Springer Mtn GA Hammock Campout--Dec 31, 2005
- Currently we have 6 confirmed hammockers for our next Southeast
Hammock Hangers Campout! We will overnight on the summit of
Springer Mtn, GA--the southern terminus of the Appalachian Trail!
Everyone is welcome, so join us for this free winter campout.
Signing up is not necessary and many hammockers show up at the last
minute--we often have 10-20 hammockers. Many past AT hikers also
share this campsite on New Year's Eve each year. And often, new AT
hikers also camp here to start their thru-hike on New Year's Day.
One year, we also had 4 southbound hikers who finished their AT thru
hike on New Year's Eve--they assumed our party was just for them!
This is definately a gathering of hikers and hammockers! We'd love
to see ya there.
Note that Springer Mtn is a primitive, high-elevation, back-country
location and severe weather is likely. Each camper must be
responsible for their own food, gear, and transporation. For more
