    That's great Triggerhpy! How's Holcomb during summer i.e., do you have to reserve a space months in advance? how many campers per site? (I see site fees are around $16 bucks per vehicle.)

    If possible, I propose an outing at Holcomb in mid-late August!

    Thanks, Triggerhpy! I'll add it to my list. Not too far for me at all.

    I thought the cause was worthy enough of a Public Google Docs spreadsheet. We could get a nice long list going. Here is the link, feel free to add new columns for new subject matter. These are a few of my favorite places.

    Because you fall through the clouds if you try to lay on them, so the next best thing is a hammock.

    Great idea, Sonic! Can't wait to see it fill up. This will be a very useful tool for hanging in our areas. I'll start filling in information as I come across it and spread the word to others.

    An idea for the spreadsheet - maybe consider adding screen names of socal hangers so once a "hang" is organized we can get the word out. Just a thought.

    I'll post a couple spots when I get home. For those that know local areas, There's Blue Ridge Campground, and lots of stealth camping around, on the PCT outside of Wrightwood. Start from Inspiration Point near Mountain High.

    Another is John's Meadow, outside of Big Bear. It's about a 4 mile walk from the trailhead, no access by vehicle at all. It's an awesome place to hang.
