    3-4 friends are planning on going to the camp area just west of 3 bridges at Porter Lake in the Apalachicola Nat Forest. (The last weekend of this month). I've got a hammock that needs to be field tested. Were not planning anything big, We will be on motorcycles and packing light, and could end up some were else Sat evening, not sure.

    I could be interested in a nearby hang, however it would have to be somewhere I can drive into as I am not up to hiking in at this time. I am in Sopchoppy, actually in the Apalachicola Nat Forest.

    SamD- see post 21. You can drive and hang. It may be 6:30-7 before we get there. Go down the little rut road out the SE end and follow it around go past the nice spot to great spot. just-bobby

    Will try for that if you don't see me in the "great spot" please check the "nice spot" for me.

    Are there any permits need for this site?

    A buddy of mine just did a bike trip in the Apalachicola NF.

    It looks like at least one person brought a hammock. I stole this picture from his bike groups Facebook page...

    I will be bringing some tools to remove nails and tent stakes that some idiot drove into some of the trees.

    Also watch for these spiders they are hard to see even though they are near 3" long!
    They are everywhere, seemed like nearly every open space between trees or plants had one or more!
    Gotta love mother nature!
