    Gathering at MacEntyre's House, Groundhog Day, Feb 2, 2013

    Smiling Face and I are hosting another gathering of hangers and hikers on Saturday, February 2, 2013. Arrive anytime after 4pm, everyone welcome to stay until 11pm, or hang your hammock overnight if you prefer. We'll grill on the deck, burn a few Swedish candles, light up little wood stoves, hang hammocks in the backyard, and cook breakfast the next morning.

    There will be lots of folks sharing experiences and discussing ideas. If you are new to hanging or to hiking in North Carolina, it will be a great opportunity to meet people and ask questions. There will be folks who know a lot about NC destinations, hiking, hanging, kayaking and more.

    Thing1 and I will rig something up to make sure we can sit around the fire even if there is precip. Might even set up a huge Tensegrity Hammock Stand! There's plenty of room inside as well. It will be pleasant in any kind of weather.

    Here's the thread about the 2011 gathering, and here is the one we held last year.

    Who's able to make it?

    - MacEntyre

    P.S. Cooldays, don't bring a chair... the one you left last year is still here!

    P.P.S. Folks from out of town can arrive any time they wish!

    Bring your kids!
    Bring your gear!
    Hangers and Tenters welcome!
    Gorge Rats welcome!
    Bring food if you like!
    There's lots of trees in the backyard!

    Feel free to bring alcohol and drink in moderation

    Sounds great Mac ... wish I could make it but won't be back from "eating Chinese food" if you know what I mean! Take lots of pictures!

    WARNING: Will discuss Rhurbarb Strawberry Pie and Livermush at random.

    Maybe......If I can find some other activities to keep me busy before and after

    600 + miles for me also

    It's not to arrive safely at the grave in a well preserved body,
    But rather to skid in sideways, totally worn out, shouting,
    Woo Hoo!....What a Ride!

    I'd sure enjoy this MacIntyre! Will let you know more as the date approaches.

    "Climb the mountains and get their good tidings.
    Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees.
    The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy,
    while cares will drop away from you like the leaves of Autumn."
