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...
Outstanding comp video!! Man!!
It's been a few weeks since I've been in the mountains, and hiked miles upon miles of trails now - and your video makes me miss it A WHOLE LOT more, lol.
That sir, is Outstanding!!! Congratulations many times over to you both, with nothing but the very best of wishes accompanying. Very cool photo of you and Pockets in the hammock, with Tala laying...
Jiminy Crickets that is such a SWEET looking spot! And definitely shows some of the pros to hammock camping over ground dwelling. That ground is neither level, or smooth - but man! it is beautiful!...
To each their own & HYOH I say. My preference is for the simple gathered end. It's worked well for me for many years and many miles, in many parts of the world. It's not "the right way", or "the...
I've not been that far south on the AT yet. Are the bears really so bad there that a fence is needed?
That's pretty slick. Does that splice 7/64 easily?
It's there - I just didn't read. Shame on me for being lazy.
Thank you for all you do Dutch.. I am a happy user, and word of mouth advertiser.
I didn't see any of the camo when I went to the site. Is it all gone?
also, what color(s) is the underquilt?
Looks good in a light snow. I've hiked that area as well, and it is indeed beautiful. If you wait until spring to hike the Mau Har trail (blue blaze trail); then you will get to see a ton of...
Cool video, thanks for posting it up. I've hiked a bit of those same miles myself, though not all of them yet. Always gives me fond memories and a smile seeing them again.
Very Nice!! I really like how you did that.
I've done my UCRs with a variation of the taut-line hitch, and it works well. Yours looks nice and neat, I'd say better even, and will no doubt work...
I'd love to see a photo of two, of how ya did it
That's nice! Looks like a quick, easy, relatively inexpensive way to get a warm-ish weather under/top quilt. The Travel Throw is a bit smaller (and a bit less expensive too) than the Down Throw. ...
Nice job!! I'm like ole' Brother Bones, and do mine in sections, from Roanoake to Weverton Cliffs so far - and loved every last step & second of it. Including "the suck".
Again, congrats and...
Nice job! & another piece traveled through! Glad y'all made it without any issues (except for that stubbed toe).
I've yet to hike down south way, but am of course - very much looking forward to...
Pretty slick! I can sure see where that, or something like it, would make real cold (and windy) nights spent in the hammock, a whole lot more pleasant.
Nice! I've hiked & hammocked Priest myself. Nice spot with some super nice views (the spot on the cliff where the crevice/crevasse is), though it can be crowded. Spy Rock not very much further...
A single layer of 1.9 will most definitely be enough. At 6'6" i think an eleven foot finished length would be a whole lot more comfortable, and better, for you. Longer if you'd want, but I...
I recently got some stingers, and made each lashit line 14ft. Did a small section hike (3day, Weverton Cliffs to Front Royal) with a friend over this past weekend. First night out, had it around...
VERY cool photos of a what I can only imagine was indeed, a VERY cool hike. Congratulations to both you, and Tala!! The big cat would've made me a little nervous for a second, but how cool is it...
