    Poll: Where will you be living in late January?

    Hey everyone, this is a poll in response to Hammock Engineer's thread on trying to plan a winter hammock campout. Please respond only if you are seriously anticipating attending a weekend campout near the end of January. Maybe this will make it a little easier to find a central location for everyone.

    I've clustered states into 4 major groups so feel free to post your exact state in a reply. Also, if I've not included your state (I'm going by what I've seen people mention about their location) then choose the cluster your state is closest to.

    Michele where's the poll? Good thing you started it, I haven't started a poll yet and knew I'd mess it up. Good thing you beat me to it. (smiley face)

    I'm in Ohio, minutes from KY or IN.

    It's up now....when you start a poll, the message posts first and then you have to build the poll, so for forum addicts like me and you, we see the message before the person gets the poll built. I tried to make it so we can see clusters of people and go from there.

    I don't see why not....as long as where we all end up going has a viable site for you to set up a tent. Only reason I brought that up was because when Ed Speers hosted the hangout in Hot Springs. NC, one person I like to refer to as, "Bob the bear-fighter", showed up w/his tent and had a difficult time finding level ground, so he ended up sleeping his first night in a hammock....slept so good he woke 1/2 the camp up with screams because he was dreaming he was getting attacked by a bear! HILARIOUS!!!

    If you are at all considering hammocking, coming to one of these things is the BEST place to learn about it and see, in person, what it's about. I hung my hammock the first time at Hot Springs (with help from Just Jeff and others) and it's been a cinch ever since.

    if you camped at the Hot Springs campground I don't see why he didn't find a place to tent. Lots of places there.

    I haven't found a spot yet that I couldn't tent

    I will hopefully be able to attend. If so I will be coming from south central PA near the Mid point. (Pine Grove Furnace).

    Would not mind driving 500 or 600 miles to get to where ever its held, but in Jan where I live the weather can prohibit driving very far. Lots of sleet and freezing rain. You can bet there will be a week or two in Jan. where everything in N Arkansas will be covered with an inch of ice, including the roads!
