    That is good to hear Woolvaro. At the moment there are only 3 in the confirmed category so 2 more will fit in easily.

    So here is the current list of confirmed and interested.

    Confirmed

    Wolvaroo + 1

    Interested
    Surreal_trip (not going now)
    Chenvre

    Wise move on your part, surreal_trip. There will be other hangs come the fall and winter seasons.

    Have fun on your trip and lets hope that area is group hang friendly.

    Cheers

    Two friends are confirmed. They are still debating the idea of borrowing hammocks but I think they'll probably take the tent.

    That's great Wolvaroo. Looks like the one site has filled up nicely.

    Here is the updated list of confirmed and interested people.

    Confirmed
    BrianWillan
    Wolvaroo + 3

    Interested
    Chenvre
    Bunk + 1

    That makes 5 at this point with a limit of 6 on the one site. If anyone else is attending at this point, they should book another site on the trail. Hopefully the adjacent site is still available at this point.

    If anyone is going to book another site, please PM me and I will give you the site I booked and the number of the adjacent site.

    Cheers

    Something came up with the two friends and they can't make it anymore. So back to just the two of us.

    he apologizes for any inconvenience.

    No issues, Wolvaroo. It's good that there is still a good amount of time before the hang.

    Here is the updated list of confirmed and interested people.

    There are still a few spots left on this one site. So if any of the newer hangers want to attend a group event this is your chance. The same goes for other area hangers that haven't been to a group event either.

    Cheers

    With 2.5 weeks until this hang, I thought I would give this thread a bump to the top to see if there is anymore interest.

    Cheers

    Looks like just us 3 unfortunately. It's a shame after all the hubub about everyone wanting to take a trip in August, they all ended up divided on their own.

    My fiancee and I are still in it rain or shine. We still have a seat or two to carpool someone out of Toronto if there are any last moment attendees. Unless you wanted to carpool Brian, either us with you or vice-versa.

    I don't think lack of interest was the problem. It seemed the date I picked wasn't good for many that would have otherwise joined in.

    We will have fun no matter what.

    Cheers

    Looks like my move is going to coincide with this particular trip. Best of luck to those who are going, make sure to take pics for the rest who couldn't make it that weekend!

    Ill be keeping my eyes peeled for a fall get together.

    I am curious if our brethren to the south ever come join us on these outings?
