    FL>North FL>Gainesville>Newnan's Lake North Tract>12/28-31/2014>The Pre-FL Hang Hang

    Going to go out for gear testing yet again before FHV. This time, I'm staying a little closer to town. I'll be at the Newnan's Lake Conservation Area, just northeast of town.

    Anyone wanting to come on out is welcome. I'll be there from the morning of Sunday, 12/28 to the afternoon of Wednesday, 12/31, as I have a long weekend that weekend due to the new year.

    Activities will be varied; we're close enough to town to make a quick trip in if anyone wants, there're several miles of hiking through there, it's easy to get to several good biking spots within an hour or so, and I'm likely to be doing trail runs on several of those days. There's a good fire ring with (if memory serves) a built-in grill, a water pump on site, and covered pavilions for cooking under if the weather doesn't cooperate.

    Here's hoping for cold weather!

    I hope you get many a hanger with you. Your a pleasure to talk to. Sorry I won't be able to make it due to work.

    I'll see you at FHV.

    If anyone is in North FL or South GA and looking for someone to help with gear and shake out the hammock, FLRider is a wonderful help and full of knowledge. This may be the trip for you before it gets really cold this season.

    Absolutely. Come on out!

    If needs be, I've got an extra PLUQ that I can loan you. It should be good to ~32* F for most folks, as I found it adequate at 25* F when fresh and not too cold to sleep at 24* F when tired.
