    Christmas present

    Just spent the last few minutes going over the marlin spike hitch with my bro. Got him an ENO for Christmas and put a full whoopie suspension from AHE on it. I believe he is hooked. Next, get him into The Gorge (Linville!)

    If you get him into the gorge you may not be able to get him back out, I know I'm itching for another trip myself.

    You gonna make in May? I'm shooting for Trail Days and a few nights in the Gorge. Using this all as incentive to get brother up from Alabama. Gotta use that new hammock!

    I'm hoping to make it. Once a year is not enough time to visit the Gorge nor the Rats.

    Just finishing up a double set of IX quilts, hammocks and whoopies for my friends kids since he said he may need to go back to ground to get them to come out with him!

    I did that to my BIL this fall. Made him a tablecloth hammock, and full suspension kit.

    Now I just need to get him out in the woods
