    SECOND ANNUAL FLORIDA HANG (planning)

    OK guys--here it is! Time to get our poop together for the SECOND ANNUAL FLORIDA HANG. The questions as of now are 1. Where? 2. When? 3. What additives? and 4. Who? I think we all know the why. So, folks, we're getting the band back together! Let's have the planning begin on, 3, 2, 1......Go!
    Hedgehogs! Why can't they just share the hedge?

    Oh yes indeed! Let's do it right after I invent my portable ridgeline A/C unit, or it turns cooler, whichever occurs first!

    Where?
    The advantage of having it at Buck Lake again is that at least 50 of us know how to get there. Also, it did turn out to be a great place with the large open area and the lake. The downside is that it may be considered boring to go to the same place agan.

    When?
    Around the same time as last year would perhaps attract more of our northern family (round up some more hangers ldcakes)! That would also get us Florida hangers ouside in the coolest weather, which we don't get often. The only downside is that it's so far away. But, we can schedule group hikes between now and then.

    Who?
    Eveybody from last year and then some!!!

    Buck lake seems like a pretty central location. Count me in.

    Yeah, By the time the weather up here starts to freeze our nostrils, I'm sure a few more will be aching to go to Florida for some Sun Therapy!

    I'm in. I have made my own hammock. I have a Gar-quilt in all it's orangy glory. I have custom orange whoopies.


    I may even ride my scooter all the way down there.
    Look up before you hook up!!
