Should have been more specific - that's what I was referring to - the FTA
Kitching Creek campsite. But I'll take all your advice and take the tent.
Drat! Was really looking forward to a nice trip with the new hammock.
BTW, I just got a new Hennessy Asym. And Howard Pardue just got a new Speer
hammock this past weekend in the silent auction at the Southeastern Foot
Trails Coalition conference. Guess we'll have to go hiking together
sometime and compare notes.
