The "First Yooper northern canoe and hammock hang" was a success! In attendance were...
Wanderlust62 and I drove up Thursday night after work and found an open site in the main campground to hang for the night. This was the maiden voyage of my new WBBB 1.1dbl, and it worked really well, though I had to play with the sag a bit as the weekend went on to get that sweet spot. After finding out that Wanderlust62 has a tendency to snore a bit (hello, understatement) I discovered that I can take my whole rig off a set of trees and relocate it intact to another set of trees 50 yards away in under 3 minutes in the dark. Otherwise it was a beautiful night, I didn't even bother to deploy my tarp.
We headed down to the boat launch bright and early Friday morning and set off across Clark Lake, then portaged across to Loon Lake and paddled down to the Osprey 2 site. We ran into Lonetracker there and set up camp. Canoeski showed up later in the afternoon.
The whole trip was BEAUTIFUL. Fall colors were pretty sweet and the leaves were falling like crazy. Temps ranged between mid 40's F at night and mid 70's F during the day. If anything, I was wishing for weather that was 10-15 degrees cooler overall.
Lonetracker and Canoeski introduced Wanderlust62 and myself to Chaga (?) tea, which was some really good stuff!
I'm sure there'll be more to come in this thread as the other guys chime in. I'll also put up more pics soon and possibly a youtube vid, but for now here are a few pics.
