    HYOH Podcast - Episode 23 (Adam Hurst/HammockGear)

    On this month's episode, Mark and Jonathan get a chance to have a great conversation with a true veteran of the industry, Adam Hurst from Hammock Gear. He talks about his experience camping and backpacking, his experience getting started in the industry and introducing different insulating products into the market, and his ideas for new products. We also chat about Hammock Gear and its role as a cottage vendor in a growing industry. Finally, we finish with a chat about how we make sure we're prepared to (gasp) "go to ground".
    Mark and Jonathan talk about dealing with critters, and then do a short product review of the Katadyn BeFree portable water filter.

    Show Notes and Links:
    Here's that video from Shug, Setting up a Hammock and Tarp on the Ground.
    Jonathan uses an Ursack instead of hanging a bear bag, you can get that here.
    Finally, here is a link to the Katadyn BeFree water filtration system.

    Really great podcast. Was surprised that it was 2 hours, because they seemed to fly by. Stormcrow is a really fun interview to listen to. Actually picked up some insight on how to properly lay in my Incubator and my Phoenix underquilts.
    The more I learn about people, the more I like my dog.

    Looking forward to this podcast. Having recently viewed the YouTube video of Adam at Trail Days, I became a big fan.

    Mark and I were both surprised as well, I cut out over 30 minutes. It there are limits to what you can take out. Glad it helped!

    Great episode guys. Actually got a hint from Adam about over-cinching the head end and getting the quilt slipping off my shoulder. I'll have to try that next trip. Thanks!

    That's a great tip! I missed that while I went over the edits.
