    I'll be there! Can't wait.

    Can we get a facsimile of J.D. sitting at the sign-in board waving at everyone?!? (That's what he did at the 2010 hang... when we were the only folks in the entire campground.)

    I looked through the Dingman's Campground website and others for dates of operation. Saw somewhere that it is open all year. But, based on last time (end of December 2010) when the bathrooms were closed for the year, do you know if the bathrooms will be open? It might make a difference to the better half and get her to come.

    Ok ,looking for some advise here, My wife spent a couple of hours last night looking at campground in the poconos info.
    It all started when she went to look up Dingmans to check out the campground website and somehow she ended up reading post after post about BEARS!
    She is now totaly freaked out about the bears, talking about this time of year all they do is eat to get ready to hibernate and how we will all look like taco dinners in our hammock!
    I am sure alot of you guys have camped in bear country plenty of times and any thing that might ease her concerns would be helpful.

    There are bears in Wharton State Forest, Lebanon State Forest, Greenwood Wildlife Management Area if that helps. They only make the news if the wander into Mt Laurel or Delran.

    Don't cook where you sleep, don't take a cheeseburger to bed, they go for the easy pickin's like coolers left outside, stuff left on the picnic table, that sort of thing. Mostly the walk around sniffing out food and we are not food for black bears.

    if there are any dogs in the group, they will make a fuss at the bears and Yogi hates Fido.

    I've stayed at Dingman's a handful of times, great campground w/ super friendly staff. They do charge for cooking/grill rings though, so bring your own if you have one.

    Also, re: bears I've not yet seen one at the campground, but as mentioned there are plenty in the woods in the DWA and I've only seen them crossing some roads in the area. In my experience they've been smallish black bears, and they're fairly skittish. Take care of your food and there shouldn't be any issues.

    It is a very alert, active sheep, with a stylish, lively carriage.

    I tour & bike camp with a Mark Nobilette built Protovelo, and ride a bunch of others. Have any bike questions?

    Hi hangers,

    I'm newer to the forum, (which has been amazingly helpful at the tent/hammock conversion), and though I hear about group hangs from misc posts, I don't know the etiquette involved. Is this open to all that are interested? I don't want to be presumptuous if there is a protocol for who is invited to attend. This looks fun though, and I think my gf and I would be interested in joining.
