Re: [Hammock Camping] Re: WesternHammock Gathering
- Hey Walter
For all the camping I have done, it may come as a
surprise to some that I have never done either one of
As to car camp or hike/backpack, I am of the opinion
that hammocks have re-energized my interest in
backpacking. With the lighter weights, the greater
flexibility in finding neat camp sites, and the
freedom I feel as a result, I sort of feel like car
camping would be a little defeating of the point.
With that being said though, any hike into a camp site
does not need to be a monster. I don't know what
everyone's skill and endurance is when it comes to
backpacking so a short one would be fine.
Alright, so in either mountain range you suggested

best time to go? I only talked of the weekends
through the next 2-3 months because that is all I knew

- I'm in for both places as well and any kind of camping set up is fine
with me. I'm trying to summit the 20 highest peaks (with trails) in
AZ so if we do something around the Santa Catalinas my vote is for
something a little higher up with a day hike to the MT. Lemmon summit
and if we go to the Santa Ritas I'd like to hit Mt. Wrightson. But
if you guys aren't up for any of those trails then I'm fine kicking
back at a car campsite too and just enjoying the breeze.
