    Michigan Hang Em' High Event!

    Howdy,

    Looking to get feedback on starting a yearly hang event for Michigan. IF you think this would be fun and something new let me know and I will try to help find a date and a suitable location. I think it would be a good time to see all the local hangers and far away folks in one get together for a weekend.

    See others hang setups
    Meet new people
    maybe even demos of gear...

    Anyway let me if you like the idea...

    Event : Hang Em' High
    Jed Cooper: You don't remember me, do you?
    Reno, Cooper Hanging Party: No.
    Jed Cooper: [showing his hanging scar] When you hang a man, you better look at him.

    I'm in. I start the bidding with a mid-October suggestion, summer is a busy time for a lot of folks. As for location, MRT/NCT is pretty popular. and would offer both hiking and paddling. I'm not married to either suggestion, I'm just putt'n it out there.

    Edit: Opps didn't initially see that it was a poll already suggesting October.

    Seaton Creek CG is a great location for a group hang Friday night and those wanting to hike in for Sat night can do some back country hanging...

    I'm in for the fall. I would need a few weeks notice on when. I have IMTS in September but after that I am free til the snow flys.

    Also Seaton Creek has plenty of good sites for hammocks.

    Yeah more dates please. I say this as a Michigan football season ticket holder. My fall is busier than my summer! September 29 weekend is great for me.
