    That's awesome news! In regards to the best hammock that a whole can of worms. In regards to the toughest though, I really recommend my Hennessy Jungle Safari Zip (which just so happens to be on sale right now). It's super roomy and can handle up to 350 pounds. It also has a double bottom which I wanted.

    If it wasn't for polymers(resin) you wouldn't even be talking about hammocks. o_O

    Yep. Alot guys i hang with have warbonnets and love'm. Hennesseys are pretty durable to. Most hammocks companys you can order your material in several different weights plus single or duel layers.

    I've put in for my vacation and can't wait. Something has gotten all my chickens except for one hen and rooster so no fresh eggs from me this year. I may be able to get some from a neighbor. I'm working on getting a side of bacon and some more sausage.

    So... for the first timers...
    This isn't going to be a long, protracted hike, yeah? I'd imagine not many of us feel like hiking in 30 lbs of INFI along with our regular packs...

    From the previous pics, I'd imagine we're going to be driving a majority of the way... is a cooler full of beverages and pork chops out of the question? If we're anticipating rain, are we going to be under tarp or is a canopy (again in pics) a thing we can bring with?

    Just kinda setting the scene here... let me know!

    Good question. There is no need to hike anything for this trip. The gravel driveway leads all the way up to where we camp, so a cooler full of beverages and pork chops is absolutely a great idea! In regards to the rain, we will definitely setup a canopy / tarp or two if it is raining so there will be cover. The first year we also added another canopy near the fire so that we could all sit under cover and watch the fire. With a little luck it won't rain, but if it does we will be prepared for it, and it will still be fun!

    Folks were surprised that my Honda Fit got up there last year. Just don't slow down when you get into the deep, loose leaves in the tire tracks.

    Someday I'd love to make it. But I'm about 90mi from the Pacific Coast so it'll probably be a long time before I can organize it. Luckily, I can make the Hog, Dog & Rat Mischief they do in WA. It's very cool of you to offer an open invitation to us.:thumbsup:

    Once again I got excited when I heard this was in WV (since I was raised there and still have lots of family there). However, It's a 5.5 hour drive each way. Given, I could make a pit stop at family's (@3 hours). Just saw this again, so it would be last minute, but I'm considering. I've been trying to stop spending "Busse Money" on knives. For the price of a big chopper I can buy something that has a trigger and a firing ping, and isn't a bottom feeder (LOL). I'm sure I'm not the only one here who gets Spring (Busse) fever the closer it gets to June though.

    Anyway, if there's anyone in the Western NC, Eastern TN, Southwest VA, South WVA area that might be interested in carpooling (and is a non smoker) let me know. I'll need to make a decision ASAP since I'm sure the wife will be asking any day now "what are your plans for next weekend".

    Anyone bringing wives and/or children?

    They're Girl Scouts, but not really the "no running water/toilet kind".

    P.S. I no longer own the knife in my avatar, and I do miss it;), but "NO REGRETS".

    I don't believe so, at least nobody has said that they plan to. Not that they are not welcome, but it's a special kind of wife that thinks hanging out in the woods with a random bunch of dudes swinging knives is a fun activity. :)

    We need to start thinking of what to eat when we are there! I was thinking of either making pulled pork again or perhaps smoking a brisket.

    I'm thinking of doing Hank Shaw's chili for Sat. night. Venison if I can beg/buy some off a buddy, or beef if not.
