    The Weekend with My Posse

    These weekends just are not long enough,,,So I started off friday night.
    Hammock: ENO Single
    Pad: Self inflating sleeping bag mattress pad
    Cover: Browning Kenai 30 dergree sleeping bag...
    ENO Bug Guard
    Cheapo tarp
    TEMP" lowest 48 degrees
    Riverside Texas @ Haromon Creek/Trinity River

    I set up Friday night @ 10pm, and slept just fine , even though it was 48 degrees when I got up Sat. morning.

    After the sun came up , it warmed up into the 70s. My Posse wanted to set out some catfish juglines, so off we went. Alittle while later, we got the first..

    We even snagged this big ole snapping turtle

    The posse kept wanting to hang out at the Hammock Camp, even though they had nice warm heat in the camper,,,

    Sat evening, I made them a treat after dinner..... Apple Pie and whip cream...... and they slept like a log......




    Here is my possee, helping with the kayak....... they gotta help with everything,,,,,,

    FIVE more days till next weekend !!!!!!!!!

    Never seen such a cute posse! Looks like everyone had a great time. Alas, my "posse" is older, just into high school, so my weekends are not my own very often these days.

    I remember those days...now, it's bribery and death threats to get them to move.
    it's all good!

    Those posse smiles are awfully big...from hammocks, from catfish, from turtles, from apple pie (hmmm, maybe), from Dad (you bet). How lucky can a hangin' Dad be?!!! A weekend, hammock, kids and pie!!!! Whooa!
