    Thanks to everyone for a needed awesome weekend. It was nice to see some faces i recognized from last year and to meet some new faces. I want to thank specifically you folks that put this on for all of us newbies. I was able to convince my misses, Amanda, and my buddy JB to brave the arctic cold front and both had great time.

    I personally want to thank the venders- Dutch, RBTR, Batchstovez, and who ever provided Ed Speers book, and the Battery Backup. With out you, my raffle night would have turned out different.

    Thanks again.

    This was my first HangCon and I was very impressed with the community feeling and effort that made this a class act. I'd like to say thank you to Timberr and Gumbo and everyone else that made it a success. Special thanks to all the venders that contributed to the raffle that raised money for a worthy cause. A personal thanks to Sierra Madre for the Solo hammock I won in the raffle. My son and I are already talking about going back next year.

    It was a great weekend, especially since this Florida boy got to test some winter gear, something I don't get to do very often. My family was a little suprised when I came home with a new canoe. Thanks and I'll put it to good use when island camping next month.
