I got the Jeanette PM too.
I guess she wants to help me discover Buddhism lol
Nah, I've been past that area mutiple times, but never seen it in person.
I've heard it's stunning.
I think that there's a music festival there sometimes
Have you been there?
So what do you guy's do with wet webbing?
Do you disconnect the webbing and store seperately with the tarp?
Do snake skins or a Bishop bag reduce the risk of the webbing getting the hammock wet?
It looks good :)
Happy Birthday Dude :P
Wow, some really awful stories, and some really good ones.
The worst i've ever seen was on the Port Craig track, which is on the south coast of th South Island.
Someone had obviously boated in...
How can someone be competitive about camping?

We don't get hurricanes down here :P

Hmm, thanks Jeff, more food for thought, I'll remember that :)
The webbing I have has breaking point of one and a half tonne. So I might get away with it.
But I may just buy a new set of longer...
Thanks guys, my webbing more than strong enough, lol.
I've thought about it, and I might invest in some tree hugger's.
I'll just run the current webbing through the huggers and tie it off with a...
And I glad both of you were okay
How often does this actually happen?!
Hello again fella's.
I have found that my hammocks webbing is too short (only 10' each).
can i safely use a knot like the double sheet bend to attach an extension?
Hennessy has a factory set up in a small rural town here in the South Island of New Zealand. He spends the northern Winter here.
It would be amazing to give it a go!
but I might be a little scared to try though...
I'm not scared of heights, but I am scared of falling lol
That's Australia lol :P
We actually only have 2 native species of mammals (bats) and bird's, and a whole lot of native birds. Also no snakes.
So all of my hiking experiences have been predator...
I had a girlfriend complained that tramping back here in New Zealand was boring, there no bear's, no risk lol

While setting up the tent at Port Craig, I noticed that sandflies were swarming all over my blue backpack, which was when I remembered that Blue is the colour that stands out the most for insects.
heh, cool cat.
It was probably the ships cat, and they gave it a hammock :P
And then it got stuffed o_O.
Hmm, I wonder my mother's cat, "Pat", could be taught to sleep in a hammock?
I'm wondering if it's safe to sew the Velcro for a bugnet directly onto a speer type hammock, or if there's another way to attach the Velcro.
And the second question. I'm thinking of spraying...
I seem to have most of this summer off, so I'm think of seeing how far I can walk in a month or two around my home country. So I'll should be a hardened veteran of stealth camping come Autumn
How about using Velcro to attach it to your undercover?
will do :D
They're so cute!
And I agree with Gun Parker.
Hi Alan, do you reguire a ridgeline to holdup the lycra?
I was wondering how wet a fog is going to make my hammock.
If I just have a simple undercover do I have to worry about moisture inside the hammock?
Do I really need to use a...
I'm planning to do the northwest track on Stewart Island, which takes about 11 days.
125km of untouched bush covered coastline :)
