    Video: NCT Northern Hang Chequamegon State Forest Wisconsin

    June 11th .....Along with 11 other hammock fanatics from hammockforums.net we headed into the ever-so-green and piney woods on the North Country Trail in Chequamegon State Forest in Northern Wisconsin. We had three Hennessy hammocks, one DIY Bridge hammock , a Clark hammock and the rest were Warbonnet BlackBirds. One was a tenter.
    Twelve people who had never met as a whole but we all know each other from the hammockforums postings so it seemed like camping with old friends.
    First night Thursday June 11 we all hiked in a short bit and made a "get aquainted" camp. We all arrived at different times and decided to all carry in extra goodies for a huge covered dish feast. Pasties, Venison dogs and bacon, Pork BBQ, the best slaw ever by Walking Bear, Thorwren's famous Stew, Fruit compote, brownies, Coffee Crisps and more. Stuffed thinking about it.
    In the morning we shuttled cars to the end of the trail (one hour) then back (one hour).... repacked into our lightest packs and off we all went for about a 9.9 mile hike to camp 2 on the Marengo River. Brilliant night and another member drove 7 hours to walk in and find us. We did not see him until morning. Dedication to the cause....
    Saturday morning off for around a 10 mile hike. Started to thunder and rain and as we all spread out into groups that day we made camp in a campground to be near cars as some had to leave fairly early in the morn.
    Plenty of hammocks...... plenty of hammock gear .... a wee bit of "Sling Blade"... and plenty of laughs and joyful bounty...!
    Thanks to all who attended .... I had a wonderful ol' time with ya'll in the piney woods!

    Maybe Shug and Stormcrow should combine their footage to make a full length feature film. Dutch, his cornrows and his bling would be the star.

    Lots of great conservation and viewing of gear. Conversation was never lacking on the hang. It was my first one, and if all of them are this great and within a two day drive I will try to make it. It was well worth the 12 hr drive from Nebraska.
