    NJ Winter Hang

    Great time this weekend.
    Friday night was spent next to the fire telling stories and laughing. Saturday morning Dutch made breakfast for the group. Yum! Lunch was Venison Meatballs and venison sausage. Thanks KrazyVan! Dinner was Venison Stew, ribs and Fillet mignon with more laughing around the fire

    Sunday morning Dutch took off early and Rev followed soon after. Those left in the AM went out to breakfast.

    I'll post more later

    Here are some pictures.

    Little green visitor

    So during dinner last night. I was standing next to the fire while most the other people were over at the food table. I decide to get a picture of those away from the fire.

    While I was focusing and trying to figure the best spot for a pic, I saw this green dot flying around the back of them. When I looked with my naked eye, it went away. Look through the camera and it's back. I first thought it was my focusing beam. Well, I took the pic and what do you know, it was on the picture.


    So I snap another picture and sure enough, there it was again but this time it moved to the side. Strange happenings.

    I may be slow... But I sure am gimpy.

    I gave me pulk a shake down under load and it didn't fare so gooe. One of theattachment eyebolts puylled out of the pole. I had set it in with epoxy. Of course pulling 240 lbs along a frozen sand road was not the most typical shake down. But I did manage to be able to move it.. rahter him... until the attatchment gave out.

    But I figure it is an easy enuf repair to make and I'd rather have it over tested and fail than undertested and not know it's capabilities. All in all I think it was an ok attempt.

    The second picture of that "ghost" looks really freaky. There were times on Friday night I saw the same thing but I thought it was just me.

    I had a great time. Can't wait till the spring hang.
