    Talking ViDEO: Minnesota Frozen Butt Hang, Finland, MN

    Bunch of us members of HammockForums.net got together in the bone-chilling artic-like woods of Finland, Minnesota. We got a low of -15F and some really high and strong winds. Windchills down to -30.
    We all loved it and wanted more)))))) Very fun and hearty group to hang out with. The amount of delectable food was staggering.
    Everybody chipped in on chores....especially sawing firewood. Keeps ya' warm out there.
    Peello's Dutch Ovens filled with Tater-Tot Casserole and Apple Crisp invade my dreams now. Goodness Gracious that was Good Eating))))))))
    Watching Strung Out, Boogsy and Jason build the igloo was awesome. Yes, I typed awesome.
    It was a treat to see old friends and make some new ones as we all bonded over a smokey fire in Forest of Finland, MN.
    Whoooooo Buddy
    A huge Thankee to Stairguy for putting this on....and for the patches.
    All secure in sector seven,
    Shug

    Wow Shug 12 minutes and 29 seconds of Winter Wonderland. That was Great.
    Looking forward to the more.

    Big shout out to all you guys that attended. Thanks for showing us how it's done.
    Your hammock kits and the camp setup was awesome.

    I think the opening title sequence of that vid explains the reason for calling it the "Frozen Butt Hang" . . . . . GET THAT BIG MAN SOME PANTS!!!

    Way cool video (no pun intended!) Looks like another great time together with fellow hangin crazies.

    this looked like a dang fun time. Cold, snow, wind...what more can you ask for!!! Some killer setups and the parachute fire pit. that looked great. was it warm under that thing, or was all the warm air in the parachute???

    camp chores.....i like to refer to that as play time at camp!!!
