    Looked to be a very big turn out, must be close to a group hang record. I liked the two wooden kayaks, and that tarp with the chimney sticking out is pretty impressive. Whoevers set up that is knows how to go camping. Good stuff, thanks for the slideshow!

    What can I say? The 3rd Annual Florida Hang was "over the top!" Unlike the first two annual hangs when temps dipped into the 20's, the weather was mild ranging from 40's to 70's. but I digress.

    FOOD!!! There's no way I could remember all the food I ate and who cooked it, especially after eating at least a pound of sugar via countless cobblers. I never saw Gumbo or Richtorfla come out of the "kitchen" canopy. Gumbo produced a string of hits including her famous sausage-chicken gumbo and heavenly praline bread pudding. Richtorfla whipped up so many Dutch oven delights that he had a cleaning crew following him! His chocolate cherry cheesecake and upside down pineapple cake flooded my brain with endorphins! Blackwolf smoked pork all day and made his corn & bacon soup, both if which were indescribably delicious! Olddog added cobblers and there were dozens of culinary other contributors. Oh, and mountain man breakfasts! Every morning at least 3 Dutch ovens full of them plus Gumbo's Dutch oven biscuits with sausage gravy! And I won't even try to describe Richtorfla's method of "roasting" a 22 lb. turkey but pay attention when someone posts picture & videos of THAT one!! I'll just say it was the juiciest turkey I've ever eaten!

    Activities! Kayaking, hiking, stove making, knife sharpening, map & compass skills, paracord bracelet making, corn hole tournament, eating (oh, I covered that one already). I'm sure there were more that I completely missed! Thank you to Islander and Lil' Ricky for dropping off a dozen hikers 7 miles from camp so we could walk off at least one Dutch oven's worth of calories.

    Speaking of Islander and Lilricky, thank you Islander for once again coming up with amazing embroidered patches commemorating the hang. And thank you to Lilricky for tirelessly putting together another stupendous raffle including items from within our own hangers, from generous HF vendors and even from Sawyer and REI! Yes, the Florida Hangers are on the radar of the big boys! And thank you Timberrr, you were everywhere, involved in everything, our coach, our general manager!

    And I have to slip in a special thanks to my wife, who is not a camper, for coming along to see what the hoopla is all about! Thank you Sweetie-pie! Here's a picture for you...
