    Sorry,
    I have NO memory of the hiking per-se, but I hung EASILY all along there, with a few times needing (or wanting, I'm not sure exactly) to go a bit further than planned. Again, not sure if it was to find a better hang or if I just wanted to. I do remember than when I really wanted to, it was no more than 1/4 mile to find an Ideal spot. The one place I do remember being GREAT to hang is behind the lost Mt Shelter. Lots of trees spaced "correctly", a shelter to gather at & a good spring/water source, with a new privy close at hand. Being behind the shelter was a bonus as all the conversation was in front & blocked by the well made Shelter.

    I'll look up my journal & post a few more hints & tips & some notes on what I thought of the hiking at the time.

    Should find it in a few minutes.
    When you have a backpack on, no matter where you are, you’re home.
    PAIN is INEVITABLE. MISERY is OPTIONAL.

    Shouldn't have any problems in that area to hang. Where are your planned camps at? Took me awhile to remember where Dickeys Gap was, I blew through there on a 28 mile day last year on Memorial weekend last year.

    I have used MRO a couple of times. They have parking and a place to shower at a bunkhouse across from the store.
