    first dutch/belgian trip report

    Hey guys and girls,

    we had a good time at the first dutch/belgian hangout in the belgian forests 'les ardennes' (http://www.hammockforums.net/forum/s...d.php?p=473494)
    A group of 7 nice people with hammocks
    We had pretty good weather and a cold night with some cold butts here and there.
    With hammocks ranging from hennesy to warbonnet to dd to nobrand we were all doing fine.
    Some of us stayed the extra night on top of a ridge overlooking the valley and river.

    thanks to all you guys (and girl) that were there and I hope to see you a next time.

    I'll refrain from writing a long report and just show some pictures here.

    what, you did not bring bottom insulation?

    Looks like it was a really lovely location. Really annoyed I couldn't go now. When is the next one? I really need a long lead time to be able to time it well. With a baby < 1 year I'm really limited on time.

    I love a trip report with lots of pictures. Looks like you guys had a great place to hang.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Looks like a great trip... Plenty of gear hammocks too. I like to see some of the hanging options for gear storage. Makes me feel like I'm not alone...
