Just wanted to post some of the pix I shot on Friday. It was a pleasure meeting Mountainman and his nephew! Really a wonderful location for the hang, and we woke up to snow to boot! Had a great time sitting around the fire and having Risk pointing out stars and constellations. Really a memorable trip! I really, really cold feet through the night, I guess I found the limitations of my 20 degree setup as it got down to 6 or so. I beat a hasty retreat at around 0800 and in doing so forgot a tree strap and my folding chair. MtnMan was kind enough to shoot me a PM, so my wife, dog and I went back down go a walk and to meet up with HamMike, Mtnman, Tim, and Home Run for lunch. Wish I could have stayed Sat night too. We did get to go to ****'s and get some columbia warm stuff for an insanely low price and get a JCP Down coat for the wife. Good times! Enjoy the pix.
Thanks to all who came out!!
Friday had a great time sitting around the fire with Risk, CB200 and my nephew Jake. Good fire, Great conversation, temps down to 6 or 7 degrees -4 with the windchill and good sleep once I hit the hammock.
Saturday morning they all left and my buddy Tim came out around 1 and he and I took off for about a 4 mile hike on some of the trails. We got back to camp to see Home Run and HamMike setting up, we talked about our set ups for a while, started a nice fire and CB200 came back out with his Wife and Dog and the cooking began. Tim and I cooked our ribeye steaks and some mac and cheese and ate like kings. My buddy GMOHanger (Chad) stopped out for about 3 hours and Home Run, HamMike, Tim, GMOHanger and myself sat around eating, staying warm and having many laughs.
What a great bunch of forum members that I had the opportunity to hang with this weekend, and share some nice cold temps.
I have a few pics and a short video that I will post later on.
Will do again in the near future.

Nice photography Alex! Great shots!
Looks like a good time, sorry I missed it.
Thanks for arranging the hang, Rich. Very nice time meeting everyone. (I can't believe you are a "Waffle Farm" Veteran!) Sure enjoy seeing the pictures and vid; nice job Alex and Risk. (Risk, hope to catch up with you at a hang soon.) Ahhhh.......nothing like a campfire on a snowy evening.
Rich, weren't we just talking about this? Check it out.
