The original post was inadvertently deleted. This hang will be in conjunction with another group. The links are going to be posted at the bottom. I’ve been to several hangs with the other group and this is the itinerary for this hang. Eventually, maybe in the Spring, I plan on having my own hangs. Thought this would be a good opportunity to let those who are interested find out what it’s about. You do not have to join the other group just sign up here that you are going and I will make sure you are on the list. Below is the Itinerary.
Friday - Arrive at any time and set up their camp site. I cook Venison Sloppy Joes, Cheesy potatoes.
Saturday – We head out to David Crockett State Park for breakfast. It’s tradition.
Next Stop – Sgt. Troy’s Military Store, http://sgttroys.com/ . It’s tradition.
Paddle the Buffalo – weather dependent activity. Those who don’t want to paddle can find trails and waterfalls nearby, or visit Hohenwald.
Community camp cookout – Be prepared for some really yummy camp food. This is the one activity that everyone contributes too. The rest varies depending on whom shows up. Could be good conversation around the campfire, musicians strumming and singing, and of course laughter. Walk about tour – to see
Sunday – Head out at your own leisure.
It’s a pretty laid back hang with other Hammockers. Many of the people who come to these hangs also belong to Meetup groups. If this sounds like something you would like to try and you don’t have a hammock then bring what you have.
There is no cost for the campsite. There are nice bathrooms and they are heated when it is cold. There are water pumps around the camp ground that have been hooked up to city water.
Here are a couple of links:

Directions: If you know where the Lovelace Café is, you drive past it and follow the signs for Natchez Trace. The Camp turn is on or very near mile marker 386. Look at the map on the site mentioned above. It’s a beautiful drive up the Trace and there are many interesting stops if you want to take the time. I’ve seen Armadillos and Wild Turkeys along the roadside on the grass near the road.
