    Thanks for the tip! I have been pondering zipper vs velcro and now I have another factor to the decision.
  2. ARE YOU KIDDING ME!? HELL YES! Seriously, I have...

    ARE YOU KIDDING ME!? HELL YES! Seriously, I have begged all of my climbing and backpacking friends yet noone has ever joined me. I even offered to lend them my extra climbing gear, yet nothing.

    As...
  3. Very good question. My answer is I dont know!...

    Very good question. My answer is I dont know! Haha.

    Yes, I sleep while attached to my climbing line and my most important decision is where to route the line. A side zip would be great but my...
  4. The difficult part is that this will be going on...

    The difficult part is that this will be going on a bridge hammock that doesn't use a spreader bar. Meaning, a cinch cord would work great on the foot end but it will require something different at...

    Yup. The website is TREEfool.com. I am creating it to help others see why treecamping is so exciting and to provide instructional assistance. It is still under construction but there are plenty of...

    Once you climb to the initial branch you can advance the rope by tossing your throwline higher, making a monkey fist on the end of your rope and throwing that up, or just freeclimbing the super easy...

    A tarpsock is a cylinder shaped tarp that slides over the hammock and closes at both ends. It is like sliding a giant sock on over your hammock. No need for tying it down or setting up guy lines. The...

    Nope. In my concept the silnylon portion of the tarpsock will droop past the hammock on both sides and the bottom will be made of mosquito net. The edge where the silnylon an netting meet won't have...

    Ya, I assume I will be stuck using vents. I remember a very muggy 95* trip last summer and I an only imagine that would be hell in a sock without top vents.
  10. Though all arborist ropes are static I still...

    Though all arborist ropes are static I still would feel better sleeping attached to a dynamic line. Even 6 inches of slack in a static line would be painful to fall on. I am keeping my eye on ebay...
  11. Cambrium savers are for DRT only I believe. I...

    Cambrium savers are for DRT only I believe. I have never seen anyone use a tree saver with SRT because an SRT rope is not ever creating moving friction on the tree branch.

    I am actually looking...

    Indeed! Easy deployment if the weather turns bad!



    Do you climb double rope or single rope? I have actually never climbed double rope technique. I prefer single rope because it requires less...
  13. Thanks for the idea! Mosquitoes will follow...

    Thanks for the idea!

    Mosquitoes will follow me into the tree canopy but by morning they are gone and I can climb around no problem. However, once I rappel down to the forest floor it excites them...

    Awesome! I love helping new treeclimbers get up high into the canopy! I am completely redesigning my kit for superultralight tree climbing with the hopes of being able to carry ALL of my backpacking...

    I just placed my order! 1.35oz silnylon in "Lime" color and a brown mosquito netting to contrast against the almost annoying green :cool:. I am so psyched!
  16. Ya definitely. I just finished watching that...

    Ya definitely. I just finished watching that video and he said the low temp for the night was 55* and the high temp in the sock was 65*. I wish he would have stated the high outside temp to see how...

    Stellar! My idea is quite a bit more simple but the video that Fish linked to in that thread explains some good details about socks. Thanks so much!

    That is the game plan! :D

    I plan on taking a bunch of pictures and maybe a video but if somebody has already gone through the trouble I will just follow their tutorial!
  19. Has anyone ever built a tarpish like mosquito net thingy?

    Traditional tarps don't work well for me. During the winter I use a tarpsock but in the summer this is of course way too hot :eek:.

    After a lot of day dreaming I came up with the idea of...
