Vehicles with familiar stickers should be apparent. I hope.
My cafeteria IS a mishap.
I still beggin for someone to cover the last 4 of my 12 hour shift on Friday. Hey, there is a sucker born every minute. Right?
I need to scan that picture on the wall in Louise's of RF, HB and me. As most of you know, I shy away from getting in pictures, but I am in debt to the Rat who took that one.
No matter where I am, I still find myself looking for hanging sites.
My reputation of setting up in the dark, or in the rain, or both will most certainly apply this time, I'm sure. As long as I am close enough to smell the smoke and far enough away to eat beans.
I plan to be driving in late that Friday or early that Saturday morning. Mike told me Saturday moring he missed me and the girls and really hoped I would make this hang. I told him I would try. It...
Received my LD Cakes Warbonet Bugnet Extenders today from 2QZQ. After a very quick install, I took a short nap in my 11 foot hammock on a particularly bad mosquito afternoon. (graciously provided by...
Thanks for all the posts. I hope to visit the area several times. Luckily, I have some time to make my decision. I did get to experience some mediterranean dining and a famous Columbia cloudburst...
I know there are quite a few folks on here from SC and they are quite a lively bunch. I have an opportunity to relocate to the Columbia area from Burke Co., NC. Hard decision. Any...
Thought you guys might get a kick outta this...
Ever notice that most of the really functional things come out of ideas just that simple? Looking forward to some pictures.:cool:
Sounds like a plan. We NCfolks could carpool. Great video. Daughter (age 8) kept asking "is he serious?" She said he "ain't right", and that is a complement 'round here.
Happy Birthday and welcome to the madness! First time, and in snow! You just ain't right - and that is a true compliment! Way to go!:cool:
"I appreciate rank weather, it illustrates the...
I have been hanging in my unfinished basement by the floor joists. As you know, hanging from that height, I have to have my attachment point quite a distance apart. How about a hybrid TurltleLady...
I would like pictures of that.
And may the sap stay off you! I'm envious.
I did learn recently, if you do get sap on anything (especially yourself) alcohol based hand-gel does a respectable...
This is cool, and reusable. Zip lock bags end up getting trashed (they are not as durable) and end up in the landfill. The color is spot-on, too.
Where do you keep your ridgeline?
I tried a variation of this using, don't laugh, the green wood dowels from my kid's wood block set. I never got it quite right, wrong cordage material, I think. (and technique, and user error, most...
Here is a good question many have found different solutions to. How and where do you pack your tree straps and tarp ridgeline(s)? Mine are in a small re-purposed stuff sack and packed on the...
Welcome! I'm originally from SW GA, but now live in NC by way of NY, FL, AZ, FL again.......
Come on up and play with us in the Linville Gorge sometime.
Love those Eastern hardwoods and pines.
Those Swiss family Robinson boys really know how to live...
As I have said many times before (and borrowed from someone, I'm sure) "If you see me doing something clever, I probably stole it from somebody else."
How is the livermush this morning? Sharing with the beavers?
Same here. Safe at home around 1215 am. Super time. I still like my knife better, Cakes!:laugh:
Kim is right now making her chocolate pecan bars and Amelia is mixing up her trail mix to share. Does anyone require any Hunters Livermush?
That should do it!
You gonna make in May? I'm shooting for Trail Days and a few nights in the Gorge. Using this all as incentive to get brother up from Alabama. Gotta use that new hammock!
Just spent the last few minutes going over the marlin spike hitch with my bro. Got him an ENO for Christmas and put a full whoopie suspension from AHE on it. I believe he is hooked. Next, get him...
Any picture updates on this project?
Had a little problem with my Speer (which I loved, see This) and so L.D. Cakes loaned me a DN for the Spring Gorge Hang.
While shuttling over to Shortoff Mtn, actually got a 2...
By the way, the pit bull is black and white so once the repairs are done, Kim says she is going to re-christen the UQ the pit bull edition.
Man, that dawg is as dumb as a box of rocks.
I put the ridgeline on. I have never touched the whipping. If it works, don't fix it! Yes, the Shamu was on and handled it better than my backside! Does that thing stop bullets, too?
As a bottom exit, it worked too well.:laugh:
I'm guessing about 75 nights. No complaints on the workmanship. I bet there was a small tear that quickly gained some larger aspirations.
It was the pickled eggs?!? **** that Flatline!
Yes, it was a Speer. Super comfy. The reason is still a mystery. Just spent a little lime taking off the suspension and ridgeline. Never knew how somber that could be.
And yes, the cat was...
No, but the way the fabric ripped it left a "pull" in the material that sure looks like one.
Has this ever happened to you? I just got in and was just about to start tweaking my new UQ when BAM!!!! and I'm on the ground.
Thought it was time to shake things up, do something wild and crazy, live on the wild side. I finally got me some whoopies.
Ordered the marlin spike hitch whoopie kit from AHE. It is a good deal...
Keep us posted on your results!
On the Google 'What Do You Love" product, I typed in "hammock" (of course) to see what I would get. Under the "News" tab was this article.
Nothin better than pleasant surprises.
I spotted the article this morning by accident. Some mighty fine quotes in there. Piney-Woods philosophy that I highly recommend.
I actually carry 50' for my tarp ridgeline. I only set up for a single ridgeline at present. I know this isn't the most gram-conscience practice, but I like having the extra cordage for anything...
Not yet, a bit under the weather the last few days, but soon!
Can't say enough thanks to Mac and his most gracious and incredible family. The weather was on the money and even the moon was right on time. Great to meet old friends for the first time! My girls...
The Muttly's will be there.
Distance traveled or between trees?
