That is a beautiful location.
That looks like a great set-up on a really nice site. How do you keep the dew from settling on your hammock if you do not set up your tarp at all?
That looks great.
Looks like fun. I don't think I have ever seen a canoe packed with so much equipment.
I bought a Jarbridge a couple of years ago and really enjoy it. I was looking at the Potomac myself for my HH Expedition Deluxe but this current sale does not seem to benefit Canadians.
I have owned the HH Expedition Deluxe with the Hex Tarp for three years now and only two days past did I swop out the heavy and bulky rope suspension that Hennessy uses for whoopies*. Doing this...
The booking system shows Maple Leaf North with two sites, and Maple Leaf South with five sites. It also shows how many are available. i.e. Maple Leaf North Sites Remaining: 0/2, Maple Leaf South...
I did the small loop of the Western Uplands trails two-years ago with my wife. We did the loop over 3 nights 4 days at a very leisurely pace. Not a very memorable trail, mainly dark forest with...
I agree about calling. They will switch everything to CDN dollars. You can also upgrade to the bigger tarp at no extra charge and get the snake skins included if you deal directly.
I have a Kelty, 2 SuperFly, and a Hennessy. I still take the Kelty when canoe camping for a kitchen/group tarp and take the Kelty along when backpacking with my family. Yes it is heavier than the...
I just ordered a second set from her for my second SuperFly. The quality of her work is outstanding.
Arms out with two poles is by far the easiest, especially when the ground is uneven. You can very quickly decide between several tree pairings using this method. I find this handy when back backing...
That was a fun trip report. I was wondering why I had not seen any of your video's recently and now I know why. Glad your knees are better! I too am curious about the six foot long hiking poles at...
I too went with the two descending rings with a carabiner. I find setting up is now easier and I can make simple adjustments at both ends faster.
That was a fun video. Beautiful dog and some lovely scenery. I too enjoyed the fishing scenes.
I have have a Kelly Noah 12 that I bring along for the kitchen area when canoe and car camping. It adds too much weight for backpacking.
I use the little pockets on my Hex tarp and I have no issue getting the Hennessy snakeskins on. I do plan on swopping out the cord that Hennessy provides for the guy lines one of these days as the...
I made a reflectix pad and put it slightly under me and to the left of the head end of my hammock. I then secure my 70 lb. dog in the same fashion as Boothill and his shepherd. Before bedtime I use...
That was a great report. You certainly were tested on this outing. Lots of lessons in this trip.
I always pack a sleep outfit that I also wear in camp if all my hiking clothes are wet. This...
Those are some terrific photos. And not many trees. Looks like the entire group was working hard on this trail. I am sure your hard work is appreciated by many.
Beautiful spot. It is definitely special when you can spend time in the woods with your children. My nine-year old daughter and I went on a four-day backpacking trip in June and it was great. We did...
I was surprised that I did not see a copy of Jeff's Map for Algonquin Provincial Park in your video. It shows all the canoe routes with travel times, what type of fish can be found in each lake,...
Great video. Thanks for sharing. So how do you get two hammocks side by side, using the same two trees? Could be handy when backpacking with my wife.
Just got done ordering a new Jarbridge for myself. Too many great reviews from a well respected forum vendor to pass up.
It is always nice to read when a company provides good service and stands behind their products.
That 20% discount for members serving with the military is also a nice touch.
4 lbs 4 oz is too heavy for me.
Welcome to the forum.
Welcome to the forum. I too would love to see some pics!
The main forum is great for information concerning hammocks. The donating forum is great for information concerning any activity you can think of doing with your hammock. I now spend more time...
Thanks for the reply.
Glad it is working out for you. You will definitely appreciate the separate snakeskins the first time you need to set up or tear down in a hard rain.
After every trip it is important to make sure...
Looks like a great place for a large group of hammock campers. Thanks for sharing.
Welcome to the forum. Beautiful photos. Enjoy yourself.
Welcome from Quebec.
I have the Explorer Deluxe hammock with the Hex tarp. I use the snakeskins with my Hex tarp which hangs independently of my hammock. I have another set of snakeskins made by Mountain Goat which I...
Sounds like you had a great time. I have never even considered this park before but it sounds great. I do like the idea of reservable sites (unlike APP where you reserve by lake). While I do...
Looks like you had a great time. Thanks for sharing. Every time I see someone's trip report from that trail I get jealous. My plans to complete the entire loop keep getting pushed to "next year". ...
Welcome to the forum.
I have watched many of Kevin Callan's canoeing videos about his trips through Algonquin Provincial Park and enjoyed them all. Only in Canada can a person have rock star...
I am looking at the Wilderness Logics full length underquilt and one of the options is "Extra Loops" at $5/loop, four maximum. What are these loops for and why would I need them? I have two...
I agree with this. My 14-year old boy weighs 140+ lbs. and has not stopped growing. When he was 12, he weighed 103 lbs. You are not saving any money if you need to replace the hammock in a year or...
That could be handy. I have a collection of small canisters that could be consolidated into one or two full canisters. Thanks for the review.
I am in with no colour preference.
Welcome to the forum! It certainly sounds like you have been bitten by the hammock bug. Good luck.
Welcome to the forum from western Quebec.
Thanks for the suggestion. I am always looking for nice loop trails that can be easily completed in three to four days. I am still hoping to do the Killarney La Cloche trail but I would need my...
Thanks for all the kind comments. It really was special spending one on one time over four days with my daughter. My daughter continues to add little tidbits of information and camping comments...
Sounds like you had a challenging but great trip. I enjoyed your photos. Thanks for sharing.
I have a Hex Fly with my Hennessy Hammock and the SuperFly with my Warbonnet Blackbird. I noticed this past weekend that the coverage of the Superfly is larger than the Hex fly, weighs less, and...
I have made several orders of Dutchware and have always been happy with my purchases. I am always pleasantly surprised by his cheap and fast shipping to Canada. I am off to place another order.
Beautiful photos! It looks like the two of you had a great time.
