    Glad to see you back. Remember, if there are no pictures it didn't happen. ;-)

    It happened. Until my phone died.

    Trail head. We were headed to Dutcher Notch but knew with two 12 year-old girls in tow, we weren't going that far. We did however manage to go about 3.5 miles in and they performed like champs.


    Getting ready...


    Finally under way with Kurd, Rat and Z bringing up the rear. Z's pack must have weight close to 55 pounds. He's as strong as an ox and didn't mind carrying almost 15 pounds of water. Yes, you read that correctly, 15 pounds of water.


    Representin' with some HammockForum bling.


    Some beauty shots:








    Time for lunch on the trail. If you look closely you can see how huge Z's pack is. On the right you can barely make out my Aarn Mountain Magic 55 which they no longer make. Carried way too much stuff like a dream.


    Three of the four bridges were destroyed in storms of late. It was kind of strange to see such new structures.




    Expert work by some beavers.


    And then the clouds rolled in.


    Kurd and Rat "roughing it" on their smartphones.


    The rain came steady and then heavy and my phone died. The next morning I had a quick chance to snap of pic of the hammock setup and then my phone died for good.

    In the foreground is my MacCat Standard in Spinn with Spinn Grizz Beaks (thanks 2QZQ) and my Superfly which Z used in the background.



    All in all a lot of fun and the girls enjoyed themselves for the most part. The next time they hike though they'd like someone else to carry their packs.

    I had fun taking my daughter and her friend hammock camping last month. They didn't have to hike in, so they complained less. It is an experience I would recommend to anyone.

    We typically head to the Colgate lake trail. Easy to get to, lots of good scenery, plenty of water and a lot of options to camp.
