    Smile Video: 2012 Frozen Butt Hang: -19.8 coldest group hang!

    I had a blast on this group hang! We had 15-20 crazies out there in the cold Minnesota winter ready to earn the title of "Frozen butt hanger." Everyone did awesome out there and we set a new Hammock forums record for a -19.8 hammock hang.

    A big thanks to Four dog, Paul and Snipen for organizing the whole thing. Also a thank you to Book for running the carving station. Man, that was so much fun.

    We had toasty fires, great food, awesome company and even bigfoot showed up. I can't wait to get out there and do it again.

    Thanks for watching!

    We sure did cheat. lol It wasn't the sleeping in the hammock that stopped us from being out there. It was the -15 3/4 mile walk to the hammock that did. lol

    When he flipped me the bird I was like, "That is for sure going in the video." lol

    Thanks man. I'm going to make the spoon all pretty and give it to the girlfriend as part of her Valentine's day present... and to suck up to her for future hiking trips.

    Thank you. I am going to touch up on it this week. That was the first time I had actually hung it up and I am filled with ideas on how to fix it. Plus, field testing it is a great time too.

    Man, I'm really sorry I missed this one.

    I don't know if it's different in other parts of the state, but I was razzed to no end when first coming up here for saying "negative 5" when it was 5 below or "minus 5". I will not subjugate you to that same razzing, Fronkey.

    Use a bottle for the middle of the night relief. There's no reason you have to get out of your warm sleep system when you have a perfectly good bottle to use. Just make sure it's got a wide mouth.
    If your lucky enough to be outdoors, your lucky enough!

    Thank you so much for bringing us along. Man, what a hang. But the socks sucks I should think. Trapping all that moisture. No wonder Shug sleeps in the open fresh air.

    Great, great report.
