    The etiquette for all posted hangs is the same as the forum itself: all welcome. You'll learn a lot, too. People just as friendly and willing to share information in person as they are on the forum. Go try out some hammocks.

    You are not allowed to be there if you don't want to come. Otherwise it is a case of the more the merrier. Protocol, such as it is, dictates a family friendly attitude with a willingness to welcome all except for those that don't show up. I don't know the details for this one, but normally food sharing is quasi expected for the Saturday evening meal. Otherwise to each their own. Not sure how the money is going to be handled but I'm sure that will fall into place.
    I may be slow... But I sure am gimpy.

    Thanks for the responses all, and thanks for doing the scout work Knotty. I believe the lady and I will be joining (Just have to make sure she can get free of work). We just were not too far from Dingman's a few weks ago, when we went to Stokes State Forrest for a family camping trip. Stokes was really nice too, with some some really great spots for hanging, and they are $20 a site or $3 per person on group sites.

It might make a difference to the better half and get her to come.
    JayS, I called Digman's and checked into the bathrooms; they are open year round with hot water as well as showers. As far as camping goes, your wife cannot do much better than this.

    Also, count me in for contribution to Saturday night's dinner. I have a few ideas of some I things could make. Does it make sense to have a few of us team up to go in on some main course dishes?

    Just a quick reminder that ground dwellers are welcome. If you have a spouse or friend that's hesitant to come because they don't do hammocks (yet) they're welcome to bring a tent. Heck, Mrs. Knotty plans to sleep in the back of our SUV.

    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.

    We'll have to persuade him to head to Dingmans. Maybe he doesn't know about the great fly fishing on the Delaware river or the pig roast I'm trying to work out.
