80 Degrees by 8:00 AM; Texas Butt Bake Hang just around the corner; near heat exhaustion yesterday …
I’m ready for some cool weather. I’m ready for fall!
It’s time to start talking about November! Yep, let's get the Annual Texas Fall Group Hang planning underway!
If you don’t have the date saved yet, mark November 7-9, 2014 on your calendar for the Lone Star State’s Annual fall hammock infestation of the trees at Fairfield Lake State Park.
It’s a great time to renew friendships, make new ones, and play with gear, so don’t miss out.
As this is the sixth round of this annual event, we’ve somewhat become creatures of habit so let’s meet the weekend of the second Saturday in November at Fairfield Lake State Park once again!
There has been a large increase in forum membership over the past year and a good number of them are Texas folks, (or friendly neighbors of The Republic), and all are welcome. What started with a handful of folks from South/Central Texas in early 2009 has grown to nearly the century mark with past participants from Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana, Arizona, Florida, North Carolina, Michigan, and places forgotten or unknown.
If you have not been to this event before, take a few moments and scroll through some of last year’s planning and trip reports. It will help answer questions you may have and maybe create some that can be addressed on this thread in the weeks to come. Here’s the planning thread from last year and the 2013 Trip report links.
In the past, the fun has included car camping for those who like to bring everything; (the location has showers and porcelain facilities for those who won’t leave home without them); day hikes for those so inclined; lake paddling; fishing; pot luck dinners; Dutch oven cooking; DIY play time; lots of show and tell along with a little gear trading; group buys; stove tests; drawings for prizes, and some wonderful campfire fellowship.
Here is the link to the planning spreadsheet on Google docs. By posting to it we can keep a running list of folks attending and other stuff past the date that this post can be edited. Please add or update yourself on it.
So, let the planning conversation begin!
