachian Trail hiking in the area, a hiker-friendly town, and some of the best white-water in the southeast.
We've reserved site #413, the same site that Ed used to reserve.
It's a group site that will serve or all our group activities. The other sites that people have gotten in the past that are right next to it are, 407,409, & 411. All are still available, so if you plan on coming I'd recommend reserving as soon as possible.
In keeping with tradition, there'll be a Saturday night hot dog roast, we'll put up a spreadsheet for folks to sign up and bring things.
HB is planning on bringing the Ladderball game, and if someone else wants to bring their cornhole game that would be fun.
So, there it is, let's bring back this family friendly, great time in a beautiful place, car camping at it's best group hang!
We'll post more info soon, just wanted to see who was interested in attending. This has always been one of the group hangs I've looked forward to most.
We'll see ya'll there!
The campground is located on the east side of the town of Hot Springs, NC on Highway US 25/70 directly across from the Hot Springs Resort and Hot Tubs.
