    Hey everyone. Just wanted to say that I'm extremely happy that Hotlips took up the reigns this year as I've been too busy to even think about it at this point. Also I unfortunately I won't be able to...

    The Scariest thing to happen to me while in one of my hammocks? Why there is video.

    Ouch, hope you have a quick recovery. Of course that doesn't look like a hammock you are laying in in that pic, so are you sure you didn't hit your head too? :laugh:

    My feeling is that my tarp offers more protection than the ridge-line on my hammock does. Of course I always hang my tarp at least to one side, for those just in case rain showers.

    So my concern is that last year we had more campers than one site could "hold", so we had 2 sites. Although most people camped around Site 4, we did have site 3 as well to keep things kosher.

    Most people who shop Jo Ann's/Hancock's do so when there is a coupon available. Otherwise you could make a table cloth hammock (costs around $10 for the tablecloth) pretty quickly.
