We would like to stack claim on the Bluenose Climbers post. We wold also like to post up a Eddie Bauer Deluxe Internal Frame Backpack
and a camelbak 24oz. water bottle. Well this past weekend my Son and I had a Scout Spring Camporee. The Troop pulled out the tents and I was determined to use the Double nest. So I packed everything up and was loading our gear. When I hear my eleven year old first year Boy Scout ask Daddy where is my Nest and tarp. I told him that it was going to rain and storm and that I did think he would want to hang this weekend. And at that point he said the funniest thing ever. “Daddy Shug would hang in his hammock wouldn’t he?” Now tell me how could I argue that? So I loaded up his single nest and tarp and off we went. We had some big storms Saturday and we hung high and dry, while the Troops tents took in a little water here and there. My Son said he had the best nights sleep ever on a campout. I to have to say I slept great all weekend. So big thanks to Shug for the inspiration for my Scout and I to want to be a forever hammock camper. By the way Shug he instead that he have hot coco instead of coffee and breakfast from is “Hommock”. I will upload some picks when I get home in the morning. By the way I used the slap straps and I (made them work). But boy was it a fight to get them to work. Thanks again to all my forum brothers for the helpful tips. And to add a little bit of gold to the whole weekend, almost all the other Scout upon returning from this trip asked their parents if they could get a hammock. So that was a big bragging moment for the Littlebogg. After I posted this Littlebogg was asked by the troop to come and talk on camping in a hammock. He did this last night. It was very neat to hear how much he has learned from reading the posts here. He is not old enough to use his own loggin so he just uses mine. By the way he is asking me to write thiis for him and in over my shoulder as I am typing this and says hi to all of our forum pals.
