Great report - I was up in the Ham lake area last fall. Looks like a nuclear bomb went off in places.
Off Topic, but Matahari and Kwapke, why don't you chime in on a location for a Midwest hang? Grizz and I have been talking about finding something in our general neck of the woods (MN, IL, WI, etc,) and haven't had anyone from that side of Wisconsin or from Minnesota chime in at all! I wish it could be the BWCA, but too far for most of the southern folks. Any ideas.
