Just got back. Had a great time and so did my guests.
I just got back and I had a great time! I hope that everyone else did too. There are a lot of people to thank for contributing time, energy, knowledge, and gear for the raffle! The community spirit in this group is second to none. Thanks to Dutch for an awesome breakfast. Thanks to Iafte and Oh-No for grilling duties at the dinner. Thanks to Loser for the great concert. Thanks to the Jacks, MacEntyre, Darby from Tree to tree, Pappasmurf, Adia, and everyone else who contributed to the raffle. A special thanks to HappyCamper for making it all happen, it must be like herding cats!
The weather was beautiful. There were a TON of people there. I'll stop now. Gotta unpack.
Poppabear: I hope that all goes well for you and your brother!

Just got home. Great time as usual. Thanks to everyone who makes this happen!
Haven't been home long ourselves, but I for one sure had a nice time. The weather was perfect, the turnout great, the campfires fun, and the food superb. Thanks to everyone that made this weekend special.

Hey Pedro, a thank you too for your grilling expertise, and the footwear making workshop.
I had a great time as usual. You just can't find a better group of folks.
Thank you too all who donated, helped out, and just showed up with great
I was one of the last hangers to leave the campsite, (and talk about leave no trace) you would not have known one person spent the weekend there, let alone 45+ of us. Impressive.
Dancer and I are home, have cleaned up, had dinner and are now working on gear sorting and cleaning. We both had a great time once again. The people at these hangs make it very much worth the drive for both of us.
On a separate note, we scored a set of JRB mini-biners, a PapaSmorf bug net and a Speer 8x10 tarp. The raffle was a lot of fun, but raising money for HF was the best part of all. Many, many thanks to all who made this hang happen. See y'all again next time.

Sorry, I really don't want the wrath of someone named The Man, The Myth, and the Legend!! PM your address and I'll mail it to you.
Knotty, I didn't see my scissors on the van tire, so I assume you have them. Donate them to someone/school in need ... though it would make a good gag gift at the next hang.
Had a great time; more later.

Yea the trail mix was left over from my last hike (about a month ago).
No idea if it was stale or not. Enjoy the coffee on me!!
Anyways, just keep the bag, and maybe bring it with ya the next spring or fall hang.
Just a cheap Outdoor gear Wal-Mart sack, so nothing lost!!

I am the hawk and there's blood on my feathers, but time is still turning they soon will be dry;
All those who see me, and all who believe in me, share in the freedom I feel when I fly.”
Just got in the door! Fantastic hang, people, and weather. And thanks to Pedro for my new huaraches! Love 'em. And Maple and Kayak Karl for the gifts of wine and food you gave me. Big group makes for big fun! The potluck and raffle were OUTSTANDING. Much appreciation to everyone who contributed! We think at least 50 people showed and that's a conservative count. Gotta start unpacking the truck now. I really should just leave it all in there for the Gorge trip, but the smells wouldn't make a good impression.
OK people, start telling everyone what you won at the raffle. I got a set of Dutch Biners! Wooooooooooooo-who!

Really fun! Learned a lot about my BMBH from Pan and loved the Swedish Candle from Pedro, Mac and others Knotty, thanks for the stove tips and tricks . . Added the fire steel to the kit and it works great. Fun to make new friends that feel like old pals.
