    This was my first hang and I had a blast. You couldn't ask for a better group of folks to spend some time together with! The Saturday night feast was indeed incredible. I've made several folks back home that were not there extremely jealous showing them the pics of the food.

    While I didn't have a perfect hang that night, I did get a better one than some trials I had. I've made some notes on things to modify to make things easier, and picked up a few other ideas.

    On a side note, even though every bug around my campsite area was extremely enthusiastic on seeing a way off the island my attempting to sneak into the backpack, I am proud to say that none of them successfully escaped from Goat Island via any piggy backing with me. Permethrin on the backpack is one thing that I have decided is a necessity that I never really thought about before.

    Oh Shug. . . thats not even the half of it . Just imagine the center of that peach cake snuggled up next to a healthy scoop of blackberry cobbler and then topped with some vanilla ice cream. . . That was the bowl that I had

    That expalins the feeling I was experiencing in the picture with me laying in the hammock. . . post 161

    My bowl looked just like yours muskrat.

    I've said it before and I'll say it again.
    Peach Upside-Down Cake is the highest calling a young peach can aspire to, followed closely by hand-cranked peach ice cream.
    He is your friend, your companion, your defender... he is your dog. You are his life, his leader, and master. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of that devotion.

    That would be my preference too.
