    As long as there are several of our group at the demo to answer questions from visitors, we can do a little strolling.

    It's good to have as much variation in hammock gear as possible.
    It would be good if some of the hammocks have a tarp over them to show how we stay dry.

    I can bring an extra rig if you need it. Kammock hammock and DIY tarp. I might not be there to demonstrate but you guys will know how to se it up. Marlin straps and Dutch hook and tarp fly and prussics for the tarp. The hammock is orange so I will bring the orange tarp unless you want red.

    Thanks Pete.
    I think either color tarp would be outstanding!

    Looking forward to seeing all of you there!
    Another fine weekend ahead!

    And Thanks WV. I missed that.
    I still don't know much about the spread sheets. I just copy the link (address?), past it in the new thread and remove the names that were there.
    One thing I've noticed though, that, unfortunately means we can't go back and see last years.
    I gotta learn more about spread sheets.

    WV, seeing you will be great!

    Slowhike brings us all
    Another fine year
    Livin' in the piney
    With all our hammock gear.

    Hike Thomas Knob's beauty
    Or sit and relax.
    Wilburn Ridge is the high life
    Bring your new pack.

    Roll in your Corolla
    Put hay in the back
    A pony will fit there
    Hickery knows that!

    All our mountain brothers
    And some sisters, too
    Love coming to this place
    With all the fall hue.

    Come on Phantom Grappler
    Load up the truck,
    Rockdawg, your vittles
    Always fill us right up.

    All of these years
    Of memories and fun
    I can't wait to see y'all
    4 days in the sun!
