    I may take you up on the car pool. I'll get up with you as the date approaches.


    As a side note, I would also like to do the video tutorials at this gathering if possible. Refer to this thread. If you are a new member and you have never seen this thread, please take the time to read through it and offer any suggestions on what needs to be included in the tutorial videos.

    Still need a video camera, though I video camera that record to a hard drive or those small DVD's would be the best. My parents have a video camera that records to the 8mm tapes. If nothing better comes along I will get it from them and I will find some way to transfer the video to my PC for editing and posting.

    Here ya go:

    20th SEHHA Campout

    Hot Springs Campground

    Hot Springs, NC

    September 14-16, 2007

    Sponsored by Speer Hammocks, Inc

    Join us for the 20th SEHHA (SouthEast Hammock Hangers Association) campout the weekend of September 14-16, 2007. It's FREE! (except for your $5/nite camping fee). This is an informal group event and everyone is welcome--veteran, novice or future hammockers. See, learn and share your knowledge with other hammock enthusiasts. This will be an easy overnight campout at a commercial campground in a beautiful mountain river setting near the Appalachian Trail in western North Carolina! Join me, Ed Speer, author of the Hammock Camping book and editor of the Hammock Camping Newsletters for this fun early Fall campout. Previous trips were well attended and this is another chance for hammockers to show their stuff, share ideas, learn from others, and be a part of the 'new way'. Meet old friends and make new ones! Check out the newest hammock gear!

    Come help us celebrate the begining of Autumn!

    We will camp in the popular Hot Springs Campground approximately 45 minute drive northwest of Asheville, NC or 1.5 hours east of Knoxville, TN. The campground is located on the east side of the town of Hot Springs on Highway US 25/70 directly across from the Hot Springs Resort and Hot Tubs. The campground is situated on the French Broad River and our campsite (#413) is on the rivers' west bank. Road access to the campground is from Asheville, NC or Newport, TN on US 25/US 70. Trees are available for about 15 hammocks, so please bring hammock stands if you have them--we will also provide stands (contact us to reserve one). If you have folding camp chairs, bring them. Everyone will be responsible for his or her own transportation, gear, behavior, and camping fees ($5/person, see Ed at campsite). Camp central for the weekend will be the camp fire and large white canopy at site #413.

    Show up anytime and leave anytime, but don't miss our free Saturday evening
    hot dog cookout! This is now a tradition at each hammock hangers campout--it's not to be missed! Otherwise, everyone will be responsible for his or her own meals.

    Upon arrival, check in at the campground gate and ask for the 'hammock group'. Don't pay at the entrence gate--you pay me at the campsite itself. Karen and I will be at the campsite Friday afternoon thru midday Sunday, so arrive anytime after 1 pm Friday. The Hot Springs area abounds with outdoor opportunities like hiking, canoeing, kayaking, river rafting, fishing, mountain biking, etc--you can easily combine the hammock campout with an outdoor trip. The Appalachian Trail passes thru town and only a few hundred feet from our campsite. The French Broad River adjacent to our campsite is a popular fishing and floating stream.

    Find complete campground details at:

    http://camp.nchotsprings.com/

    Find driving directions at: http://nchotsprings.com/directions.html

    Early Fall temperatures at this elevation can fluctuate wildly, so expect daytime temps of 50-80F and nighttime temps of 30-50F. Rain is possible so be prepared.

    Signing up is not necessary, but letting us know will be appreciated-- ed@speerhammocks.com or call (828) 724-4444

    Everyone Welcome! See ya at Hot Springs! …..Ed "Not To Worry" Speer

    There's no "I'm trying to work it out" choice on this poll, but that's my answer.

    Having never been to a multi-hammock hang before, I assusme that this is one place that we should bring a hammock stand? All four of us want to go.

    I think Ed suggests stands if you have them, but there are a lot of trees on this group site. I will be there, unless this possible new job has me off at a school on the other side of nowhere.

    4D's, there are plenty of trees at that group site like Shadowmoss said. If you're bringing your whole crew, you may want to contact Ed about stands. He'll supply them if you let him know you need them. Hope to see you there!
