    Great trip!

    Thank you all for an awesome baptism into true cold temperature winter hammocking. I really enjoyed using the snowshoes for the first time and testing the gear that I have accumulated. Hope everybody made it home safe and sound... looking forward to the trip report.

    Cheers

    If you guys did get -31.1 C (-24F), I think that is now the coldest group hang temperature record.

    Cheers

    Dag-nabbit!!!! Now I'm twice as irked at myself for not being able to get out and join you guys!!!! -23.9*F/-31.1*C!! That sounds awesome!!! I have to know, were the trees cracking and popping like last year?

    It's definitely an EGL record low, but I still think Mick's -47*F/-43.8*C takes the cake, followed by Turnerminator's -34.6*F/-37*C, Almosa's -29*F/-33.8*C and Shug's -26*F/-32.2*C. -44*C!! Tht's nuts!!! (see Coldest Hang Records)

    Come on heal knee - HEAL!!!
