Yes, that is normal.
I thought I saw a white blaze in the video. So the trail is blazed then? and you had a GPS?
Also, that looked like an echinacea flower there (the purple one). Good stuff...
You sure don't have to go all the way to SNP. Though that is definitely a real nice spot to go... Heck the area around Newport News Reservoir, York River State Park, Chickahominy, Powhatan,...
As I mentioned elsewhere, I'd say you nailed it:thumbup:
That's Awesome!! I hope the weather is great for your upcoming hike and closing up of the gaps.
I'll be heading up to Dutch's state (PA) to do a section from PennMar up to Port Clinton, hopefully...
Nice video! I was up there this past weekend myself, though I went north - Hughes Gap to Watauga/321/AT, then walked into Johnson. Saw that same little wooden carved face too - thought it was pretty...
Thank you. I definitely did enjoy it. Had awesome weather up on the balds. I hiked the section I was talking about (Hughe's Gap back up to Watauga Lake/321), this past weekend, 4/29 - 5/1. There are...
Nice video. That wuz some smallish Squatch drop'ins for sure, but definitely did look pretty tasty...
I hiked 321/Watauga Lake to Damascus 'bout three or four weeks ago now. The Watauga Lake...

Is your post info the typo? The sign up sheet gives May 13-15 as the "When".
Your post states March.
May does cover the weekend, March does not. Guessing May is correct, right?
The down jacket I spoke & paid for on Jan 4th, was on my porch in Priority mail wrapping when I got home from fishing today. Thank you for a smooth & good transaction,
My hat's off to you, and HUGE Kudos to you sir!! Mark yourself down as an Awesome Dad for taking your young ones out like that. Thanks for sharing,
You listed two of the XL size, mcody spoke for one if I read it correctly. If that is the case and, you have one XL slate green jacket remaining, then I'll take the remaining slate green XL jacket...
I was thinking the same thing. Definitely one of the coolest things I've seen in a long time.
Cool vid. I hiked the approach trail from A.S.P up to Franklin, NC (winding stair gap) back at the end of this past May. Spent a night by Blue Mt shelter too. I hung my hammock 'bout six-ish times...
4.6 oz for hammock, suspension & stuff sack. Very impressive.
Some really good options mentioned above.
GadgetUK not only makes a very good suggestion, but mentions ebay - a source that is definitely worth giving a look.
Yet another option: I've heard...
LOL! I think I would have paid money to watch that :)
I get that you hung your food away from where you camped, and that you ate away from where you hung also - but - you were hanging between two trees that are known to all the animals to provide food...
here is your other photo (the one with the link, but not showing)...
that's four now,
I can definitely confirm that they do have them there (Newport News Costco). I made the drive up this morning, and picked up two of them for thirty-nine bones and some change. They've got a pallet of...
You are definitely not the only one. I also do not - DO NOT - use a tarp unless it's calling for rain, or the clouds are laying on the land.
Yes, it is tempting fate, or a gamble, sometimes, lol....
Alright, laughs up and back on topic
There are some really, really good suggestions posted here on how to mitigate fog, or low lying clouds.
I consider myself fortunate in that I have a war...
:lol: fog is visible? oh.. you guys make me laugh :lol:
of course it is, as i'd bet we are all aware... goodness...
bit of a difference between a molecule and a water droplet. lol,...
:lol: LMAO! :lol: well... that'd be one way i suppose...
and let me add: i am totally impressed by the guy who can see water molecules! that's what? three atoms per molecule? very very...
Holy crap that's funny Dutch!!!
I salute & applaud you! Very, very well done and nicely played sir!!
Nice little overnighter hike, and cool that you had it to yourself. Very cool that you got to see the bear foraging a bit also
Very nice Firebird! Thanks for posting up the video and taking us along.
I'm looking to hike GA in a few weeks myself.
As you know, it really depends on the size of and distance between the trees in the area you'll be using the tarp.
As to 10' per side - figuring most tarps have a ten/eleven foot ridgeline - and...
Voted. Best of luck to ya man
I'll take it, check your PMs
Wow... I was thinking Kangaroo...
James Tiberius instead though... Now we know ;)
man-oh-man DD... that newsprint/radio line is funny. Never have heard that before.
If'n yer of th'mind to put some neon green shock cord on yer tarp (it's actually a neon green/black checked) -...
Hey joshcrsn, if ya follow the build link, provided in the initial post by the seller, you'll find this:
And georgecarr, i'd be all over that quilt myself as it is a nice looking quilt for...
i really like that slippery sheet bend. thank you for posting that video up
If you're set on using 7/64 then a suitable alt might be the speedhooks, anchors, or large loop alien...
Also interested. I've hiked and hung there a bit
Howdy & welcome!
I was just up your way weekend before last. Hiked from Ashby Gap down to 522 on the AT. What a nice little section that turned out to be! Nice area you're in up there, for sure....
One can only hope...
It is indeed listed on their site. Here's the Link Scroll down until you get to: HTS 75 5/64" Gray, 1,000lb. Breaking Strength. First one listed, $0.16 per foot. That is exactly what I bought.
Is that second photo one you took? If so, is that a winter palace? or the standard w/doors? I ask because of how far the walls come down to the ground, which I like quite a bit.
Sure thing, and here ya go: LINK HERE
HTS 75 5/64" Gray, 1,000lb.Breaking Strength (WM Model#)12357406 (MFG Part#)1528-02-00600
currently westmarine has the all grey version of that all white, for five cents a foot less, than that all white version.
There's always the 5/64" (1.984mm) new england ropes HTS 75 Dyneema single braid. Literature says it has a 1,000 lb breaking strength.
Nice! 307ft of the 5/64 (1.9mm) new england ropes 1,000lb break strength, gets the $49 shipped free mark. Happy day!
Yes indeed, Great news! I've been waiting for something like this.
Based on the dimensions posted on your site, the diagonal of the quilt will be 71.06 inches. That sound about right?
Hmmm... You are right, it is a beautiful hike. Especially mid to late spring time.
I'm planning on knocking out GA toward the end of May. So if in May, I'll be hiking elsewhere :)
I'll keep an...
