    "Model T" should include this hang in the next edition of Walkin' with the Ghost Whisperers: Lore and Legends of the Appalachian Trail. Fantastic Hang to attend!

    Wish I could make it Ed, but I'm saving my pennies and vacation time for Trail Days a couple of weeks later. I think I'm just taking the whole month of May off in 2012. The zombies will be here a few months later and I wouldn't want to miss my last opportunity to attend the Hot Springs Hang again.

    All the sudden I'm hungry for a Smokey Mountain Diner meal. Yummmmm.

    I hope you take the month of May off - maybe I will see you in the woods!

    Ah, this is the granddaddy, and I don't know where I will be those days. It is my birthday weekend as well. How I would love to be there for it, but we will see how my timetable works as those dates approach. I know I will be in the vicinity, but exactly where remains to be determined as of yet.

    Ed, you are a great person with some very cool stories (love the ones about hanging in the Northwest up in the treetops to avoid the bears.) Thank you for all you do and have done for hammocking.

    I was at the Hot Springs Fall Hang. Hopefully I can make the spring hang.

    Shrek, I can bring my machete and we can see who can make a hiking stick the fastest.

    That was a lot of fun last year. I'll try to make it. If I do, I'll dig some ramps in April and throw them in the fridge so we'll have some for breakfast again.
