So lucky being close to Kisatchie.
I see the minimum hang distance is 2.5 meters(8.2' ?). Has anyone set up this short?
Maybe a good place to stash some resupply also.
Nice. That's what we are planning.
Can you get a burger and fries at Neels gap Mtn Crossings.
You may need to attach a ridgepole if you are only burying 2'. Constant strain on a post can make it loose and lean in.
I would also add a spot for a big tarp for shade if there are no trees close...
The wife loves the looks of the teardrop trailers. But they are too small for more than one or two people. I've been looking at cargo trailer conversions to travel trailers. You can really fix them...
I'm thinking AC/Heat the whole works. But enough places for a family of four to hang hammocks. When not sleeping, hammocks put up and the entire trailer is open for use.
Or a trailer I can hang my...
If you had a 6x16 cargo trailer. How many hammocks could fit inside. Diagonally, lengthwise, or however they could fit.
I'm thinking I could fit 4. Set them up for minimum distance to hang. So...
No I didn't. Is that close to Woodruff?
Thanks for the comments.
Is the DRT harder than the AT in New Hampshire and Maine? That's about all I have to compare with.
A boy, canoe and hammock. How can that not be fun for all.
I thought I noticed an extra rope for safety line between each hammock.
BTW, if you are the top hammocker bathroom aint an issue :lol:
Try tightening the foot end closer to the wall than the head end. So another words not centered.
I normally cheat to that end all the time. My head closer to the end of the hammock than my feet.
It looks like out troop may be heading to Woodruff in North Georgia next summer. Hopefully in early June. I'll most likely just be an extra driver and will try to hit a trail for 5-6 days until...
I never could get mine to work correctly. Same thing kept happening.
And that is how mine were threaded. Hope you figure it out because I want to try mine again.
Both sons and me have Dariens. There hammocks are 1.1 ripstop. I think they weight 14oz with the woopies attached. Not sure if that's still available.
Mine is 1.7. Love them.
My tarps go in mesh skins. Then fold like an accordian until its about a foot long. The zingit suspension is then rolled around it until it looks like a tube. I can get it to the size of a 1" pipe...
Good tarp. Slept through downpours in it no problems.
Ton's of great places. We rented a cabin through VBRO for a week by Attitash Resort in NH this summer. Me an both sons went hiking backpacking while the rest of the crew stayed at the cabin. We...
When we go somewhere I always remind my kids and wife to check for wallets and phones. When we camp it changes to tree straps and trash. As in check the trees and ground for important stuff and trash...
Not always hang it, but always have a tarp in my pack.
I think I could get out the door in 20 minutes. Just stop at a store for grub.
Ah man, now I have one more place to add to my que of places to see.
Small piece of refletix does the same thing. No need to be bigger than your posterior.
Maybe more complicated than needed. But cool.
I've been enjoying your videos. Thanks.
Welcome. Louisiana is a great state to hang in.
Better get an extra large pee bottle
Welcome. I'm wanting to come see the ponies next year. Maybe see ya on the trail.
Great time. Tiring but fun.
Oldest is 15. Gotta get these trips in before he has other things to do than hang out with dad.
I use a 3/4 UQ and put a sit pad in the top quilt footbox. I use a GG Gorilla so it comes with a pad that doubles as a back pad sit pad. But I would carry a small sit pad if my pack didn't have one....
Thanks for taking a look.
They are still excited about it. We've been watching AT videos all day since getting back home and unpacking.
It is a fun place. I think I could spend days in Grafton Notch State park just exploring trails.
Welcome to the full timer life. I had to sleep in a bed on vacation. Couldn't wait to get home or find some trees to get some good rest.
Here a video my oldest son made from the hike.
It's a tough decision. I tried many different configurations and am still trying. For me bottom insulation and tarp with good suspension makes the trip nice. My favorite hammocks are simple gathered...
We even made a blog by section hiker Idea. Go to day 41 on his blog. Very nice guy. But all the thru and section hikers we met were very nice. They talked with the kids and told stories.
Video from hike.
That's how I stake. I carry ti Sheppard hooks also but added two MSR groundhogs. I have had good luck with just two for the upwind side or for soft ground.
My sons and I took the opportunity to get some hiking in while visiting my sister in Littleton NH. So why not try the toughest hike on the Appalachian Trail.
We got dropped off at the Notch Trail...
I would contact the ranger station about the need for bear canisters. According to this trail guide they are not needed anymore.
I had this hike all planned out for this summer. But things changed...
Maroon bells 4 pass loop. I've studied that hike and have it in my que of hikes to do. About 26 miles.
The only way I can keep mine from rotating a little is double wrap. Of course this means longer straps. But I normally don't worry about it. As long as the pull is somewhat straight.
That will save some weight. How much IDK. Weigh your rings and carabiner. The cinch buckles also are very easy to use. But you will need to separate the tarp from hammock if you already haven't.
Nice work. The three marks on the bottom are a very simple solution.
Better get used to that when TEOTWAWKI comes.
Nice, I love that area.
