    1st Annual Hammock Forums Winter Campout Ideas.

    I mentioned this on another thread. But how about a winter Hamock Forums Campout? Something where it is going to be really cold. That way everyone can show and demo their cold weather setups. I say the colder the better.

    Anyone else in? Sometime in January possibly.

    I'm up for January depending on how long it takes me to settle into the new house, job, etc. Maybe I could get some honey-do credit...

    Arkwater, I just saw where you are living. I feel the same as you when it comes to some of the get togethers. Maybe we could swing Kentucky or Tennesse.

    I'm open to almost anywhere. We should see how many people are in and where they are coming from. Then we can try to pick a place central to everyone. Somewhere in the mountains where the temps will get into the single digits. I am not very fimilar with places to go, everyone will have to help with that part.

    January would be a good time. It's after all of the holidays, plenty of time for everyone to work it into their schedules, it will be cold, every will have a couple months to perfect their setups, and Jeff could make it.

    sounds interresting to me. i don`t know were every body`s located, but i`m in the winston-salem area of nc.
    one place that comes to mind right off is the mount rogers area, va.
    mt rogers is the highest point in va. it`s a beautiful place w/ cold temps.

    I remember you talking about Mt Rogers. Something like 10 degrees with a temp of -10 in the wind. Sounds like what I was looking for. It would be nice to get as many of us together as can go. I think location is going to be a big factor in that. Other than the whole temperature thing.
