Great review there Shug!! I have maybe half a dozen nights in my XLC, sold my regular WBBB to a buddy. It was great, but the 11 foot XLC is more comfy for this 6'4" 280lb fellow.
Good stuff Joe, miss camping with you guys. We gotta get together this year sometime.
Awesome, got it penciled in on my calendar.
I might be in on this. Last year was so busy for me I had very little time in the woods, but I am forcing myself to MAKE time. Will be watching this and hoping to make it.
Mine came in while I was out of town. Great surprise when I got home. Thanks again for doing this.
Interested maybe, pm inbound
Can't remember if I ordered any blue or not, but I can certainly do with another color if that helps.
Was wondering if such a large order might be a problem. .
Welcome from another Alabamian
Welcome from another Alabamian. Just a little bit south of you in Montgomery.
No problem paying up front myself, just let me know the total.
Local for me. My pain has not been that bad, just the tingling arm and hand. I had a fusion done about 10 years ago and it is now putting pressure on the other disk around it.
I had my first shot in the neck last week, seems one might do me and I may not have to get a second. Good luck with yours.
Welcome from Montgomery
Poles worked out well. They only weigh 2.6 ounces for the pair. They are not as compact as some of the others on the market...but the price was right. :-)
Some time back, I setup my DIY Argon tarp for a test in a short rain storm...seen here.
Well, this afternoon I had a chance to do a follow up test after adding side panel pull-outs...
I added a few more to my order as well. I can pay in advance also to help cover the order. Just let me know when you are ready. Thanks again for doing this.
I have added poles and pull outs but have not had a proper rain sheer to test it. I had a small steady rain the other day, but nothing hard. As soon as I get a good test I will post it.
Yes, that is what came on the arrows way back when I bought them. They are old, not sure this style is used anymore. My newer arrows al have the standard inserts. I am sure regular arrows could be...
I used a broad head adapter to attach the two arrows together. Had to rethread one side to the standard 8-32 as the part that the broad head itself screwed onto was different. It was easy, the...
I am in for 15 unengraved if possible, but if not...15 none the less. Spreadsheet updated
Not the same poles, but carbon fiber none the less. These are carbon arrows, 2 of them per pole. They are 58" long.
Looking good. Looks like the Argon held up nice in the storm.
Thanks Detail Man, glad to hear yours are holding good. I did a test using your method on some scraps tonight, letting it cure now. Gonna play with it some over the weekend.
Me 2. He has some new products.
I plan to do this, seems like it would help reduce the force on the pull out.
Thanks for the link to the previous posts. Great info there. I can totally see how his method would work better. I am going to keep an eye on my setup and hope it will last a while as it is. I...
Hoping for some afternoon thunder showers over the next few days to give the tarp a good test run.
I have used several on my SBP. Started with a Kelty Noah 12. As far as hammock tarps go, it is big and heavy, but a nice tarp none the less. I also used several DIY tarps, mostly with 12 foot...
Yeah, I think I am going to try stitching some on my other tarp, but the bonding was really easy and seems quite secure....however, time will tell.
OK, some time back I started a thread showing a short thunderstorm test with my DIY argon tarp.
Thanks for sharing, good information.
I could go tighter I think. I am still being cautious with the Argon, but I think I am going to get serious and put it to the test. Better to find out at home I think.
I bet a tighter pitch...
Interesting indeed. I like the ingenuity on this.
Well, that is a different concept Out&Back. Did you just run an internal ridgeline and then run lash-it to the corners from the ridge line in a X shape?
I shook most of the rain off and hung it inside to dry. Pull outs have always intimidated me for some reason, but I plan to tackle them on this tarp soon.
The prussik is a small continues...
Well, we had a short thunder shower roll in this afternoon, so I decided to throw one of my Argon tarps out and see how it handled the rain. I think it did fine. Can't remember how much one of my...
Awesome video Jaxx, really captured the trip. Looking forward to the next one in the fall. Thanks for putting this together.
Fixed it for you...
My son and I were able to join several other hammock hangers at the Cheaha fall area in the Cheaha Wilderness area here in north Alabama for the annual spring hammock hang. We had a total of 12...
Welcome from central Alabama. Just back from another great hang this weekend. Hope to see you at one in the future.
Sure gonna miss seeing you there Dale. Not sure how much hiking I will be doing, my back is bothering me this week and son seems to have done something to his ankle in school yesterday, not...
Plan to be there by 5 or 5:30.
Several of the guys park at the pull out on 600, just past the trail crossing. Never had a problem. I might do that this time, not sure. Shaves about half a mile off the walk.
See if this helps out New2trees...
Find Cheaha State Park using your favorite navigation tool, which will likely bring you in off I20 via 431 and 281. Once you approach the main state park...
Thanks grapenut and new2trees, appreciate it.
Sure, come on by.
Hey guys, any of you happen to have a few feet of that fiberglass wicking Tinny sells? Been tinkering with a new stove and wanted to get some. Anyone have some they could bring this weekend?
Sounds like fun. My son and I need to get up there and give it a try sometime.
