    I'm in for any weekend in March, save the weekend of the 31st. That is Easter. I'm also out the first week of April.

    MM, I've been there in March with single digits and funny enough I really do have to haul a tenderloin strip soon. My buddy carried three game hens last time!

    The state arrangers are pretty laid back if you don't make trouble and stay in the designated camp sites. They have to be more concerned with the Sewanee kids extracurricular activities. The Fiery Gizzard has a four tent per site limit with an average of 6 to 8 sites per camp,and I believe most of the area is similar. Never hung with more than two here. We could at worst break into a few groups and hang in adjacent sites within the camps in which we stay!

    MM, I went with Midnight Hadron...required wear in the spring!


    EDIT...I work in that area all the time. I'm in Indianapolis next week, but I will go by the Visitor Center the week after and get the skinny in person from a Ranger (not a volunteer or desk worker) on how many hammocks they will feel comfortable with in a site!!!

    Afoot and light-hearted, I take to the open road,
    Healthy, free, the world before me,
    The long brown path before me, leading wherever I choose.

    As long as they compliment Rayn's pants, Traffic will be fine with either one.

    Well Roche, Gredemeer ended up with my old ones and I picked up the last pair of mediums to be found out there this fall. So if Traffic needs to get into 'another' guys pants I should have mine...

    How does your pair of mediums size up against my pair of large?

    I was in XL, but remember I dropped some lbs. they fit much better. I might've enjoyed a pair of large to be a little 'roomy' around camp but in the end these are great.

    I'm on vacation in VA hanging in my pop's back yard as I type.

    I will do my best to get up to the Visitor Center next Monday or Friday either before or after I go to Indy to get the skinny on the sites. At the latest I will have that info by the first week of December.

    I'm proposing three weekends that run Thursday evening through Sunday afternoon: 28 Feb - 3 Mar, 7 - 10 Mar or 14 - 17 March
