Thankx for the pics
very nice video and a great looking area.
Welcome from Canada. Your going to enjoy the comfort and ease of a hammock. There is a learning curve but its worth it. Once you learn to set your hammock up the same all the time it will give you...
Neither canvas or synthetic tents hold the heat long once the fire is out. Synthetic has a tendency to get condensation on the inside whereas canvas breathes. Canvas is more for car camping or...
Keep an eye on your spark arrester as they have a tendency to clog up
Looking good. I got some heavy duty zippers from an upholstery place for the ends of my shelter. Have you thought about running the pipe out the top of the side wall on a 45 degree? . Keeps the...
Nice looking country, thanks for sharing.
Thanks Cinnamon, i couldn’t remember Teepee's name here on HF,,its been a while.
I had another look at the video. I think if were me i would do one of two things , i would either put the stove pipe out through the top of the side wall or go out just about the side wall. If you've...
Its possible your talking about Teepee from England who went to northern Sweden and was in very cold temps. But i'm not sure how to find that post. Ok so i can't find his thread here so maybe he has...
Wiggies sleeping bag isn't made for hammocks but it works. If its just your husband your thinking about then i would go with a canvas shelter over top of the hammock with a small stove. O don't have...
Nice TZ. So i imagine that your probably going to switch the stove pipe exit to the side of the tent??, which is, as you know, where most folks hot tenting arrange theirs. That will then facilitate...
At those temps you might want to go with what's called a peapod system. Wiggies sleeping bag with centre zipper that fits over your whole hammock. You'll need a tarp that has doors and set it so the...
Your welcome , glad some of what i say makes sense to someone.
Hey Bluefin; yes its true i have been away for a while, life threw me a few curve balls so it takes time to process, also we had...
Looks warm. We had 3' of snow last night.
Nice to see the pup along, thanks for sharing
You must have sensed me posting as i haven't been around much either. Hope you are doing well as well.
+1 to that
The key isn't planting ourself in dramatic scenery all the time but to appreciate nature in general. Once a person gets out of the city there are prairies, mts ,woodlands and lakes...
Thanks HK. Been dealing with life stuff, no paddling etc. Yesterday was a nice day, thanks.
A bit more grey?? The avatar pic was from several years ago. Life handed me some challenges, i guess it came out in my beard.
Glad i could help
Thanks Red, hope you are well.
Thanks Buddy. We're getting older but we don't need to stop yet. Life came with some major hits over the last couple of years but nature is always there waiting for us.
This area is pretty...
Like the title says, don't let the rain keep you indoors.
Arrival, confluence of Kock Creek and Little Slocan River.
2QZQ's UQP is a standard part of my gear. It helps to stop heat being pulled off your UQ. It helps create a micro climate between you and the weather. It also gives you a place to store a few light...
Looks like a great place,,,thanks for sharing
My first bear sighting was a very long time ago and was very exciting. I still get excited after having had hundreds of encounters . Watch out for rangers
Welcome from the Kootenays
Thanks for posting,,,so much history in those mnts.
Good stuff Shug. Nice to see you out on the water. Some beautiful hang spots. Surprised to hear you guys talk about portage distance in rods. That's not the only thing you do different than us...
Like your enthusiasm.
Good stuff. I've been riding again lately,,fun.
I hope someone takes you up on your offer so you can feel relaxed on your first trip. Its good to be cautious when entering new territory. Having said that, as someone who lives in bear country,...
Looks like you found the spot. The SW interests me, but generally too hot for this northern cowboy.
The only stove jacks i've used have been from snowtrekker.
Nice video shug. Sunshine in the woods by the river,,doesn't get much better.
Great video, thanks
Great lookin place,,thanks
Another option for camping is forest service rec sites. Not as busy, not as developed, usually placed by some natural feature like a creek or waterfall , lake etc.. Usually don't accommodate RV's and...
Seeing as your on a motorcycle i would spend some time googling motorcycle trips in the Canadian Rockies and see if you can glean any tips.
I've been through the Banff area numerous times on a...
In the major parks most tourists don't venture very far, 1/2 mile , and sometimes you'll find that your only allowed to camp in the designated site and not on the trees a few meters away. This is an...
Nice to see the beautiful area you were in. Love that water running with snow and a blue sky. And i'm with ya shug. If we can get out into the woods and breathe, life is good.
Looks beautiful. Thanks
A hammock is a permenent fixture in my living room. Naps happen everal days a week.

Bushcraft outfitters has a 10x10 & 10x12 that has 19 attatchment loops, might work for your needs.
Looks like a good time. Thanks for sharing.
The only piece of gear that i take that gets used in a multi purpose way on almost every trip is my knife, as in cutting,splitting and striker for firesteel. Next would be my hammock ,as in sitting...
