Good stuff. I've been riding again lately,,fun.
I hope someone takes you up on your offer so you can feel relaxed on your first trip. Its good to be cautious when entering new territory. Having said that, as someone who lives in bear country,...
Looks like you found the spot. The SW interests me, but generally too hot for this northern cowboy.
The only stove jacks i've used have been from snowtrekker.
Nice video shug. Sunshine in the woods by the river,,doesn't get much better.
Great video, thanks
Great lookin place,,thanks
Another option for camping is forest service rec sites. Not as busy, not as developed, usually placed by some natural feature like a creek or waterfall , lake etc.. Usually don't accommodate RV's and...
Seeing as your on a motorcycle i would spend some time googling motorcycle trips in the Canadian Rockies and see if you can glean any tips.
I've been through the Banff area numerous times on a...
In the major parks most tourists don't venture very far, 1/2 mile , and sometimes you'll find that your only allowed to camp in the designated site and not on the trees a few meters away. This is an...
Nice to see the beautiful area you were in. Love that water running with snow and a blue sky. And i'm with ya shug. If we can get out into the woods and breathe, life is good.
Looks beautiful. Thanks
A hammock is a permenent fixture in my living room. Naps happen everal days a week.
This isn't exactly what your after but could give you some idea's.

Bushcraft outfitters has a 10x10 & 10x12 that has 19 attatchment loops, might work for your needs.
Looks like a good time. Thanks for sharing.
The only piece of gear that i take that gets used in a multi purpose way on almost every trip is my knife, as in cutting,splitting and striker for firesteel. Next would be my hammock ,as in sitting...
Use the existing tree as one point and go up to hollyburn or somewhere where you can get 4 poles. Three at about eight feet long for the tripod as your second point and one about 12'-14' long to go...
Welcome to the forum
Welcome to the forum. I would also suggest you have a look at BCUK forum,( bushcraft uk), as there are allot of hangers there and they have local knowledge of where to hang and stuff to buy locally.
If your not already doing it try and do allot of walking, not on the job walking, but at night a mile or two. Do it regularily with hatha yoga and some pillates for core strength and your back will...
My cabin in the woods is doing well, ok its rotting here and there but so am i. We're supposed to be having winter still but we are in spring mode, 6-8 wks ahead of time. The snow is melting very...
Good stuff Frenchy. Its very mild up mt way as well,,in fact we're having spring 6-8 wks ahead of time. Of course we could be right back to winter in a couple of wks. Beautiful place there. Thanks....
Great stuff Brucie,,lovely country, and the creek , pools and waterfalls were great. I like my blackbird allot also.
Good looking setup
Welcome from BC
Good stuff Shug. I love being in the woods when its snowing. Nice to see you diggin on the Boreal shirt. Keep on truckin
Sorry,,,don't agree with this. Lots of folks pee on their side in the hammock. I'm 63 and no trouble in that department other than needing to go too many times a night. Anyway to each his own. Hang...
Welcome to the forum. In addition to what others have said and because your in the PNW and you might get into some remote camping i would say put together a fire kit and fire making skills. That...
Welcome to the forum Daisy
Very nice. Congrats to both of you. May you have many of years of happiness.
I have a DD on its way as we speak.
Jacks have always have great CS
Bushcraft Outfitters has a 10x10 for $60.
Welcome to the forum. There are hangers in BC, especially in the lower mainland. Somewhere on the forum, probably in the trips section there is a thread on Vancouver area get together. At the moment...
very nice , thanks for sharing
I never buy anything out of the US unless it goes USPS. In the past i have used a border drop off place if i had a bunch of stuff coming but haven't done that in several years .
slowhike , the ridge line on a SF is 132" or 11'. I use it with my 11' hammock just fine. If you just want to sell anyway thats another thing.
The way that i use most of the time is to tie the tarp lines to sticks about a foot long . Bury them in the snow, and put snow on top and tamp it down. You can put a little bit of tension on them...
I smoked a pipe a very long time ago and actually thought about taking it up again when i get really old cause who cares then,,,,probably won't tho. Anyway my only advice is live life and do what you...
I have a SF and love it, but i think any of those tarps will serve you well.
Nice to get out in the woods even if it is a bit wet. Nice pics. I was thinking the same thing about your chimney length. Usually folks have a pretty long chimney as you can see in many pics on...
Great looking area,,thanks
I have the 2QZQ breathable and like it. Definitely keeps the moisture off and adds warmth to the system.
River Joe, vimeygirl , and O&B nailed it. This shouldn't be a debate thread about to go or not to go in the hammock but an info thread for those that need to find a better way to empty their bladder...
Do they have a brand name??,,,like Codet
Those were exactly the changes i was going to suggest but decided that you had probably thought about those. I prefer the webbing myself and love the superfly. As you said you'll more than likely...
Welcome from BC Canada.
