    I'll throw in a bunch of yellow poly rope. We used to use it to rig tarps in Roan Mountain State Park. Rain would fall out of the trees there for 2 days after the rain stopped.
    Most of us end up poorer here but richer for being here. Olddog, Fulltime hammocker, 365 nights a year.

    Well the details are falling into place,

    The wood delivery is scheduled.

    Measures have been taken to assure we can still gather in the common area, regardless of weather.

    Hiking trips have been laid out (Thank you Mad777)

    Kayak Trips have been scheduled (Thank you ItsAndy)

    Patches have arrived (Thank you Islander)

    Major feedings have been planned (Thank you Black Wolf, Olddog, Mad777, Islander and Richtorfla)

    Raffle Items requested and received (Thank you LilRicky and all who contributed to the raffle)

    Navigation Classes Planned (Thank you Shannan)

    Stove making workshop scheduled w/materials included (Thank you Timberrr and Olddog)

    Cornhole Tourney in the works (Thank you LilRicky)

    Kids activities planned (thank you FloridaRider and Olddog)

    Extra Charcoal purchased for DO's and three large bottles of hot sauce.

    Yep..I'd say things are coming together nicely and that there should be something for everyone!

    I was packing but ran out of space. I was loading up the little Honda and when I go to the cooler, I ran out of room. I looked back to see my sleeping bag, hammock, food and guitar still in the driveway. Now that I see what's been planned, I took everything out except my spoon and plate. Maybe I should add the guitar!

    lol..I feel your pain.


    Timberrr and I decided to invest in a tow package for the jeep and ended up buying a hitch mounted cargo carrier. With 3 yaks on the roof and the back end loaded to the hilt, we will probably look like the Beverly Hillbillies going down the road.

    Time to see how much gear you can pack into your kayak. It's a good pressure test for your bonding work.
    Enjoy and have fun with your family, before they have fun without you

    Agreed. Yall aren't allowed into the dropoff until a camera/tripod has been set up to greet you

    I'm still buying gear!

    So many trees, so little time...
    We follow where the Swamp Fox guides,
    His friends and merry men are we;
    And when the troop of Tarleton rides,
    We burrow in the cypress tree.
    The turfy hammock is our bed,
    Our home is in the red deer's den,
    Our roof, the tree-top overhead,
    For we are wild and hunted men.

    Those things are awesome! I finally picked one up last year. Now I'm wishing I would've found one that's about 5x10.

    So that means that 2 different cars will be bringing rocking chairs for story time around the fire. There will be heart attacks in gramweenieville next weekend
