    Sometimes I like to hike and think, And sometimes I just like to hike.

    Hiking is'ent about waiting for the storm to pass its about learning to hike in the rain.

    My wife thinks we're all nuts for being out in that cold. I keep telling her we're adventurous not crazy.

    Now a few words about food. We all brought way to much. We could have invited the nearby small town to join us and still had leftovers. On the plus side, nothing spoiled in that weather.

    I want to thank Fourdog, Paul, and Snipen for arranging this and for all the extra equipment that was supplied.

    I got to look at a few systems and got a lot of ideas for my setup. I guess my sewing skills will be tested this year.

    We were breaking temperature records in the other direction at the 6th Annual Mt Rogers Winter Hang.
    Warmest it's ever been for that winter hang.
    But you & the other "Frozen Butt" hangers were thought of. I even saw a few Carl impressions... and I caught Angrysparrow doing one, but don't tell him I told ya

    Thanks for the video. You looked nice and toasty in all that down even though it was frigid outside.

    Shug: Great video, it captured the experience very well.

    Sure glad you got to come out, even if it was only one night

    We had a great time. I left Sunday about 12:30, got home around midnight
    Hope to get around to my report sometime today

    But rather to skid in sideways, totally worn out, shouting,
    Woo Hoo!....What a Ride!

    Looks like ya'll had a soggy one for sure. The lack of snow made it easier for us.

    Excellent video as always Shug.
    Really enjoyed your tour of the equipment you select for a hang.
    I always pick up a tip or two.

    Congrats to the new group hang cold record holders. Looking forward to your
    trip reports. Lots to learn from you guys on how to stay warm @ -20F
