    Pre-planning - Who's in for the first annual Colorado Winter Hang?

    Ok - So I'm moving to Colorado Springs in December, and once I get the family settled (and give some time for more snow in the montains) I'll need to destressify with a winter hang. Who's interested? And where?

    Who: Winter campers only...ground dwellers welcome
    What: Hangout!
    When: February or March, probably...we'll set the schedule once we see who's interested
    Where: Somewhere in central Colorado. I like the Pike National Forest, Saylor Park area, just b/c I'm familiar with it. (Map here...it's more than the 13 minutes away that Google says it is.) Close to Woodland Park for the post-trip group lunch, not too difficult to get to, and a few interesting places to visit nearby (Chimney Rock, some lakes and beaver ponds, etc)
    Why: Because it's winter!

    So let's get a feel for how many people are interested and willing to make the drive. Then we'll nail down a location. After I move and get my new work schedule we'll solidify the date.

    WHO'S IN?!

    winter Hang


    I'm new to hanging and made several hammocks so far. I am in. I currently live in CS so it won't be that far of a drive for me. I personally would like a place close to some water so we could fly fish as well. I have a couple friends who hang as well. I think they may be in also.

    I know Farish Rec Area has fishing lakes, but it's a military area (shows up as Air Force Academy Rec Area on the Google map linked above). Depending on how many people are interested, I could get a few guests in. There are several other lakes on the map but I don't know what winter access is like. I'll dig out my topos and see if there is Jeep trail access to them.

    this is a good idea because i've noticed several new members from CO in the past couple months, most are even from the front range.

    Awesome - should be convenient for a lot of people, then. And hopefully we'll get visitors from surrounding states like the Mt Roger's hang.

    it's a loooong shot....but I planned to visit my cousin sometime this winter. She's at Western State College in Gunnison, CO?

    I could fly into Denver shoot down to the hang and then head west to visit my cousin and get in some snowboarding!
