Ordered 0* Incubator on 28 February, 2015. It shipped today.
Are you still looking for a basic internal frame pack, JCinPA? I have a well used alps mountaineering orizaba 3500 that could probably handle 2 more seasons before needing some maintenance. PM me if...
I like your figure. I always do the same when I DIY. Look at it from every angle, but on paper!
Thank you for posting your findings. I would not have thought to use that set of keywords.
Nice stand! I am surprised to hear your tale played out like it did. Sorry that you didn't meet your goal, but like you pointed out, it is a great learning experience.
It's the only logical progression. Way to go Dutch!
My set did me well for a year. Still in great shape (durable), but I usually have the option for small trees so I used the opportunity for some weight reduction. Now I am using some 3/4" webbing, but...
I'm sure she will understand, but I don't think it would be the end of the world.
I have the coghlan aluminum ultralight aluminum stakes. They are a metallic orange, which works pretty well other than in the fall. The metallic aspect gives it enough of a glimmer to locate, but I'm...
Thanks lostagain for getting the topic on my radar, and thank you Dutch for coming up with this wonderful idea!
I also try to get out once a month. Been doing it for a year now, but I had missed June and November.
My schedule is pretty terrible (12hr swing) and I only get 1 weekend off a month where I don't...
cheep cheep... caw caw!
Not sure of the sound an african or european swallow makes, but would it be able to carry the weight of most synthetic sleeping bags? probably not, but how did these...
Nice work Monkeyboy!
Nice under quilt!
Happy Birthday Paul!
Congratulations on the new gear!
I added tensioners about a month ago when I sewed some mods on the tarp to give doors. I have only used it once, but it kept my doors tight (as well as the rest of the tarp).
Sounds like a good night to test some new gear. Congratulations on making it out unscathed!
I have not tried one, but I think it's an awesome idea. I wish I could speak for the quality of it. Last thing you want is that to back-pressure in your hammock. At least it is the last thing that I...
Nice work everyone!
I agree about the image quality. Very nice pictures.
A very nice quilt as well. Looks like you would have been sweating on a day like that!
Has the element sold?
I've thought about using those emergency blankets in my UQ or TQ as well, but have never had the need. Thanks for asking the question and helping answer mine.
Great work re-purposing that old bag. Looks very comfortable!
Shug had another mod in the middle of a tarp video (link below) that I stole/implemented. He went to the four lower corners of a pitched hex tarp and sewed a tie-out for each corner, which resulted...
Is it bright underneath due to the moonlight that passes through it, or does it somehow illuminate the green CF?
Thank you in advance.
Thank you for the link! Good information.
How do you like it? Does it feel like you're getting too much preasure on your feet, giving flat/pressure spots?
Nice work on the DIY. Looks very...
Thank you for the breakdown. Not much hardware for the DIY stand, awesome! I appreciate the Dutch links and the educating.
Nicely done. More power to the lazy man!
Without the knowledge of this chart, I used the method on the far right. I haven't fallen yet, at least not out of my hammock.
Congratulations on getting some new gear! Always an inspiring experience.
Whoopies are a great place to start! I felt very accomplished when I finished mine and it gave me the confidence to move on to bigger projects. It also got my gears turning for outside the box...
Are all the little baggies and gear to the right of the stove for the hammock stand (aside from the sticker)? That stand is a cool concept for those with an empty backyard.
I like that special edition winter shelter. It looks very durable. Nice work!
It's is about 1.5 hrs by car to Watkins Glen from Binghamton. Not a great place for hiking, but there are some cool views and wooded camp areas near the state park, but you never really leave the...
I see how you didn't have the poncho too tight under the quilt, but do you think it is causing your UQ to compress some (removing some insulating loft)? I like the multi-use gear idea as well, and if...
That looks pretty comfortable and just the right size.
I was raised in great lakes region, where trees are-a-plenty. I first visited my fiance's home in Tucson 6 years ago, and the first thing I thought was, "no trees" At least, not large enough to...
I just keep an eye on the embers if it is windy out. I have used my pipe inside the bugnet once. It felt like a bad idea, but I luckily came out with the same amount of gear I went in with.
Smart little bugger. Nice tuba in the background!
2:48 I thought he was going down. Not trying to make fun of him, just an observation.
I have not yet invested in down for the UQ and TQ, but I do have a down jacket that I picked up last year. It has made me aware of the wonders of down.
Welcome from Cleveland.
Hilarious! I like the sound of this.
I wish I could have gotten out this weekend to test my new peapod setup, but I was lucky to get last weekend off so I went out to Zaleski with a buddy. The temp rose to 57*F before morning. Needless...
I used an eno doublenest for home once I downsized to a grand trunk nano. The double let me stretch out in the middle of the night if I got a cramp, and it didn't restrict my movement too much (more...
Welcome from Cleveland. My best advice: Weight may not seem like a big deal at first, but it will be once you start getting some experience. Keep that in mind when you are making your hammock...
Welcome from Cleveland! Eno gear is good quality and very easy to use. My first setup was a double nest, guardian net and atlas straps. Very comfortable when you want to stretch out.
Welcome from Cleveland! Zaleski is great, but the campsites on the southern trail are more friendly to tenters thank hammockers. There are spots to setup for a hang, but there are more open clearings...
