    OFFICIAL June 7-9th NEHHA Hang planning thread

    If any new people are thinking of making this their first group hang I say please do everything you can to make it. My wife and I went to the winter NEHHA hang as total strangers. The outsider, stranger feeling lasted all of 15 min. You arrive as strangers with a common bond and leave as friends waiting for the next hang to be planned.

    The dude had a telescope....a real telescope at the winter hang! If you are on the fence about coming, please do!!!

    I plan on bringing the telescope with me, packing the boys around it is where the challenge is going to be. Saturn should be high in the sky by then at a decent time of night. I will plan better and have other cool stuff to look at for anyone interested.

    It took you 15 minutes? You must be shy.
    I told my co-workers that it was like meeting up with friends I didn't know I had.

    I am so glad you guys felt like this. It was our goal to make everyone feel welcome and wanted. That weekend was one of my most favorite weekend to date. Come one come all you are all extended family.

    That was definitely a highlight of mine and look forward to it at the next hang.

    One of my friends use to say that a stranger is just a friend you haven't met yet.

    That first 15 minutes was used to lug a car battery to my setup.

    ===> Ultralight backpacking hammock - $175

    Ultralight down top quilt and Underquilt - $400

    Ultralight Cuben fiber tarp - $150

    40 lb car battery to light-up the string of pink Flamingos surrounding the hammock - PRICELESS!

    Good to hear, I'd have been embarrassed to show up with the toy I call a telescope
