Oh, it's Nicky's birthday weekend too. She didn't want me to say anything....too bad for her ;)

Stargaze
03-28-2013, 22:36
I'm pretty sure my daughter won't go. She's not a fan of sleeping outside. I can always strap one of the boys to the front bumper, with a helmet and goggles(safety first), to make room for it.

Nighthauk
03-29-2013, 07:34
Stargaze sounds good to me. Strap a go pro on him so we can watch. Lol

Old soldier are you asking us to embarrass her by singing happy birthday? We can do it.

Interested, may bring Henry along as well.

Wondering if this will be a hike-in or drive-in hang.

McRat this will be a car camping event. We will be able to get really close to location to bring in all the heavy stuff.
Henry is more than welcome to come along. I know my three boys will be coming. Ages 15, 13 and 8. And Stargaze and Coffee Bean will have their son as well.

Hey guys the location has been confirmed. For lack of other scoped out places we are going back to the Chesterfield Scout camp in chesterfield Ma. This is the same location as the winter NEHHA hang. I will be scoping out other locations for later dates so that we will not have to have back to back repeats. As we get closer I will post up the coordinates again for those that haven't been there before. This time we have the WHOLE side of the camp. There is a wedding happening on the other side of the lake so that side is off limits. Please check the sign up sheet in the first post to put your self on the list.


Oh Yeah this is also my 1,000th post Whooooo Buddy. Lol.

What type(s) of items will be acceptable for the raffle?

SkyPainter
03-31-2013, 19:33
I should have two more hangers in June - my youngest daughter (20) , trail name "Ewok", and her college roommate. They plan to be groundlings, but I am bringing an extra WBBB in case, for conversion purposes.

This should be epic!

I was planning an A.T Hike in June, but a conflict arose for the week I was planning (Go Figure :cursing: ). So I'll plan on attending the Hang instead. My son won't be able to attend, do to school and Lecrosse. I see Bill is bringing his Coleman Stove, I can supply a second if needed.

We are glad to have you. Since we are car camping, you might want to bring the stove just in case. I am sure many others, myself included, will have stoves to use and share. I expect we will eat very well....as long as Skypainter doesn't grace us with another specialty!!:rolleyes:

Now to get the 7th off from the employer :D I'm planning on bringing Jambalaya, just so you understand I like my Jambalaya like I like my Chili. So with that said. Does anyone object to spicy food? I'm talking Jolokia Hot aka the Ghost Pepper.

===> Actually, bear meat is delicious! Since most of the fat on a bear is up near the skin, the meat has little marbling, and it is generally best braised (cooked in liquids). I also like to brine most wild game if I can, to help soften the connective tissue, as well as remove some of the perceived 'gamey' taste.

Several rinses in cold salted water, lightly floured and seared in a pan to produce some fond for a sauce, then cooked in a nice wine sauce with several aromatics in a low-med oven produces meat that will melt in your mouth!

I hope that folks treat their clothing, hammocks, packs, and tarps with Permethrin prior to coming, or spray everything with Permethrin spray at the hang! Ticks, Chiggers, spiders, ants, flies, and other annoying insects will croak if they land on it!

I sprayed a small blanket I was using to step on from the hammock with Permethrin, and slathered myself in Deet at a deep woods stealth hang last summer. They did the job. When I went to unfold the blanket swatch, there had to be over a dozen dead ticks in its folds!

Take bug precautions, folks! And hopefully the Deer Flies and Black Flies will be diminished by then.

If I can get away from work I'll stop up for some shenanigans over the weekend. If not I'll see everyone at the next hang.

Fibby from a previous post regarding the pups:


Okay guys I just ask the boys scouts council that we are renting the site from about dogs. It is my apology that I didn't ask before hand but because of previous issues they are NOT allowing dogs to be on the property. I hope this does not Inconvenience or prevent you from coming. I know how I am with my pup so this also puts me out a little bit.

As to those who just stated that they are coming. I am really excite to see this become as popular as it is becoming. I look forward to hanging.

I'm working on it. I'm on call all weekend but if I have phone service and can get Internet service somewhere close I'll be able to stop up. Maybe even stay one night if I'm really lucky.

No bring a *gulp* tent. Though if you can't find a spare hammock to use we are all going to pack up and go home. We have FAILED YOU. Lol. Or you can use one of the four lean-to's.

Amazingly enough, I just made 2 UCR's tonight! May have enough amsteel to make another AND the nacrabiners I was planning on.

On another note.....my friend/coworker will be able to go so if she likes the HH, there may be a purchase in your future. (If you're still selling.)
