FloydFest 11, 2012
Just back from a terrific weekend of music and hanging outside of Floyd, VA. It was my very first FloydFest and it was a dandy. It was great to see dozens and dozens of other hangers out there in the woods with me, despite the grossly improper hangs of their ENOs. Several of my neighbors admired the BB and wanted to know where I got it, how I hung the tarp, what those strange looking buckles (Dutch clips!) were, etc. Friday saw several rain showers and I took in a few wet campers under my BMJ Spinn (Shug's old one!). Trying to explain who and what a Shug is to these folks was a trip. Shug- if you're listening: hope to see you onstage at FloydFest next year!
Oh, and add another hammock convert, too; my buddy took a nap in my backup Traveler and ended up spending the rest of the weekend sleeping in it!
All in all, a great hang in a great venue.
“Simplicity in all things is the secret of the wilderness and one of its most valuable lessons. I think the matter of simplicity goes further than just food, equipment, and unnecessary gadgets; it goes into the matter of thoughts and objectives as well. When in the wilds, we must not carry our problems with us or the joy is lost.” -Sigurd Olson
