    What have I gotten out of group hangs?

    Seen first hand a wide variety of gear I could have only read about otherwise.

    Visited places I might never otherwise have seen.

    Gained weight stuffing myself on the good eats of great outdoor cooks.

    I've seen, and learned about Swedish Candles; Fat Wood; recipes for great food; cozy construction; whoopee slings how to make, how to use; wood burning stove demos; bear scat; how to make char cloth; how to pack a Molly Mac Pack; knife honing; Single line hammock suspension, Dutch oven techniques; new alcohol stoves and the list can go on.

    Probably the most valuable thing I've gotten from group hangs are lasting friendships and memorable campfire time with people I would have never otherwise met.

    What about you?

    Could not agree more with you on that one. It has been a true honor to meet those that I have and hike with them. Hope to do many more hangs.

    I learned that a roof-top carrier makes a FANTASTIC pulk for firewood.

    With all the different gear and set ups to see and talk about, it's been the people that have been the most memorable. In fact, when I've gotten home I don't think I've told my family about any of the gear. It's always been about the awesome folks I've met.

    You forgot to mention the amsteel tow rope incident.
    But JJ's not here to poke fun at, so we wont talk about it.

    I hate group hangs...it makes me want to go out more and meet more people from the forum.

    Mrs. Bonsai's homemade brownies are on my list of all time favs.
    Skylines jokes.
    Canoebies peach cobbler in the Dutch oven.

    Great thread, I am always amazed how at the end of a hang, the corners of my mouth are kind of sore. Comes from all the smiling and laughing. Hard to put a price on that.
    Revolution is about the need to re-evolve political, economic and social justice and power back into the hands of the people, preferably through legislation and policies that make human sense. That's what revolution is about. Revolution is not about shootouts.

    This video has taught me to always bring my tow hitch to a group hang and to make sure that if I get stuck on the side of the road no cameras/video cameras are allowed. Because we all know...

    Pics or it didn't happen
