    Jan. 2011 Oregon "Hang Out"

    Headed to Tillamook Forest to get together with a few of the like minded and away from the city. The original destination was a no go. They narrowed the bridge on the route I used to take. Soooo. CK and I decided to camp a little closer in so others could find us. And find us they did. Camp fires, conversation, scenery, and best of all...HANGING!
    It got a little chilly at night, but it was good. Everyone seemed to have gear to handle it. We only had one visit from a curious coon. Aside from the ATV crowd, it was pretty peaceful. I hope I didn't snore too loud! Enough of the talk and on with a couple of pics. Thanks to all who came out. I hope we can get together again soon!






















    Epic times! CK has a bunch more pics. I'm sure she'll share first chance she gets.

    Next time! Seems a few of us are interested in the other spot you spoke of, by the creek.

    Just noticed, I didn't get a pick of your double.

    Thank you, Silverlion, for setting this up! I'm so glad to have met you all and had THE best time out there hangin' with y'all.

    Wake.Joe -- That was a total bummer, but I'm super-glad we got to meet you both! I can't wait to try out the spot you recommended.

    Here's a couple (SOOC) pics. I'll see if I can swing a video. I don't know, though. I didn't record much in terms of video, because I didn't want to be too annoying on our first outing.

    This is a shot of the surrounding forest. Damp and chill-aaay, but delightful! I'm definitely going to return to the TF and spend some quality time, me thinks!

    This is Silverlion's super 7-11 Slurpee special, with some additional refinements by him! (he's kinda handy, that guy) Too cool!

    A shot of justradar's Hennessy. It was inspiring to see everyone's rigs and walk through the accompanying customization mods. I learned so much from that alone! Thank you for sharing, everybuggy!

    And finally, a close-up of one the fabulous fire that kept the bitterness and damp at bay! (thank you SL and miisterwright for your stewardship of the flame)

    One thing came to mind. I noticed that there were no butt heads out there. Everyone seemed really cool. We even discussed religion and politics and everyone was civil. I'm wondering if the reason I didn't notice that there wasn't that one obnoxious person that drives everyone nuts, was because I was that person????

    I sure hope not!
    Glad we all had a good time. We'll hopefully get something together again soon.

    Heh heh heh... And here I was thinking I was the annoying one!
    It was super nice to go out with folks I'd never met before (always a risky prop) and immediately feel comfortable. It made for a wonderful and relaxing hang.

    Good company and conversation -- fer sure-zees.

    Sounds like fun. I'd like to make one of these hangs. How do you normally plan these?

    I just started a thread about a Portland area get together. Figured out where to go and hoped people responded. Keep your eyes peeled for more. Here's one someone else has in the works: http://www.hammockforums.net/forum/s...ad.php?t=26518
    I'll be trying to get one together soon as well. I'm addicted to having fun and I plan on having a lot of it. Hang with you soon!
