    Me also.

    I counted at least 33 during the: Picnic / raffel / photo Opp. Plus Refrigerator & Mt Man who had to leave early.
    I am not sure if I missed any, too many faces to keep track of, but I do think that about 3 or 4 (or more) were out hiking when I did my count.

    I was there in spirit! Call it an "out-of-body-hang".
    Trust nobody!

    I was there, (sweating in my BB, Sock, VB and Katahdin UQ,) and it was definitely an experience that I want to repeat on a regular basis. Next year, no refrigerator on my back.

    You are lucky to get one of NCPatricks socks, he does a great job. Did you get a look at my sock (HECU) while you were at the hang? I am definitely a "sock evangelist" for cold weather hanging - I never got a drop of condensation either night, my quilts were bone dry all weekend, and I was actually too warm both nights. If anyone had asked at the hang, I had 3 or 4 different socks with me that they could have tried. HC4U scored one of my silk socks - I can't remember which version, as I was experimenting with different openings/zipper combinations - I can't wait to see/hear how it performs for him. Shug has another version of the silk sock that he has already done a mod to, and I'm kicking myself for not completing myself. When I catch up with school and work, I will be making a couple more - just have to get the right zippers ordered. But they work great, and you will not be disappointed. I'm also going to be making just a top cover for the BB that utilizes elastic around the entire edge to hold itself on - no zippers required. I am expecting around 8 oz. for just the top cover.
