    SPAM LAKE! Just the sound of the name sends chills down my spine. Should this be designated as some sort of "Holy Mecca" for hammock campers to make pilgramages to? I can forsee holy wars being fought between hammock campers (the chosen people) and the lowly tent camping non-believers.

    Shug could become the Dali Spamma Guru of hammock knowledge and RULE Spam Lake.

    On the other hand, maybe I've had too much coffee this morning. Sure has possibilities though.

    Bit of a difference at that river crossing spot. Good race... I thought front stroke would beat back stroke, but back stroke won. That was a **** fine looking muffin, a real crowd pleaser. It looks like a really nice, out of the way, place to camp and with sandy river access too.

    This place is just perfect for a hanging adventure. It will see us many times during summer.

    PS - never too much coffee.

    The difference was crazy, a great spot for some summertime fun.

    The tubes were a new addition on this trip. With only a shortish hike in the Ohm was packed to 29pound with toys and bits. They will be joining us next time for sure.

    "A nice muffin in the bush".....sheer understatement. The excitement was palatable.
    A right good trip that.
