Ouch what a kick in the n*#s!
Looks like you guys had a great time maybe someday i will brave the snoey woods.
Seems loke a great idea
I made a groung pad out of an old poncho liner and some sill nylon on the bottom and she carries it in her pack.
Not this time. HAhAHaHAhah
real nice setup.
any questions on what to buy just ask that will keep the cost down.
some really great info in these series.
wow very nice
Bought this pack for my wife about six months ago from ems seems like a great pack and hate too give it up but it is just too big for her. Didnt realize till it was too late to return.
Every part of the trail within the national forest is well marked and cleared off.
Its virtually weightless
I was waiting for the aqua simple also but I think I'm gonna go with a Katadyn Base Camp At 11 oz its not that much of a weight gain and its also made very well.
Ordered one from Bargain outfitters $3.00 shipping how can you beat that? thanks for the find guys!!
Welcome I hang on those same trails and I'm from Venango Co.
My Brother , Me and this year The German Shepard Dog.
I've never been out lower than 40 deg.
After looking at some of the weight of current gear I was rather surprised.
Tarptent Rainbow-35 oz
Neo air (reg) -14 oz
Marmot Helium -38 oz
If you read alot of these post you will notice that most hammock users end up in a blackbird. (cant beat the shelf and foot box.)
Nice moveable camera prop keep up the good work.
Opie you might want to wait here is a link and these smaller versions would give you room in your pack for more Hammock Gear.
This thread could use some pics.
I just couldn't get the pad to stay in place so I went for a crowsnest 3 season .
hey thanks for the gear list template i can just plug my equipment in there and I'll be all set.
If your into diy gear i highly suggest you make one its like having a recliner in the woods around the fire. yes it is a luxury item but well worth it.
I set up shop in the basement a chilly 57deg. woke up and ordered a underquilt the next day.
welcome better order that under quilt the nights are cold.
Stow hard items in a gear hammock and use you backpack as insulation under your legs and feet.
the bushbuddy is cool but not cool enough to spend $120 why so much it looks like just a couple of paint cans?
I don't know if its the right way but I follow two rules don't put my sleeping bag on the very bottom because it might get wet. and heaviest items in first to keep a lower center of gravity.
At about 5 oz the saber cut saw is worth the weight it allows me to get larger log size wood instead of searching a big area for sticks.
And I would highly recommend the flash 50 I've used it...
I think if I was goin on a long extended trip where weight was a major concern I might cut the weight of my cook kit and cut out the crocs but at this point im focused on the comfort and I think my...
I know what your saying about the weight of the jet boil but that's one luxury I'm not willing to part with and the large shamwow is for drying myself off with after a swim in the lake,river, or...
I'm starting this thread to explain to everyone about whats in my pack. Feel free to give me some advice and maybe list whats in your pack. maybe we can learn a thing or two from each other.
There is no doubt that under quilt is the way to go my big Agnes wont stay in place.
Count me in !!
I second that maybe a little North Country Trail?
Hello all I recently purchased a Jeff's Gear Hammock/Pack Cover and I've been trying to brainstorm and try to figure out the best way to attach it to my blackbird. I am trying to stretch it out...
Welcome, that is if your a Steeler fan!!!
Thanks guys all of these sound like really good Ideas I guess I wait till hes all caught up at arrowhead.
The only thing called Aqua Simple on their site is a platypus cap and hose?
I want a ULA Amigo Pro Water Filter but they are no where to be found any suggestions in the 7 oz range I would prefer the sill bag style and not the heavier rubber style thx.
Thanks for all your help I think an under quilt would be almost half the weight of my pad.
Thanks for all the help guys.
At what temps would your average person experience cold shoulder.
I have a Big Agnes Air core inflateable And I was wondering if it will work?
I have been very interested in hammock camping for a wile now but I just wasn't ready to take the financial plunge. After this weekend and a 12+ hour torrential down pour I was more than happy to...
