    Second Annual Oregon Summer Hang.

    OK...where, when and who's coming?
    I vote for Waldo Lake. Car camping, paddling, the Waldo Lake Wilderness next door. We could have a group car camp the first night and everyone could break off after that.
    Middle of August sound good (less bugs)?

    By the way, Mat from UK Hammocks will be coming to this one...all the way from Northern England

    PS--And of course we have to have a raffle to raise money for the HF

    SWEET! Lets nail down the date ASAP so I can hopefully get the whole thing off. Waldo is Great! However I have a counter offer. Elk Lake and not the big one. The one north of Detroit Lake. Improved campground NO Fee's, Trees, Trails including a recently burned section of Bull of The Woods Wilderness. For the strong of leg and stout of heart you could even hike to Opal Creek and back again. No motorized boats. Trout. 7 miles of bumpy forest service roads to get to it so the casual campers generally choose easier access campgrounds.

    But can we reserve enough sites? Also, hanging in a burn is NOT fun...trust me

    The burn area is north of the site by about 4 miles.

    I will be gone those dates. I leave for Olympic NP Aug 24th and come back Sept 2nd.

    I have camped at that Elk Lake, and driven my Civic loaded down with firewood and the kayaks on top. It is a bumpy road, but very passable even for a low rider like mine. While sites might not be reservable, I cannot recall right now, there were plenty of open sites when we were there in Sept of '09. If a couple of folks went in early, it would make things even easier.
