    Ok so I've been looking for local SoCal hangers. It looks like we have more then enough for good sized hang. So.... Lets put one on.

    So lets start networking to see who's in SoCal and where every one would like to go. Even if you can't that's ok we can always plan more and in more than one local.
    The idea is lets start getting in to the "Piney Woods"

    Are we talking about camp grounds or the National Forest? I'm not all that familiar with Big Bear besides the areas around the lake. I've spent a few weeks up in Holcomb but that's about it. It's dry up there -- are fires allowed? I know there's no water up there either so are we talking about hiking in or staying around our vehicles where we have access to water?

    Some places for a hang

    First it all works for me. But we have a choice of both. So far Camp grounds allow fires. Holcomb valley camp ($16)is a dive in camp has fire rings, privies but no water. Heart Bar($20) has it all. Serrano Campgrounds($26) has it all.

    With a base camp more people will be able to come share the cost of the camp site and allow others that what to go on a hike to still bug out.

    It's still posible to put together a backpack hang.
