Check this out, now this is one cool looking hammock
Kayak past a group of Elephant Seals on a rock covered with their droppings for some really nasty smells. Rotten fish breath and gas, excrement, mixed with bird droppings and rotting kelp. Makes...

Welcome TramaRN from a Sonoma County hanger.
Welcome from the wine growing area of Sonoma County! Consider Hendy Woods by Booneville for a camping and day hiking spot. Best part is afterwards you can relax in the Navarro River or go into town...
Sonoma County here, wine county say welcome.
For what I wear when kayaking, (wet suit, booties, gloves, dry top, etc) I fill a large tub with plain water and add 1 cup regular vinegar (about 10 gallons of water.) I agitate the mixture up and...

Camping with the boy scouts before hammocks, although one of the scoutmasters slept in one, we were in the Philippines. Dad was in the Air Force and we went where he got stationed to. This time it...
Camped in a lot of parks in California and have never been approached about hanging in any. Had some Rangers once admiring my set up even. I don't think you'll have any problems.

Welcome to the forums from a NorCal person. I was on Guam in 1948 when I was shot at by Japanese who didn't know the war was over. They didn't locate all of them until the 60"s. Enjoy the...
That area around the lake is barren and dessert. You have to go North on 95 and into Mount Charleston to get into any area with trees for hanging.
I lived on the Philippine Islands for 3 years a while back and because they are on the Pacific ring of fire we experienced 3.0's and 4.0's every couple of weeks. We'd get a 5 now and again. Now...

Boy Scout Camp-out in the Philippines. 1956. On the outskirts of Subic Bay when I was 11 years old. Those in the tents would wake up with monkey tracks across their sleeping bags. Instead of...
On a good note, you did a real neat job there of putting that first rig together.
there's Richardson's Grove just 10 miles south of Garberville. Also the Avenue of the Giant's 20 miles north of there. After that there are the private campgrounds. I've stayed at both...
Those generally have a weight limit of 150 pounds (if your lucky) assigned to them. Unless your a very tiny person, or only 3 years old, they will break on you.

Welcome to the forums from another Nor Cal'er! Need more of us in here. Most of these guys hang from trees that we'd call saplings!!
Another NorCal hanger!! Welcome to the forums!
biggest concern is that your going from 2300 feet to 8000 feet. Plan your trip accordingly. Hanging food is always a good idea, even if to keep the racoons from getting into it.
As far as going...
Motorapido, check out my album "One Tree Hang" for a kayak camping trip I did last year on Lake Sonoma
If we could eliminate Sacramento, Jefferson would be looking better and better.

Should come up to Sonoma County and hang from the Redwood Tree's. I'd suggest grapevines but you'd get in too much trouble doing that.
JRW, another NorCal'er!! Welcome to the forums from Sonoma County!!

Welcome to the forums.
Hey Big V
Fellow Santa Rosan here. I found that for our trees a set of 20 foot straps sometimes comes in handy. I frequent Hendy Woods, Cassinni's, and parks Northward along the coast. Welcome...
Welcome to the forums from a Sonoma County hanger!
It would be nice if everyone who did sign in would go back and add where they are in the State they live in. That way it would be easier to locate hangers who are nearby
I wouldn't go below 10 kn

You ever come down into the country I hang about in, Redwoods, and you'll be switching from 15 to 20 feet like I have. I don't use them to their full length often, but there has been times where...

Their not rated to be used in the suspension of your hammock. Tarps, clotheslines, etc, but not to hold even a small child in a hammock.
I got some for river running, only to find out that they were useless after they got soaked. Like to froze my hands off that day. Water and air temps were in the mid 40's and it was a cold 6 hours...
