    2012 John Rock Hang

    Here is my video report of the trip. A big thank you to so many people. HB and RF did a great job setting up camp for us. Flatline thank you for the hammock tips and info, although you have probably just cost me more $$$. But I need a second set up for a friend. Look forward to seeing everyone at another hang. As always comments, critiques and suggestions are welcome on the video skills and editing.

    21 hammocks, wow! That would be about all the hammock hangers in AU. Looks like there’s enough room for 210 hammocks. Thanks for the video!

    Thank you man. Great video on your part as well. I look forward to having him out there. I started when I was 4, so I am thinking about the same for him.

    While work can be rough it does give us many opportunities to have the gear we need! Hope you get out soon.

    Thanks for the comment. Like many of us, I hope to make it to AU so day. I will have to bring my hammock if I do!

    As for me and my family we will worship the Lord. That is something that I can guarantee. Good to meet you as well. Look forward to seeing your video on a successful thru hike. I know it won't be long.
