It will be a race to see who gets there first!
I think I have arrangements for you. PM sent.
There is a frog lake traffic/ road condition camera for those wanting to see snow where we are going.
I still cant wait. I have figured out what I am bringing to cook. Just have to arrange how I will spice it. Yea looks like someone should bring their largest tarp to create a dry hang out place. :(...
Two of the three (almost typed tree there, freudian slip there) confirmed off. Getting stoked for a real Winter Hang. Will respond later with communal dinner meal. May if funds allow go big this...
I'm down to go. Will request the time off. I've got to get out.
On our way.
bgraybackpacker and son
Yes we will leave you holding it.
Ok so I am planning on bringing my step son if he can get his but in gear and gather his stuff together he is going. I look forward to the trip and already have our white elephant presents in order....
All are welcome with or without hammocks, old or young, fun or boring, sharing or selfish, etc..... There are always people who are willing to let people try out their set-ups too as Gary said.
I've seen off road bikes on the lake, the trails for those things are real compact to a point. If you bring a quad you may find we might daisy chain our pulks to it. The campground itself may not be...
Planning on being there. Perhaps will even bring my son this year. I know he has been wanting to go.
Well this boy finally got a complete custom 30 degree quilt set in the titanium gray and my wife (or me when she isn't around) got a cuben fiber tarp and a 20 degree burrow! Thank you so much for...
Car camping along the coast. Get Forrest service maps and drive up one that accesses the coast you should be able to find places to make camp. As others have said on the coast is really hard to find...
Sad, Ed says to air drop the hammock.
All packed up and ready to go. White elephant gift ready to complete when I get there. Really, really excited for another great hang. Can't wait to hang out with everyone and talk about hammocks. See...
Hello All. My son Tyler discovered he has a commitment on Sunday so will not be coming to this hang. He is very disappointed that he is not going to be able to come. I will still be there however.
It is possible to live in cold weather. You also have to be a little crazy to do it. Not sure if anyone younger than Tyler or you are coming.
Tyler is coming and would love to have someone to hang out with and galavant around with. Really want you to come so I don't have to entertain him.
Ok my son is coming. Kayt has graciously said she can provide him with an uq however I need one more thing for his hanging. A tarp. If anyone has one he can borrow for the trip that would be great.
Yea what he said. Maybe just maybe Tyler my son will come too but the wife still has to ok it.
Getting ever so close. I can't wait. This if we keep the dates is going to be right in the middle of 12 days of classes followed by another 12 days of classes.
Mikayla got her UK Hammocks custom hammock. It looks nice and Mat was very nice to work with. Pics to come!
Are you going to wear shoes.
Ed (ripwaverly) and I may be in your neighborhood the weekend of the 13th. He has a warbonnet blackbird. Honestly if weight is any consideration at all dont go for any clarks they are way heavier...
A very much appreciated thank you to DaddyDaddy
im in, thanks
Thanks I will let you know. I think I might be getting everything for the hang prior. Might be looking for a spare tarp if anything for Tyler to hang under.
We are definitely bringing a sled!
Sounds like it will be me and my step son this time around. Hopefully we will have enough warmth stuff to make this happen.
FYI my daughters new hammock is on order. Its going to be dual layer, Electric Pink Exterior, black interior with some of the extra Expedition embellishments. It may make its way to the winter hang...
I slept in my fleece liner most of the time, with a very bad DIY under quilt. And in only my underwear. So it was nice and warm at night. A bit chilly in the morning but not enough to put my fleece...
Honestly with as many people as we have usually I prefer frog lake unless we want to dig a toilet ditch down into the snow and hard ground. Bathrooms are preferable with a large group to reduce the...
I hope to have my kids hanging too. Mikaylas hammock is on order with uk hammocks. It will prob make an appearance with me at the winter hang.
It's alright Ed you prob just looked like a stick in the mud.
Well it was a good one. My family and I arrived on Thursday at dusk. We didn't know what to expect and I honestly did not do much research about where the campsites where. We huffed in our stuff and...
Grrrrrrr! Running late to get out there early again!
I know I got a hold of Rachel, jealous much. Did they send you a design or anything for it? I could print something cool out.
I'm going up tomorrow afternoon I will let him know? Any idea if his plans?
Looks like the weather is going to be a bit crazy. Chance of thunder storms and precipitation.
do we have aroll call this year?
myself,wife and son and daughter are coming we will go up thursday.
i have used the new method on my diy hammock and love the fit. easily adjustable under quilt doesnt slide around. just a bit of fiddle factor. i love it.
I think there is a lurker who may have had one at the winter hang
I have personally hiked some of the wonderland and know for certain that the following sites will accommodate a hammock.
Mystic Camp (big trees anyone...
I'm in too. Please. :)
I would go but that is the weekend before final prep week. Going to be very busy.
Honestly almost anywhere on the coast is fantastic lots of day hiking opportunities out there. Cape Perpetua is a favorite of mine and it is about an hour and a half away from Corvallis. Oh and don't...
In oregon there are some places that get closed or limited entry due to overuse. Just do your research and you should be fine.
Well happy birthday and a very adventurous one at that. Some silicone caulking in little flattened beads on the reflectix should to the trick to keep it from sliding. You on the other hand are...
Heres to the weekend off due to a canceled wedding! Unless its yours and you werent the one to call it off.
Hopefully this year I can have you beat on the youngest person there so I can pick up the cool donations from those wonderful vendors and donate some much needed funds to that wonderful charitable...
