No, I opted for the olive green 12 ft. I really like those snaps on the doors. Makes them easy to close.
Saw this on Massdrop for a Hammeck Netty
Adam needs to give that Horace guy a raise.
Great video and nice view to the workings of HG's shop. I want one of those sewing machines.
Received the skully's I ordered for The Terminator and myself. They are nice and super light weight. Fold down to almost nothing. Was wearing mine around the house this AM. Noticed a big difference...
I have a 7/8 length UGQ UQ 20 degree with 2 ounces of over stuff and I have used it to 9 degrees and I was still very warm and feel I could have taken it at least another 10+ lower. As I am on blood...
Its been out for awhile now.
I should know in a couple of days what my work schedule will be and if it works out, we may go hiking.
Does it come with his pee bag ?
I have seen them. The Mecks brought their prototype to the Hunger Hang last October and I got to take it for a test hang. Then the Mecks ( Mom and Dad ) had the Stand and the kit at the Florida...
Does anyone plan to hike any of the trails ? I am thinking about staying a extra day or two ( depending on work schedule ) and try to do a overnight on the trail. If possible I would like to hook up...
Those BlackBird's are one tough hammock
Sound like you need to try making some more. Maybe on higher heat setting ?
I like to use a couple of hand warmers in my front pockets. The material from the pockets keeps the hand warmers from touching the skin but still lets the warmth thu.
How about Blue zing it.....they make Amsteel in blue....and orange
The Jarbrige is a great value and a real workhorse of a underquilt.
Have never been to an REI garage sale. what to do, what to do.....
You could check with Hammeck and see if they have sold any to someone in your area. Or drive over to see them and try out a Envy S. The Mecks are very nice folks.
I do not...
I went ahead and reserved site #9 for The Terminator and myself for Saturday.
The Terminator and I will both be coming to the hang. The Terminator wants to spend Friday night with son who now lives in Raleigh and then come over to Umstead on Saturday.
What time should we...
The Terminator says she wants one so I guess deciding what to get her for her birthday will be an easy choice this year.
I just finished a UQ for The Terminators Ridge Runner with two layers of 5.0 Apex Clamashield. Have to wait for another cold spell so she can give it a good test. Those two layers of 5.0 was a PITA...
While Strapworks does have a great selection of straps, just be careful as I found some of them to be on the slick side and would slip thru a cinch buckle unless I used a half hitch.
The petroleum based will leave a smell that takes about a week to dissipate. The smell is not bad or good but noticeable.
Our vet stopped selling Permethrin based tick and flea meds for dogs some...
Go with the Dutch Ti cinch buckles. Very light weight and easy to use. I recently changed out the Blackbird buckles for the Dutch Ti.
Why ? f someone volunteers to help fix a meal and they have a preference as to what they want to do, its up to them to say so in advance....not after you have them cook the bacon :)
Got up with walkinslow and I think he is good to go now.
Got down to 9 degrees here. Not much compared to most places up north but for us on coastal NC, it is extremely cold. It's been 20 years since its been this cold here.
Was in back yard testing a...
Great tarps. I am using a 12 ft Dream tonight.
Have you tried Permethrin ?
welcome to the madness
The Terminator ( my wife ) is 5ft 3 and finds a Jarbrige to be a full length UQ. Most of the Jarbriges out there are 3 season and the low end rating of 25 degrees will be pushing it for most...
I never sausage a short hang....( apologies to South of the Border ) :lol:
Is Mini Rat ( mini mouse ) coming along ?
Paul and Missy are good folks making good products
So is this the sausage hang ?
They are great items to have
It does help to have your UQs and TQs all different colors so you can ID them faster. Before I figured this out I packed what I thought was a UQ and TQ and got to the site and started to set only to...
I have PM walkinslow and we are going to try and get together to solve the problem.
Unmighly,,,,you could bring your daughter along
For my zipper bug net hammocks I added zipper pulls inside and out with bright orange or green cord to make it easier to find the zippers. For my hammocks that have a structural ridge line, I add 2...
Have you watched Shug's video on using UQ's ?
You did not say if you have a 3/4 or FL UQ from HQ.
Is it your head, feet or sides that are getting cold.
If your feet are cold and or head...
Like others have said,, most of the cottage vendors here are small operations making high quality stuff to order. I had to wait 2 months for a TQ a few years back from a vendor but it was worth the...
They might have threaten to take the ladies with them.
no snow here :(
CamoEvo...what model thermometer is that ?
Get the doors. I got the 12 HG Standard Cuben tarp with doors, weights a whooping 8+ ounces. While I have only tied off the doors one time, I am glad I have them.
The Terminator says I might have to make a set....
The Terminator asked me if I had heard from them. Shipsgunner has not been active on the forum in awhile.
I think we had 2 at the Fat Butt Hang and 3 at the Hunger Hang and they are nice for the shade they provide and kind of create a focus point as to where important things are at, like sign in, the...
All good stuff. You should also look at a Blackbird or Blackbird XLC and Hammeck.
Contact the manufacture and ask them what they recommend. Several of the hangers on the forum weight close to 400...
