    Linville Gorge, May 1-3, Spring of 09

    Let's see if we can get a few hammockers together this spring to hike & camp in Linville Gorge, NC.
    Here's the thread were we began talking about it...
    http://www.hammockforums.net/forum/s...ead.php?t=7942

    And here's my first suggestion for thought...
    "I'd love to get back to the gorge! Lets plan a trip!!!
    Most people try to avoid the hot summer days in the gorge because it's not that high in elevation (can get awful hot & muggy), & the terrain usually requires sweat producing work

    Right now it looks like the only weekends I have committed are the 3rd & 4th weekends in April (Hot Springs & the Sat before), and the weekend of Trail Days (May 15-17).
    Those that are interested, lets hear what dates work best & least for you.

    Now I'm not as spry as Shug... I get along pretty well, & sometimes I have to pace myself slower so others I'm hiking w/ wont get exhausted. But I'm not much into high miles & pushing myself into fatigue
    I'd much rather set a reasonable distance to shoot for & enjoy some down time in camp in the evening.
    I kinda like to enjoy the morning around camp too

    So if some wanting to go are in need of more challenge, maybe we could come in from two different directions & meet at a chosen destination.

    Let me know what you think"

    With enough advance notice, count me in. It's on like Donkey Kong.

    Alright Hooch! See if any of the free weekends in April or March will work for you.

    Hiking Max Patch to Standing Bear this weekend, so that's out. Weekend after, I'm driving up to see short Stuff for Easter, so that's out. Weekend of the April 26 is out for the Hot Springs Hang. and I'm working the Speer booth at TD's this year, so that weekend's out. Some time in May or early June would be good.

    I have the same date constraints as Slowhike

    Those date constraints are the same with me, then I remembered that Mothers' Day is May 10 - the weekend before TD's. You may want to take that into consideration. I've been happily married for 39 years and I wouldn't want to change that

    Shug, October is probably my favorite month of the entire year, and a fantastic time to be in the Gorge. If you can make it, I'm sure some of the rest of us will too!

    This spring, Mother's Day, Easter, last weekend of April and last weekend of May will not work for me. Anything else should.
