I have a hike that I'm going on this weekend, and I have two friends that jumped on last minute. I need to fully equip them with hammock, tarp, UQ and TQ.
Last night I took a Mountain Hardware down mummy bag, and turned it into an underquilt with the old Singer and a pair of Scissor and some Grosgrain. I need some shock cord to test hang it tonight for a shake down before I let anyone hit the trail with it.
Where can I find shock cord locally? Is this something Dicks Sporting Goods or JohAnne might have in stock?
Worst case I could just string it up with paracord or something to get them through this hike, but seeing as this is a first time hammock experience for these guys, I want it to be as best as I can be so as not to turn them off from hammocking in the future. Both of these guys are seriously considering Blackbirds or Switchbacks for future hikes.
