    Its worth going for Mors alone and even better with the collective knowledge there. Don and Mac will enlighten and dispel the doubts and misunderstandings of hammock camping. Too bad its so far away from me. That will be a good time.

    Do you know if this event is localize to you or is there something like this across the country. I would be interested in this if it were closer to Mass.

    A lot of my hiking friends have the impression that hammocks are for fair weather, summer use and not practical at the extremes of nature.

    Boy will Mac & Don set the record straight! I can't think of two better ambassadors.

    Love to see HF members presentation at this event.
    Maybe Youtube for the rest of us here down south.

    I see that Don Kevilus is FourDogs but is Mac MacEntyre?

    looks like they'd have shug being a part of the program, most around have foul weather gear and fair weather users, he is truly one of the exceptions, and heck he can do it on uni-cycle. just my thoughts, as he and grizz have influenced many.

    Yes, Mac is MacEntyre. 2 years ago I was the lone hammock hanger. I believe both Beep and Fourdog hung last year. This year there should be quite a few of us.
