Great video and some nice new equipment.
Where did you get that nifty t-shirt, Shug?
Very generous of you. Thank you. PM on the way.
Just tried to PM you and your inbox is full, I guess.
That's funny, our Scout Troop does a trip to that exact site every fall. Last year we took out quite a bit of trash, which was unusual. It's a beautiful spot. We'll be there later this month.
I don't know if this is true in your case, but I've noticed a lot of new hammock users think that you need bigger trees than are actually necessary to get a good hang. I've had people really question...
I've gotten a couple of Scouts in our Troop into hammock camping and would like to reward them and convert more. I think offering the Hammock Camping Merit Badge in our Troop would do that. The only...
Thanks for the additional info. I haven't tried it without the extension in the spreader bar so I guess I wouldn't have noticed much difference either way. I'll set it up without next time and see...
Thank you, Paul.
I thought that might be what the loop was for, but I didn't want to do anything with the spreader bar that might cause undo lateral stress. Now that I know it's designed to hold...
I recently purchased a Ridgerunner here on HammockForums and I love it! I do have a couple of (probably silly) questions that have gone unanswered from the previous owner and Warbonnet:
1. What is...
Please move this thread to sold/withdrawn. Pack sold locally off forum.
I'll take the Ridge Runner. Please send me payment info. Thanks!
Depends on the site. 6' should be fine in most places, but I've been at a few sites where the ideal hang is from larger trees. There are some BIG trees up there intermingled with the smaller. I'd...
In some spots this time of year you have to run to keep from being eaten alive! :)
Was just up there a week or so ago. Rained a lot, but it's always a good trip.
I have some mittens with fold back areas that are held in place by magnets. The magnets become a very cold spot in colder weather. Just something to keep in mind.
Thanks, Shug. I look forward to your report. Looks like you'll definitely be able to test it's rainworthiness (not a word, I'm sure) as it's headed towards the Arrowhead Region. Have a safe outing!
That is a great looking rig. Almost looks like something out of a science fiction story. I'll be looking at those in the future, for sure. May need to wait for the bigger version if it ever comes to...
I see several folks mention the assigned canvas tents. Not all Scout camps have these. The camp we go to has them a few sites, but most of the time campers are in their own tents. In those cases,...
I just kept my stuff in my duffel bag and small bin under my tarp. Did the same thing last year (except I used a pack instead of a duffel bag). I have a Superfly, so I just closed the doors when it...
I'll take it.
Mug, lids, and spork also sent.
Sorry about that. It was late and I forgot what I was doing.
Trade agreed to: My 10cm IMUSA with 2 Zelph lids and a silicone lid and Snowpeak Ti spork (all unused) for his used GSI kettle.
I have an unused IMUSA 10cm cup with a lid (from Zelph, I think) and a Snowpeak Ti Spork. I'm interested in the GSI kettle. PM me if you'd like to work something out. I've got some other stuff I...
Nice offer. Thanks!
I broke one about 3 years ago at Scout camp. I was setting up the tarp as a windbreak in about 30mph sustained winds and really put a ton of stress on the hook. It snapped in exactly the same place...
Withdrawn, lack of interest.
Mods please close this thread. Withdrawing due to lack of interest.
Pack is in great shape. A little surface dirt on some of the straps, but there are no tears, rips, or holes. There are a couple of small stretched out spots on the outer mesh pocket, but ...
I'm going to have to repost this as a "For Sale" only with no trades. We've just purchased a different pack for him so just looking to sell now. Thanks for looking. Mods please close this thread so I...
I'll take this for my Scout. PM sent.
Dropping this to $75 shipped. It's all boxed up and ready to go!
I must say that I think I enjoyed these videos more than any other you've done. The sense of wonder and discovery clearly visible on your face as you met with a new experience was something that...
I put mine in big plastic tubs with a desiccant to control moisture. They stay uncompressed and are protected very well. Takes some space, but it works for me.
Specs say 13-19 inches; it is highly adjustable. It still fits my boy, he just needs a more volume.
I use a pillow stuffed with climashield and a JRB Greylock 4 partial UQ all winter (I use the pillow year round, really). I've been down to -10F with that and a polar fleece beanie and have never...
Sorry. It's the Pathfinder Pack. You can see the details here: http://www.duluthpack.com/packfinder-pack.html
One and only drop to $200 shipped.
This pack will last a lifetime.
Lowering the price to $85 shipped or same trade terms as original post.
I pulled one of mine into a very odd shape under the same circumstances. Haven't really looked for a replacement, just kind of praying that it finally breaks for good when I'm doing something in the...
Pack is in great shape. A little surface dirt on some of the straps, but there are no tears, rips, or holes. There are a couple of small stretched out spots on the outer mesh pocket, but no...
I'll take them. Please PM your Paypal info. I'll send payment this afternoon.
I hate to part with this as I've loved Duluth Packs for many years. However, I don't really get many chances to use this one and I hate to see a quality piece of gear like this just sit.
I agree. Takes about 5 seconds to tie one at both ends and is quite useful for gathering up the excess strap material. I tie them on my Blackbird suspension every time. Haven't needed it, but it's...
Maybe those that want that land to be exclusive to hikers could lobby for a hiking license that would contribute to the acquisition and management of public lands for the exclusive use of hikers....
I've used both on a Blackbird. I still have the Greylock and no longer the Yeti.
Both are fine quilts, but the greater coverage of the Greylock won me over. I have pretty wide shoulders so that...
I've been in that tower many, many times. It always made for a good date spot back in the day.
I miss the Deam dearly. Thanks for the trip back.
I had a bat fly up under my tarp one night. Startled me enough that I had to check my britches, but no harm.
I'll take the BBO. Please PM me with your Paypal details.
This pack is still looking for a good home. Leather has been recently conditioned and it's ready for some great adventures!
Thanks, Dutch! Looking forward to trying these with the DIY bridge hammock I'm working on.
