    Hey, there's a pretty good possibility I'll be hiking into Hot Springs about this time. If I'm in that neck of the woods...I'll definitely be there for a few zeros!! I won't be the total newbie this time! haa haa

    I will be driving over on Saturday again -- and may bring one of the elders from my church who is getting into hammocking (just got a Hennessy). I will bite the toes of anyone who tells him how good I am at photoshop

    Michele, I can get to Hot Springs via the Fontana area or via 441 / Newfound Gap Check your PMs for my home phone in case you need a ride from one of those.

    Cooool! Thanks. I didn't read this before I responded to the PM, so no need to respond to it. This is pretty exciting. Hope it works out. I think by that time, I'll need a good soak in the Springs!

    sounds like he might want to put you to work, huh?<g>.

    apologies to frolicking & others for not getting the rest of the info for the "basic hammocking" article to frolicking to finish up.
    i've been pushing to get some other things done.

    I will be in St. Louis, Mo., running the Spirit of St. Louis Marathon that weekend. I'll be thinking about you all resting comfortably in your hammocks at the banks of a nice cool river. Maybe I'll be able to come next time around. Take lots of pictures and videos!

    yeah, ed's a nice guy. even though he sells his own line of hammocks, he's glad to help someone understand how to use another type of hammock.

    Ok I am a little slow. My new ATC Companion doesn't list the milage to to Hot Springs. I am thinking it will be 150ish. That puts it at 15-18 days out from Springer. If I am not well north of there with my March 18-ish start date, I'll try to make it.
    Is that too much to ask? Girls with frikkin' lasers on their heads?

    It's at mile 208.

    Ed usually schedules the April hangout in Hot Springs to coincide with Trailfest there. Trailfest is the 27-28th this year so I guess he's moving away from that tradition.
