    It was a great time! It was really nice to meet everyone out there. Thanks to Flackfizer for getting this trip planned and especially for the forethought to drop a water cache. It sure made life easier on us at the camp. I hope to see everyone out at the next trip, and certainly looking forward to seeing the pictures from this one. Thanks again, to everyone that came out there, for making this such a good time!

    Yeah definitely a great time. Thanks FLB for picking me up, even though you took out my other ankle with your walking stick10 minutes later. Thanks Flackfizer for the water cache. Great to meet everyone. Grinder was definitely a great motivation. He left us in his dust most of the time, and Bearfinder for Hiking the hole trail bear foot with out a single complaint. Thanks COWBELL for scaring all the wildlife away on the trail. Looking forward to the next trip.

    As usual for this crowd, and OUTSTANDING weekend. I was 32.6 degrees Friday night, so we have decided that Hammock Forum members in Florida can control the weather by causing record lows to coincide with our hangs!

    We had a great bunch of people, lots of laughter and lots of exercise. Little Felix shamed us all by hiking the whole weekend BAREFOOT! I wish I was half the man he is

    OK, here is what everyone is waiting for ... pictures!

    Looks like everyone had a great time! I could have told you Bearfinder would put you all to shame. He's one amazing kid!

    Glad everyone made it through okay. Thanks for the pix.
    So Bearfinder went barefoot?!? Wasn't he sick just a day or two ago? I guess he got better...
    .
    So many trees, so little time...
    We follow where the Swamp Fox guides,
    His friends and merry men are we;
    And when the troop of Tarleton rides,
    We burrow in the cypress tree.
    The turfy hammock is our bed,
    Our home is in the red deer's den,
    Our roof, the tree-top overhead,
    For we are wild and hunted men.

    Been home for a bit and took a nap. After everyone left Bearfinder and I poked around the cyrpus swamp to look for nice poles for carving. We found a small harvest and he was thrilled. What a great time everyone. Thanks to one and all. We are really looking forward to the next great event. I will post videos when I am done editing. Thanks again!
    Hedgehogs! Why can't they just share the hedge?

    Fantastic weekend everyone! I had a very good time, plus - minus a few extra long miles for me. All is well with me after a hot shower and a nap.
    Always good to get out in the Piney Cyprus Woods with some of my Hammock Hanging friends. Much appreciated to all and also to Flackfizer for the extra water cache at the end of a long day.
    Rendering video as I type this, Trip reporting video soon to follow.

    I can't wait to get together again soon...
