    Who is Planning a Long Distance Hiking Tip in '07

    I have been seeing some posts in different threads where people are planning a hike with their hammocks. I thought I would start this thread to keep a running list of people's hiking plans. It is also cool to see how many people are using this site to help plan their hikes. This could be anything from a week or 2 hike to a 6 month thru hike.

    Name: Nate
    Trail: AT thru hike
    Start Date: mid March
    Hammock of choice: DIY hammock
    Is that too much to ask? Girls with frikkin' lasers on their heads?

    Welcome, skyhiker2! Check out the threads on the Mt Rogers campout at the end of January, or stop by Springer Mountain on New Year's Eve - there will be plenty of cold weather hammocking options to check out. Checking it all out firsthand will give you a huge jump over just reading stuff online. And you'll get to meet all the folks whose posts you read!

    A friend, his son and I are planning on doing the Georgia portion of the AT starting Memorial Day weekend. All 3 of us intend to hang.
    Peace,

    Doesnt really qualify as long distance by some standards, but they are by mine because of family/work commitments:

    April - Foothills Trail (SC) end to end.

    Early Fall(?) - 1st 100 miles or so of the AT NOBO.
