    Hey folks....I have a couple of questions about this event.....1. Are dogs permitted to attend. 2. Is this island something my kids and I can paddle our kayaks to? 3. Potable water at site? 4. How big is the island?
    Thanks!

    Great questions.

    #1 - Yes dogs are permitted.
    #2 - From the parking area at Moon's Landing, the island is approximately 3,300 ft
    #3 - There is no potable water on the island. You will either need to bring your own or filter from the lake. That being said. I will be bringing two Coleman 3 gallon containers with me and I usually end up pouring out water before heading home. Others do this as well, so I am sure there will be more than enough to share if need be.
    #4 - At its longest the island is 1,315 ft and at its widest it is 927 ft. It does narrow up a good bit between the top and bottom.

    Here is a link to the island on Google Maps --> http://goo.gl/maps/OJNmW

    I hope this answers your questions and you are able to make this trip. It is a lot of fun and a great place to hang.

    Consider yourselves added. Can't wait to meet y'all. Super jealous of Muskrat for being able to make the FL hang this year. I hope I can talk the missus into giving me a pass sometime in the future for that hang.

    We've been trying to make this for a few years now. Glad we're finally going to be there.
    I understand there's a ferry involved, but is this a hike-in, drive-in or ??? If it's a hike in, how far?
    .
    So many trees, so little time...
    We follow where the Swamp Fox guides,
    His friends and merry men are we;
    And when the troop of Tarleton rides,
    We burrow in the cypress tree.
    The turfy hammock is our bed,
    Our home is in the red deer's den,
    Our roof, the tree-top overhead,
    For we are wild and hunted men.

    The campsites are on the outer edges of the island so once you get to the island there will be no hike. There is a slight hike from the secure parking area to the boat ramp (maybe a few hundred yards).

    Not a problem. I can't wait to meet you and Gumbo at the hang. Have a great time at your hang next week.
