Okey doke. I'll find you, Gary. :D
Love the time lapse, Jackleberry! Sweet!
Hey, all. It WAS a fantastic gathering. Super rad seeing old friends and meeting a few new! I hope we can do more hangs, soon.
Here's a gaggle of shots posted to Flickr....
Completely agree with JSH.
Totally worth it to try things out in the back yard prior to your first trip. Even if it's just setting it up and taking it down a few times, you'll work out so many...
Welcome to hammocking!!
The ENOs are a totally fine starting hammock option. Coupled with a Wally blue pad and you have an inexpensive base that you can then start to tweak and add to. The ENOs...
I'll bring a bunch of hammocks and what I can in terms of extra insulation. I can cover many new folks that want to try things out.
I'm shooting to be there tomorrow (Friday) around noon. ...
ChacMool - up where the cars hang, there is a lot of open sky, but you'll have to bring a stand for up there. Down in the forest, where we usually hang, is pretty thick, but there are some spots...
Ahh Dutch. I can't wait to see what mods you come up with.
Who's game for a DIY hydro-hammock competition?
We are SO looking forward to this and seeing everybuggy. It's been too long!
We are in!
SMJerry! I finally got some time to watch the video. Fantastic job, as usual. Love everything you captured and I'm SO BUMMED I missed the lip-sync show! LOL.
Although soggy (rather than the preferred snowy), it was great to get some great "hang-time" with my fellow Cascade Hangers.
Thanks, Jerry, for organizing. Thanks to everybuggy for the...
OregonBushcraft-- awesome!! Can't wait ta see those doors. I'm bringing mine untested, too. Nothing like a "field" test to prove out the design, right?
I'm bringing both pack and pulk. Hoping...
Got one set of winter tarp add-on doors finished. I rushed 'em a bit, so some fine-tuning and finish work will be in order when I get back, but it's a good start. Nice thing about the Kelty tarp is...
My Kelty 12 is one of my winter "go to" hammock tarps for all the reasons already stated (bullet proof, versatile, etc). I usually pulk it in winter so the little bit of extra weight is not an...
I can tell ya that cleanup of the bathroom was GREATLY appreciated. Nasty stuff. Bleck. I'll never forget it either.
Got the pole mod and sudo-pod done. I'm gonna be too toasty, but...
I utilized an Exped Dreamwalker as a half pod. It works better than I expected with some very basic mods. I'm in the process right now of morphing a cheap'o mummy bag into a pod. Will post pics when...
I got 'em a long time ago and don't remember where. I've seen different diameters online from Amazon, but I'm sure you can get cheaper from other places. I almost bought a cheap (like $20) kids dome...
Nice, Jerry. Can't wait to see the mods you've made. Rad.
I say, the more Dutch Ovens to play with, the happier we'll all be for it. HEE!
Got a pole mode nearly done on my bullet-proof Kelty12. I'm excited about this add. YIPPEE!! I'm also in the...
IRONFISH - I hope everything will be okay. We will miss you guys! Take care and know we're thinking about you.
Nice video! I love seeing what everyone brings and how they pack for these adventures. Pretty cool stuff!!
I'll be bringing a Dutch Oven for the Saturday Night "Togetherness"...
I'm starting to get SUPA EXCITED! I do enjoy the WINTER HANG and can't wait to see everybuggy!!
As Gary said, a few of us will be heading up Friday morning. I've been tinkering with my gear,...
Isn't it amazing how quickly things can turn? In the blink of an eye, we can go from 100% confident to complete vulnerability? I am glad you made it back out and thank you for sharing so we can all...
Favorite mod idea, Spaceman!!!
I'm lovin' this thread!! Great idea.
WHOOT!! That'll be a few more adds to the CHPP (Cascade Hangers Pulkin' Posse)!
Oh my. :D
Let's all pool our resources and start our own "hammocks only campgrounds (HOCs)!" We'll have our greatest minds (professor hammock, dutch, MacEntyre, etc) genetically modify the...
Those dates sound great, IndyJ. :p
We have been compiling our white elephants and are looking forward to the winter hang. I just wish we didn't have to wait SOOOO long. I have some pulkin' I...
That's awesome, Bigfoot!! Our HF vendors are so awesome.
You will always be Indiana Jerry to me.
What about IndyJ or something like that?
Wow, Bigfoot2!! That's awesome and way to go Jerry for the trade. Super!
Wow. That "Drift Creek at Night" shot is too cool fer school.
Great captures, as always, JB.
That's totally rad, Jackleberry! What a friggin' cool little rig you fashioned!
Okay. My report.....
Firstly, those of you who couldn't make it this year were missed.
Secondly, I'd like...
Floating sauna, with hammocks!!
DFab and I are IN! Looking forward to it.
We are game, of course! We love it out there!!
Sounds awesome. DFab and I will do all the donatey stuff tomorrow.
Thanks for organizing, as always. Looking forward to hanging with y'all and I'm happy to help pack stuff down and help out...
Yeah! What GaryR said!! It was supa'RAD you guys made it out!
Hopefully, we'll have more snow next time.
Yep. That's the most recent one. You can also look at the Suspension forum section.
Awesome TR, SP!! And, how incredible to be able to camp in your own back yard.
Three letters.... R... A.... D!!
Awesome report, TZ!!!
Kinda a dumb question, but what is bostick?
That's a great video! I'm diggin' the accompanying music.
Thanks for taking us along.
atrane21 -- awesome TR! Thanks for taking us along.
Looks like you have enough snow... in lieu of heavy gear, have you ever considered a pulk? You don't have to worry as much about weight when you...
You know it!! DFab and I just loved your video for the same reason... a different perspective. Totally great!!
To everybuggy who didn't make it this year -- you were all missed...
Great vid/TR, Jerry!! Love it.
We SO enjoyed getting to HANG OUTside with everybuggy! The snowy woods, though thinly blanketed, delivered another EPIC adventure. Frog lake was stunning, Mt...
See y'all soon!!
Update from GaryR:
Roads are clear all the way out.
There's plenty of snow on the road from the parking to the campground, so pulks will work fine.
We accidentally ended up with an extra...
In 24 hours, we'll be hangin' with many fine PNW folk!
Bummer bgb. Tyler will be missed.
Glad you are still coming, however.
