You might want to rethink the going to ground when it rains.
Something that has works very well is we ask others on the forum what works best for them taking into account there/your heigth and weight.
Nice report Paul. Enjoyed the picts and video.
Nice tarp, excellent report thanks
Nice dslr looking forward to seeing what you capture with it.
Good luck on the grear shakedown.
Yes. One nice feature Dreamhammocks offers is additional zipper pulls.
For instance if you get a covered hammock having a vent(1 zipper pull each side) and having a pair of additional pulls on the...
Hi Gresh, Oh my I am not sure. I told Papa I wanted more support and little stretch I don't think its ripstop. Sorry I could not be more helpful.
I own two Dream hammocks one for winter and one for summer. I am 5'8" 190#.
Both of my hammocks are SL 11'x60" and they are perfect for me.
The one tip I will suggest is get enough zipper...
I love using my hammock as a camp chair without the sides digging into the back of my legs. So adjust accordingly. hth
Welcome to the forum treyb0 glad to hear the site was helpful in your research for that perfect hammock. Let's see some picts when you get it.
I am going to guess yes because you raise the footend to improve the lay and to keep from waking up in the footbox.
Nice report thank you.
I never was a fan of Shepard Hooks.
Nice job Jacob thank you.
This is not a hunting forum. The free side of HF is pretty strict. All topics must be hammock or hammock accessory related.
They just scrunch up at the tarps D rings.
What a great way to start my morning. Thanks you guys that was great.
Loved Ducktape's air guitaring with his hiking pole while you were grasping for words and air during your bushwack, too funny.
Oh heck this is a two year old thread brought back to the front page.
I though I was reading a new trip report. I don't always check the post date my bad.
IS it just me? I don't see any pictures in the first post.
A set of 20's really do cover just about all normal hanging temps. They are the most universal.
Full on winter camping usually means you need an extra coat over pant gloves hats food fuel. It all...
0F full length quilts will take up about 15L each. So there's 30 of your 55.
When I pack my winter hammock kit I use a 90L pack and a pulk sled and when I pack my Fall/Spring 20F quilts I use my...
That looks very nice. Thanks for sharing your pictures. I hope you will do some trip reports with your new kit I would love to see more of your beautiful country from a hammockers perspective.
I did not find your solo trip the least bit boring. These are my kind of trips.
Loved your stove show and tell and for the official record... Heah tell me about your stove. Now you can officially...
As long as you removed the XLC bug net it should work fine.
Do to the placement of the XLC zipper I would think a dutch style cover(pull over your head and close with a draw string at the gathered...
My garmin GPS software allows me to draw up a track (trail) and then it has a feature I can overlay it to google earth to see what is near the track.
Looks like a really nice hanging spot. Thanks for the report and picts.
Nice writeup Mickey thanks for sharing the lessons learned.
Great TR. Love the saw project nicely done. Caelan is one lucky youngman to have two excellent winter camping teachers.
Nice TR Peter thanks. Looking forward to see more of your country thru your lens.
Hi Bill, That doesn't sound crazy at all.
I sure like your idea of raised baffles on the inside of an UQ to kind of fill in the gaps. What one gets with a sewn thru UQ.
As you, I would not want to...
I replace my UQ shockcord every other year just for good measure.
I do keep a hammock kit setup on my screened in deck year round and try to get out there a couple nights a week.
So the shockcords...
What a great idea to go hunt ice at your favorite waterfall. Nicely done, thanks for sharing.
Hot water bottle trick is the best and you will have warm water to get breakfast started in the morning.
Candle lanterns get super hot and would burn your gear if it touched it.
Thanks Grapenut that was real nice. The Walls were my stomping grounds as a boy growing up in Huntsville/Lacy's Spring.
I have not been back in over 36 years and I miss it.
Packing based on the forecast, in winter, can leave you unprepared should things change for the worse.
In winter I usually know the area I'm hanging in very well and I limit my distance from the...
Man that looked like a great time. Congrats on the new records for some. Thank you for sharing the picts.
No they are not. In almosts every case the UQ is not fitting correctly do to operator error in the install and or proper adjustment.
Some hammocks are just designed wrong for an UQ to fit properly. ...
I think I would figure out why the UQ is not fitting properly. I don't think the BBO is shaped correctly to use as an UQ suspension aid.
Hi Bruciehi5, It's been awhile. Glad to see you are still getting out and shooting your adventures thank so much for sharing them.
Simple strong nothing extra unless you want it as an option. Very nice. Subscribing to this thread can't wait to see more.
Peeps that sleep in VB clothing don't get moisture on their pads.
UGQ's will make you a tarp with a thicker silnylon.
I sure would not try to use one for a camping hammock unless it was for a child but it sounds like a nice day hike seat or place to read for an hour or two.
Well down only captures and holds the heat you generate. It might not be your quilts fault.
You might be experiencing one of the first signs of getting older. Poor circulation in the feet. If there...
ufdigga, I live in Littleton. Near C470 and Wadsworth.
I have several tarp you are welcome to come by an look at. If we pick a nice day you could bring your hammock over and we could set it up in...
Life does not get any better than that my friend.
Thanks so much for sharing your adventure.
All this work you have been doing to tune your hammock kit has really paid off.
Thank you bubba. Hopefully this video will help the OP build his hammock.
Battery Operated Fan hung on the RL. Don't forget extra battreries. Lithium ION weight the least and last the longest.
Single layer bugnetted hammock, 12x10 tarp no doors.
I still take summer...
So if I'm reading this right. Both hammocks have a stitched end and they put a piece of string in that channel to make the ball more substantial this insures the larks head knot of the hammock...
I wish I had better picts but I can see no cords running thru a channel on the WB or WL.
WBBB XLC 11'
Well I would not use the channel anymore since the material has been compromised.
