    Grout Pond in VT? USFS LINK

    Or Branch Pond in VT as well? They are both easily accessible and lots of trees around them

    Well assuming nothing changes with my work schedule I should be working both the possible dates. Oh well maybe next time.

    I will let you know as soon as I get a chance to drop up there. It is in Andover, North Andover, Mass, and right off the highway - easy access!

    Hey Yukon,

    I'm not familiar with Branch Pond but was talking to the Jersey Bears and they said Grout pond was a great place for up to around 12 hangers. It's first come first serve and we have had around 20 for the last two hangs.

    I'm open to Branch pond if your familiar with the site and have more information. I'm also waiting to here back from SkyPainter. I'm still looking for a plan A and holding the original site as backup. I'm going to try to get an update at the end of August.

    You guys allow Yankee fans to this hang?

    I'd love to hang in Mass., as long as it's not the same weekend as MAHHA.

    There goes the neighborhood!

    Definitely interested, assuming work schedule permits. Have this thread bookmarked; will keep an eye out for final date. Look forward to meeting local hangers and undoubtedly learning a bunch.

    If we wanted to try DAR I think we'd have to plan well ahead and book it as soon as the season starts.
    We can book up to 6 months in advanced. Anything after that date is slim as they book up fast on the group site.

    Are we shooting for the Sept. date? My parents are having their 50th wedding anniversary in Oct. 6. I am now hoping for the September hang.

    I would love to get away. Too bad the DAR in Goshen is booked lots of good spots there. I just drove thru last Monday and it was dead not a soul in sight but that was after everyone left I'm sure. I talked to the rangers last year and they said people do generally share well...so maybe if there is only a couple of folks camping...their group site is separate and would hold many. I could make a call. See what the situation is for peoples reservations.
