This what I do as well; everything is attacked, nothing for me to leave behind.
I could use Dutchware instead of carabiners (to save weight) but the carabiners can serve double duty when needed.
Updated site map and list.
I have sent a few PMs out to members who have paid but not contacted me for a site assignment. 26 sites are currently assigned so get those requests in before...
Here is the current site map and reservation list. Please look it over and let me know of any corrections that need to be made.
Reserving your site:
Just a heads-up not pointing this at any one person directly; but I know how we are (see how I included myself there?).
I am in the Air Conditioning business, when it's 105°...
You make you're reservation here, pay OldGringo then pm me for a site.
Shiny! I'll check my gear fund when I get home tonight;I want these...
That is the approximate number of hangers per site; if it is blank it is unknown, a zero means hammock stands only.
I'm just here for the food, and to collect money, and show off my new car... [emoji1]
Updated site assignments.
Food is serious business, don't be joking about food, man...
If nominated I will not run, if elected I will not...whoa am I kidding? I own this place!
Yea, that's not coffee...
Updated site assignments.
Pretty self explanatory; but if you have questions send me a PM.
Yep, great starter gear; I've been using my starter hammock for 6 years now! :shades:
Nothing wrong with that tarp, not my color, but hey, not everyone has my taste.
Each system takes as long as it takes; that;s just the way it is. However, if it takes you 30 minutes to set up a hammock you are doing it wrong!
I don't fiddle with my field kit while in the...
How about, "It isn't as fun if you can remember it!"?
A little glitchy out of the gate, but I'll get the hang of it.
Here is what the site assignment is going to look like. I don't need to know every person in your site, just the name of the primary (your screen name) and, if you want, how many will be in the site....
Once you have paid OldGringo send me a PM with your site selection so I can get you on the map.
The Rat Mischief is in!
Stop looking for reservations, they are gone, we are attempting to streamline the process a little; wait for the FAQ post all will be revealed.
They are several primitive camps among the Goodwater Trail; this is where I usually hang. Of course, there is always stealth camping as well and they are many good spots for this along the loop.
For me stretch makes me uncomfortable in my shoulders. Granted, my shoulders, as well as the rest of my body, has seen some pretty serious abuse.
What happens is through out the night the nylon...
I don't go to State Parks unless it's with a hammock hang. At least at a hang if my stuff goes missing there is something left to replace it! J/K that's only happened once...
Don't camp where you...
I think this is it largely; old timers get tired of seeing the same question posted nine thousand times when a simple search would give the answer. Or seeing the same image from facebook posted three...
You're way over thinking this (don't worry happens a lot over here). Think of an underquilt and a top quilt like a two part sleeping bag; let's call this the base line.
A 40° underquilt and 40°...
It was perfect, cold at night shorts during the day!
Oh yea, we had hammocks there too!
Saturday nights are made for campfires and FOOD!
What happens when you throw the dog toy into the tree top?
We had a full cast of the usual suspects, even though it was weird for me to go without my beautiful wife and loving son. They had to stay home due to being so sick they could barely walk.
I'm uploading the images now, gonna be a little bit before I can post 'em.
I had a great time, as usual, with my fellow hammockers. And McKinney Falls is a great park, if you can ignore the...
Same with me, I'm willing to share. Looks like it's just going to be me from my family, everyone else is sick.
Once again proving you can find ANYTHING on Youtube.
If you need some new stimuli don't miss the McKinney Falls hang; the forum is great but the hangs are bee's knees!
And welcome from big ol' Bertram!
We can stay at my house, watch the big tv, sit on a nice couch; and then head over to MFSP each the morning.
Never trust a skinny cook! Draw your own inference...! :shades:
Yep, great crappie lake, and white bass too. Crossbow are allowed only if you can't medically shot a regular bow. They are allowed on the wma, but not at our hunt.
I make gasless beans, really. [emoji1] However, if you are a fan of the harmony I can make them the traditional way!
Plenty of bangs! Last year we lost a prop completely, broke one off at the hub, trashed a lower unit and put a hole in one boat! Plenty of bangs to go around.
Here's a shot of me and the crew...
Uncle Mike, if you do cornbread I'll do pinto beans; beans and cornbread baby (and rice, yea)!
It's that time of the year again. The 15th annual Granger Ranger Xtreme Hunt.
This is an extreme hunt, that means no food is allowed. Archery gear for hunting wild pigs and small game only....
7 minutes, they lasted a whole 7 minutes!
They may sell firewood most State Parks do. Save your money; I plan on bringing wood from home and I can bring enough for two almost as easy.
Nice! I also like the logo, I would definitely sport a tee-shirt or a sticker on my laptop/truck.
Tarpless is best for me, but a high tarp is my style when its up. Even when it's raining I'll try to use something like a modified Baker's hut or a stick/pole for a a rain peak. That's why I love the...
The footbox on the Owyhee is a draw string closure (at the very bottom) and Omnitape up to the knee. It is not narrow at all on my size 10 feet, plenty of room.
If I were going to buy a new machine; it would be an old one.
