Any hangs in Virginia?
I'm new to hanging and I'd like to get in with a crowd to do my first official hang. Is there anything happening in the western half of Virginia? Barring that, is there anyone that could suggest something reasonably close by? (I'm in Blacksburg)
Jan 21 - 23 just out of Damascus VA.

Tomorrow Midnight will start the final planning stages where even more information (Overload?) can be had.
When you have a backpack on, no matter where you are, you’re home.

Hey Solobear. I usually go to the NC hangs, and the Mt. Rogers hang.
There's also a hiking club out of Roanoke, called the Roanoke Outdoor and Social Club that does a lot of hikes and backpacking and just general outdoorsy stuff.
I'm in Radford, so if ya want to meet up, just shoot me a PM. I'm headed out to the Linville Gorge hang, it's only about a 3.5 hour trip, Hot Springs in the Spring and Fall is about a 4 hour trip, and Dolly Sods is about 5.5. Haven't been to MAHHA.
It's better to have it and not need it than need it and not have it.

It's not procrastinating, its proactively delaying the implementation of the energy-intensive phase of the project until the enthusiasm factor is at its maximum effectiveness. - Randy Glasbergen
