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.
I had a great time and enjoyed seeing everyone. Now we need to start planning the Cheaha fall hang!
I only took a few pictures and we didn't get any group shots :(
Eagle Creek Falls...
Yes it is.
Date set: Oct. 3-5
Planning thread below;
Count us in!! My son and I will be there.
Do we want to shoot for Oct. 3-5?
We could do that weekend also.
I mentioned my daughter's wedding which is on Oct. 25th. Well, I was just told that my son and I are being kicked out of the house the weekend before. Something about a big party and no one of the...
I received mine today and everything is perfect. All in working order and the correct quantity. Thanks Gunner!
I'm good for September or the first of October. My daughter is getting married the last weekend of October so I will be very busy around that time,.
Probably need to start a new post for this discussion.
I am open for any weekend in September.
Free Shipping :) Couldn't hurt to ask.
