    Thumbs up Great Trip!

    For my two cent's worth, I want to say that I had an absolute blast this past weekend at RRG with the guys who were able to make it. I've never attended an hangout and didn't totally enjoy the company of everyone there. My many thanks to Headchange4U, Cerberus, Grizzly Adams and Mule for making this one of the best hangouts I've attended. It was great to have the opportunity to meet Grizzly Adams and Mule (skskinner), one of our newest members. And as always, it was great to hang out with Cerberus (king of the powdered cheese) and Headchange. I loved seeing the interesting gear, especially the bridge hammock a'la Grizzly Adams. Thanks again to Mule for being my hiking partner for the weekend, I really enjoyed it. I hope we can do it again sometime.

    The weather was just as HC described it, but nothing that couldn't be overcome with an extra layer of insulation at night. Of course, the second night was a bit warmer and I think most of us wound up pulling off layers. Again, an excellent hangout. Those who couldn't come were definitely missed, you guys would have enjoyed the trip. Hopefully you can make it up some time. I think there was some talk of making this an annual or biannual event. I hope y'all are in agreement.

    RRG hang

    I suppose it is getting monotonous hearing about what a great weekend this turned out to be; it was well worth the drive. I'm looking forward to more HF hangs with these guys, and others.

    I have some photos I'll upload also, but am bandwidth challenged (cellphone modem) until tomorrow.

    Well, I can see I missed another good time. I must check out how far it is from here to there, so maybe I can make the next one. Looks like y'all were at a great place.
    Mule, how did your SS do on the 30* night?

    I had a blast

    This was my first time meeting everyone and I was made very welcome by all. Thank you all for a great hike and camp and for all the pointers you all shared with me about hammock camping. Today I put my Hennessy ultralite backpacker on sale on ebay, as well as a laptop computer.....something tells me there is going to be a shift in the economy...from my hand to the outfitters bank.
    I loved the great night's sleep I enjoyed, truly enjoyed in my hammock, but I now get in and out from the top. Bought a double eno today and played around installing a removable ridge-line and the new Nest and NoSniveler that arrived the afternoon after I left for the campout. It is a cool setup, for sure.
    Well, Hope to meet many more of you as the hangouts go by.
    Someone who knows how will surely be uploading the picture we got of the true faces of Changeface, Hooch, Grizzly Adams, Cerberus and Mule very soon.
