    NC HF Gathering, evening of 12/10, 4p - 10p

    In this thread, we floated the idea of a local HFer gathering...

    So, I checked with Smiling Face, and she's up for it! Stop by our house on Friday evening, December 10, anytime after 4pm, everyone welcome to stay until 10pm. We'll grill on the deck, burn a Swedish candle, light up little wood stoves, and hang hammocks in the backyard. I'll erect the Tensegrity Hammock Stand (4" Alabama Bamboo won't break). It will be a great opportunity to share experiences and discuss ideas.

    Who's able to make it?

    Bring the kids and all your gear, there's lots of trees in the backyard!

    Bring food if you like... see suggestions in posts below.

    No alcohol

    I didn't know you lived in Jamestown, NC. I was over there last month to visit a friend.

    Who cares about showers, gourmet food, using flush toilets. Just keep on walking and being away from it all.

    There are times that the only way you can do something is to do it alone.

    Thanks MacEntyre & Smiling Face! I'll plan to be there.
    And I'll keep an eye on what will still be needed to bring.

    sorry i can't make it... sounds like a great time and it would have been the best possible way i could have "kicked off" my hanging adventures. hands on knowledge from the pros is priceless. defiantly my loss.

    Mac, i have kayaked and canoed on "your" lake since i was a kid. caught lots of crappie with my grandpa, not far from your back yard.

    I would love to join you, but it's too far to drive from the Outer Banks.

    Please let me know if you decide to do a winter hang.

    I'm going to try my hardest. Hopefully Tiv and I can make it. It's my bro's 30th birthday but you never know when he will want to just stay home and watch tv or come out and eat cake.
