    ViDEO: Yates Place Hang in North Carolina

    Yates was the place.
    Met Hickery in the Linville Gorge and we spent a day and a half in the constant rain. Thankee to Jen and Cooldays for the delectable pizza delivered to our camp at night in the rain!
    In the morn' we packed and headed to the Yates Hang. Got there early...EARLY!!!!

    Phantom Grappler sure threw a wonderful and welcoming hang. Kudos to you PG.
    Met so many of our hammock tribe. Saw some old friends and made many new ones.
    I am home in Minnesota now and still dreaming of all the Southern hospitality and food.
    Chicken and dumplins, pork cutlets, fried apple pies, sweet tea, Cheerwine, livermush, Carolina hot dogs, chicken, banana pudding and BBQ and more BBQ.
    Stopped at Lexington #1 on the way home and got more BBQ to tote home.

    I ran my gob so much I really did not film a lot. At Hangs, one just sorta wants to enjoy the brotherhood and sisterhood.
    All the kids were really polite and easy to be around. They truly seemed to want to be there.
    Even the hounds were nice.

    Had a Maple King sighting~~~~~ He was in rare form.

    Truly truly had a fantastic time.
    But of course sleeping in a hammock sure helps.

    Even got a walk in the woods post-hang with some new and old friends. That video is forthcoming.

    Whoooooo Buddy)))))

    Gonna watch the video now, but it sure was great to meet you and find that you are just as great in person as you are on camera! Really had a great time at yates, and cant wait to go back!!!! Glad you got to come down, you will have to visit in Kentucky one of these days, or come to a Palmetto state hang! Hope to cross paths again!

    It was fun to meet and hang around with you, too, Buddy.
    Always nice to find another part-Northerner who spends most of the year deprived of The Holy Grub [barbecue NC style!]
    Glad you hit some up to carry home.
    BTW~ your shortbread was DeLish!

    I hope we will have a chance to meet again somewhere along the trail.
    Keep it secure for us up in Sector Seven! ...I'm always a bit worried about those shifty lil' ol' Canadians

    Guy walks by table and sees camera. Takes camera home. Curiously puts card in computer. Clicks a few times and exclaims "IT'S SHUG!!!!"

    Contacts Shug via youtube and ships it back.

    It was great seeing the Hickery brothers in person. Sharing stories by the campfire and eating some southern grub. Great job capturing the feel of the hang in the video. Phantom Grappler throws one heck of a fun hang.
