    Good weather for a hang!

    I check kotatv.com for a weather report. This weekend looks great! They predict an end to the great deluge. One side of sweet corn headed west! Packed, stacked and git it. I'm singing that "Smokey and the Bandit" song by Jerry Reed... "West bound from town, put the hammer down and truck it...
    We got a long way to go and there's 4 days to get there! Put the hammer down and let this buggy roll!" Yeah.

    geeez......thanks for getting that song stuck in my head

    yep, forecast says, highs in the mid 70's and lows in mid 50's with only a 10% chance of rain for friday night.......looking forward to the fresh corn, should go awesome with the burgers and brats!

    not 100% sure on the number, from what is on the spreadsheet there should be 9 of us hangers there

    i have sent out a pm to one person on there because i haven't seen any post from him lately but haven't heard anything back yet

    i am going to have some family up there too that will be camping, that was why we were organizing the food, didn't want anyone to feel like they had to feed people from my family, with them there will be about 15 total, so if you still want to make the beans and kabobs the number for that will be about 15

    so we had the hang this weekend and i am going to be posting a few short videos of the event on here in the coming days, gonna try and post one every day or close to it, have about 6 or so i want to get up and this is the first installment



    and would also like to say what an absolute pleasure it was meeting all of you.......i'm not always the best at this kind of thing, but wanted to let everyone know who attended how much i enjoyed your company and meeting you, it was truly an awesome experience for me meeting and being able to share the weekend with you all, you were all fantastic company sodakgrrl and i are already planning next years and hope everyone will return!

    i know we didn't have quite enough food.........but hopefully that won't dissuade anyone
