    Big thanks to UncleMJM and Alan for putting the weekend together.

    Pam and I had a GREAT time meeting new friends and gawking at all that gear. WOW!

    Here's some photos...

    Can't wait for the next hang!

    Good times, let's do it again in 2011!

    Our gang had a great time too.

    It's amazing that over 40 hangers from TX, OK, LA, and FL all from very different worlds but with one common bond of hanging in trees could have such a great time together. In spite of the rain and mid-thirties, we had a fantastic time!

    Nothing like campfire fellowship, gear show and tell, and enough food to blow any diet.

    Where I am from if we do it once it's an event. Do it twice, then we are call it a tradition.

    Want the tradition to continue? If so, mark your calendars for November 11-13, 2011.

    Now, in the meantime, let's get together again sooner.

    I've got a few minutes to post some quick highlights...


    It was so great to see old friends from the 2009 hang and even better to meet so many new people. We had 40 people in attendance at the hang this year. Wow!

    Possum's Montana story = Legendary!
    Jack = Thank you for introducing me to more authors.
    Cogneato = Safe journey, dude!
    Sandpiper = When can I place my order??? No...seriously...when??? I'll give you my credit card number. Just bill me! (Thank you for the gift! )

    So many memories! More later...
    (Do I need to pass out awards again???)

    I believe UncleMJM was able to recoup the cost of the site reservations, the grocery bill for the breakfast Saturday morning, and the Amsteel order. Thanks to each of you for your generosity!

    Can't wait until 2011!

    I am so lucky to have joined the forum in time to meet such a great group of people. This was my first hanging event, group or otherwise and I had a blast. Thanks to all for the campfire fun and conversation. Can't wait til next year.

    This was a great change of pace for me, a frequent solo camper. This was like camping with 40 stand up comedians!

    And we found out that if you give Sandpiper $10 and send her to Walmart, she can amaze you by whipping up professional looking hammock accessories!

    Downloading and sorting pictures so I can mass post them to be linked in. Great time all.

    Ok working on getting them onto the other site now.

    We may have to move to a bigger state park next year! It was great seeing everyone again and meeting the others for the first time.

    The Rat Pack had a great time and we are looking forward to next year.

    As soon as I get the gear sorted, hung and at lest a LITTLE organized (blame Roz for that) I will get some images up.

    Fantastic time everyone, what a great bunch of people!

    I got home, showered, and straight to bed for a recoup nap. Oh, and I still have my keys.
    What a great group of people. I really had a great time visiting with everyone. Loved all the neat gear and I agree with Alan; Sandpiper, you are the Queen of DIY. I'm already looking forward to next year and our next hang. Someone yell out when and where and I'll be there. Maybe we could find a group site somewhere that had enough trees. I'll be scouting.

    Many thanks to Mike and Alan for all they did to bring this together, and thanks to all for making the trip...not a sourpuss in the bunch! Good times!
