The tarp is held up with MSR 5' adjustable poles. They're not getting packed so there was no weight consideration.
This is definitely not as spectacular as the other posts on this thread, but for me it was awesome. After a pericardiocentesis, a diagnosis of G4 squamous cell carcinoma of unknown primary, one...
First of all, thanks for taking on this project.
With regards to two individual Ga state parks, Unicoi has allowed hammocks, Moccasin Creek does not.
A loaded (TQ, UQ, and BMBH) Slug will stuff into the sleeping bag compartment of my old The Works @ Mystery Ranch Groove. The Slug material is very slick.
The forum administers no castigation for doing stupid things. It's better than marriage....Wait!...I need to get up and leave the room. A feeling is in the wind!
Well wishes go out to Kat with her recent RA flare-up.
If you think an item in which you are you are interested is priced too high, make an offer via PM. If you are not interested in the item, what difference does the asking price make? BTW I am more...
Friends are over rated. I used to have friends, and all they wanted was to borrow money, use a vehicle, or need help moving.Now I now avoid friendship.
Have you considered renting? For a once a year trip, it might make sense. There are surely other outfitters renting hammocks, as well.
IMO It would be easier to add insulation to the MW3 than to vent the MW4. I am a cold sleeper, usually 10° off ratings, and have had the MW3 into the low twenties with the addition of a 2QZQ UQP, a...
Received an order on Monday from BearPaw WD. USPS had roughed up the package, and a couple small items were missing. An email was sent to let the vendor know what had happened, and today replacement...
Just as a follow-up, a ridgeline has been set to keep the outer edges of the primary rings at 104.5". The running end of the web straps stay strung through the primary rings and threaded back through...

Could a grosgrain ribbon be secured to the tarp using Seam Grip?
Thanks, That looks fantastic!
Thanks for the advice!
Thanks for sharing this! Lots of options presented. Does the double pole mod work well in awning mode?
Just for some clarification, my hammock is the UL version; 105" max.
After re-reading the instructions, there must be some subjectivity when it comes to the word "taut". From my perspective, the...
Hahahaha! Here's to Jacks' built in abuse resistance! I just hooked an adjustable ridgeline to the end rings, and stretched the hammock to about the same tension I had it for my first night out. I...
Welcome to Hammock Forums and hello from GA. Looking forward to getting to hang in your area!
I agree. If it weren't for this thread, I would have no knowledge of the Secret Knot Club.
Sorry for bringing up an old thread, but have there been pics of this posted?
Does anyone familiar with the Banff area know of a moderately semi-secluded backcountry campsite below tree line? Possibly, a three-day loop in the Yoho, Kootenay, Mt. Asiniboine vicinity? anywhere...
There is not a better forum than Hammock Forums on the world wide web! YMMV
Is there a secret handshake?
It looks like Banff is the consensus choice for those who have not been. Thanks for the replies, even though posting this question in the trip planning section, probably, would have been more...
An incredible opportunity has presented itself, as opposed to its elf...However, I do want to, "Thank you for lettin' be be mice elf..."...Anyway, if all travel expenses were paid, and the choice of...
First off JRB ROCKS! Thanks Jacks! The 3 Seasons Special was ordered Wednesday afternoon, and was slept in Saturday night; great purchasing experience!
This is my noob perspective of my first...
It wasn't pretty, but I got one night in the hammock under my belt. The system and techniques are not nearly as intuitive and easy as y'all experts make them look. My hat's off to you, and thanks...
Come and listen to my story 'bout a fartintone.
A poor workin' man likes to spend his time alone,
and then one day while a surfin' his mind numb,
up on his screen popped a Hammock Forum;...
A big thank you to everybody who posts on this forum! All the questions, answers, videos, diagrams, etc. helped me to make it through a mild GA winter night (low 31°F), my first hang.
The new hammock's here! The new hammock's here!...Things are going to start happening to me now.
Count me in!
Thanks for all the warm welcomes! The Jacks’R'Better 3 Season Special has just been ordered, so, hopefully, it won't be long before I can sleep on it! :woot:
After I suggested buying a hammock, my wife replied, "Why don't you sleep on it?":confused:
The noise made while leaking air.
