    First annual Oregon Hang, Drift creek wilderness

    I was surprised there wasn't a thread for this one yet, so figured I'd start one.
    It was really great to meet you all, and check out some new setups. The raffle was lots of fun, enough prizes for everyone that showed up. I got a Hammock Bliss double hammock. Bigfoot won the grand prize cuben fiber tarp from Lawson Equiptment. It was kind of funny because he was the one organizing the raffle, and he told the ticket puller kid (wasn't sure his name?) he'd give em $20 bucks if he pulled his name. Sure enough, 2 seconds later, "Bigfoot". The look of horror on his face was priceless, I hope someone got that on video.

    The spot was gorgeous. Unfortunately I don't have any pics to post as I forgot to put my memory card back in my camera.

    Special shoutout to olzeke for the tasty scotch, hope it didn't make me too loud

    Anyway, anyone got some pics? Otherwise this is just another fish story.

    I'll second. It was SO lovely meeting you all! What an amazing raffle, too!!
    I think/hope I caught the looks of horror in both of their faces (crossing fingers).
    Here's the two group shots from the hang that I took. I'm working on a video, too, but doubt I'll finish it until next weekend.

    Thanks, everybuggy, for an awesome hang!! I can't wait until the next one.

    I can remember all of the names, plus one of the dogs. Anyone care to fill in the other dog?

    Back row (L-R):
    Mindwalk, Me, Becky, BgreyBPer, Chris, Bat, Eric, Andrew, GearJunky, Bigfoot, Rip.

    Front row (L-R):
    Kayt, Gary, Gavin, Slugbait, Laura, Jackleberry.

    Dogs: Ben, ?

    Rip-- You can mail me the light, or I can forget about it. Your choice. I remembered it at the top of the trail, so I was not coming back for it.

    Thanks to everyone who planned the Hang.

    Thank you Bigfoot for your efforts in the raffle

    And thank you to everyone who donated

    Great group of people! Was a ton to learn, and massive amounts of Idea's that are of course going to eat up my free spending cash..

    Maybe on the next hang we can by nice to "Pyro" and not leave him a giant hill to carry all his toys out of.. Maybe...

    I had aspen in my brain, but now that you mention it, I was laughing about the MaryAnn vs Ginger all weekend. I always liked MaryAnn better.

    Hey, BF, can you put together another list of the prizes with the winners listed? If not, maybe we can edit the list as it goes. I won the UK Hammock and am anxiously awaiting the month or so it will take for customs.
