Monday morning early ….EARLY!!! left about four drove through Chicago stopped and
visited with my daughter and Bean the dog who you might have seen in a few
videos and I haven’t seen my daughter since May. And I’d stopped to do
this great intro with my brand new sony DSC HX 80 because my first one is kind
of acting a little goofy and I got down here to the gorge and I’d done this
wonderful intro and I think I left it sitting on a picnic table there I was
going on making this big talk about picnic tables and how lucky we are in
this country to have Technic tables at every rest area picnic tables all over
the place fact is I left my camera somewhere in
Tennessee I’m gonna be a big person about it and not whine about it too much
I’m just going to take the hit it’s gone I’m a tripod and at least I had this and

  1. Amazing times in the woods shug thank you for your time once again. Iโ€™m going on my first winter hang of this year tonight and watching this video has filled me with excitement for it all over again. All the best to you and his grace the maple king

  2. gee wilikers! pork butt bbq short bread and liver mush?! you would think shug planned this whole thing!! I feel your pain about the camera, did i hear correctly that it was a new one? Atleast you wont do that again!! love them vids ya do. but i especially love when carl shows up!

  3. Glad to see you back. Getting ready to buy a Hammock later on for my adventures in 2020. probably a Dutchware. But not sure what make?
    Pine Grove Furnace State Park here in Pa. also have hammock hangs like this from my understanding. I hope you would make one some day?
    I hope the hound in the background didn't water Mapel Kings leg?

  4. I'll bet sometime in the future every one of those kids will be taking their kids out camping because of the experience they just had!

  5. Oh happy days, the hickory brothers are reunited. He doesnโ€™t do it for the applause, you can tell by the performance ๐Ÿคฃ

  6. Sorry about your camera, Shug. But, The Hickery Brothers in the Linville Gorge! The Maple King! Yella-man! Medaglia D'Oro Instant Espresso! Purdy boils! The entrancing pitter-patter of rain on the fly! WBs!!! For a moment, all is right in the world, or at least in Sector 7. Looks like you all had a good time. Thanks for taking us along.

  7. Trail Majik . . . that's what whomever will call the camera they find AAAND they will sure nuff appreciate it. Thanks for the tag along Mr. Emery

  8. Long live The Maple King! The only thing I didn't like about this video is that it ended to EARLY! Who is playing the oboe? AT least I think it's an oboe. Thanks for the video Shug!

  9. I miss this hang, live in Charlotte so it is a relatievely short drive for me. I am hoping to be there next year and not miss you and the maple king.

  10. Love me some โ€œYarrieโ€ as we say it. A few years back some folks were following a Sasquatch in that area. Maybe the Maple King can join forces and help locate it.

  11. Ha the maple king was holding up what looked like a Sassafras leaf. Looks like good times! Ok his second leaf is definitely a maple leaf ๐Ÿ™‚

  12. Believe it or not there are a lot of honest people in the world. Perhaps someone turned the camera in at the place you lost it. Worth a check anyhow.

  13. Was that Cajun? And Phantom Grappler? Hi, buddies! I have to put Yates down for next fall & break out of SC. So many trees! … And then you find out Shug has family…. With a birch hat and a willow switch to discipline the unruly? I will be kind to my trees.

  14. Nothing like hanging out (pun intended ) with friends , to take the sting out of losing something cherished . Good see the Hickory Bros. together again .

  15. Maple King may not have collected any acid rain, but I I think he may have found some mushrooms. Nice to see the children in the woods. At 8:30, I thought maybe you got back into doing short films like the day of the wandering hangers.

  16. I am sure the moment anyone watches that video and sees it's you, they will make contact! please let us know when that happens!!!

  17. Ah! I was there last weekend! We left on Monday. Telling my friend I had heard about the gorge from one of your videos. And we probably missed you by one day.

  18. Oh…. that sunrise at 6:10. Just makes me wanna drive down there and see it myself. And the kids…… the children….. precious and PRICELESS !!

  19. It was so good to see the Hickory Brothers unite again. Great to see the Maple King still looking good after all this time. Thanks Shug!

  20. Is this get together open to any/everyone? 30 mins from my house and I wouldโ€™ve loved to come. Great to see a video. Thanks for the Entertianment!!

  21. Loved to hear what Chris from Sung Industries wants to do with current powerbanks and portable electronics! Very cool!

  22. Bean!!!? No Bean pictures or vid!? That ainโ€™t right, Shug. Maybe thanksgiving heโ€™ll show up. ๐Ÿ˜ข glad you had a great time thought. ๐Ÿ‘Œ

  23. Dang! Hate I missed it. I'm literally 25 minutes away in Asheboro, NC. I'm a contractor for the US Special Forces. The SF Students parachute in and hike Uwharrie, than my Dad, Pineland Bob picks them up and brings them into the G Base. I instruct on Taking Down & Hacking into enemy Telco-Data & Cell Towers. This is the only place in the world that we do Pineland Robin Sage Phase IV Training. 11 Counties in NC become a Fictional Country for the SF Students to implement real life scenarios. Look us up. It's been done here for 50yrs. Hope you had a blast in our backyard.

  24. How to greatly increase the chances of getting lost cameras and memory cards back.
    Create a text file called "Reward!", offer anyone who finds the card a free replacement mem card and costs for returning.
    Include a couple of email or phone numbers. Drop it into the root folder of the memory card.
    Most people are honest, and will return lost items if they have a clue to the owner's contact info.

  25. Great video… Hickory Bros… That's not a microphone, it's a titanium poop trowel. The Maple King sitting on his murdered family. Awesome to see that many kids out there in the woods. Thanks for sharing, take care Shug.

  26. Been think'n . I think there should be a Anti- Maple King . An evil ,woods entity, that leaves trash in the woods and disrespects nature . Maybe something based off Cappy ๐Ÿ˜€ MK could lecture the evil entity in front of the kids about being kind to the forest ๐Ÿ˜€ You know , a forest baddie !! Staging would be more work though ): I guess I should say , a twist on Cappy .

  27. So glad you had your gopro backup camera! (broke my first hx80 and wanted to cry too.. hopefully yours will find it's way back to you). Thanks for the entertainment!!

  28. Well crap! I missed Shug and the Yates hang! This is my stomping grounds. Been hiking and camping here for 30 years. My music schedule had me very busy this weekend but I would have at least stopped for the day. I have to start paying more attention to the forums again.

  29. Clearly that "Maple King" dude has been exposed to MK ultra with this Ren & Stimpy log video for DAYS…. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-fQGPZTECYs
