    Some pics from the Heart of Dixie Hang

    Hey everyone,

    I just got in from the Heart of Dixie Hang and wanted to post a few pics. We had about 8-9 people there last night. I was the last to arrive and couldn't manage to find the group so I set off my car alarm to get their attention. Yeah I felt like a goob lol......

    Came in setup and sat around the fire for a while. Got up this morning and looked at everyones gear plus alot of folks were swapping various stories of the outdoors. My phone had very scattered service but I received an email from my wife saying that there was a storm warning for weather to drop into the teens, 25-40 mph winds, wind chills of -5* to 5*. I was 250 miles from home so decided to head out and come on home. I hated to leave early but I didn't want to risk driving home tomorrow with any bad roads.

    Here are a few pics:

    This morning everyone eating around the fire ring:







    Bama was making a fashion statement



    My new setup. WBBB, JRB Mt Washington 4, JRB High Sierra Sniveler, WB Big Mambajamba Spin tarp



    I think this was Bama's setup



    I didn't get a chance to discuss this setup but I believe it was mostly self made gear. It was a pretty cool setup



    The first time I got to see one of the Kelty tarps in action



    Studying a couple of packs since I have been in the market.



    Buffalo Skippers dutch over. He made some good grub for everyone for breakfast.





    This was Buffalo Skippers tarp. I don't remember the name of the company making them but it had a pretty neat shape to it.





    I had a great time and look forward to meeting up with more in the future. I sure hope the weather doesn't get too bad for them tonight and the weather forecast was a little overstated.

    That being the heart of Dixie was that the fabled Livermush and grits everyone was eating?

    Thanks for the pictures. Looks like everyone is having fun. Anytime you can hang with fellow hangers and swap stories. Is a good time in my book.

    I'm over in the west side of the state and a nasty storm started moving through here eastward about two hours ago. I just looked at the radar and it is just now moving in on them. Sure hope they are all alright. It will be a surely be a good test of their set ups. Luckily they are close to their cars.

    I believe what you are referring to is a lid lifter for the Dutch Oven (DO). I need me one of those DO lid lifters. Looks to be a diy lid lifter.

    The opinions expressed by this user are not those of a competent individual. If they were that would mean I know what I am talking about.

    Most places that sell dutch oven supplies will have the lid lifters, but that one looks really heavy duty. You may be right about it being DIY. They work great and keep your hands away from the heat.
    Looks like everybody had a great time, and ate some yummy DO vittles.

    D.O. lid lifter

    Some years ago, I ran into a guy showing off a lid lifter like this. I knew a guy who had a welding business, and he did this one for me as a favor.

    This one is similar from Amazon for $15.

    The real advantage is that since it locks the lid with the grip, you can do anything you like with the lid--it doesn't just hang from a hook.

    I love his one!
