"Just prepare what you can and enjoy the rest."
"Climb the mountains and get their good tidings.
Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees.
The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy,
while cares will drop away from you like the leaves of Autumn."
— John Muir
No more extended van so it should be fun figuring out how to squeeze 4 big boys, food and gear for the long weekend into my Hyundai. Everyone's looking forward to the kids workshops, hanging out and adding another patch to their collection.
We're having to keep things simpler this year to conserve space so this year, we'll be contributing group chili for Sun dinner and peach cobbler for Sat & Sun night. Seems weird since the last 2 years, we had 2 big coolers and 3 dutch ovens going pretty much all weekend.
You'll find me hanging somewhere in the sunshine state.
In one of the threads mention was made of a swap/ flea mkt. I'll be bringing some stuff to trade/ sell.
Most of us end up poorer here but richer for being here. Olddog, Fulltime hammocker, 365 nights a year.
Gumbo and I are bringing 40# of charcoal and two big bottles of starter along with two boxes of liners for the cakes and cobblers.
That's clearly not enough for everyone for the whole weekend but it'll be there for anyone who runs out or just couldn't fit a 20# bag in their UL pack. Or their overloaded car.
FHV Planning Thread (it's gonna rock!)
So many trees, so little time...
Not to mention the pulled pork and Gumbo.
