    Rev, I need to check with JD or ABHarris. I'll get back to you on this. The way it was described to me it sounded flat, but I'll need to confirm.

    I volunteer to Sherpa your gear in and out if that will help with your decision to attend or not. Just sayin.
    I like refried beans. That's why I wanna try fried beans, because maybe they're just as good and we're just wasting time. You don't have to fry them again after all.

    RamblinRev: I hope you can make it. Will help carry your gear to and from the hang site.

    Anybody who can visit the site ahead of time: It would help to have a good report on the path from the parking lot to the hang site. Pics and GPS data, if possible. Distance and grade are important. Probably good to think about the environmental impact of 100 people or so making several round trips in one weekend. What's the trail going to be like if it's wet?

    HC and TwoTents: You type too fast.

    Thanks for the offers to help with the gear. That's not the problem. The problem is _me_. If I lost 150# or so I _might_ be ok. But even that is questionable. The legs just don't work so good.
    I may be slow... But I sure am gimpy.

    Happy Camper.... I am refused access to the google cloud drive. You might want to check and see if you can set something so others don't have the problem.

    You are correct. I plan to post an "Official FALL MAHHA PLANNING" thread, with directions, detailed information, the Excel sign-up sheet that will included the list of people coming, what they want to bring for potluck, any activities or hikes that people are planning. The usual instructional thread. This thread is more of a save the date thread. lol, which is what I should have called it!

    And we can use this thread to chit-chat until I post the official one. If anyone wants to start talking about AT hikes or MAHHA activities, have at it. I'm interested in what anyone wants to plan for an official MAHHA activities. I've been to so many of these, I'm not quite sure what anyone wants to do anymore as far as hammocky activities. Newbies should not be shy about posting what you are interested in learning about or doing.
