    Well, it went like this: 14 hardy souls made the trip in spite of a less-than-favorable forecast, and were rewarded with really glorious weather on Thursday and Friday, and passable wx on Saturday (light, intermittent drizzle, mild temps). It only got snotty Saturday night after a typically excellent pot luck supper, but even that made for sweet sleep.

    Atlanta is a truly beautiful park, with an abundance of big, nicely spaced pines. It's hard to imagine a better place for hangers. And it was quiet! No planes, trains, and automobiles. Park staff went out of its way to make us feel welcome.

    Some of us paddled, some walked in the woods, breathing in the piney goodness, some just loafed, and all had a good time.

    Tim may have some pics...not sure.

    Thanks to all who hung in there, and made this a weekend to remember. Sitting under a tarp watching the rain, and drinking coffee with good people ain't no bad thing.

    Really enjoyed the hang Everyone was great! Thanks for the use of the yak Dave. Now I've got to start saving my pennies to buy one. Kat, thanks for the pointers on how to paddle one of those things. That was my first time out in one and I sure enjoyed it.

    I was a shameless mooch for several meals, but they were oh sooooo good. Mike sure enjoyed the cookin. However, I think almost everyone there was a great cook. Kat, Karen, Dave, Mike, Gary thanks for the treats. Can't say I had anything that wasn't wonderful. Shrimp to monkey bread & OG's coffee. Now I'm going to have get back on my diet.

    Good food, great conversation & information. Dave, this was first class

    We had a great time. The Thursday night late arrival was no problem thanks to Tim covering the check-in and picking a site that worked great for us and the cool temp made for great sleeping weather.

    Friday's weather really was amazing too.

    I enjoyed seeing old friends and meeting new ones as well.

    My only regret was that schedules on the home front caused us to miss the Saturday afternoon play time and nap time and one of my favorite things, the Saturday night pot luck.

    I look forward to the next time out!

    Sounds like a great time. New rule. We aren't allowed to schedule two great Texas hangs for the same weekend anymore!

    Missed seeing you guys (but did have a great time just the same)

    Missed seeing you too Caveman.

    It's a big state with lots of folks and lots of good places to go.

    Good to have choices.

    I went with the one planned first I think, but I'd love to make Lost Maples sometime and hang with the folks who went there too.

    Mike thanks once again for the Sat breakfast prepared by you, your bride and Chris. Splendid as always,and OG's bottomless coffee pot, the place and hang couldn't have been better, regardless of weather. Thanks OG for setting up the hang.

    I had a good time, and ate way too much. Thank you all for organizing it.

    Next time I'll have to see if I can grab a camp site a little farther away, or bring a generator or something loud to cover up any evidence of me talking in my sleep . I'm sure glad I wasn't having a truly embarrassing dream lol.
