    For the walk out on Sunday morning, I will have a FRS radio on channel 1 encase anyone has trouble finding us.

    I'll do this again on the camp weekend. Just in case.

    Hey Tumbleweed, PM sent.

    I just drove in from Chicago, and after being surrounded by 12,000 wanna be super stars (some of whom were awesoem talents and nice people) and surrounded by skyscrapers...I need some woods time. So tomorrow I am going to head into the forest unit. RBDodger and I plan to hike in from my house and be at the first creek by 9:30.

    Wiscoman, ButWhat2, and Tumbleweed you are welcome to join us, if you park in the north parking lot we will be about 3/4 of a mile in around 9:30 am. We will probably scout that area first. I will drop my pack on the edge of the trail so you can see where we are...look forward to meeting all of you.

    What a great way to wind down the afternoon. RBDodger brough out a skeeter beater pro and I liked it so much my pants ripped open... ask anyone. Tumbleweed pulled a pulk and Wiscoman and Butwhat2 snow shoed in. Tumbleweed and RB made cocoa and coffee while I napped in my blackbird. Then I made italian sausage and riggatoni for lunch. The "Easy skillet" meals from stouffers, and Bertolli... they are VERY tasty, i bet you could break them down in Ziplocks to make individual meals, but it is definately going on the meanu.

    Photos coming... and thought of the day, if we can get five hangers together just for the scouting triop how big is this thing going to get? LOL

    Thanks again to the guys for doing all the work while I napped in my blackbird. Awesome day, my friends.

    What a great time! It was great meeting a couple more hangers and sitting by the fire. I think it is going to be an awesome place for a hang. Kevins pants did rip, not so sure he can blame it on the hammock but.... haha
    Hope to do it again soon guys!

    It was a great way to spend the day, just hanging out with some good people. We couldn't have asked for better weather. We have a good spot for next months hang. We might have some water issues, but we will get it worked out.

    Nice meeting you guys.

    Central WI Hammock Hang Prepday

    Had a great day scouting for the First Annual Central Wisconsin Hammock Hang Event.

    Campfire, Italian Sausage with Roasted Peppers & Rigatoni, Coffee, Hot Chocolate, good conversation, BushBuddy, and best of all, hammocks to see & discuss.


    -and this was just prep for the actual event.

    Took a dozen pics, now I need to learn how to post them. Not at all easy if you are older than dirt.
