    I'm seriously interested in becoming a newbie hammocker but don't have one yet. I would love to talk to someone on the phone to ask some questions that would just take tooo long to type out here on a forum. I'm also interested--as well as a buddy who has a Hennessy--in coming to the hangout. I don't want to put my number out there but if anyone is willing to help me out by talking and answering some questions please email me at hikinghombre@yahoo.com. We can connect with phone numbers that way.

    Thanks so much for your help!

    Jeff

    It's not cheap at $18 per visit, but better than $50 per animal per day for boarding, and they also do things like get the mail and take out the trash, so it's about the best I can do.

    Cannibal, They are both suppose to be great shows. I will let you know how they both are. I looked at Cavalia on You Tube and it looks incredible. If you are going to the Hang have a great time. Maybe if I know a little more in advance next time I can also join in on the fun and games, Regards

    Sounds like a great deal to me! Might have to look into that myself so I can get some longer trips without the little dog.

    I decided to come down with a cold instead of making the trip to CO. Looks like this is the second one close to home I'm going to miss. Maybe I will get lucky and make it to northern AZ.

    Well, especially since one of my dogs is old, I end up needing 3 visits per day. It starts adding up pretty fast.

    With lots of animals, the walkers make more sense because the fee is usually per visit, and not per animal, up to a reasonable limit. Boarding is per animal, so it would cost me a small fortune to keep this zoo occupied.


    Hope ya'll enjoy the hang - I'll be setting my hammock up at a cozy little cabin in northern California

    I'm out.

    We can't afford to hire a pet sitter right now (gotta fill the propane tank for winter) and can't find anyone to watch them. Sucks; this is prime outdoor weather.
    Trust nobody!

    i'm out too, meant to post the other day when i realized this, but we rsvp'd to a wedding in estes park and didn't realize it was this weekend. i almost had my wife convinced to cut out on the reception sometime in the early afternoon, but it would probably end up being late afternoon (wedding at 1pm) and the drive from estes just looks too far for that late in the day.
