Gideon, yes, I thought we should wait until it was a bit warmer to do the Taum Sauk section of the OT. I'd like to do that with as little weight on my back as possible!
With beauty all around you, may you walk.
Met some guys from the forum at hawn state park last weekend .would like to try to get involved with the group . If I can I would like to join you at Cuivre river in march . May not have hammock by then but have everything else I need and would like to get some ideas on hammocks and suspension systems for them. Thanks campalot
Campalot, looking forward to seeing you at the Cuivre River hang. If you want I will bring along my extra hammock for you to give it a try (Island Bay Portable Hammock). Depending on the weather we will need to see if an underquilt is required. I only have one underquilt right now. We could set you up with some pads though I have 7 or 8 pads to choose from (air,closed cell,foam...)
Campalot, I do not have a tarp setup for it yet, however I us a Walmart tarp with mine and it works fine for now I just purchased a whoopie sling system and should have it by next week. That would just leave the clips for the tarp which I believe I have a second pair in camping room I will look into it and let you know.
Oh and as far as the weight goes I just checked the manufactures web site and you are in luck 260 lbs capacity just don't eat to many doughnut between now and then
Hammock's manufactures website
It is not the greatest Hammock in the world there is no bug netting but I think we will still be okay in March.
Digitizer , how big of a tarp would you recommend ? Would probably start out with that type myself . Let me know if I need to purchase anything for the suspension system or other things for setup. Thanks campalot
It was good to meet you Campalot; great boys! Looking forward to seeing you at the next hang! They're a good bunch and I've learned a lot from them.
Enjoy the new week!
