    Thanks, Jodster and I were messing around with Sparlers and LED flashlights down on the dock, there was just enough moonlight to get some detail behind the spheres

    The Axe sharpening session was all Bubba! It was great, learned a ton and my Gransfors got some "TLC" from a true master of the art!

    Future note - group hang on black Friday is bad news.

    Great event. Thanks to social convenor Bubba for getting the word out. Between his kind sharpening and Tims many demos we could have put together a how-to show.

    No surprise, I had a great time again. Met lots of new people and great to see familiar faces as well. There were lots of good discussions and it was very interesting and informative seeing different gear and set-ups.

    Here are some pictures of my hammock. I use a Eureka Chrysalis with the original suspension swapped out. Over the summer I experimented with whoopie slings, toggles, Dutch buckles, an all in one system and finally buckles with straps. I haven’t decided which one I’ll settle on, but it’s great having options.
