    We'll post an open invite.
    If your interested in starting a hang, list the days and location and see who shows.
    The hardest thing about group hangs is fitting them into everybody's schedule.
    A few local states may join in as well.

    What I do to stay on top of the group hang forum is I subscribe to the entire forum.

    Go to the hangout, campouts and trip planning forum (http://www.hammockforums.net/forum/f...splay.php?f=44) and to the right of the dark orange coloured bar there is a grey tab for "Thread Tools" select it and select "subscribe to to this forum" then select Daily or Weekly updates (I chose weekly)

    Then once a week (or day) you will get an email containing 2 lists, New threads in the forum (important) and updated threads in the forum (useless)

    Just scroll through the New threads list and see if there are any new threads about a group meeting in Michigan.

    Here is an example of my most recent weekly update (new threads only) you'll see that is only 21 new threads. Hardly information overload, and it allows me to always know when a new group hang near me is proposed (Of course assuming the user posts the location in the thread title which I believe should be mandatory but whatever)

    Code:
    The following threads are new:
