    Maddowg. If it is not here let me know I will bring a extra hammock and tarp and you can use it,
    Hope to see you there.

    Turtleburger or anyone else have specific meeting places or parking area? I'm sure we'll all arrive at different times and we should know where to go! This is my first time to the park so I'm not familiar with it.

    I am not familiar with the park, but looking at the map Turtleburger linked to, and finding the forest on Google earth, it appears the spot with the largest “P” in the south unit provides the biggest parking area. This parking area also looks to be near the river, and has a bit of elevation change. Might be nice to set up camp near the river. The way the weather has been going, we could still have some decent snow pack!

    I'm with chewbacca I do think that the "large P" parking area would be a good spot. I've never been there either, google earthed it looks good.

    I would like to join your guys as well. I've not been to one of the forum hangs before; do I just ask everyone I see in the parking lot if they're from Hammock forums or will there be a sign?

    well if you know the proper handshake and the correct chicken dance you can just show up and look for people in the woods hanging in hammocks.

    I'm guessing that if there in that parking lot that weekend, they are from HF,
    come and meet some new people and hang out. I dont think we would be to far away from the lot, but I will put my cell number on my BIG green van so if anyone has a problem finding the rest of us they can call.

    Is there any interest in having a group meal on Saturday either for lunch or dinner or both?
    Ideas---
    Taco in a bag, stew, chili, other ideas?
