Good stuff Papa. :)
IF a big bag of feathers worked well, we would use it.
What folks are saying is you are going about insulating the hammock wrong. Period.
There are diy guides to building a quilt. Look...
Do more research.
Hang the hammock, unzip net and pull the amsteel RL down firmly to seat the knot back into place. It should slide back just fine. The diamond knot just keeps the RL from slipping all the way thru the...
Tell us about them mukluks.
Ebay has rebuild...
Auto windshield reflector. Cheap as $1.00 and up.
Thanks, guys. I may be out and about soon.
How'd the reflector oven cinnamon rolls turn out?
Now that's a pair of boots. Mr. Kinney does it right!
Did you notice the colors your wearing? Gargoyle on your feet, no wonder your feet are happy! :lol:
1. Nope not needed.
2. Yes. Many trim the edge in gg.
3. This one is a NO. I would suggest cutting out your design in a another color and stitching it on. Fabric paints and the like are...
Here's an old thread.
I started like shug did, with the foot zipper open. But then went and cut the footbox open. Later, I added shockcord to both ends of the sleeping bag (grosgrain loops stitched...
It was 7* this morning. -10* with the wind chill.
You'll need to change your name to Chilled Ramen. :laugh:
You don't put the fixed eye over the toggle. You put the adjustable side over the toggle.
Welcome. I found your dogs. :laugh:
Is it new zing it on your new tarp?
I would follow the grizz beak pattern for removable doors. It allows the doors to seal over/around the tarps edges and leaves a gap for the hammock suspension. Look also at the winter tarp designs...
A post in the middle. Two spots to hang.
If you dont want a post, build a A-frame from two 2x4's, hang near one tre and over the a-frame. As TP mentioned, anchor down to the base of far tree.
Super Bowl doesn't start till 6:30pm. Sunday ?
This is one time you should sew first and cut later.
As you sew and roll your precut panels, the seams at the ends wont line up. You may need to trim after getting all three panels connected fully....
The main suspension of your quilt is elastic. It was designed this way so that the quilt floats under you and follows your body and its curves, whether you're diagonal or not.
On the foot end, it...
Two hooks in the wall.
A convenient place to practice at home has done me more good than any other gear. I could nap, fit new hammocks and quilts, even deploy tarps. Hanging indoors can be done...
Gravity is free. Use it to your advantage. Hang the foot end higher, some go as much as a foot.
I like the visual of the old hammock vs. new hammock. :lol:
Carbon fiber doesn't like being drilled.
When it does break, it is a jagged mess.
Find a better solution.
For single digits, you'll need a quality under quilt, rated for your expected temps. The SS isn't rated for single digit temps.
Condensation can accumulate in any non-breathable insulation system....
Hot water bottle or two. Toss them into the hammock 20-30 minutes before bedtime. They will warm the quilts dramatically. Use them during the night to keep you warm.
CCF pad. You're using an eno,...
Try 4 wraps. It may grab. If not, you'll have to use zing it.
If you want reflectiveness, just tie some short loops of reflective cord on your tarp tieouts.
Truly, a labor of love.
Cant wait to see your hand sewn tarp too.
The Smurf's have a sleep number hammock, but its a 19 month wait-time. :lol:
Briefs or boxers??
There are various qualities of windshield reflectors.
Some are really thin and fragile, but they pack smaller.
Thick ones will be warmer, crinklier, and pack larger.
Yep, you're good with the Spectra.
Old timers here all used paracord.
But it is not the best...any more!
Science/technology has created better line.
Use your paracord (many do still..for bracelets.) but as Rolloff mentioned, it...
Just so all transactions are conducted in public. It keeps folks from buying/trading on the side..
Posting an "I'll take it" or discussing options is for all to see.
So where is the raccoon s'posed to sleep????:scared:
So, I did not order and would like to place a new order for a synthetic tee in size gargoyle (with wing holes):rolleyes::laugh: ?
Is this offer open to new orders??
Camping in the canyon is allowed by permit only to control the numbers. Like any major park, the volume of people can do serious impact.
In the photo you will see a hammock tied to the...
I don't think you'll get many responses.
"Averages" in winter gear are too varied. I will pack what is needed for temps expected.
You can look at each vendors weight chart and collect info on 0*...
I do believe you have a legitimate complaint.
All gear does vary from raw dimensions to finished dimensions. You cant make a 60" wide quilt from 60" wide fabric, unless you add a seam. Hemming and...
Email that picture to park officials with a date and time stamp. Post that pic everywhere on the net you can that has to do with the Canyon.
If we can't educate this hanger, at least effect...
NO!!! That's what happened at Lake Geneva.
Jeessh, Red! And to think you were just getting that hammock broke in..:rolleyes:
Farewell, old hammock.:crying:crying
May your fabric be used in many a stuff sack.
I cant wait to see what...
Those falls look inviting!
Is that your truck? Those Aussie trucks look rugged.
There are hundreds of ways to hang your hammock.
Use what works for you. Period.
Loops should be a finished length of 6-8 inches.
Personally I don't use loops or shackles. I just attach the...
Heavy snowloads can be a cause of tarp wear/damage. If big storms are expected (snow, wind, freezing rain), I suggest you bring the gear inside for the day.
And the potential of theft. If your...
