    Spring Virginia group hang?

    I know there are some fellow hangers from the central Va area on here. Might have overlooked a group hang in the area but was wondering if anyone would be interested in doing a group hang this spring.

    I haven't been able to get out on the trail much due to a back injury, but would like to do a easy weekend trip. Just trying to get over to the AT for a weekend. Anyone interested?

    MAHHA is not all that far from central VA. That's the day after tomorrow. Good time will be had by all.
    I may be slow... But I sure am gimpy.

    Yes, MAHHA this weekend! I live 90 miles north of Richmond (Prince Wm. County). The Hang at Crampton Gap is about 1.5 - 2 hours north of here.

    So... If you are free this weekend...?

    The rest of Spring is kinda booked up and no time for me.
    Happy Trails,

    I never drink water. I'm afraid it will become habit-forming.

    There's at least 4 or 5 of us around the Roanoke area, and I get up to Charlottesville every now and then for the weekend.
    The MAHHA and SEHHA hangs are this weekend and next, can you make it to one of them?

    Besides that, pick a weekend and a place and see if there's any response.

    It's better to have it and not need it than need it and not have it.

    Ditto im always up for hanging with HF friends. I just tell my GF its a seminar and its vital to my saftey on the trail that I attend these hangs , I leave late june for the LT so im trying to fit in as many one two nighters as possible before to sort out my gear. So any time before then
    Sometimes I like to hike and think, And sometimes I just like to hike.

    Hiking is'ent about waiting for the storm to pass its about learning to hike in the rain.
