    Dang it, wife and I will be in Chattanooga that Saturday for annual church seminar. It's where we met 38 years ago, so has sentimental value.

    I might be able to make it out on Thursday night, but not Friday night and probably not Saturday night.

    Man, I really wanted to make this one! I am now going to be visiting my Sister up near Spokane, at that time. It will be tough, but I will try and enjoy hanging in beautiful Washington. We plan to take a little backpacking trip. I have also decided to go there by train, which will be a first for me. I don't think Amtrak will let me string a hammock up in the train, but if that happens, you'd better believe that there will be pictures. Neo, thanks for all of your work organizing these. I hope to see you guys in the fall!

    Rayn and I camped out on Bear Island a couple weeks ago. I think we got the last spot on the island.

    2sticks and I will be planning to attend the August hang. We will be paddling instead of motoring this year. Weather got 2sticks hooked on the kayak last year so of course dad had to have one too

    I hope to make this one. I should be off that weekend.

    At least this time I should be able to do my exploring after setting up camp.

    I am hoping to make this. Time off is harder to come by now and has to be well planned out, but I am going to do my best to come, and who knows, if the checks are good enough I may be paddling out this time

    I suppose I will come as well. I only have a canoe, that makes me nervous!
    Afoot and light-hearted, I take to the open road,
    Healthy, free, the world before me,
    The long brown path before me, leading wherever I choose.

    Lindsay and I are planning on coming. Hopefully it will be a little warmer than the spring hangout. We might be bringing a couple of friends that want to try out the whole hanging thing.

    Bring the canoe, they were around long before kayaks in this part of the country

    Neo, I'm not sure what day I'll come down. Going to try and get my family over there for part of the day Saturday.
