I don't know that one way is better than the other as either way works. It's more a matter of preference, I think.
I find it easier to do the fold over method. I lay my cord in, fold the edge...
For me hammock camping is MUCH lighter than tent camping.
Since I've gotten a bit older, things tend to stiffen, snap and pop to the point that sleeping on the ground is just no longer an option. ...
Howdy neighbor and welcome to the forums!
My people hail from SE MO. :)
Oooooo The Amish start making hammocks I'm getting one. You wanna talk about well made, hand-made goods, that's the place to start.
I noticed a difference too.
First time I slept in my hammock it was way comfy, but the swinging nauseated me something awful. I noticed each time I slept in the hammock it took less and less time...
Links to both the 50 State Project thread and table are in my signature. I have everything in the table except for maybe the last 4-5 posts.
Most EXCELLENT news!
Truth be told it was all about a single paddle forward, when it should have been backwards.
Back in the day *insert laughter here* I never needed to think about how to canoe, it was just...
Starting a job tomorrow, so my attendance depends on the new work schedule, well, and the kid schedule too. But it would sure be nice to finally meet some fellow members!
After the initial shock of the flip I think she was more freaked out at the prospect of being stranded. I gave her a whole list of things as to why we were just fine.
- Neither of us is hurt
I use a 3/4 UQ and found if I don't make sure and have the shock cord pulled over my feet the quilt wants to slide under me. I've never had it completely end up on the backside of the hammock, but...
The girl child and I went car camping this past week at Washington State Park in Desoto, MO. I tried to get her to agree to Hawn, but I think she's addicted to the waffle cone ice creams we get...
I bought two of these and first thing I did was seal them with the orange lid sealant you can get at Wally World. Took about 3/4 of a can per tarp. Sealed the ridgeline by spraying the sealant in...
For me it's more about being aware of my surroundings. Experience has taught me, you can't always tell the age, or health of a tree by its size.
I'll take them both pending PM.
Howdy fellow Missourian and welcome to the forums!
Lots of great information floating around here... maybe too much! ;)
To the best of my knowledge, I've updated everything to this point. If I've missed something or entered it in incorrectly, please just let me know!
50 State Project: Table
I'm sure most have seen Rev's 50 State Project thread and also the 50 State Project Table I've been trying to organize all the info into.
I was thinking (yeah, I know, here it comes) we might add...
Off hand I don't know exactly what park departments have answered, but not all of them are present and accounted for. Those states may not have answered.
Infinity Outfitters is having a blow out sale on their newest color combo, Forest Green/Lime Green, hammock.

I'm surrounded by cedar trees, so no help here, BUT eBay has HUGE pine cones if you end up going that route.
Digger Pine Cone
You can, but I'm pretty certain you'd need a REALLY long stick. :lol:
Yanno, if you check the PIF section I offer custom stuff sacks on a regular basis, as long as you're not too picky about the color.
I've ordered from them several times and have always gotten the orders inside a weeks time.
What if you walk out your front door and get hit by a bus?
There are a million ways to talk yourself into a tizzy, but what purpose does it serve?
Were those reps speaking of state wide use or only for those specific parks?
Thank you very much *said in her best Elvis voice* :)
Alrighty, I believe I have everything updated up to this point. Please go take a look and make sure it's all accurate and that I've not...
Carabiner clipped to the suspension at the foot end of my hammock.
Please add me in there too!
DOH! You are so lucky you called it first.
Several of us bought these last month when they were on sale for $19.99 and Digitizer did a review as well.

Some were in better shape than others...
I think it's a matter of preference as either way will work just fine.
When I modified a sleeping bag into an UQ I rolled all the seam channels - top, bottom and sides. I found it easier because...

Well dangit! This is my neck of the woods and one of my favorite parks, no less. I won't be able to attend, but am looking forward to what you think of the trail. I've camped there a few...
I own a large wool hooded cloak and, as far as I'm concerned, it can't be beat when it comes to keeping me warm and dry in some of the most deplorable weather conditions for hours on end. I wouldn't...
Are they heavy because of the length or the actual weight of the strap? Most tree straps run about 6 foot and have loops sewn into each end which aids in suspension configuration and setup time. ...
Where are the draft collars placed? They aren't attached directly to the edge are they?
I made a double layer tablecloth for my daughter and found that even though I bought the same size tablecloths, they were not exactly the same size as one was a bit wider and the other longer. I...
So I'm looking at all these old sleeping bags and yet to be seam ripped puffer jackets and trying to figure out what will become what and out of the blue I was struck by the idea of draft collars.
They do still make Skin so Soft and it worked great as a bug repellent, however, I think they've changed the recipe and its no longer as effective. I'll have my mom check with her Avon Rep to verify...
Yay for staying dry in the rain!
Just looking at your Mom in that tent makes my knees hurt. :eek:
<<< Female! :D
Welcome from MO!
I've had been using the Wally World Blue tarps until a got a couple of Guide Gear Emergency Shelters. I don't know if they are still on sale, but you can try...
If anyone sees anything else I missed or botched, just give a holler!
EDIT: Also, if you feel froggy, click on the map tab and check your state. I updated all the...
I said I want it, never said I wanted to pay for it. :P It weighs about the same as what I just bought, even though the measurements are smaller.
I just recently watched a lot of Les Stroud's programs and before that Ray Mears'. (I'm still trying to fight my way through the first episode of Grylls) There were two show topics that really...
I want his tarp. End of story.
Table updated up to this point! Feel free to check it for accuracy. :)

Hey, that's my Bid Ol' No Name hammock! Same color no less. I ordered it from Overstock and figured it would have an identifier on the tag when I got it, but no luck. Now I know!
I luvs muh...
