super weak!! send him our well-wishes!!!
I used a pencil on the first try. It held but was deformed when I took it out.
I hung on zingit using a keychain beiner as toggle. I'll keep it in mind for a fallback, but I'll stay with the UCR/klemheist.
Easy to tie/adjust/untie. Single strand. I think I'll try it with zing it.
I like it. I'm going to try in a few minutes.
I can't hear your dialogue. Don't know if it's or your end or the server.
Enter me in the giveaway.
That is an impressive list. Very generous of you.
When backpacking time isn't an issue for me, except, when it starts to rain at or near camping time. In that case I would much rather set up my tarp/hammock and be quickly out of the rain. ...
This looks like it's simple enough to remember, easy to adjust/untie & retie. Single strand amsteel is half the weight and bulk of a woopie. Woopie.
I'm guessing that a double sheet bend won't hold. I try to learn as few knots as possible. That way I can do them right.
Well the kids sleep longer.http://images.tapatalk-cdn.com/15/07/28/45f47e7e1da20d9f6e513ad9ac5d76de.jpg
Diy tablecloth hammocks in use.http://images.tapatalk-cdn.com/15/07/28/a0090148fd7591096d254f0e5b0874b3.jpg
I'm posting this because since they are only ten, that qualifies them as new hangers. They usually sleep in bed, but last night they decided to try the bunk...
Two kids for one sleepover in 2 DIY hammocks. Bunk hammocks in the basement.
I can't answer the question, but thought I'd mention my new incubator 30*. When I laid it out next to my UGQ UQ, I thought "this is very narrow". After putting it on my hammock and dialing in the...
I think I'll mention rain too. A friend and I hiked up to just past Long Lake from Horseshoe Meadow. We were going to climb Mt. Langley. Two or three days. Day two starts with rain. We spent the...
In a campground my wife gets her tent up a couple of minutes faster than I get the hammock and tarp up.
Different story when hiking and setting up without the benefit of a designated tent spot...
Olddog I think I'll try that. This summer I've been tying out the tarp with no ridge line, which is fast and easy. Your UCR,SLS looks easy and it provides a place to hang wet gear out of the rain.
I use the same Velcro strips in place of the snake skin. I bunch the tarp ~4' from each end, wrap the Velcro around it, untie one end and stuff it in a mesh bag. Untie the other end, stuff that a d...
Thermo Cell, mosquito repellent device. It should get a good beakin on the trip to Inuvik this coming summer.
I think, when my back starts bothering me, it is due to much at the gym, being dehydrated, or bad posture while reading/watching tv.
Baggy with grounds and a 1 cup expresso maker. It's my only single function item, but worth it.
I've become a coffee snob too, and I pay the membership dues.
Sounds like some low cost down will be coming up soon. If keeping the wife happy means buying new gear, keep that woman smiling.
I have a 5/16 loop of bungee attached to my tie out points. That both keeps it tight and protects it from over tightening and wind...
Stove, coffee, cup.👍☝
I may have to order another, my daughter slept in mine on our last trip. Now she won't use the Blue Ridge.
I have a 2 yr old HG 40 TQ. It's been good to 40. Now it's getting down to 30 so I'll try some long-jones tonight. If I'm still cold I'll probably order a 20. Should have done that to start with.
I've had my 12 for two yrs. Used it about 30 nights I guess. Still in great shape with no leaks that I know of.http://tapatalk.imageshack.com/v2/14/10/19/b27053921234c39911ba64b835d46dd7.jpg
With this set up you also have the option of using the woopie as a UCR if you need the extra few feet.
I secure it it with a klemheist knots and s-beiner.
I have a much faster cheaper and lighter method.
2 large diameter (1.5-2") bamboo poles 8' long. Stake or tie off at 4 & 8 o'clock about 15' apart. Hang the hammock between. I put the poles on a...
Well being late to join the discussion I'm sure I missed some vital information, but if you and Paul are trying to bring water into the hammock, 😅 I suggest removal of the tarp. 😂
No, it isn't an issue. I have spent a lot of time in the back yard in my hammock. It has a tarp over it to give me shade and so I can lay there and watch the rain. I've never seen or felt water...
Mine is tight. I use amsteel and pull it tight before putting on the hammock and tarp.
I also try to put an angle on it. 6-8" difference.
I use a Noah tarp. Weight isn't an issue on a...
Last summer I stayed 2 nights and 1 day near Alpine Az. Very heavy rain both nights. If any water came in on the ridge line it probably ran down the inside of the tarp. I had no...
Order from Papa Smurf at Dream Hammocks.
I go tarp over. It just seems faster. Put up the line, hang the hammock from the same line, toss the tarp over and tie it out. I use 5/32 elastic as tie outs.
No signs of wear from rubbing.
I take the finished hammock length, in inches and multiply by .83. Then I add 10% for the knots. Put a loop knot of your choice on each end and run the woopie through. Adjust the knots the change...
My big concern is size. On my motorcycle space is very important. (I'll order a smaller tarp next month)
I find that separating things into small items makes it easier to find a place for it. I...
I have the 1.7 single layer Blackbirds, and the Double layer 1.1 Danger Bird. The texture of the 1.1 is softer/smoother.
I've read that the double layer is better for preventing mosquitoes from...
I can't play. I don't like Facebook.
Try either reversing the woopie if you need it longer or using a UCR. I secure it with a klemheist knot.92271
1+ I like my Danger Bird best.92257
It has a bugnet and rain cover, very warm with the cover on.92220
Lawson Blue Ridge. It has spreader bars and mine was only 99$ at Sportsman warehouse. It feels like a cot .
Still going strong with the Kealty 12. I'm now putting it in a larger mesh bag with stakes and other tie out gear.
I think I'll get a lighter one...
I switched from the safety pin to using a small klemheist knot.
Let's see what you've done to lighten yours.
Got back yesterday from a 4 day family camp trip to Sand Dunes NP. Took a shower in Zapata Falls 😨.
My daughter wanted to try the Danger Bird on the 2nd night. She is now in the DB and I slept the...
Rocky Mountain National Park.
I have used 9s for the tarp, but now I'm trying klemheist knots .
