Steg made it much more enjoyable when he found the "bushwhack" back to the cars...saved about 400 yards worth of bootsucking mud.
Looks like the folding saw, while not the lightest piece of equipment, is gonna be a must-have item. The extra pound or so (IIRC, the packaging CLAIMED 14 oz) was definitely worth it in the end.
We'll have to try to get a group hang going at Dolly Sods. It's generally a little cooler, given the elevation, but the flies can be menacing if there's no breeze. Plenty of great water though.

Thanks to everyone for coming out. I had a great time hanging out with everyone and meeting new hangers. I'm happy you made it out Big Papi and brought along yeti. It was great seeing everyones gear and the flock of blackbirds, 7 strong! Haha.
Monster truck, as I said, I called adam right when I got home, haha. I just had to hear it firectly from him, haha.
As for the rest, I dunno what to tell ya.
This is the "Yetti" that they are referring to. We arrived in camp hot, sweaty, thirty, and pretty darned muddy. It was her first walk in th woods and I will say she did great. Maybe a future regular at Ohio hangs.
Glad to see all of youns Guys ( Pennsylvania accent) had a great time in Ohio.
I know that Chad ( AKA two cups or theXuprising) is a great hiker and a good man to hang with.
I'm going to have to make it to an Ohio Hang someday!!

"I am the eagle, I live in high country, in rocky cathedrals that reach to the sky;
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.”
Sigh! Wish I could have gone, had too many "Honeydo"s" on my list. Got a few done.
When you have a backpack on, no matter where you are, you’re home.
