    that's the quote of the day.

    In the periodic discussions that pop up comparing hammock styles, here's a point in favor of the enclosed HH style---keeping everyone together in the high spin cycle.

    I have a few pictures from the Davidson River CG trip with Short Stuff posted to my Photobucket album. Please do bear in mind that there are some non-hammock pics there, so no whining to the mods about it, please.

    We both had a pretty good time with that trip. I'm hoping we can go somewhere once more before the cool weather sets in and his mom won't let him go. Maybe a local trip somewhere fairly close to us, RRG would be nice if I could find an easy trail for him to go on to a campsite. Any suggestions?

    Hey Hooch
    If I'm not mistaken. It's been awhile since I've been there, but I believe that the trail to Rockbridge is fairly easy at the gorge or you could go to Whittleton Campground at Natural Bridge(first campground on the left). They have primitive sites across the creek from main campground and theres a small trail in the back that takes you to a cave and an arch. Used to spend many of summer days down there when I was Short Stuff's age.
