    Would love to go but its a 7hour drive for me. I'm at the ocean. By time I got there the day would be about over and I would need to leave the next morning to be home by a decent time. Maybe ill attend one of these things when it closer to Shenandoah National Park or Jefferson National Forest up north near Waynesboro. That's only a 3 hour drive so it's not so bad for a 1 night event. I might go if I get a friend to go with me and stay an extra night to make the trip worth it.

    Yep, I understand about the long drive. Just have to weigh out weather or not the time in camp is worth the driving time.

    Gunner is right. There is a trail just across the road from the group site that will take you to the AT. Hiking to were you could get a sunrise could be doable if you get an early start. I think the ridges you would want to go to are about a 1000' accent. Not sure about the distance.

    I'll have to clear it with the rangers, but having your motor cycle sitting there at the display, showing a compact over night hammock system packed on it, might be interesting.
    Matter of fact, I think it would be good to have someones light weight, packed backpack with everything need for several nights on the trail would be good too.

    On displays like the motorcycle & backpack, it would be helpful to have a sign or poster telling of the light weight, compact but extremely comfortable sleep systems.
    Some people stop & look but are not quite ready to ask questions about what they are looking at. Some basic info on a sign/poster might bump them up into the conversation mode.
