Thats gonna be pretty palatial for Red!
Cool. Parts ordered. Now to whoppiefy Jane's blackbird.
Thanks Dutch. I'll try the .490 then?
That looks seriously awesome! Great pics! Love the pic of the Moon/Venus/Mars conjunction. I was witness to that as well.
Welcome from the lower Hudson valley. You found the right forum for everything you ever wanted or needed to know about hammock camping!
Your name badges look great [o]tter!
In good weather, I usually hang it on the foot end tree (don't ask me why) usually off one of the suspensions using a dim (do it myself) Big Carl pack hanger. Even in bad weather I will hang it...
Hi Georgehammocks424! Welcome to the forum! I'll throw my two cents in about Mahha (which is Mid-Atlantic Hammock Hangers Association). I have been to 3 or 4 Mahha's and I always have a blast. ...
You guys have a great trip! I would be there but have a commitment Sat. night. Looking forward to some paddling adventures down there late winter / early spring!
Hey Dutch, you mentioned that you thought the .625 poles was a bit overkill. For the two of us, combined weight is under 300 lbs. I cannot figure out which tips to get. it doesn't look like there...
I do most of my backpacking trips with AMC (www.outdoors.org). There are various trips both local and further up north, all led by trained leaders. Something else to check out.
I would love to but I'm out of town that w/e unfortunately.
Nice trip. Thanks for the report and great pics!
Ok, I'm beginning to be sorry I posted that pic.. Truth be told I "enhanced" the picture a bit to bring out the vibrant colors..:shades:
I would but I have jury duty on Friday and Monday..
I cannot swing this hang. Just too far for me to travel for a one nighter.. Have a great hang all!
Great video report! Nice work and a great hang!
Out of town that weekend unfortunately. Have a safe trip.
Trip report started here
Using mine for my gear loft hammock that will quickly attach to my hammock suspension
The NJ Winter Hang was a blast!!
In my opinion the reports of deluge rain was a bit exaggerated with most of the rain ending quite early on Saturday. There was a lot of humidity/condensation...
Rules? I don need no stinkin' rules!! :sleep: And I don't think I'm going to get votes for my chili except from maybe those that can handle a lot of heat! (or have lost taste buds due to other...
Cooking for Sat night.. :-)
Big experiment going on here in my kitchen with stew meat marinated in marinated chipotle peppers, ancho chile, green chile... onions, garlic... cumin, oregano, poblano pepper.... it's gonna be some...
No problemo! See you saturday.. SS did you get my PM with car info?
I responded to this earlier but no one replied. I have a RA account but in NY state.. whatever. If you need me to do something let me know. Happy to help.
EDIT:: I am not arriving until...
PM coming this morning with my car info.
You get an Amen from me on the flat fee for site reservations and balance to charity. Makes sense and doesn't require recalculations when people either...
Ummm some interesting weather possibilities for this weekend...
I don't know the deal if I am from out of state (which I am - NY), but I do have a RA account if I can help.
I'm a definite maybe on this.
Edit: I don't have a pulk but I think I could dig up an old plastic sled (i guess depending on the trail conditions), or with just an overnighter being only .5 mi...
It's lookin' like a mighty good hang! Starting to get stoked... re-rigged my supa-fli with tarp flies to match. now i got a supa-dupa-fli!
Changed my entree to chili but I'm going to make it...
Glad to hear it wasn't more serious, but still serious enough! It does illustrate the dangers of cold weather camping, exposure and how quickly things can go wrong.
So i did look at what Waze is and it seems pretty cool. I may take you up on this just to be safe.. Can you leave your cell phone by a nice pair of unoccupied trees? :cool:
Was wondering the same thing...
ok, im definitely leaning towards a Friday night arrival.
Hey mrcheviot, not sure what wake is but think I'll be alright.. I might get a phone number though before I start out. Thanks
I started grand jury duty Monday and I will be in court on the 23rd so my choices are to come down sat morning or Friday night. I'm thinking I could be down there by 10 pm Friday but have never been...
I went down to my local Dutch Emporium to find some of the premium Reflectanium. I was told I might have to wait a millenium, but I was reassured that it did not contain aluminum, uranium or...
Hope there's no permanent damage Sky. Wow!
Looks like a fun time was had! A couple questions, and I don't want to hijack the thread but I am thinking about Neo overshoes and wondering if you all discussed sizing and what you wore underneath...
Got an Excalibur dehydrator.
Great trip report! Glad you made it out without hypothermia!
I may have to enter my "Suede-ritos".. I have been refining my from scratch chipotle enchilada sauce.
Hey guys! Have a great hang! Unfortunately having an adult beverage around the fire is one of my guilty pleasures so as they say on Shark Tank.. "I'm out".. ;)
It really is a cool idea (now I know what those were in your box of goodies at MAHHA). Not needing that tree triangle to tandem hang, I may go back to that with the wifey. Really will simplify that.
Yea! Looking forward to seeing you two as well!
Good to hear! Jane is still up for a "brisket-off" so we need to plan that for the spring. She bottoms out around the same temp as Kristen.
