    Belgium/Netherlands Hang 2012 ?

    Hello All -

    I would like to commence discussions on a group hang here in Belgium or the Netherlands for some time before the year end. However, I am not sure I am the best person to organize such an event. I have never hung a hammock as of yet, and I am still waiting on my hammocks to arrive in the mail. However, I am very interested in being a part of something this year. I see that there was an event last year, so if hopefully some of the folks who were involved last year would be interested again for this year, then I think a plan could be had.

    Best,

    Little Ray

    You can count me in,i know some good places in the ardennes but it would be illegal to hang there,i dont care tho .
    We should also include people from germany,it being a neigbourcountry,also dont wonna let someone feel left out
    I have a piece of private property,but its just a Meadow with 2 horses and some trees on it.
    We cant go hiking there,but no one is gonna bother us there .
    Just my thoughts.

    Hey Tom,

    Great. Not sure I want to do any illegal hanging. I do not want us to get a bad reputation. I was thinking long term it would be good if we had a place or region where folks could meet up for a hang on a regular basis.

    If we go to the ardennes it is allways gonna be illegal unless you got
    consent from the land owner,and thats not gonna be easy when you dont know to who the land belongs . The others who organized it last time will know what to do

    Hello All -

    My WBBB has arrived. I am ready for a hang. I hope others are interested as well. Lets keep this alive and get together in 2012.

    I am still a unsure about a hang where it is illegal even though the Ardennes would be an ideal place. Perhaps we can find someone with some property who would be willing to let us camp; otherwise it may be best to take this elsewhere.

    I have sent out a message to zyhano as he organized a hang last year; and tjalling sent me a message stating interest.

    In any event, if there are folks out there interested in a hang in Belgium/Netherlands or anywhere else close by lets try to see if we can make it happen.

    Could be fun, depending on dates and all.

    Let me think about some legal possibilities and more and I'll get back later once I know more. And of course if others have faster info that is always welcome...

    That would be great to find something legal. Not that I am worried about the hassle, but do not want to give hammock camping a bad name and do not want to promote it on this forum. Additionally it would be good if there was a place or 2 that could be relied upon for habitual hammock campers.
