Thank you, LD Cakes!
The spreadsheet did not want to cooperate with my phone, but I am bringing potato salad. (And Highland beer to share)
The ankle I broke in February has been very uncooperative about healing, but I'm doing this anyway! My plan is to hike in Thursday evening, possible around 7:30 or 8 pm. If I'm a lump on the trail...
If a bear shows up with a crowd this big, we'll need a rifle cuz it would be a CRAZY bear. Mice and possums are more likely to sneak some of your stuff, but I don't believe they have even been a...
Outstanding! That does not look like a "my first DIY" hammock at all. Very pro and I, too, like your choice of contrasting colors.
^ that was supposed to say thanks for bringing the route to life and making it almost impossible to get lost. Way to go Loki and Scrambles :)
Never hiked to the enchanted forest ??
Wondering what it's like? How to get there?
As promised...here's the video...
Special thanks to Scrambles for hiking along with us.
You brought the route...
Grab some buns!!
Hope you and dad spend some quality time together!
Questions for hiking buddies that use trekking poles...what kind do you like and why? I think I need some for this trip and probably for hiking...
That was supposed to say
You are the host with the most! Thanks and see you Thursday :)
Hey everyone, after talking with Loki and CB, we thought it would be a good idea to flag the trail up there.
There's quite a few new folks coming, and we don't want anyone getting lost. I'll start...
So sorry, Sluggie! I've had poison ivy a number of times that was so bad it needed medical attention and being in a cool place, with access to a cool shower made a difference. I wanted to talk to you...
I was just reviewing the sign up sheet for Saturday food.
Tacoma96...I saw you're signed up to bring chili. How many wife brains does your chili recipe call for?
Me, too, brother. Me, too
My dearest friends and porters...I have secured Friday off work and plan to arrive on Thursday after work. I'm so psyched! I'll call you strong-backed fellers when I know better what my arrival time...
I'm just sad and trying to muster courage as I know my dear friend would. I'll do my best to be there and not inconveniencene anyone else.
Pickled eggs and fogged canaries, the official menu of the 6th Annual John Rock Hang!
When don't you play that game, dear? When you sleep? bwahahah
That was courteous of you, kurteous :)
I hope I don't get caught with chili all over my face on video again. But if that's what it takes...I'm game!
Superb recon mission, boys! I love it when the trail goes from strenuously technical to stoopid steep! Thanks!
I have started walking again :)
It feels weird and probably looks weirder, but I know my forum friends won't laugh (too hard) if I come hobbling in to the enchanted forest. I am psyched! And...
Nature's refrigerator :)
Just remember to consume everything you chill in it!
Running Feather, you need to come get me and let me chill on the porch with you! It would be outside time than I've had in 7 weeks!
There is time to get better and stronger, but right now I feel like I need one of these:106362
[QUOTE=Running Feather;1433917]Pretty cool that you were instantly selected as a fair and impartial judge
A fair and impartial judge...what other kinds of contests would be entertaining out in the...
Primer: check. Charge: check. What is to used to detonate this unholy blast? 12 ounces of ale?
Bump on the sign up sheet, please
Best directions EVER. See you and Lump and the babies there! I'll probably leave my babies at home.
i would totally say yes if you offered me a seat!
yippeee! I will have to see what kind of weekend rotation we're on and see if Oscar wants to come. He has lots of sports stuff on Saturdays lately.
Oscar is really being cool. He is walking the dog, fetching me water, not farting in my face. Sweet as he could be! I am binge watching Netflix and studying some for my new job. That I worked at for...
Just be gentle, HB!
Could your chuckwagon be borrowed for use as an invalid wagon? lol, I'm kidding!
That picture is the best! And was my first thought when I read Hot Lips question about the cart.
Hot Lips, wear shoes you can get wet and don't put more in one trip than you can hoist and carry...
I think I am going to squeak in on Saturday night! I have a new 2nd job that I will be starting that morning, but I should be done in time to get to Hot Springs for the campfire and hot dogs. I am...
Wow! Those are really nice portraits! Thanks for taking them! Annie is so cute chewing on her pine cone :)

Count me in on the fun! I'll be solo, so I hope someone knows how to juggle :)
I really want to have a look at Cedar Rock Falls and the summit of John's Rock this year!
Well done! If you have photos, you have an audience here!
I've always wanted to camp at Roan Mtn. Fellow hammockers would be great!
I like that a lot! Get ready to be copied :)
Wonderful! Your seams are pro quality neat :) I like the doming effect of the poles, but I wouldn't want to backpack them. Great job!
I've seen some awesome ones made with plastic sheeting from the hardware store, like for painting drop cloth or vapor barrier. There were some good photos on a DIY thread of a tarp made from 2 shower...
I love having an umbrella on the trail. I would love to upgrade my little $6 Wal-mart umbrella for a Go Lite Chrome Dome, but until then...I'll keep on trucking. In the shade, and out of the rain.
