    Fall Northern Hang Date Poll

    As discussed in this thread, we have at least one major party with a conflict in the suggested date for a fall hang. So I am going to post a poll for possible dates, excluding opening weekend for the Minnesota Deer Firearm season on November 7th and Halloween weekend.

    This is just to determine a weekend. Add a few days either side of the weekend, probably a Thursday - Sunday again.

    And you can vote for multiple weekends!

    FWIW, I voted for all the weekends that I would be available. I'm not sure that's what you intended, but that's my story and I'm sticking to it!

    That is what I intended. I haven't voted myself yet, but I still prefer the 15th.

    You can cheat if you bring anything as good as those brownies again.

    Cheating is allowed with brownies like the first batch.
    I will need to look at the Nebraska foot ball schedule and vote my dates. However, my daughter and son-in-law allways like to have the tickets.

    Yeah those brownies were kinda good. All that food made for one of the best "back-country" meals I've ever had. Plus having Walking Bears' leftover slaw on the last night was a great treat !!!

    That Oct. 10 weekend is looking do-able for me at this point.
    When I get home off of the road I can make sure as I can check in with my master calendar keeper.
    Can't wait to get back into the piney woods!

    Not sure if I will be able to make this trip. I wouldn't want to influence the vote. Let's see where it ends up. I'm using up all my vacation days plus unpaid days off to go up to Manitou Island with my son in two weeks. Isn't it a little weird that there are more votes for the last choice??? .

    Maybe that's cuz there's no choice of "I wish I could be there but can't" That's how I had to vote.

    Greetings to all the Northern Hangers from my new abode in Tucson, AZ. I wish I could be there to enjoy the companionship of the group. I am looking forward to seeing the pictures and reading the stories of your Fall adventure.

    I am adapting to hanging here in the desert. Pretty tough to hang a hammock between two saguaro cacti Headed out tonight to the summit of Mt Lemmon where the weather is cooler and there are tons of trees at 9000ft.

    Best wishes, Kurt
