    DAR State Forests (Mass.) Hang

    Turkey Day Weekend hang!
    If anyone is interested, I have reserved the group campsite at DAR State Forest in Goshen, Mass. from 11/25 thru 11/27 (Friday thru Sunday). According to my resources, the site is perfect for hanging lots of hammocks (thanks imspiritgirl!). I know that this hang is kind of short notice, and most people will probably be spending time with their families, but if you would like to join us, the more the merrier.
    I hope to see you there, happy hanging!

    I can bring an extra sleeping bag, TQ, and pads to supplement what you have if that would help you out.

    The long range forecast says that the temps will be in the upper 30's in the daytime and upper 20's at nighttime. As we all know, that could change at any point...

    Thanks for the advice! I am not too worried though, my dog will chase away any critters that come close. But I will spread the word. I would hate for him to get into it with a porcupine, that could end up messy.

    I hope to see you there!
