Merry Christmas! I'm in.
Awesome! I'm in please, Merry Christmas!
Marion guy here,still assembling my gear, but would love to try a group thingy.
Nice videography ing ! Again wish I could have made it.
Wish I could have made it, weather and all. Next year for sure.
Methane pew.....snort. That a phrase I had not heard but like immediately. Sorry, I'm twelve years old at heart, and my wife doesn't like when I say f@rt. :)
I ordered the materials from DIY Gear Supply this morning, an employees wife is going to give the assembly of said materials a whirl. She is a fairly serious quilter/sewing hobbiest, I am sure she...
That gear list is very impressively organized, especially since I am a guy who lists are usually written in chalk on the bottom of my shoe, or whatever else is handy, when I think "Oh crap I need to...
I am always interested in other people's gear lists as well, I am an experienced camper but a newb hammocker.
At the risk of offering nothing useful, I used to hang out at popupexplorer.com. There are a lot of people/threads there who know all the ins and outs of Fort Wilderness. I am sure no hammock info,...
Wish I had 58 dollars!
I'd still love to come, but probably won't know for sure until that Friday. Dang work and Family!
Looks like a blast!
Awesome. I can't wait to get back to the BWCA next year.
EDIT. We were on Sawbill, Burnt, Smoke this summer. Love it. I would love to do the loop but I would need 2 weeks with my age and physical...
Hello from Marion!
I would love to this! Set the date and I will try to make it!
I'm in please and thanks!
Somebody tell me how to do a permanent ridge line on this thing, test hang in the basement is going well.(bug net version)
I bought one of each, why? I have no idea, The exciting atmosphere of a limited time deal lured me in! Actually, My son wants to see if he can rig the no net version up in his dorm room this fall.
Sweet, I will review my maps tomorrow. :) I can look at maps for hours.
It was warmer than we thought it was going to be, lows in the low 60"s I would guess, I need to get a Shug style thermometer to record lows and highs. He had a 15 degree bag and slept in his skivvies...
We had rain and snakes and bees as well, oh my! Sounds like an awesome trip!
What part of the BWCA? I need a trip idea for next year.
Walleye were sporadic, but we caught enough to make a meal or two. I don't think Burnt has lakers, it is pretty shallow. The smallies were so much fun! Hammering top water plugs the 1st day,...
I think that Hennessy may be SN 001, but it is like new, the only down side to yellow, the island we camped on had a huge hive of bees in a tree nearby, and they thought the yellow hammock and canoes...
I found this forum a few months ago. After reading everything I could, and becoming confused by all the terms, I jumped in and bought a used Hennessy Hammock on ebay. My son used it in...
I bought this on EBay, looks and works good so far! Possibly the 1st Hennessy ever made, but in great shape. Not a stain or tear that I can see. We will never have trouble finding this banana in the...
The HHS is on the way. we will see how it works, and what kind of shape it is in. I am about 5'9" and 180 lbs.
I'll be up for an Iowa hang when my hammock gets here, and I get a little experience.
I bought the eBay hammock, I get a little excited at auctions, I probably over paid, but am excited at the prospect of a ready to go outfit to get started with.
The pictures shows it tied to his garage wall somehow,but no tree huggers I am sure.
I found an old Hennesssy Hammock on line for 45 bucks. It is Yellow, bottem entry, bug net, rain fly. That's all the seller knows. Why wouldn't this be a cheap way to see if I like hammocks? I've...
Mt. Vernon huh?, I'm just up the road in Marion.
I googled "Bwca trip reports", my sons and I are planning another trip after a few years layoff, and lo and behold I found the Shug's videos, (like so many others before me). That was...
