    Indiana/Michigan Older NEWBIE!!

    New to the forum. I've been out hanging one time and really enjoyed it. Went up to Baldwin, MI and stayed along the PM River. Like to do some locally and really want to head back up to the Manistee RT and NCT. Hoping to head back out in September and October. Would really like to find a group that would like to do the same.

    Thanks, Scott

    Welcome to the forums!
    When the wife asks, I simply say "Shug made me do it".

    Welcome to the forums from Michigan. Come on up to a group hang sometime and meet a few of the locals. The Chili Hang is coming up in October 7-9 and the Gluttony Hang is November 3-6 (link in my signature).

    Thanks everyone for the welcome.

    Michigan Dave, where will the chili hang take place in Michigan?

    Lost Woodsman, your daughter will love Grace College and Winona Lake. They have a really nice trail system for walking and bicycling. The mountain bike trails through the woods are nice to hike but you'll have to step off the trail when a bicycle comes through. We should grab some coffee when your up, I think we have a lot in common.

    Scott

    Orthocad,

    Here's the link to the Chili Hang... https://www.hammockforums.net/forum/...7-8-amp-9-2016

    And here's the link to the Gluttony Hang... https://www.hammockforums.net/forum/...I-Nov-3-6-2016

    Last but not least, here's a YouTube video of a previous "Gluttony Hang" that MichiganDave made. Well, Dave can correct me, but this is what eventually became known as the Gluttony Hang... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L9T_F4AYjZ4

    While I've never made it to an actual hang event yet, they do look like a great time. I'm going to miss the Chili Hang but do my best to try and make the Gluttony Hang. For crying out loud, there's going to be bacon cupcakes there! Markr6 here on the forums is from Fort Wayne. Maybe if it works out that we can all head up to a hang in Michigan, we can work out a carpool or something.

    As for Grace College, yep, my daughter is going to love it. It's the perfect fit for her. I'll shoot you a message next time I'm up that way and have some extra time for coffee.

    Video looks like the winter hang. A lot of the same group, but in February. From what I hear, the gluttony and bacon theme carries through to that hang. Looking forward to seeing everyone again.
