    First overnight hang

    Spent my first night out at Canoebies place. It was great. Got down to 11 deg. I had just my cheap hammock and polly tarp, blue Wallyworld pad, sleeping bag and a nice wool blanket provided by canoebie. Tested my new whoopie slings I made the day before. Worked perfectly. There was also of course Canoebie , Gargoyle and TroutehCuss there. If you ever have the chance to eat from Canoebies DO you will be a very happy and full person. I need to fine tune a few things but all went well. Hmmm I have to remember a pillow next time.

    Canoebies Hang

    Made a few new friends and ate like a KING.

    Trip Report:
    Drove two hours South and met up with Canoebie at his house. An awesome spread with sandhill cranes honking overhead. Low of 11 degrees at night. Definitely had frost on the pumpkin In attendance were Troutehcuss, and otter46544. Great to put some names and faces together. Had a great time swapping lies and telling stories around the campfire.
    Canoebies throw down on the dutch oven was some excellent eatin'. Saturday night dinner included slow cooked vegetable soup that was to die for, some venison and burgers grilled over the fire, and a couple adult beverages.

    Coyotes kept us entertained with some good background noise during the wee hours of the night.

    Sunday morn was frigid, till the sun warmed the site. All hangers reported sleeping well, with a few needed mods for cold sleeping temps. But from the sounds of snores echoing in the woods, most slept well.
    Fresh cowboy coffee took some of the sting off the cold temps. Then canoebie set out to demonstrate his dutch oven prowess. Taters, eggs, sausage, and venison, with added onions, peppers, garlic and cheese. If y'all get a chance, it was deliciousioso!! Oh, and biscuits in the DO. Yummy!

    Trout and his DIY 12x10 flourescent orange (stealth has left the building) tarp, hiding under the tarp is a nice green 12 foot long hammock, new whoopies in gunmetal grey. Trout's diy skills are impressive, we all took a ride in his longdog hammock. Trout brought a few sleeping bags along to soften his rookie hang, (3 bags, 1 pad and a wool blanket. He's a good snorer, too.

    So Gargoyle called me yesterday to rub in just how good all the DO and venison chow was, thanks bud. My mouth is still watering. Wish I had some trees and a pond, our 4 acres are covered in sage brush and tumble weeds.

    Thanks again G for rubbing in the good time and telling me all about it.
