    Thanks OG. I am bringing two sets of night vision, in case nobody has ever used em at night. Makes the woods and wildlife more interesting.

    Do we have a current count of how many will be hanging?

    My daughter wants to join us if that is ok. Problem is she doesn't have a hammock, so I may have to bring a tent for her, unless someone has a spare I can borrow. She is 21, 5'4"

    I am heading out on leave tomorrow, so I will be back in Texas after a wild night in Dubai. Thus, me and my son will be showing up. Is there a canoe rental nearby?

    If anyone is interested, I can...

    Chad,

    Glad to see you here. Maybe we can sneak off and do some bushcraft :). I may bring one of my old parachutes for us the play with. Maybe hang it up for a sun shade or cut it up to make some...

    I assume you are referring to UCP rather than ACU (army combat uniform).

    Anyhow, I don't recall anyone else making em, probably because it is not very popular outside of the US Army.

    I fly back on May 24th, and leave on June 13th. I assume we are doing weekends, or do we want to extend it for a few more days?

    Keep in mind this is where people used to go to hide out, back in the Civil war days. Parts of it are like a jungle and very thick. In the summer, it can be very humid and a bit unpleasant for some. ...

    There is a difference between the issued PLs, and the Chinese copies that are more commonly available. I had my first one issued back in 1978 and they basically stayed the same. The military issued...

    Jim,

    I think I have seen one small camel spider in the seven years I have been working here. Wild dogs, camels, boar, and a lynx style cat is all I have seen.

    Lots of real camels

    I am very interested in the Epiphany-APEX for use in Iraq, but require a tan, brown, or green color.

    Before I pull the trigger on an order, will it be possible to get a subdued color?

    I have never hung my WB from the ceiling, but I suspect it is not the best way to set it up, and the cause of your problems. I think you will need a stand.
