Welcome to the forum form Bama!
Welcome to the forum neighbor! The group hangs in Sipsey and Cheaha are great. Lots of good people and plenty of good food!
Wow, I hate to hear of any Scout getting injured at camp and I pray for a speedy recovery. Boy Scout camp is one of the most well supervised places that boys can run, play and have fun.
I placed my order on 6/2 @ 6:19am, received notice that my order shipped @ 1:23pm the same day and the package was in my mailbox 6/4. That, my friends, is great service!
I am going to be using...
I just ordered a box. We will see if I can gain enough skills to tackle a tarp in the future.... :mellow:
Thanks for the response.
I am looking for lightweight stuff sack material and was wondering if one of these $10 boxes would be a good starting point?
Also, is some material better for stuff sacks than others? What kind of...
I had a great time and really enjoyed the food and company. I really hate that we failed to get a group photo... well maybe next time.
He hates it too but it was his choice and I am proud of that. The Sipsey hangs are his favorites.
Camp at your own risk!:shades:
My boy was throwing his share of fuel on the fire..... kids these days... what are you going to do with them? Not like the days of past where we were perfect little angels! :lol:
I will bring a couple of cans of Black Beans. If you don't get any other volunteers, I can pick up more.
My son won't make it this time due to heavy school work. So hopefully that will keep the...
If I can get the planets to align I may be able to make it Fri/Sat. I have a commitment Sunday that I can't break so I will need to leave late Saturday afternoon.
Is this test post made of titanium??
Great report and I enjoyed meeting everyone again.
I found a good article on the cattle dipping: http://www.fs.usda.gov/Internet/FSE_DOCUMENTS/stelprdb5396091.pdf
Just chillin' and wishing ya'll were here.
We were looking forward to you bringing your butt to the hang! :lol: We have saved you a spot by the campfire.
Me and my 16 yr. old will be there sometime Friday afternoon.
Here is the latest map of trail closings.
Here is an update on the wildfire:
Quick update on the wildfire. The fire has jumped 224 and is now in the Clifty Creek watershed. We anticipate that the Forest Service is going to close ALL...
Unless something changes, it looks like we won't make it there until Saturday morning.
Nothing planned but that doesn't mean that we can't put something on the calendar.
Happy Belated Birthday! Hope you had a great day!
As usual, great video Jaxx. Thanks for taking us along!
My wife called me crazy when I started moving things around and attaching eye bolts to the floor joists just so I could hang my hammock in our basement. Great testing grounds!
That is awesome. Where was it?
Here is one that is not too far from WolfPen
We may not have anything to worry about. :thumbup:
I rained a little last April but we managed to stay dry. Not a great angle but you can see the tarps in the background.
No more than hanging from a tall tree during a lightning storm. I wouldn't want to do either.
I have a couple of large tarps that worked well during the last hang.
4 weeks and counting!
That date works for us.
Setting the date is the hardest thing about these hangs. Now let's get to planning.
Count me and my son in.
Funny thing, right now our Scout troop has a campout tentatively scheduled for Oct. 10 & 11 at Wolfpen. I will be watching this thread and can change our troop plans...
Great report! Thanks for taking us along and reminding me why I don't hike much in the summer..... Those slithery things can put a nasty end to a nice walk in the woods.
My son and I had a great time and really enjoyed the company and the hiking. Couldn't have asked for a better weekend!
This is a decent map of the Sipsey: sipseyonepagea.pdf
Looks great! This is on my list of projects to attempt. Which directions did you find the easiest to follow?
Welcome to the forums neighbor! We have a few group hangs a year, usually Sipsey or Cheaha. They are a great way to meet folks and see different setups.
Isn't there medicine to keep your tarps from getting worms?? :confused:
Thanks to everyone for the great stories, the laughs and all the great hiking/cooking/hammocking tips. It never fails that I learn something new at every group hang I attend. With that said, it is...
I really enjoyed meeting everyone and (even with the rainy night) it was a great outing. I hate that I missed the Riddle Creek hike. Got tied up saying goodbyes and we couldn't catch up with y'all....
Sitting by the campfire, enjoying the stories.
My son Payton will be there and he is 15.
I have a large tarp 10x20 (I think) that I will bring.
There is plenty of spots. I think we counted 18 hammocks at one of the hangs. My 15 year old will be glad to have some company that is closer to his age.
It is up to the group whether we do a...
:thumbup: These are awesome! :lol:
I predict that this will become a VERY LONG thread!
This is one of the better maps of Sipsey Wilderness Trails that I have found: sipseyonepagea.pdf
:thumbup: Got it on my calendar but I will won't know for sure until it gets closer to the date. :thumbup:
Fronkey is the only person that I know that was almost taken out by a tree.
