    A big second to that line of thinking! Done that many, many times. Originally because I couldn't find someone to hike with when I could hike ... so ended up solo and found it very enjoyable to be alone in the woods at times.

    Got the "Butt bump" in the middle of the night myself, that's the least of our worries... Think it's their way of saying, "Nice rig man" Lol
    I did what I had time for, put up Claytor JH w/tarp and laid out in back yard for 3 hrs Sat just as the sprinkle started and w/in 30 min went to a light rain. Really enjoyed hearing the rain on the tarp, watching rabbits play tag in the next yard over. I thought it was the ducks that liked the rain? Just stay quiet for 3o min and nature will put on a show for you! Need more time to get out for an overnight though. Really tough when you're on call a lot...
    We've got to get a quick hang in OH. just to get aquainted, our numbers are increasing!
    Stormcrow met some others down Shawnee St Forest and had a good time. Wayne Natl Forest (S. of Lancaster, OH), looks like a possibility. I will have to find out moreabout it...

    I'm down for a Shawnee hang or Wayne national. Sounds like a good hang idea. It would be great to put somethin together like Trout and Mule did in Indiana.

    Supply food (Dutch Oven meal, Brownies) and they will come... I make a mean (Sweet N Hot) salsa
    Wayne's closer and no fee or permit needed for Primitive camping from my reading. (Bring your cat hole scooper)
    Maybe a gear raffle too... (Need some whoopie slings)
    I think those are the main "Ingredients". Lots of conflicts with other hangs in May and Jun looks like... Doesn't mean we can't do a dry run though...

    Wildcat Hollow in Wayne National Forest might be a good location. Took several scouts on a Backpacking Merit Badge trip earlier this month. Several very nice sites along the 15 mile trail, but all water must be carried in. We had 7 hammocks & 2 tents.

    I think a good water source would have to play a role in site selection. For me anyways.

    We cached a few jugs of water just off the road, near the trail and had plenty of water for use in the campsite. Worked well for us.
