It was a balmy 29 degrees when I arrived to my first group hang and my first winter hang, and my first time using my new DIY Winter Dream tarp. We had a great meal and chat around the fire before retiring to sleep in the piney woods with a low around 16 degrees and a good stiff wind all night.
It was a great time meeting Dutch, JerzyBears, GLP, Blackfoot, G Hawk, Uncle Ray Ray, and the late arrival and early departing one (I forgot the name).
We grilled some meat over the infamous Tarp Fly grill.
The wood was a little damp, so we also smoked the meat and ourselves.
That's about as much detail as I can go into due to the "what happens at 501 stays at 501" rule.
Thanks everyone for a nice night. My new tarp at the site.
