beautifull, i love that place
full time for 3 1/2 years, and camping for 12 years, so thats a lot of nights,
i'm about to add 1 more night to the list
north face cats meow with the zipper removed for a tq and a down quilt underneath, lately ive been using my new wilderness logics summer tq, love it
i really like poinsett ,sp near sumter. you could do a night in congaree and one in poinsett
i sleep in the same hammock in the summer months and use a brazillian in the winter,
i much prefer the mayan though,
:)welcome to hf,
in june a lot of the thru hikers will be through that section, but you will still be required to stay in the shelters , unless they are full.
you could wait around untill it fills up , then hammock...
i had a lost hunting dog take off with one of my moccasins one night.
i was not happy.
i still just put them under the tarp though, some people never learn, huh?
mayan hammcks tend to cost less than camping hammocks, i sleep in a tommy hammaca xx grande in the summer from seaside hammocks , it is the most comfortable hammock ive ever been in, [and i own a lot...
although i have not made the quilt, it sounds like you have a fine resource there in your wife,why not let her take the lead and absorb all the knowledge you can from her.
i'm sure it would be much...
welcome to the forum, great folks here, if you make it to huntington, ill see you there
i have found that on my blackbird i have to rig the uq so that the suspension on the footbox side is wrapped over and around the gathered end of the hammock, essentially holding the uq in place...
i have to agree , if you will be using it for going to ground the extra width helps keep out drafts
i have the ba system, isul air core pad with a mystic bag, to use this system in the hammock i would suggest placing the pad [patially inflated] between the layers of the hammock and using the bag...
debi, thanks for the link:)
debi, that dbl layer hammock sounds interesting, can you tell me where you found it?
after 2 nights in the hammock i decided to get rid of the bed, i did have some soreness in the muscles of my back for a few weeks, but it went away shortly after i got up in the morning and i...
i have the older version, love it, it is going on my thru hike with me in march and i am looking at getting a summer quilt from her as well
how true, i have been hammock camping for over 12 years and continue to be amazed at the knowlege and support of this community.
in my planning for my 2013 thru hike of the AT , i joined another...
i guess it depends on the type of hammock, my mayan needs 12'-6"
my brazillian needs 14-0', i dont think i could hang them with any less space.
of course a camping hammock could get by with a...
heat is really an issue, my dog has a short coat, also was bred for hot climates, but still when she gets the really long tongue its time to stop, i also have a packable fleece lined rain coat that...
i keep salsas blanket, which is actually a fleece blanket about 2'x3' sewn to a piece of tyvek, on her bed at home, that way when we hike , all i have to do is drop it where i want her and she knows...
dogs are banned in the smokies and in baxter,sp, but plenty of dogs have done the rest of it
for me , camping was a way to have alone time, to do something for myself,
started kayaking then backpacking.
i bought a clark ul in 1998 because it looked cool, who knew that 10 years later i...
i will be starting my thru hike in mid march, with my dog 'salsa" a rhodesian ridgeback.
after much consideration , i decided to tent camp, [shudder], till i get to hot springs and then hammock up...
:boggle:i slept in a hammock for 9 years before i even knew there was such a thing as an underquilt, the first time i used a pad in my hammock ,i thought i had found heaven, no more cold butt, but...
i can't help with the hammock issue, but i use a doubled up down quilt suspended under my brazillian hammock with carabiners and bungee cord,
this set up has worked for years for me,
beautifull country out there, i did my first trip "out west" in the four lakes loop area, looks like you had a great trip
thanks rev, i really like santee sp, i have done a fair amount of canoeing on the lakes, rimini swamp is in my opinion one of the most beautifull places in the state.
i'm really gonna try to make...
i would love to make this one , but i will be getting back from my california trip the weekend before and don't think i will be able to do it.
after 2 weeks backpacking i may not be in the mood...
nope , just a couple of 1/4" eye bolts in the studs about 15' apart and 6' up during the day i hang the hammock at one end of the room
The grizzlies are on there way to bubbymans house
count me in, lets figure out where
i'll take a $70.00 hammock overa $1.000 bed anyday
let us know how it works out
i did about 30 knots in my clark ul, had a pine tree come down about 15 feet away, it was a long night!
welcome from murrells inlet,you made a wise choice
i'd check out a wide top quilt anyway, but if you really want a bag then i would look at big agnes
i still have a mayan thick string that i bought from these folks, it is a very comfortable hammock ,but too small for me at 6' tall, it would be a good warm weather hammock for a smaller person
i have that hammock with a fringe for sleeping in during the cooler months , which in sc isn"t very long , i like it a lot, i would not recommend trying to sleep in any hammock with 2 adults, you...
:rolleyes:welcome to the club, watch your wallet!
my 1.0 dbl wbbb keeps the mosquitos at bay here in the s.carolina low country, i use an underquilt so they can't get through anyway, but if you have an inflatable pad then try infating it1/3 of the...
thanks for the info hangnout, i will be sure to let you all know how it works out , i have a trip to the ansel adams in mid sept and i'm sure we will get some cool nights
he should be , she makes a fine product!
i do a fair amount of alpine hiking and i like to tuck the quilt under me when i am forced to go to ground
my ridgeback carries her own gear , i use a tree hugger around the tree then a length of cord
great , and i thought i was done changing gear for a while!
i'd love to check it out , i enjoyed the book a lot
hey wags, no problem , this is what this forum is for,our cottage makers can't improve their designs without input from informed buyers.
it sure made a huge difference for me, i get to sleep faster and spend more time sleeping when i used to toss and turn all night
I assumed this to be the case when considering which tq to buy, when you compress the down it becomes very thin but the climashield has more loft when you compress it, it also seemsto have better...
