    NC>Uwharrie Yates Place>March 2013 Trip Report

    Here's a Trip Report thread for the 1st annual Uwharrie Spring Hang.
    Our group is planning to hold Uwharrie hangs twice each year - on "Time-Change" weekends, Spring Forward and Fall Back.

    This was the 1st annual Uwharrie Spring Forward Hang.

    Gunsfan05, Sleeping Beauty, and FluffytheCat - you were missed and we hope to see you again soon.

    Fortunately, Hangin Burrito kept the fires burning...

    Here's our group site on Friday midday. Lots of room for hammocks!

    - Loki,

    "Climb the mountains and get their good tidings.
    Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees.
    The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy,
    while cares will drop away from you like the leaves of Autumn."
    John Muir

    I think I gained 10lbs on this trip. We had great food and of course we hung. I have pics I will upload at some point. Oh and there was chocolate cake, and some hammock hotties, but I don't have any pics pf those.

    Here is a shot of the Friday night conflagration. A chilly Hoggtyed is in the background with Berksound hidden by the flames to his right.

    This hang was even better than the "Fall Back" hang except that the Gunsfan, Fuffy, and Sleeping Beauty were missed. Emerson did a great job starting the fire with his firesteel. Hanging Burrito and Running Feather cooked awesome meals with the Volcano. Berksound came all the way from New Jersey and hung with us. It was great to see the rest of the folks from last fall one again. Special Thanks to Hiknhanger for making UCR's for Litefoot and me. Glad to see we are going to make this a twice a year get together!

    Here is a short 360 iPhone video of the Yates Place campsite, included is the awesome cook box made by Hanging Burrito. They are playing ladder ball in the background. Just don't let Groundhog trick you into believing he's a beginner at the game!

    It was great to see old friends and make some new ones. I had a great time and will be a regular attendee.


    Is this thing still working?

    Thanks for putting this hang together.

    I had a great time as always meeting new friends and hanging with old friends. Can't wait for the time to change again.

    Looks as if a good time was had by all. I'm gonna have to try and make it out to this hang at some point, if only I didn't have that work thing in the way.

    Thanks for a great weekend all - that was fantastic.

    The food on these hangs has been beyond belief - thank you to all the chef's and to everybody that brought stuff. If you weren't there Saturday, man you missed some great stew, BBQ, cobblers (both cherry and apple, mind you), buttermilk cream pies, chocolate cake, and more.

    On Saturday night, somebody mentioned the videos of 3 sisters backpacking in the Smokeys.. I haven't watched them yet but thought I'd share the link:

    my $.02

    Great reports everyone but please remember it is all about the embers!

    The fire that warmed as we sat in a coma from the delicious food...

    until the fall.
