Took my daughter hammock camping for the first time.
My daughter had been asking to go to the Adirondacks to do some wilderness exploring for the past couple of months. She has never been camping and I suggested a shorter trip closer to home first in order for her to see if she was really ready for it.
My friends and I were planning to head to Little Rock City in southwest New York and I asked the girls (daughter and her friend) if they wanted to go. They said yes and so it was. I had extra hammocks and they were told there were no facilities in a state forest and they would have to rough it. I showed my daughter the first Shug video which she watched in silence, but showed no interest in continuing with them.
We arrived at Little Rock City and did a quick look around. It seemed promising, so we started to set up.
I was tying the Marlin Spike Hitch on my daughter's suspension, and behind me I hear her say "On the knot, not the toggle" repeatedly. I turn around to face her and she says "Do you want me to s h o w y o u i n s l o w m o t i o n?" to which we both started laughing.
Everyone had a good time, except for Dan who had the faulty ENO Guardian and left. We explored for the remainder of the morning and then there was a thunderstorm in the afternoon, but my daughter commented how the sound of thunder echoing through the hills was quite unique.
