Here is the trip report for the 2nd chance Fall Hang for the Ontario Hammock Hangers Association.
So the hang started by me picking up Wolvaroo and heading out to Valens Conservation area Friday afternoon and grabbing the site we wanted. It was a good thing we did as another couple showed up at another campsite and after chatting for a second with them found they were going to grab the site we took.
I got a message from DistoredAxis that he was going to be joining us that evening, and he did show up as it was getting dark (after doing a few laps of the camps roads with his really tricked out Jeep.
Saturday morning rolls around and the rest of the crew start arriving. JeffTrex being the next to arrive. After that we had a few visitors show up to see everyone's gear and to chat. These included forum members [o]TTeR, jodster and grounder. Grounder was the one that was ready to throw in the towel on hammocks as he was suffering at the endless choices. So we walked him around to a few of the setups and he tried out a couple of hammocks. Net result, is I think that Brandon at Warbonnet will be getting another order for a DL 1.1 Blackbird soon.
[o]TTeR decided to stay the night after a rather 'interesting' phone conversation with his wife but he did leave bright and early Sunday morning. So hopefully we will hear from him again.
Other highlights from the trip were the pesky raccoon that got with a few yards of usd and was pawing at dimeotane's food bad. Then he took a while to chase away. These campground raccoon's are fearless. Once it was gone, we didn't see it again.
So without further ado, I present to you:
