North Rose here
Welcome, love the U.P
Could you post some pix please?
Just to add a little. With the webbing and rings system you don’t need a minimum distance between trees. Where you do with Whoopies.
I use both setups, I just find webbing and rings to be more...
Enough to make a second one? :D
If I treated my day hammock (Eno DN) with Permethrin could I forgo a bug net? I love to just lay out by the lake and watch the sun go down but sometimes the skeeters get the best of me.
What kind of bug net is that? It looks pretty universal and exactly what Iím looking for to use on my Eno DN and GTUL.
And information on how I can build or buy one would be greatly appreciated. ...
I do with my gf in a Eno dn. Its not comfie but we make it.
Thank you. How about the other end?
Im not sure if all SRL are adjustable but the one I have looks like a long whoopie. The adjustable end keeps sliding over the hammock.
Could someone please post some pix of the SRL w/ whoopies? How are they hooked to the whoopies?
Suspension: For me, I’ve found that webbing and rings will rise to any occasion in my area (outside Rochester NY). Fairly light, easily adjustable, No length limit, and can be quickly transferred...
Have been .
Iím just throwing a line out to anyone that may have an old set they just wanna get rid of.
Iím looking for a good set of used aluminum snow shoes, Iím 5-11 about 200lbs.
Iíve got about $50.00 total that I have to spend.
Put my name in the hat please.
I won a set of whoopies from the OP and these things are great.
I used the same rings when I started out but they warped out on me after awhile. I’m still using them on one of my hammocks just to see how far they will go before I’m on the ground.
I now have...
Whats the correct side?
It would work but it would be heavy and kinda pointless. I would run a line thru the channels and use a pursik knot to hold the ring. The webbing and rings work just like the cloth belts and it...
Can someone please post a few pix of the Dutch buckle in action for those of use at work (I’m on break of course) that can view the vids?
Could someone please post some close-up pix of your UL w/ whoopies.
Thank you so much!
I’ll be visiting your site for the ridgeline, might as well learn to use both at the same time.
Never used either, this could be my first. Please count me in.
It must be an upstate NY thing. If you like bikes and camping we end up here. Welcome from Sodus point.
Just wondering how the GTUL compares to the ENO DN? I love my DN to hangout with the G/F but I’m always looking to try new things and for the price…………………….
Just East of Rochester NY here.
Wait, Which way is it, Hand up or down?
I use webbing and rings on my ENO BN. I work in Clifton springs so if youíre interested we could meet up and Iíll show you what I use.
I use rings and webbing, but I put slippery halfhitch after.
Im about 15min from Fair Haven shoot me a PM if youd like. we can meet up and go for a ride.
I camp at the Bluff's all the time; I live about 6mi away. BUT I MT bike in or ride the motorcycle so I have it with me when Iím camping. As long as youíre not partying and rising hell you wonít...
He will be fine. He's an upstate NY'er.
Seriously check out the Bluff’s. Send me a P.M I may have time quick hike and I got a couple of kayaks if you’re into it.
cornfield mafia? I still have a CBR929 stunter and an R1 that I rip out every once in a while. Great bikes but I love the dual sports. There’s just something very fun about being able to go down the...
Im out by North Rose NY.
I have a few different bikes but that old (92) DR650 is my favorite. Nobody looks twice at you (unless in a wheelie LOL) low maintenance and a bullet proof motor.
ChimneyBluff’s out passed Sodus is nice.
Its about 35mins east down RT104 from you. Turn Left at the 104 / 414 juc and 3mls down the road.
What do you use them for?
+1 Ive made a hammock and tarp outa lumber covers.
And it keeps going up!
Nice ADV sticker
God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.
I’ve only had it out a handful of times and played with the sag very little. I can get it good for myself but it seems harder to do with the gf.
When I have had the sag set better I got the bathtub...
I know there is a post somewhere, but for the life of me I canít find it again.
I just got an ENO double nest that I switch out the stock suspension for webbing and rings. I double looped 5/32...
You may find someone soft to cuddle up with on those nice sunny days. Then your double nest will be worth its weight in gold, I can ensure you that.
Thats how I did it.
HH is defiantly building on service.
My first hammock was a gatheredend bed sheet. I still used it even after I got a HH and made a few DIY ripstop’s. The G/F and I love just hanging out in it down by the lake. Ripped after three...
Approximate build cost?
Just in case you are unaware of the site. ADVrider.com is a wealth of knowledge and equipment reviews, ride reports, etc….. for the dual sport and sport touring motorcyclist.
BTW I will only...
Also another newbi from upstate NY just stopping by to say howdy. I’m about 35min East Of Rochester NY out by Sodus Point.
