Go for it. Plane and hammock
The egg is on my face, thanks for straightening me out!
looks like a lot of material to make a tiny enclosed space. Tarps with doors like a superfly seem to accomplish equal or better protection with efficiency of material and flexible deployment. What...
Bushwhacker, if you're representing a company, I believe you are supposed to say as much in your signature. If you're not I apologize for my confusion.
Come to the west side. We have pie.
I made-do with a blue pad and a poly blanket backyard-hanging and car camping (under a used WB edge, $85) until I made a IQ underquilt https://www.hammockforums.net/forum/showthread.php?t=23881 . And...
The Gorge and Grandfather are great destinations, but don't write off the trails around Wilson Creek either - lots of great trails, waterfalls, and views to be had out there, and not quite as...
Hammock and waterfall
I do both, so I don't wrap the hank just stick it in there, and use the bead to hold it close to the bury
Welcome from the west side! You've found the best place to be on the whole internet
I started out in a similar way, new to camping and putting together my gear from scratch on the cheap. A diy insultex underquilt is a cheap easy way to get your bottom insulation covered, but if...
I'd like a like button
I like the lay in my 11'x5' DIY single layer 1.1 much more than my 9.5' ENO DN. I'm a small guy, and only 5'7"
man who eat jellybeans, fart colors.
I took 2 of these bags down to 25° christmas eve. I had my incomplete 7.5oz CS apex under me, with my IX uq under my feet to help snug up the bottom, hot water bottle, base layers and a fleece...
Thank you, and merry christmas!
Man, wish I had this when I did mine a few months back! Nice work!
Thank You! Merry Christmas!
I use one to keep my water bladder cool in the summer... sometimes on day hikes I put lots of ice in the bladder and enjoy a cold drink on the trail.
Let me clarify the shame thing... I don't mean a "PIF slacker thread," but the spreadsheet as-is, or perhaps a "PIF recieved" field. That way everyone can see who has been not holding their end of...
I wonder what this "walk" is you refer to. I don't get my stocking feet off my ground cloth.
But then again, I like to set up a little ways from the group.
Silvr has some good ideas about feedback, but I don't' think the spreadsheet needs to be made more complicated. I'm a member of another vBulletin forum that has feedback ratings, that could be...
Whoopies and guy lines ship first class in a taped up piece of cardboard for 3 stamps, no trip to the post office needed. Requiring priority shipping, tracking, or a trip to the post office would...
I've only done a couple PIF transactions, but I think tracking is unnecessary. Often the return PIF is already posted (and maybe claimed) before the item even gets to the post office. Maybe folks are...
That is how we clear sidewalks and driveways in a neighborhood we have a contract for. Looks like a redmax 7500 - nice blower! I'm about to strap one on for the day. Fast setup... I'd still be...
I recently saw a trick on here that tucked the ends of the whipping under the whipping - nice clean look
The rafters will be the ones supporting most of your weight and keeping the posts from falling in. I hang from the rafters on my porch, and the posts that hold up that roof are 4x4's nailed to the...
When I did use a pad, I found it much more comfortable when I folded a synthetic blanket on top of it. I woke up a tangled mess, but I slept warm to the mid-30's like that.
I turned a whole lot of extra zing-it into gear on the Pay it forward thread.
Next DIYGS order I'm getting the material to make a suspension kit for the PIF thread - until then I'm out of the PIF game. But thanks for the heads-up!
If I could manage to splice the stuff I'd be there, I have 30' of it just laying around.
7/64 gets the job done for us with no extra weight. I'd get 3/32 for myself if they sold it, but I guess that is called dynaglide ;)
I have a pair of LA's on my tarp. They work, but kinda a pain sometimes, especially with cold fingers. I like the bloomgorge key on my other tarp better. But, I'm gonna have to get serious and go...
I use a loop turner from from the craft section instead. A bit tight with 2.2 zing-it, but doable with persuasion. A breeze with 7/64 amsteel.
I like her idea.
I haven't used my Edge since I got my vertex, in car camping situations. My edge rides in my day pack, and has been useful a time or two
Shug, I've thoroughly enjoyed watching your videos for this trip, and it was great to meet the Hickory Bros. in base camp. Looking forward to the next adventure!
I put this on one of my tarps
Push on it. Hard.
I had the privilege to see 2 of Fire In My Bones' insulated hammocks, and I must say, they were pretty slick.

I have a lot of young tulip poplars. Very soft wood and bark, and I can see a whole lot more damage happening on a smooth soft tree with 2" straps than 1" straps, or even big rope, around a gnarly...
Looks like wal-mart found the factory ENO uses.
But the first thing people also bought? Tree straps. :thumbup:
Maybe one could make straps where the first 3 or so feet was 2" material, and the rest was 1" to save weight and work with existing suspension setups?
I heard back from him today, he was out of town and now is going through the backlog of orders. Had it packed and ready to ship before I even paid the invoice. How's that for service? Scott, you da...
Website still had paypal issues as of last night. I sent an email as well, just waiting on a paypal invoice. It has been a few days now, but I'm sure this problem has him backed up. I just hope it is...
I hang my IX UQ loosely in temps like this. Snugger as the temps drop into the 50s
Wet soil makes a better ground than dry soil, as anyone who works with electric fences will know (maybe know all too well!)
Thanks for the tips Sarge. I can't wait to get started!
