    VIDEO: 2010 Hoosier Hang Part 1

    Hey, all! I finally got part 1 of the Hoosier Hang video done. Thanks to all who donated photos to this video, and to all who tolerated being filmed and photographed. The trip was a blast, and I can't wait for the next one.

    ****Please, if anyone knows of anyone I neglected to thank in the credits at the end, let me know ASAP and I'll get the video changed. Especially with the raffle donations, I'm worried I forgot someone.

    From the YouTube page:

    The 2010 Hoosier Hang went of beautifully in April, with scores of hammock campers descending on Brown Hollow and Browning Hill in the Hoosier National Forest, Indiana. Browning Hill is the site of a supposedly ancient ring of enormous cut stones at the summit, called the "Indiana Stonehenge." Local lore varies from placement of the stones by UFO's and space aliens to the presence of ghosts and spirits in this area.

    The only ghosts I saw wore headlamps and the only spirits were consumed quickly in alcohol camp stoves or in the guts of campers, but it was definitely a very moving experience and one I will not soon forget. It is rare that one gets to surround him/herself with so many good people (especially when most have never met face-to-face) and have such a great time, but this was one of those occasions. I absolutely cannot wait until the next time...

    If you enjoyed this video, please be sure to check out Part 2, available now. If you would like more information on hammock camping and this wonderful community, check out www.hammockforums.net. Thanks for watching!
