I don't own a kayak but would like to use one that weekend. :) Just tell me who to pay and where to show up.
Extended and Saco are good with me.
So was the campfire question, but it's nice to touch on the essentials of hangs now and then. Just so we don't forget the important things, dontcha kno?
Yeah but... will there be bacon?
My problem is that I am only available Saturday, Sunday, Monday June 6-8. I hope we can work something out so I can join the party anyway, because last year was an absolute blast. ...
Whenever we don't get rained on too much, we eat dinner in comfort!
To be honest, sometimes it's the discomfort that makes situations memorable. Perhaps all of us trying to stuff into the winter...
My daughter is sick, I won't be there today. I will make it in tomorrow morning.
I'm bringing some chikin (eat mor chikin!) and some bell peppers and onion. And a cast iron pan. That should cover 1-1/2 person.
I also have instant oatmeal, in case other people eat all my...
I still have 1.
Don't expect it to change any time soon either.
Will there be a campfire?
Liar liar pants soaked with ice cold water.
The spread sheet takes care of Saturday, not Friday. Chris183 and Ratdog were addressing that hiatus, to prevent mass starvation on Friday evening.
I'm very worried about this trip after browsing through this thread.
My hammock is only a single layer, rated to maybe 280 lbs or so.
It looks like that's not gonna be enough...
You remember the lesson well, young grasshopper.
And I still eat wasa crackers with spicy tuna.
I can't take off on Friday. I can probably get to camp on Friday early evening and would love to...
That was another boatload of fun!
Great people (which makes great hangs), great food (which makes greater hangs) and an awesome fire on Saturday (thank you fireboy).
For the next one I vote for...
Some other obligation just got canceled, so now I get to go hang with my favorite pineys.
I'll see you guys this weekend!
Hmmmyeah, editing the sign up sheet on my phone ain't workin, so I'll...
Wait, didn't you used to get 51 mpg?
Like you and I already talked about Raiff, I had the same thing. No "inside snow" on that second night. Very nice.
Hot dam, this stuff will be so worth what Dutch is going to ask for it!
Yup, the stuff at NEHHA was 3rd gen.
Gotta question about it:
I used one of Dutch's samples the second night (the -5 degree F night) but even in just a T-shirt I was still too warm.
How do I solve this? Dutch?
Great hang, thanks organizers and participants!
There was much fun and food to be had. The Swedish Gas-Fireplace Log was entertaining, as was the time with all the people around the fire.
In for the wood.
Thanks for arranging this and picking it up, Nighthauk.
Awesome, thanks for the effort.
When we have a price we can use the number of people in the sign up sheet to then guesstimate a suggested per person donation for the firewood.
How much does it cost to have a face cord (1/3 cord) of hardwood delivered? Could we all just chip in, send money to nighthauk by PayPal beforehand, and order wood?
In my uneducated opinion that...
I have a 0 degree UQ and a 20 degree top quilt. IF I wake up due to cold, it is because of a cold back, never on top.
Those shenanigans... is that a promise?
Then I'm in.
Tactical long johns is what they are called? Mmmmokay, I will have my wife update her lingo.
Thanks for all the suggestions.
I believe that a compression sack or compactor bag acting as compression sack is the best solution for me.
To have quicker and easier setup and take-down I would like a single stuff sack for my hammock and underquilt.
I'm as good with a sewing machine as I am at underwater pole vaulting, so I will have...
Most people think of an uninsulated 8 foot gathered end backyard hammock, or a tippy knotted/woven hammock with a spreader bar.
I've gotten most of the remarks quoted in the thread so far: You'll...
If/when I'm concerned with slippage, I would add a half-hitch behind the hook. I think that eliminates any chance of it slipping, even without "load" in the hammock.
Ya know what, I think for me it is the lying on my back.
In a bed I am a side sleeper, in a hammock I sleep on my back.
Several times I have noticed that when I wake up in my bed in the...
A name for the property will have to emerge, you guys will think of something, I'm sure.
The puppy? Steven with a "ph" of course!!
...As long as there is a fire. My waterproof boots ain't waterproof anymore it seems and I need to dry out the boots and thaw my toes.
At the moment I'm roughing it in a cute little bakery having...
Hah! That's only for you poor sods who live close by. I'm leaving in half an hour to start my adventure!
Oh yes! I need sharpening of 3 knives as well as lessons in it, so I can do it myself the next time.
And I will do my best as smoke magnet.
I can't picture a situation where I need to be Hat...
In! for the Cindy Sinnet. Bringing paracord.
Skypainter and Joshuatrees, I'm sorry you won't be able to come. Good luck Chaaaz with the bitchy stitchy complications, and good on you for a legitimate eye patch.
I'm very excited about this...
Oh well, an extra reason to go to the MA winter hang.
Bummer dude. Hope to see you at another event then.
Did you ride your Feejer last year? How did it do those last miles?
Great photos, Uphill. Who is that handsome guy in the first one? Nice hat too.
Big thanks to Dutch and all the others for organizing another great event, and to the whole family Dutch for again...
A good bunch of people at the MAHHA hang invited me to come to this hang. It sounds like a great place to be with great people, but I already planned to go to the Great Pumpkin Hang in New...
That was the truth, almost the WHOLE truth, and nothing but the truth.
Yes please. That would be great to try.
I ain't surprised. Nicely done. :)
Yersh!! What the survival bracelet/belt should be made with, in stead of the cobra stitch.
Please teach us...
Good luck with the surgery Sky Painter. Heal up quickly and we will see you at another hang soon. You will be missed in the meantime.
Thanks Dutch. Syb offered to bring an extra UQ and tarp, which I gladly accepted.
Have fun out West.
I have a huge favor to ask: Could I borrow an UQ and a tarp from someone(s)?
BOTH my sons want to come to this hang, so now I'm suddenly confronted with an equipment shortage.
Yeah, I'll probably be at this great hang too.
I am working really hard on clearing time so I can make it to this hang. Oh I'm so in the mood for this one!
Do I need to put knobbies on my motorcycle, or will there be no snow at that time of...
