    If you think we'll find trees for everyone to hang from every night, then I won't bring my Z-Lite pad for ground sleeping.

    It's too dangerous to camp above treeline (Lightning) we will always have trees to hang in maybe too many trees, haha

    Im really not liking work now. I get to work tomorrow too (unlike what was on the schedule). Whats funny is I have everything packed up and ready to go. I think I even managed to get slightly below 25lbs. I told Iz and she just looked at me. But I think she gets that we wont be out all weekend. I hope we can start planning a fall or winter hike. Like I said, I WILL be at that one. I want to try to make it down tomorrow. Depends when I get off. If I dont, you guys have fun and post all the pictures to make me even more jealous

    Google claims 4 hours 9 minutes driving time for me, so I'm planning on hitting the trail about 7 as I have to make a quick supply stop in Rifle, and there will undoubtedly be delays through Glenwood Canyon. Hope to reach the campground close to noon. Can't wait to meet all of you.

    Just getting dry ice to keep a little food cold and we will be on our way. Our trip estimate is 2hr and 30min. :Woot:

    Hey all, just a quick update. Me and the wife to be got there about midnight ( we got lost a few times). Everyone else was there already set up. They took off with only the slightest of problems. One of them lost a buckle and noticed as he was picking us pack up to take off.

    I would like to thank everyone for all the information, gear tryouts, and overall welcoming attitude the has been prevalent since I joined this forum. Though all it helped me figure out is that I REALLY like hammocks and want one. I cant make my mind up which one I want first though!

    Made it home about 7:45 pm from the hang. That's about 12 hours from hammock to home. Fast trip home and made good time.
    I had a great time on the hang. I want to thank Out'N'Back and Food for all of the work and support for the hang. They did a great job of providing information and support for the trip.
    Got the wet gear hanging out to dry. Heavy rain every day
    More photos and stuff later.

    Hi WB, Glad to hear you and Dennis made it home safe.
    I got home about 3PM and have been working on the trip photos for our trip report.
    I'll do my best to start one tomorrow morning in that forum. I am looking forward to everyone's
    photos and comments on the trip.

    Thanks again for taking a chance and driving so far to come hike / hang with us.

    Isheian, Glad to read you two made it home safe as well.
