I'd be interested in either Lynx UQ.
Temporarily withdrawn from market. I'll repost when I can deal with shipping this out. Thanks for the interest.
Still for sale.
20 degrees F.
Still for sale.
Immaculate condition. Used two nights. Stored hanging on a wall, not even loosely compressed. The reason for selling is that with gathered end hammocks I prefer my peapod.
Green outside, black...
Thanks for all your insights Acer and krshome,
After considering your thoughts I think I will stop at 33" for the head and 26" for the foot end. I had another superb night at those lengths and at...
I shortened the head end dog bones to 33" and the foot end to 26". I slept all night and it was fine for me. Maybe a little less stable, but for me it is perfectly fine. YMMV.
My first test report:
Last night I reduced all the dog bones to 35". (I do use the full spreader bar at the head end.) The overall length apex to apex was 11'3", down from I believe it was 13'. ...
As well, thanks krshome. I will start at the length of the spreader bars.
Thanks for the link gmcttr. That is what I was looking for. No sense reinventing the wheel. I will try shortening as per Acer's tests.
Just wondering if anyone has shortened the triangle suspension lines to reduce the overall length from apex to apex of the Ridgerunner? Just wondering how short a guy could do without...
Sorry everybody, I didn't realize my obligation to post.
I did buy the sleeping bag, no more cold nights in the doghouse anymore!
You are most welcome.
The peapod is great and I really like it. However, I just couldn't like the gathered end hammock and have now gone with a bridge hammock which really works for me. It will...
That's an interesting angle on the topic. I also want to say that I find your posts very thorough and well thought out. I have been reading your posts for years and you were at...
I'd love to see some pictures of this setup, it sounds like what I was thinking of doing.
No pressure, just letting you know that many of us will appreciate any effort you are able to do. Should be very insightful.
To recap, it sounds like the best thing to do is to be very selective, if possible, of initial site selection. Next is to deal with dead standing trees if able and/or permitted to, and always...
I've only had a DIY gathered end hammock and now a new RR. If there is a better hammock than the RR I'd sure like to try that too. The RR has a very flat lay, excellent visibility out the sides, and...

That is an excellent safety reminder. It is never fun learning the hard way though. Thanks for sharing to the rest of us.
Any progression on the pending bridge review? Excellent idea by the way! Looking forward to it.
Love the slug! That is a good idea.
I work in the bush quite a bit and there have been quite a few times over the years where I have seen and/or heard trees go down. It is very common in some storms. I can still remember my dad...
Good idea dirtwheels, I didn't really think of the ridgeline as a protection function. Amsteel could soften the blow at least. Thanks.
I can't believe I missed this. I must pay more attention to the group buy section. I sure admire those that put these together, lots of work I'd bet.
grannypat - "You might see me push on the tree before I tie to it now."
Not a bad idea grannypat. I guess I do that too.
Nice one Spaceweasel, I saw that thread with that tree just missing you. That's what made me think of this.
I don't know if its just me but when I am falling asleep in my hammock and the wind is rattling the trees overhead I can't help but wonder if I missed seeing the one snag that could topple...
I really like that palace. I think some cuben may be in my future. Thanks for the video.
That sure is a cool idea for a hammock suspension, good job on lightening it up.
Like most everyone else, shake as much water off of it in the morning prior to packing it up then set up again that night if still camping. At home I hang it until totally dry before packing for...
With clothes it will probably be fine. By mid next week I will know if it truly is a 0 degree quilt or another wannabe.
unm1136 - if we lived closer we'd be pals! I liked the stories, sounds familiar. Good luck.
I have a ridgerunner and it works very well with my Rayway tarp. Its all about the pullouts.
Does anyone make a canvas sock for a bridge hammock?
unm1136 "my 5.5 pound pack will not be replaced with a lighter one, since it has to be able to haul 120 pounds of meat and be comfortable enough to make 3-5 trips from trailhead to...
Very nice bag. I am so tempted right now! I should but I shouldn't.
Really nice bridge you have created. I follow all of your posts. I really like the fuzzy slippers too! (I hope that didn't sound creepy:eek:)
Thanks for sharing.
I really like my Rayway pack, first thing that I've ever sewed. If I can do it anyone can. Good luck with the sell.
Wow, that is quite a story! Thanks for sharing.
Any holes in these shirts? Mine seem to wear through awful fast.
I would really like to see some pictures of the bag.
Nice! That is pretty good coverage.
Does anyone make a peapod-like (all-in-one) insulation sytem for bridge hammocks yet? I haven't come across anything in my reading and searching but I thought I'd ask anyway. I have a real...
You know in school (and HF) there are two types of people, those that ask all kinds of questions (good and bad) and have all sorts of comments (good and bad) and then there are those that, quietly...
I'll never get to 50 posts.
Now you tell me, I just ordered the RR yesterday. I just sent an email regarding combining shipping.
17"x12" when laid flat on table.
Did you sell this yet?
