    I think my 3/4 ton suburban driving 180 miles will probably eat more gas than a bike going 650 miles. If to foot permits, I'll probably take my old trailhead Toyota to cut back a bit.

    Last Call



    This is the last day to let us know if your want to go on the Horse Creek hang July 15-17 2011. This is the list as it stands so far:

    YES



    wisenber -late Friday afternoon

    Roche -Friday morning

    AcesWild -Friday afternoon

    MedicineMan -late Friday afternoon

    photojag


    Crawldaddy +1 -(arriving Thursday?)




    Maybe

    SteveToTheO



    The first wave will be arriving on the shores of Horse Creek to plant the Hammockforums flag. Crawldaddy will be doing the honors.

    If anyone else wants to go and has an idea of when they will try to arrive, now is the time.

    For those needing directions or other information, please feel free to PM me. I can also give my cell phone number via PM if needed.

    The heat looks to be breaking a bit this weekend, and the altitude will help bring it down some more. Look for a few scattered thunderstorms this weekend as those are common this time of year. Don't forget your raingear.

    Some of us will be fishing. If anyone has any questions about the regulations and where you can pick up a license let me know. I will be hobbling around with my Tenkara gear trying to catch some "natives".

    I hope everyone has a great time out there. I really wish I could be there.I was really looking forward to meeting some fellow forumites and checking out some gear and rigs. Hopefully I will make the next one, but in the meantime I will be anxiously awaiting the trip report. Happy hanging guys.

    Really enjoyed meeting every one, getting in some much needed R/R. Aces Wild is hilarious and good company. Roach has that 'northern' flair of humor, Crawdaddy very thoughtful, Scott just a fine soul.
    Rain and a cold snap got me thinking in the box that is my Ohm since I forgot my UQ the Ohm's foam back panel was put to use along with all my spare clothing.
    Having a tot. of 2 hours of flyfishing-this trip included I'm thiking with the restrictions and no stocking, that this area is professional level and I was glad just to see some fish hitting and pulling my lure down.
    The group tarp (Kelty Noah) that Roach hauled in was a nice touch and thanks to all who tended the fire.
    Besides no UQ both my mini-bics were without fuel and the door to my Princeton Tec torch broke off (last trip is was the vid camera battery door)...so gear comes and goes but not the memories of being out there with fellow hangers-thanks again to Wisenber for getting this one up and running.

    Nice video! Thanks for getting it up there so quickly.
    That was just a nice relaxed weekend in the mountain with fellow hangers and no particular plan. I look forward to seeing you folks again sometime soon.

    It was pointed out that I didn't get Aces in the vid aaaarrrrrg, he's a great guy and I thought I got everybody....only solution is to get him to another hang. Hey, Ryan's wasn't that bad...at least it stopped my slide to starvation.

    With this group, there was not that much effort involved. Everyone showed up ready to go without any direction on my part. I just suggested the location and made a few fishing trips for recon purposes.
