    2009 Trail Days Update?

    Any new gear being unveiled? Stories from there? All of us who didn't get to make it want to know. Come on Cannibal, find a computer somewhere.

    I think I remember 2 or 3 PC's in the whole town at the library. Not much for updating. Partying is a different story. Maybe I can make it next year.
    Is that too much to ask? Girls with frikkin' lasers on their heads?

    Thanks for the link. I saw Hooch and Pan in the pics.

    Looks like there is something new from Hennessy?
    Is that a winter tarp?

    Looks like Zak & Karen sitting behind Hooch.
    I see 5 hammock makers represented there. Speer, Jacks Are Better, Warbonnet, ENO, & Hennesy.
    I couldn't be sure who the guys were sitting at the Warbonnet set up, but I'll bet one of them was Cannibal<G>
    don`t leave the CREATOR out of the creation!

    Well that explains why I haven't heard from Brandon since Monday! I was afraid he didn't want to sell me a hammock

    I know! I was wondering why one of the manufacturers wasn't responding- it finally clicked it was Trail Days...

    TH
    my hammock gear weights total: 2430g (~86oz)
    Winter: total 2521 (~89oz)
    (see my profile for detailed weights)

    gram counter, not gram weenie!

    Just a quick update from my phone - TD was fantastic, and there are definately some fun stories - I'll let AngrySparrow describe, I can't do it justice . Cannibal missed some of the magic, but I'll be posting some pictures/stories tomorrow afternoon!

    Yes Hennessy does have a new product. He has a side zipper and double layer (imagine that) but I think Angrysparrow or Cannibal has the full report on that.
