    Annual Fall Texas Hangout!!

    Well it's the beginning of summer and I haven't seen any kind of planning for this yet so I wanted to get the ball rolling. I've been really busy playing music and my weekends are filling up fast with gigs, so the sooner we set a weekend the better for me (sorry I know it's a bit selfish but I miss my hammock brethren!) I dont want to miss out on the opportunity to hang with everyone again!

    Any weekend in November could work. Let the planning begin!!

    There is a hang this weekend its the big thicket one, you should drop in. I think they set the week based on when that one wing of the park closes, sure mike and them will pipe in.

    Man I wish I could but I'm working all weekend to save up for a trip to Pagosa Springs Colorado to hang with my brother for four days. Sounds like a great time though!

    I'm interested in a Fall Hang I'll be in NM in June at the time of the summer Big Thicket hang.

    Missing you too brother! Nothing wrong with wanting to plan so it can happen!

    Glad to see the enthusiasm for fall! I usually have been able to hold off on the fall fantasizing until after a run of 100 degree days but there's nothing wrong with talking about it now too.

    The ball is actually already rolling with the date set but it's fine to push that ball a bit further down the road.

    + 1 on the suggestion to head southeast this weekend. Our regular tree buddies OldGringo, Alan, and TBCTX and some other Texas hangers who will hopefully join us again are meeting up in the Big Thicket for what should be a great time.

    Anywho, if you'd like this to be the official thread for the 3rd Annual Fall Texas Hammock Hang then let's go for it. I think several of us have agreed on keeping to the 2nd weekend in November at Fairfield Lake State Park. I know I'll be there that weekend along with my family and hope to have some others along as well.

    The 2nd weekend in November would definitely work for me. Im gonna miss the Big Thicket because of work. I'm saving up to meet my brother in colorado to hang for a few days in colder weather. Can't wait to escape this Texas heat for a little while.

    "Official" is a big word Uncle Mike, and I don't mean to step on any toes by posting this thread. I just want to raise awareness of this awesome annual hang we have going on and plan early. Like I mentioned I'm playing in two bands that are booked almost every weekend so I want to set the dates soon so I can make it without any schedule conflicts. If the 2nd weekend of November is a set date, then by all means let the planning begin!

    Great to hear the date works!

    No worries about stepping on toes.

    Game on!

    WHOO hoo!

    Cooler weather on the way!

    We could do a mid summer hang .... We would just need an air conditioned barn or something!
