    NorCal 2012: Boggs Mountain

    Let's plan a March 2012 hang at the Boggs Mountain State Demonstration Forest.

    A 'car-camping' or "drive up and dump your stuff" kind of hang.

    Poll closes on Feb 6th 2012

    Information about Boggs at the official Cal Fire site and at a volunteer organization's site.

    Link to useful PDF map of Boggs.

    OneThing lives out that way (he suggested the location) and will be jumping in here with useful and exciting information about Boggs and the surrounding area.

    Boggs is a great location for a group hang.

    2. Large Camp site open year round with fire rings, picnic tables, Park & Hang, Full grocery store 3 miles away, Site is seldom used, Some of the best hiking trails in the area.
    3. Harbin Hot Springs
    4. One Thing Recommended

    No! Two Hangs! in March in Nor Cal.

    I figure they complement each other. A car hang so folks who can and want to can try out new gear, followed a few weeks later by a reunion (or new blood) at Feather Falls.

    Cool Location

    I had a preview of Boggs Mountain State Demonstration Forest yesterday. It made a great day hike, and I could see that the terrain lends itself very well to hammock hanging. Thanks Eay for suggesting this place.

    I didn't vote in the poll, because in March I tend to visit the SouthWest. But my schedule doesn't really firm up this far in advance.

    OneThing makes a great suggestion for including Harbin Hot Springs. I have had many enjoyable hammock hangs there as well.

    OneThing is our guy on the ground out there: it was his suggestion for a site.

    Ok, I'm just getting back to HF after talking to EAY a while ago, I just seem to be so busy lately, anyways, OneThing, the pics are great, and I think the area is prime location. I'll definitely leave my schedule open for March, but I'll be starting school in the spring and I don't yet know what my schedule will look like but I'll be only taking one class the first semester as a pre-req. I'm babbling, sorry. I'm down for whatever, whenever.

    I just remembered (was reminded by my wife) that we are going to Dillan's Beach for a weekend getaway - a friend of the family has a vacation home and we are getting to stay for the weekend of the 10th for free! So, two hangs and a weekend vacation, looks like my march is shaping up nicely! I hope this works out for everyone, but I wanted to get this out there as early as possible. I voted for the weekend of the 3rd.

    I voted for 16, 17, 18 mainly on hopes of better weather, later in the month, and being able to ride my motorcycle there. But any weekend would probably work for me, if I can make it at all.
