  • Oct 2017 Hunger Hang At Merchants Mill Pond State Park NC

    Spent 26-30 Oct at a group hammock hang that the wife and I put on at Merchants Mill Pond State Park NC. We had folks from 4 states in attendance ( NC, SC, VA and PA ). Had about 25 hangers total.

    10 of us used Hammeck Stands and there were 4 Hammeck Stands with custom tarps ( there are only 6 of these customer made tarps.

    Temperatures got down to 36 Thursday night and 42 Friday night. Don't know what the lows were Saturday night but is was warm. Spent a fair amount of time sitting around the cave man tv ( fire ).

    One group of hangers braved the swamps and went paddling and got some pictures of one of the Alligators living in the swamp. When ever the wife and I go paddling we never see the gators.

    Got word of a major storm that was going to hit sometime Saturday /Sunday night so one group left early as the worst part of the storm was suppose to go thru their route home. The rest of us just packed up what we did not need. I took down our Hammeck Stands and tarp and rehung our hammocks from trees.

    About 3:30 AM the sound of rain woke me up. By 5 AM the rain was getting worse so I took down our rigs and we headed for home. The rain got worse and at times we had problems seeing the road.. The others said they left about 7 AM. No one got wet under their tarps which is always good.

    There were 5 of the 4 legged furry hangers at the hang. For our dog Sam ( 17 month Lab mix ), this was his 5 hang. He does not like to sleep in a hammock which is good as he to big to share a hammock with. Three of the smaller dogs did sleep in hammocks.

        yes,,a few more

        The Blue Tan tarp set up is mine. The Orange Black trap belongs to Lori and Tim Meck who made the Hammeck Stands we were using at the hang.

        The inside of these tarps are large enough that at one hang, we had 12 people inside one waiting out a rain storm.
