2 sock kinda guy here too
How good is a hammock in the rain, it's my favorite time to be in a hammock
When I camp I drink, when I drink I wee . I like being able to roll over and flop it over the side and let rip. Back to sleep in no time flat. Just watch where you leave your shoes and where you step...
Excellent. Will keep a watch out. Both are also hobbies of mine.. You may very well be my fav shop in the future.
I think that's awesome. Did they have that net material in colours for men too? :-)
Congrats. Sounds like an awesome trip. Hammocks are great but do take some tweaking to hit your spot. Part of the fun really and a good excuse to try more gear.
Didn't know the Hennessey...
I'd go as far to say its a better process to check before you leave home for a hang ;)
That's the main reason I got the rr was for the view. If I'm out in a hammock I want to see what's doing around me else I may as well be in a tent. I like the swing.
I just wanted to pass on a public thank you to Brandon for the follow up service that I've received over the past few months since purchasing the RR and CB tarp.
Long story short, I had a hole in...
Read a book or the like when you first jump in. That puts me away pretty quick. Have you tried adjusting the sag in your hammock? I prefer a taught hammock over a typical set up. Notice I avoided...
I was just wondering if anyone has tried this technique for testing hammock suspension set ups before.
Seems to be quite the strenuous test so should be confidence inspiring if yours makes it...
Any chance of making the video available for mobile devices so I can watch from the hammock :)
I like that idea. That will keep my foot pad in place if I stuff it down into my tq foot box. I get cool feet and use a pad but it always wanders over night. In the nano 7 it goes over the side.
I figured most have probably looked at them at some point and pondered. Thought it might be nice to offer more than a little pic and a rough description of them.
They will never replace my other...
This looked interesting. A friend at work showed me after listening me dribble for hours about hammocks.
Cocoon Tree, A Cozy Spherical Tent That Hangs From Trees...
In an attempt to get the dog used to sleeping in the hammock with me, I went in search of a cheapy hammock to use as a tester and to take with when I go car camping for others to 'try out' .
Never measured it.
I tend to chuck an adjustable on and eye ball it.
Try it and make adjustments from there.
+1 for the pit technique :)
yes it is. It's the centre lint of the tarp.
So just off to the side of it.
It's in the back yard, nothing in the vicinity to fall on it.
This why I'm puzzled with it.
Some nights you're just not meant to be out there.
I was super keen to get out back and try a second night in my WBRR and cloud burst tarp because it was new and because it had started raining. ...
I'd say it might have the opposite effect of creating mental instability. I refer you to Shug's videos :)
or even the multiple hammock thread where people liken it to a mental illness.
Yoy can always try making out of the cheapest material you can find...old bed sheets etc to see what works before you need to start on the more exotic materials.
Each material is unique though but...
fyi , it arrived today. So approx 3-4 weeks to Aus. Today has been the longest work day though :(3 hours to go
Ordered the RR and cb bout mid Dec 12. Got notice last week rt they're on their way to down under. hoping they beat this weekend :) knew he was busy and the holidays were imminent so expected to...
Sometimes you just don't or at best it's a crappy nights sleep.
Haven't tried the water thing, but have left the tarp off to enjoy the rain before.
Will have to try a quick soak before jumping in...
107f just the other week. I'm in Autralia though. Amazed how much heat the bug net keeps in even with a bit of a breeze.
just confirming the "i'll take it' as per your PM for the UQ.
Let me just say this. Make sure you check what you're haging from is structurely sound. :eek:
Can you confirm if you received my pm please?
I sent it via a tablet and just wanted to confirm it went ok?
I'll be take the uq if we can arrange postage to Australia ? Pm on its way.
Nice one. Got my shipping notice last week. Mine should be here (down under)
this week. Meant to have some hot days though, about 40c. Might be just about right for testing if there is some breeze...
You should get the yellow one then. :)
Interested in the light hiker if it goes belly up.
Just don't apply all of this as advice to the crocodiles if you come to Australia ;)
They will eat you as soon as look at you.
The only other thing to worry about is the drop bears.
What they said
Front line here. I think you will enjoy it. I think its a good all rounder. Bet you can't wait.
I have had to pull out the E-Blanket when I was tenting it in past and my 3/4mat wasn't cutting the mustard insulation wise.
I think they are one of those items that can justify their weight and...
I have a friend that I took up road cycling with a few years back and he was always looking at the weight of his bike and spent several thousand dollars in getting and keeping his bikes weight to a...
I'm also 5'4 and am quite happy with the nano. I've Been using it for winter as I don't need the bug net and it works well with a uq.I'm not a angle sleeper tho and prefer a taught straight lay.I'll...
what he said :thumbup1:
no point buying the ticket, you used it all today already .
Just in case I'm wrong through, what numbers are you putting on :)
oh and I love pressies
i can't believe yo haven't figured this one out yet.
LEAVE THE TOILET SEAT UP a few times or leave dirty undies on the floor. She'll be kicking you out of the house in a huff in no time flat. ...
You can only try to keep them all happy. Still feels like defeat though packing up and heading home. Been there done that :(
Oh well, can't live with em ...cant bury em out back .
I'm really new to this too and only have about 10 nights up my sleeve and 9 of those have been in the backyard.
As I'm generally over prepared, I don't know if I would be putting myself in your...
Got one a few weeks back and am impressed with the quality. had it just under 40f and the only issues I had were due to my still learning to hang it correctly.
Once everything warmed up around me i...
Hi, do you have this available ?
Hi, interested in the tq if you still have it. I'm located in Newcastle. Drop off or pick be ok? Can shoot me a pm if you like
makes me want a donut
