    If the job comes through that I am after I may try to make it up the Gorge for the week. If so, I'll have to find a good campground to set up my 5th Wheel for my wife to stay in. I'll keep up with this post and chime back in when I have a better idea if I can make it. I'd love to meet a bunch of you guys. My wife is OK with this even though she thinks I'm crazy to go camping with people I've met online.

    I like the silliness, but it needs to stay in the off-topic thread please.

    Family friendly trip?

    Hey guys. I am interested in coming to the weekend portion of the hang. I love the gorge and my family usually camps right where you are planning to have the base camp! My wife and son would want to come as well :-) I assume that this would be a family friendly hangout?

    All kidding aside ... let me know if you want me to add you to the roll call ... dates and if YES or MAYBE. Need your crew's names too.

    Superb! That is a nice gesture but I can't promise my wife or son will adhere to the wind-breaking embargo

    If we can come at all, we would only be able to make the weekend portion, being Friday night through Sunday. I can't say definitively yet, but I will PM you with details once I know for sure if we can make it!

    I hope to use this trip to acquire some new hammocks in order to get the whole fam off the ground! Keep your fingers crossed for me WBBB for me please!

    I've never been to an Hf gathering that wasn't family friendly. They're always fun events. FWIW, I'll do better about watching my language at the MAHAA this year.
