    Any Michigan hangs comming up?

    I was wondering if anyone has some information on Michigan hangs coming. I know COVID put a whole wrench in things... but I am fairly new to this forum and don't know where to look for the Michigan hangs if any are posted. Any information would be greatly appreciated!
    PS: At these hangs... are people friendly enough to allow others to try out hammocks? I currently have only layed in my Asym Eldorado Hammock... would love to test out another. I would gladly allow anyone to try out mine.

    There is usually a hang in Yankee Springs every October, the Fall Hang and Chili Festival. Not sure what will happen with the pandemic and all.

    People are very friendly and usually do allow you to try hammocks out, as long as you take your shoes off and don't have any pointy things in your pocket.

    Will it be posted in this section? I bookmarked it so I guess I can keep refreshing every week or so. I would treat anyone's hammock like my own. I am very particular about my prehang routine and even how I lay.... call me neuritic I guess ;\ You definitely have to lay in a hammock with a bit of finesse, you can't just jump in......

    My prehang routine goes as follows
    1. Check all angles and knots for structural integrity.
    2. Unzipp all required zippers fully to not put stress on connections.
    3. Remove all carry from my person and put in designated storage spots.
    4. Test hang with slow slight ever increasing butt pressure.
    5. Position comfortably and take appropriate actions to deter bugs and the outside world.
    6. Fall alseep.

    Yes it will be posted here. Usually about two or three months prior.

    Usually the Fall Hang and Chili Festival falls on the weekend prior to Columbus Day (2nd weekend of the month). That would likely put it on October 9, 10, & 11 this year. However, that is only a guess/estimation, not an official statement. ��
