    Ewker,

    Where are you hiking in the Red River Gorge? I go there all the time as it's only about 45 minutes from my house. It's beautiful there.
    Ewker, I'm about the same distance to Red River Gorge as Headchange. Do I smell a group hang at the Gorge coming on? *Sniff, sniff*

    every time the group wants to have a get together I suggest RRG. Unfortunately there are to many folks who want to go to Mt Rogers.

    I have been thinking about a RRG gorge gathering for a while now. I kinda had May 4-6 (Fri-Sun) in mind.

    I was just checking out a RRG website and read about the Clifty Wilderness area, looks very cool.

    I can forsee my thru state date getting pushed back a little. Kind of want to get school completly done before I leave. If you guys can give me notice to get it off work and want something in the next couple of weeks, I'm in.
    Is that too much to ask? Girls with frikkin' lasers on their heads?

    Hey all, newbie here and I thought this would be a good place to start.
    My first question is: What is the minimal weight of your hammock setup (hammock, insulation, tarp, guy lines, stakes, etc.) for a wet, windy, 30 or maybe even 20 degree night?

    I got converted to hammocks when my gf brought one back from Greece, now I never want to sleep on the ground again. I understand that a hammock setup will probably weight more than a ground one, but I think its worth the weight. Thanks for your input!

    Welcome to the site. I've never weighed all of my set-up before. My hammock is a Hennessy Hyperlight which is right at 1 lb. without the tarp. Nice to see another Georgia hanger. Maybe we can get together for a good hanging.

    Thanks for the link, I spent quite a while on your site after I made that post. I think I am just going to read up for a bit on here and get a sense of what everyone is using.

    I am trying to get up the guts to do the AT at some point... but its going to be a while from now and I want to get good (good and light) gear and some more miles in before I make an attempt.
