I had a GREAT time and really enjoyed meeting Grizz, Mule , and Cerberus for the first time. The weather was beautiful all weekend and the RRG was ablaze with fall colors.

    We found a nice, secluded spot not far from the original campsite Doctari suggested.

    Friday's daytime temps were in the upper 40's\lower 50's with the night time temps reaching 30, maybe a little below. It was cold. Saturday was a little warmer with day time temps probably in the mid to upper 50's. The thermometer said 35* when I checked it Sunday morning. The hot dog dinner on Saturday was great, and really tasty after the day hike to Gray's Arch and back.

    I enjoyed seeing everyones setup. I got to see a HH Super Shelter for the first time on Mule's setup. I also got to see a bridge hammock for the first time and I got to test it out. It's a very comfortable hammock and I can see me making one in the very near future.

    I also got to test out my Ticket to The Moon hammock and the new Speer Winter Tarp. The tarp performed well but with a few issues that I will address in an upcoming review. The TTM hammock was extremely comfortable and worked out better than I expected. Unfortunately many of my pics didn't come out but I will take some more when I get a chance.

    I would like to thank everyone who attended and I hope you had a great time like I did. For those of you who planned to attend but could not make it, you were missed

    Here is a gallery of pics. Most of these pics were thanks to Mule. There must have been condensation in my camera because most of my pics came out to blurry to recognize.

    I look like a burglar in this photo. Everyone else looks like respectable campers. I look like I'm gonna go ransack their hammocks when they turn their backs.

    So, you guys couldn't have lied & said you had a miserable time huh?

    Wish I could have been there, looked forward to it for quite a while, but the funeral needed to be attended

    Great pictures, thanks!! Iv'e been to the arch 3 times already, but would have enjoyed another visit.

    How 'bout these one. Would you walk past these two guys on a lonely trail all by yourself?

    A splendid time was had by all.

    I see a picture titled " Tenacious Tree". or I suppose "Tenacious T" for short. I had heard of the band "Tenacious D", but "Tenacious T(ree)" seems even crazier!

    While we were at the RRG Hang, I made the observation that these hangs are the only event that I know of where the highlight of everyone's trip is getting in their respective hammocks and going to "bed". Cereberus was quick enough to add that the only reason people on these hangs take day hikes is tire out so that we sleep that much better at night. Interesting observations.
