    Live from the Catskills

    I have neither been on HF much lately nor have I hung in a while. I really needed to get out so a neighbor and I took our daughters for a little dad and daughter time. The girls - Kurd and Rat - did really well on the hike despite moaning "are we there yet?" and "how much farther?". Z (Rat's dad) and I humped way too much food for the four of us and the heavens opened up about 2 hours ago. Kurd and Rat are tent-bound while Z and I are lounging in hammocks. Z is using my WBBB and immediately commented on its comfort. He's Usig my incubator and a sleeping bag and my Superfly. I'm in my DIY 1.1 nylon with dynaglide whoopies that Lazy River Road along with my Te-Wa UQ, Burrow and my MacCat Standard in Spinn. We're all dry but we'll see how the night goes.
    Good to be back on HF with some regularity.

    Where in the Catskills are you guys? I've been up there a couple of times with my daughters this summer and have really enjoyed it.

    Thanks 2Q, the saddle is feeling good. I used a set of the Grizz Beaks you made for me and they worked perfectly.

    Just got home, pics will go up tomorrow.
