    impromptu hang near Lake Berreyessa?

    Attention northern cali hangers!

    I'm looking to set up north of Lake Berreyessa this saturday to test out some gear I made. Does anybody out there have this weekend off and like to join me?
    Fair warning, this is BLM land so there are no established campsites and thus no amenities. The weather looks to be partly cloudy for saturday/sunday with a low of 32degrees. I'm still not sure on the exact spot I'm going to set up, usually I have gone solo and just wing it.

    I live in Woodland and am planning on heading towards the lake about 10 am to arrive at about noon(it doesn't have to take that long for me to get there, but I can't help but stop and soak in some sweet views an/or take some pics)

    I'd like to do some hiking in the afternoon or possibly some fishing and plenty of lounging/reading in the hammock. I'm probably going to keep my site pretty close to the road, in case my underquilt is a total failure I can still bail to my truck. Also, to be able to bring some luxury items.

    If anybody is interested hit me up with a PM or reply to this thread, I'll be keeping an eye on it in the following days.
    I will be going regardless, but it would be great to have some company!

    It's all fun and games until Zodiac shows up.
    I prefer to remain an enigma.

    Oh man, I have plan already.

    Lets plan another one in advance. I don't know how many NortCal hangers we have.

    Have a wonderful time.

    I'd like to see some different set-ups but ...

    I don't have any interest in camping when it gets dark at 5:00 pm. What do people do with 14 hours of darkness out there? I know that a lot of people winter camp and temps in Calif aren't bad but it's that darkness thing that keeps me from camping in the winter months.

    Having said that, I'm new to hammock camping and would like to see some of the different methods of attachment and accessories available. I plan on using the BB Warbonnet this summer. I live in the Sacramento area (Rocklin). I hope to meet some local hammock enthusiastic this summer.

    Cheers,
    Bob

    What do people do with 14 hours of darkness. Light a few lanterns, start a camp fire, and talk to the people that are there with you.
    lanterns and a fire chases the darkness away.

    I cheat and bring a hot tent long with my hammock gear.

    To the OP, sorry I could not join you this time. Lets plan something together soon. Anyone up for some snow hanging may be in February so there's enough time to plan it?
