The weather finally decided to cooperated ( it cooled off some and no rain) so I decided to head out to the Neusiok Trail for a quick overnight after I got off work.
My youngest son went with me for his first overnight in a hammock. We found a place just a few feet from the river and set up amongst the bald cypress trees. It was getting dark when we got there so I set up the hammocks best I could and we climbed in for the night. Dutch clips make for a fast set up. The hang of the hammocks could have been better but we did ok.
We lucked out in that there were no bugs out and there was a breeze. As we had clear skies and no rain predicted we did not set up tarps although we took them just in case. When the stars came out I had a perfect view of the big dipper framed by two trees. Watched the stars until I fell asleep. With the wind it got a little cool about 4am so I pulled my trusty poncho liner around me and went back to sleep.
Got up about 6am, took some pictures and came home.
