Yes the shockcord trick works.
Anything that snugs the quilt up helps. Shug added a sc that clips to his rl. Any of the 4 season quilts usually need extra uumph to keep them snug. Either the vendor...
Check your local hunting store. http://www.academy.com/shop/pdp/allen-company-instant-roof-treestand-umbrella/pid-29387 $19.00
You can diy a standard umbrella as well.
And have a good bail out plan. And a snowplow.
Flip it...and call it an ambidextrous tarp. :)
Seam seal ALL stitches and tie outs.
Only 5 hammocks? :rolleyes:
xtrek's video gives details on your footbox.
Make your footbox, match the foot end dimension's of your quilt to your footbox's dimensions. Sew the two together.
A bunch of trip reports in the trip report forum.
Standard quilts will work. Your body is what needs insulating, not the hammock.
Your new set up will need the usual tweaking and adjustments to properly fit. The UQ suspension is elastic to...
You're never alone.
WE are your hammock family.
Ice storm/freezing rain conditions happened at the 2012 Winter group hang in Ludington MI.
All tarps were encrusted in a glaze of crispy ice. The tarps easily weighed three or four times their...
After your completely done. The stitching will also be sealed this way.
Some have experienced a stickiness if the diy treatment is prior to fabrication.
Its that time...
1780 or 1880??:lol:
^what red said
You may need to deconstruct the bag completely, including the bottom?
Prior to undoing the bag, pin all mods in place.
Right, It isnt available anymore. The one you linked is not the jacket in question.
Other options are more expensive.
Some may be available from members who bought too many? Or hit up your local...
I feel for Hickery...
You can make one end with shockcord, knotted off leaving a very small opening. Other side with cord and cordlock.
I made many that way.
Caution on the pocket...if your straps have sap, poison...
Good karma, as usual. :thumbup1:
My Therapist won't let me talk about it..
Ouch Joe. Get well!!
Bouvier quilt. :lol:
What are your static ropes made from?
Polyester or nylon? Polyester core? Nylon outer?
I will ask again. Show us (by us, I mean the entire forum) some statistics, a website, anything, that backs...
If I buy $10,000 worth, whats my discount??:cool::jj:
Congrats Paul and the entire team at AHE.
Nylon webbing is static..?????
Show me some stats on your opinion, please.
Takes more fabric (= more weight). Needs more trees/tieouts.
If so, it is terrible. Small tarp, short, tippy. But I have used one...back in 1976.:laugh:
This gets mentioned often..
But do the process correctly.
Allowing sil dots to dry thoroughly before using.
Two layers of 5.0 would be extra bulky.
Buy a cheap sleeping bag, new or used for $15-$40. Even a kids sized bag for just your lower torso/legs. Probably find one in camo too. Add some suspenders to...
The nut doesn't fall far from the tree.
Store your stakes separately from your hammock and tarp. The pressure while packed can cause abrasions to the fabric.
Push come to shove, you could do a small pillow with the fabric and down. Give the finished pillow a workout for a week or so and see what happens. You'd only loose a small swatch of fabric and a...
I'll take it.
Make it with "zippered" pockets.
The loose, open top pocket design tends to allow for your 'weight' items to go flying at night when you toss open the flap. A bummer when you realize your headlamp...
$11 for MI vehicles.
$31 for out of state. :confused::scared: We can work out a shuttle, if needed?
Daily passes are available. Rangers may be at the gate or tour the park the randomly. You may purchase them in a "pay at the gate" mailbox also. Yearly passes can also be purchased if you wish.
Michigan is having a hang. Check it out. Lots of gear to see. Great people.
In a hammock...you under inflate the pad. This allows the pad to flex and conform to your body. Adjust inflation as desired to achieve your comfort level.
CCF pads work. Try a 3/8" or 1/2" (at...
After the price of extra ingredients, and the added mess and labor, its best to buy a fabric that is known to perform.
Buy some silnylon and be done with it.
How far apart??
One trick I've done is run the whoopie thru the straps, then connect the whoopies together over the hammock (like a second ridgeline.) I used a 'biner or nacra 'biner. 6' whoopies...
Not sure yet?
A firm maybe.:lol:
It can work, but extremely fragile. Once a tear starts, it zippers pretty quick. Not ideal in a rain storm. And repair tape and wet plastic arent a good match.
PTAaron, This is a great time to test. The sites are drive up and hang. So bring the gear you wanna play with.
