    We'll miss seeing you, Moonbear.

    Brilliant. Yet again. I really need to make it to a Grayson Highlands hang to see your work.

    I'm happy to help where I can. The double layer helps prevent stress on the seams and increase longevity. I use different weights so they stretch at different ratios. A bridge is a little easier, and...

    It will likely just be me, but I have two others interested.

    I am happy to help if I can. I hiked that section about a year ago, but it was very well cut out. Since it is later in the summer, I'd expect some growth to have started along some of the more open...

    A head count would be good. I need to know how much chili to haul in.

    Nice. I like that you can take it all apart. The only issue I see is water seepage, which has been addressed, it seems, by now. Also, I do like setting up my tarp or sock a bit tight so that it...

    Hike until dusk, set up, cook and eat. Then it is time for bed. I hike until about 8pm or 9pm most trips I'm solo on depending on the time of year. As always, HYOH.
