    Okay just a heads up on a few items you might not want to forget.
    -Water - there is no water hook ups at this camp. Source is close (.2 miles) but must be filtered.
    -Cook pot and utensils - your normal cookset as non will be provided
    -Chair - for relaxing by the camp fire
    -bug spray - mosquitoes will be out during the day. Looks like night time temps will keep them away
    -gear - Anything cool you might want to show off. Anyone interested in a gear show and tell
    -DIY gear - I love seeing what others have done, bring it and show off your skills

    If anyone can think of anything else please post it. I an getting excited, can't wait to meet all of y'all.

    So after some deliberation I got SwampSloth cooking his Chicken and Sausage Gumbo for the Saturday evening. Its a pot luck so bring what you can.

    For entertainment anyone with a skill will be welcome to perform. If not you can listen to me drone on about all sorts of nonsense. Just ask SwampSloth and Old River Rat.

    Also I will pm the mods to change the name of this thread to 2nd Annual Louisiana Spring Hang as to not conflict with past and or future hang threads.

    la hang

    As much as I hate to say it. At this time, things are starting to look iffy for me to attend. My bride of 43 years has severe rheumatoid arthritis and gets embril shots to relieve the pain and allow movement. At this point she is about a week from the next shot and is having a hard time with her hands and shoulders. If it doesn’t get any better with advil, I will have to miss the hang and be available to help her.

    Still hoping but looking iffy.

    And I just bought all the makings for my KILLER Corn Chowder.

    So we are a day out and its looking like a wet day tomorrow but a great weekend after that. If anyone could bring dry wood it will be appreciated. I will load 20 or 30 split logs tonight, saves from having to do mush searching. Don't forget a camp chair to sit around and listen to me and my twin brother tell goofy stories. If you need a translator check with SwampSloth or old River Rat.
    Can't wait to meet you guys and eat and be merry.

    Word of warning, right after the pavement ends they dug a ditch across the road. It has a barrier for part, go close to the mud, the middle is probably 5-6in deep.
