    Talking Canada>Newfoundland>August - First Annual HOTR - Hang On The Rock

    The hang will be in Central Newfoundland, mid to late August. Details to follow but it will be kid friendly.

    Post suggestions for locations, activities, and interest here. I will add details to this post as time marches on.

    Good times.

    Location:
    • Canada>Newfoundland
    • Likely around the Lewisporte/Gander area (Central Newfoundland)
    • Precise location TBA


    Activities (Suggested):
    • Hang the hammocks
    • Pitch the tents - gasp!
    • Make fun of those in tents
    • Build fire(s)
    • Show and tell / sell /trade - gear, suspension, hammocks, quilts, etc...
    • Keep kids entertained - need help on this one - I will have 2, possibly 3 kids under 10, and likely a dog
    • Others - please contribute - these are my initial thoughts only and not set in stone


    Other thoughts:
    • Group buy on a few things like Amsteel, dutch hardware, others?? Distribute group buy stuff...
    • Quick splicing workshop
    • Nature hike - with mid hike trail hang and lunch
    • Swimming - location dependent
    • Movie night for the kids - location dependent I can get a projector if there is power or someone brings a generator

    Ooops... I did not follow the appropriate nomenclature.

    Canada>Newfoundland>Central Newfoundland (around Lewisporte/Gander area)

    Newfoundland is affectionately known as "The Rock" because it is an island that is.... rocky. Worms have been spotted with diamond bit helmets - true story!

    This sounds like fun. I have some flight credit I need to use this summer and my wife has been urging me to go to Newfoundland as I've never been there. Let me figure it out tonight and get back to you.

    Geocaching! I can't believe that I did not add this activity as a possible on the list.

    Hey tysonb,

    I really hope we can get this to happen, I've been a while trying to find a few other hangers in Newfoundland, a rare find indeed.
    Take care,
    Bluefin

    Thinking of either 6 7 8 or 13 14 15 of September. Bluefin is offshore until then. I am all over the US from mid to late August.

    Sound good?
