    Gathering at MacEntyre's House Jan 7, 2012

    Smiling Face and I are hosting another gathering of hangers and hikers on Saturday, January 7, 2012. Arrive anytime after 4pm, everyone welcome to stay until 11pm, or hang your hammock overnight if you prefer. We'll grill on the deck, burn a Swedish candle, light up little wood stoves, and hang hammocks in the backyard.

    There will be lots of folks sharing experiences and discussing ideas. If you are new to hanging or to hiking in North Carolina, it will be a great opportunity to meet people and ask questions. There will be folks who know a lot about NC destinations, hiking, hanging, kayaking and more.

    Thing1 and I will make a few Mors Kochanski seats with space blanket reflector backs, arranged around an OldGringo washing machine stove, underneath a FourDog parachute canopy. It will be pleasant in any kind of weather!

    Here's the thread about the first gathering, held last year.

    Who's able to make it?

    - MacEntyre

    There's lots of trees in the backyard!

    No alcohol

    I definitely will not miss this one! I missed last year's event. If the weather is nice, might even ride the KLR!

    I am greatly tempted!

    Being as you are "only" four hours away from St Albans WV it would be just a hop, skip and jump. And as I have yet to meet ANY HF member face-to-face it would be a fine experience.

    Hey Mac,

    Would live to come but I just checked my calendar and I already did something on January 7, 2011.

    I really had a great time last year over at Mac's house. Going to check and see if we can make it again! Thanks Mac for planning a gathering.
