Here's a bunch of pictures and a video of our float down the French Broad River.
Kayaks and hammocks, love it love it love it.
The hanger in pict one with the SB has an awesome view of the river for the evening.
That's a great campsite! Campfire in the middle, hammocks surrounding... perfect!! Thanks for sharing!
Cool Video Mac. We had a great time! Perfect weather and a very high river. Thanks to everyone who helped me pull the river trip together, it was fun.
Thing 1 showed us once again how she is a real all around sports enthusiast! Mac you are very proficient on the water and it shows you have passed it down to your Daughter. Detail Man is a skilled and experienced paddler who was a great help with safety and leadership. Kelly (now Singing Otter) will be an up and rising paddler too. But PF was the Super Star of the day! Wow what courage! He went for every wave and ledge drop with Gusto! He surely lives up to his name!
It was nice to meet Ed & John and I really liked that Switchback! I still wanna try a Pea Pod Ed.
I got a lesson in whoopie slings from PF. And GrizzlyHackle, I found the cookie sheets at Wallmart and will be making those windscreens soon! Thanks for the ideas! Dave and Mac showed off there Bush Cookers and I got to practice with my Bush Buddy too!
Also I heard a rumor that Backpackingis1st has pics in his gallery of a lot of the hammocks!

Nice to see another video from you Mac ... especially nice to see a few Gorge Rats in the mix and Smiling Face's pretty smile out and about with you guys!

The weekend was a great time and I was very fortunate to be able to meet several of you there. The location was fantastic and I look forward to going back there in the future.
Thanks to Ed and everyone who made this such a fun trip and also made a noob feel very welcome.
Thanks for the video Mac. Cakes, thanks for putting the float trip together. It was a really fun weekend. I'm glad to have made some new friends, and got to know others better.
Ed, thanks for hosting. I look forward to doing it again next time.
