Very cool Trip Report. Nice pix too.
Sorry I was not able to make this one. Looks like a good time was had by all.
With "Gumbo" cooking things up, you're sure to eat like a King. Timbrr you have yourself a mighty fine paddling partner there.
Keep me in mind on your future paddling & hanging trips. We'll catch up together I'm sure.
Also really nice reading about your ground dwelling converts, way to go!
I would feel more optimistic about a bright future for man if he spent less time proving that he can outwit Nature and more time tasting her sweetness and respecting her seniority. - E. B. White (1899 - 1985)
Sounds like a great time.
here's the vid....another rush job, wanted banjo music for one pic but ran out of time, when you see the pic you'll know, just imagine Deliverance music in the background:
Since it was my birthday I got a chance to use up a "special" kitchen pass. So, instead of doing the typical family stuff I got to "sit in the woods and act foolish" (that's what my wife calls camping).
Again Timberr and Gumbo made me very welcome and are terrific hosts. Like the true mother hen Gumbo was convinced that everyone in the group hadn't eaten in days. From the moment I set foot on the island food was flying out of the fire or stove and into my belly. No complaints here.
The setting was beautiful but could benefit from applying some LNT principles (fewer TP flowers). I guess that's the price you pay for having a site that's easy to get to. I got a chance to meet some new hangers and maybe some future hiking contacts. What's not to like.
So, when's the next hang????
