A great bunch of folks got together in the woods this weekend past (Aug 5th-7th). I want to thank everyone who made this a memorable event – Thank You!
Hangin’ Burrito and I arrived bright and early morning on the 4th soon to be joined by Hickery. We all made a second trip to the vehicles to bring up more food, beverages, a communal tarp setup, and extra gear to cover anyone that might be lacking in any way. Following that we did some bushcraft, ate a bit, felled some dead trees and cut a lot of wood. Following the inevitable afternoon thunder shower we started the fire, ate some dinner, chewed the fat, and prepared for the weekend to come.
Friday morning we got up, cut more wood, and waited for the troops to arrive. By early afternoon folks started coming in and the woods began to look like a nice little village. We ate dinner and had a great time around the campfire.
Saturday morning a few more folks rolled in and a large group took the hike up to the bald on John Rock. We sat there looking out at the beautiful forest that is Pisgah, took a few group shots, and just started our descent when the heavens did open. The trail became a torrent in just minutes. Thankfully everyone made it back to camp in one piece.
We all dried off, a few more folks rolled into camp, we got our fire started up again, and had our communal dinner. The night was filled with great food, good conversation, comic banter, and a few fish stories.
Sunday morning was nice and crisp. Folks arose with sleepy eyes and began moving about the camp. By and by everyone packed up and made their way down the trail. It’s tough see the end of the hang happening.
Anyone with pictures or video please post!
Thanks again to everyone!!!
