What could possibly go wrong? :scared:
Hey, bibsoutdoors....welcome to HF, and thanks for looking for our hang! The BH Hang is pretty informal; we're just a bunch of people who love to camp, love hammocks, and love the Black Hills!
August seems like a long time from now, but it will be here before we know it! Will be so nice to see all our old friends again, and hopefully make some new ones. Would love to meet some of the...
Pssht....that was the first and last time it will snow all season!
Nice write-up, Craig....hope to see you next year!
Glad you were able to find them, in spite of my rather vague directions! Hope to see you down the road!
It was great to see/meet everyone....I had a great time! Glad the wayward iPhone wasn't so wayward, after all! :rolleyes:
Thought I would post this great picture of the star of the show....
Boothill and I, along with some friends, are going camping this weekend at Sheridan Lake if anyone wants to join us! :laugh:
THAT is a good-looking shirt! :boggle:
I usually blame it on the cats....
These are very clever! Like boothill mentioned, cataraftgirl had these in Utah....I plan to steal the idea! :)
Those are most excellent pics, maddtom! :thumbup:
Great shot of the bridge as you paddled that way...glad you got to get over there! (Nice action shot of Murphy, too... :) )
Hope to run into you again down the road!
I just recently made a bridge for boothill and this last weekend was his maiden voyage with it. He used the down DIY UQ he had been using with his WBBB. We were able to make it work, but he had to...
Spoke with mamaboot and the leader of the Henry Clan this weekend and they were a bit miffed that they hadn't been included on the list of attendees yet. We gotta keep mamaboot happy; if she doesn't...
Hi, Rangerjoe! Welcome to HF, and hope we get to meet you at a Hang!
Hi, welcome to HF! Your plan seems like a sound starting point. You can find a plan for a DIY tarp here.
PM your info RedBadger, I'll scrounge one up for you!
All 5 (+ a bonus) have been claimed. Thanks for playing!
One left! Don't forget to PM me with your info.....
I had some of these stickers made for me and boothill. I have some extras, so the first 5 people who post will get one!
Mods, please close thread.
i have some stickers for trade (see image) if you have any hammock/hiking related stickers and would like to do a trade let me know, can be from anywhere
Yes, yes it is....thank god.
I'm not sure if I'm just not seeing it, but what happened to the 'quick jump' that was at the bottom of every page?
Chicks with hammocks are dude magnets! :)
Can they even do that?!?
OMG...thank you. :bored:
Based on an idea from Paul at UGQ, I use a 'stake burrito' and put them in an outside pocket of my pack.
I really like...
Thanks, I'm just not afraid to rip it apart and start over. :) And I do A LOT of that!
I like your thinking! :thumbup:
Thanks, everybody! I just enjoy messing around with stuff like this. :)
Bridge hammocks, with their bodies and suspension triangles, tend to be longer than GE hammocks.
They can also be...
I started out with a Hennessey, too. It was a Hyperlite, I think. I had problems with shoulder squeeze, so switched to a bridge. I enjoy messing around with making my own bridges, but I can...
Holy carp! I saw that you posted earlier in the thread, but didn't realize until now that you are coming. Sweet! :laugh:
Thanks for posting this. It could be just what I'm looking for!
What part of SD are you from? We'd love to see you at the Hang this year!
Do they come in bunk beds?
That would save a lot of floor space in my house...
Does the Little Mermaid wear an algebra?
HA! :D Congrats on 500!
HEY! I resemble that remark.... :rolleyes:
I made a bridge for boothill that has a 44" spreader bar at the head end and a 36" bar in the foot. Don't remember how long it is, but he's 6'3" and...
Welcome to HF, from the Black Hills of South Dakota! I've been to Georgia on a couple of occassions, you have a beautiful state!
WooHoo! Booking the site for the Hang is a sure sign that summer is coming! :boggle:
Here's a picture of my latest DIY bridge. (The bugnet has shockcord that attaches to the CRL of the tarp.)
Typically, when the thread on the bottom of your piece is messed up, the problem is with your spool, top tension, improperly threading the machine, etc. When the thread on the top is messed up, the...
Thanks! My name is sodakgrrl and I am a DIY bridge-aholic. :)
They also work well for when the spreader bars are inset.
I've sewn several different bridge hammocks in several different ways. I've used 1/2" webbing, amsteel, and mule tape. I have decided I like using the mule tape, but couldn't figure out a good way...
Beautiful pics....you have a stunning back yard!
What kind of clothes are you wearing? Maybe if you wore the same (type of) clothes every night, you could use your top cover just to regulate a bit?
Like a couple of the others above, I am a side-sleeper in a bed. In my bridge hammock, though, I sleep the night through on my back. Not saying that you need a bridge, just that hammocks are so...
Welcome to HF, Lostman! Attending a group hang is a great way to check out different setups, get sound advice, and maybe hear some tall tales. See you in the trees!
