    Preparations almost complete.

    Only need to wake 2 more times before I'm off to "The No Underquilts Hang".
    Thanks, FLRider. Can't wait to see all of you there.
    Finally just got everything dry from my last misadventure. Need to go through my food bag and decide what's going with me and what's not...food prep today, hopefully...going to need to go to the grocery store tomorrow or Saturday, either way...

    Yep. Clothing application needs to be renewed for me, as well; I figure that between sweat and the rain, it was probably the equivalent of six washings on the last hang...

    I'll be there for sure!

    As far as permethrin goes, my local Army/Navy surplus store sells the Sawyer brand treatments, as does WallyWorld. WallyWorld's may be in with the laundry and cleaning supplies rather than the camping gear, though (that's where mine had it at first, though it's in the camping gear now). (Also, it's one of the few spots where anyone beats WallyWorld on price; the surplus store has 24 oz for $16.99, whereas WallyWorld has the 12 oz for $9.99.)

    Hope to see you there!

    NOAA forecast for the hang, keyed to where Hidden Pond actually is (note that I've had this forecast be up to 10* F off before in Ocala, so take it with that in mind): http://forecast.weather.gov/MapClick...ite=jax&unit=0

    I was looking forward to meeting y'all in person finally but that will have to wait till the next hang. two or three months away I think Fl Rider said.

    Till then - Happy trails to you. Try to stay cool and snore in a hammock for me!
    I'm very sorry to hear you lost your friend. My family and I will hold a special prayer for you and and your friends family.
    Enjoy and have fun with your family, before they have fun without you

    Try to find the stuff without petroleum distillates if you can. It has almost no scent at all, and won't harm hammock fabrics.

    We bought Martin's, http://www.amazon.com/Martins-Permet.../dp/B001EVKCKM from Amazon, and we like it better than Sawyers. We had to dilute it ourselves, though.

    Thanks for the thought and prayers. I'll be praying for the group's safety as well. It is nasty in Ocala right now. Lots of yellow and orange on the radar and now was the time several (including me) had planned to hike in to Hidden Pond.
