    Great trip. Was good to see old friends and make new ones. Browning Hill was spectacular and restorative. I hope everyone gets home safely with the same good feelings. ...

    Cool! I hope you come down and use it this year, Randy! It would be good to see you again. I can't wait to re-live that first hoosier hang.

    Here is a re-post from 5 years ago, for those that like topo maps and GPS coordinates. This will get you to both Brown Hollow and Browning Hill.

    The trails are marked in red. I made a mistake the...

    Good luck, Doctari! I'll be rooting for you to finish this one!

    I'm working on the whoopies, will let you know when they are ready.

    Plenty of room in Brown Hollow for tents, but it does feel more "cozy" than CV2. Weather permitting, I'd still like to move to Browning Hill for the second night, like we did at the very first...

    Another idea is that you can always take drop cloth or poly tarp material and make a tarp very cheaply. You can make it into the shape and size you're thinking of, and try it out. It won't last long,...

    You can get by with something very small, but there will be definite trade-offs. Think carefully, and practice close to home.

    I've been hanging for a number of years, with a variety of trips. I don't worry about my suspension failing nearly as much as I worry about FORGETTING my suspension. This, I've actually done a few...

    Yep. If they had told you anything that person and the hospital would each have been liable for fines to 100K.

    Same thing happened last year to Trail Medic. Good thing he has such a hard head, he might have been hurt worse!

    I got my oxygen today! Very happy. I'm sitting in front of the fire watching Carl and the Maple King.

    Anyone who is still heading down there should allow extra time. All highways in the area, except for right around Knoxville, are orange or red on Google, meaning slow.

    What about the fire wood and privy? That's always paid for by the raffle. I can send some money to help cover the cost--would have...

    Hey, Roche! Been a while. Yeah, whether it's the Ash borer or pine beetle, lots of bad stuff can be transported. Anyone remember Dutch elm disease?

    Good idea. I've heard that it's actually illegal to transport firewood across state lines. Not sure about that, though. Regardless, it's always best to get firewood locally due to pests. Anyway,...

    It kills me to write this, but I don't think there's any way I'm going to be able to come. The headaches are too bad, and the insurance doesn't want to cover the meds. I'm still fighting with them,...

    Still not sure, headaches still a problem. If I do go, it will probably be just me. I will probably arrive Thursday but will probably not do the overnight. Sure would like to see you guys again.

    In the past, the hands were supposed to be on the weekends closest to tax day, April 15th, and Halloween. However, the actual dates have varied.

    I got off a little early today, and if it wasn't for the long drive, I'd be heading out there right now. I really need a nice relaxing weekend in the woods with some good friends.

    Geez--that's pretty serious, Joe. You take care of yourself. I'm sure you will feel better after the procedure. We will be thinking of you.

    Weather is looking GREAT for this week! High 60's to the 40's and mostly sun, little to no chance of rain. I'll be there as early as Thursday, depending on some things.

    Little to no reception with sprint. I think some with Verizon may have found some coverage. Not difficult at all to find. You won't need a quad unless you are planning to bush whack.

    I'm definitely thinking about trying to make it to this hang. It's a long drive from Cincinnati, though. I need to look into a car pool and to see if i can get the required amount of time off.
