Buddy and I are looking forward to it.
When and where do you have in mind?
I used a Noah's 12 for years and always in A-frame and porch mode. The ends can be closed off but I like more room. I used a Grizzbeak on one end to seal out the wind and rain and that worked pretty...
Welcome to HF from Athens. Look for another Georgia group hang coming up this month.
Here's some pics of another fine hang. Thanks to everyone who made this another fine event.
Ghostly visitors to camp....
Waiting on a call from the insurance folks and it's off to the piney woods! See y'all there.
David and I will be there but Marie has decided to have a girls night in with her daughters.
Great looking job on your tarp. I like to doors on just one end, good coverage plus ventilation. I use a set of Grizbeaks on one end of my 3 season tarp.
We'd be glad to have you join us! It's car camping with a short walk to the camp area. You can have your pick of trees, there'll be plenty of them. Hope your wife is doing better....
The small S hooks go into the small holes on the top of the end cap. They are used to attach the tarp to the stand....
Another great looking trip. I been enjoying the Instagram pics! Such a beautiful area!
Troop 36 in the early 70's. I got my hiking merit badge walking those sandy forest roads and trails. We moved to PA. and I joined troop 728 and learned to love the mountains and snow camping. Good...
Thanks for sharing the adventure. When I was a Scout in Orlando we did a lot of camping in the Ocala NF. Wish we had hammocks back then.
look forward to checking it out at the hang.
Another fine adventure! Thanks for sharing. Loved the Minnesota Smith and safety meeting reference. Hadn't heard those in a while.
Another fine adventure with Mr. B. Do y'all ever encounter any rattle snakes and how does Baxter react to them. I've only come across one while hiking with Buddy but it turned out OK. It rattled far...
There are four tie outs on each side so a tight pitch can be made. I don't have panel pulls due to using an internal pole mod for support and structure. Using the tie outs in the middle would have...
I love my 13 X 10 rectangular tarp. Not too heavy, great coverage for me and the pup and has a variety of pitching options. YMMV
Now that's a tarp! Congrats to the Meck's and Squidbilly for a fine creation.
I used a pad for many a year but once the switch to an UQ was made........there's just no going back after being wrapped in down goodness.
Sounds like a great bit of kit you're putting together. Best of luck on their maiden voyage.
I like the term Camocking. It should be done whenever and where ever the need arises.
Now that the weather is cooling off there will be more group hangs in the works. Hope y'all can make some of them.
It was a serious combination of tarp and stand joojoo!
Those are some great views! That may have been the last bundle of wood left from all the others they brought in. Gotta like those midweek trips.
Not my story but....there's a buffalo in my hammock!
Camocking...........I like that!!!
Welcome to HF from Athens. We're having a group hang at Ravens Cliffs the last weekend of this month. Come out and join us if you can. Great group of folks to share a campfire with.
As long as you're willing to keep your lower half covered the HUG will work fine. On those hot summer nights that's not always easy to do but this time of year should be no problem.
I use a Fronkey style bug net but leave the bottom open so it hangs to the ground. With his bag under the hammock Buddy is surrounded by the netting and has room to move around....
While it wasn't as large as your Kauri trees, it was big enough to have done some damage had it fallen the other way....
Set up my new Hammeck stand to test it out and enjoy some of this rainy weather pattering on the tarp. One of my original hammock trees died several years ago and a new hang spot was made. We've been...
if you want to avoid all the Octoberfest traffic in Helen here's the directions
From Cleveland take hwy 129 N. Make a right onto 75A. After you pass Smithgall Woods / Dukes Creek make a left onto...
Say it ain't so! Georgia will loose another good one. At least you'll be closer than the Ox. Hope to see y'all there.
Looks about the same for Georgia. My RBR tarp is set up to test a new Hammeck stand. Bring on the rain! RBR will keep us dry....
Since Gene has his new toy don't you deserve a little something for yourself?
The tarp is now under the pole and the fit is good. After further inspection there was a small bit of water on the pole under the tarp that had leaked in but not dripped yet. Thanks for everyone's...
Last night worked out great and the rain held off for later today. I'll try turning the end cap plugs around so the tarp hooks are on the bottom and rig the tarp under the pole today and see how that...
Thanks for the heads up on the tarp! I'll play around with different set ups in the morning if it stops raining long enough.
The day before my Hammeck Stand arrived the sky darkened up and we've had a solid week of rain. The sun came out for a few hours today and I was able to get it set up. It's supposed to start raining...
Last year's costume contest winner!!
Thanks for the post LazyBee. Looking forward to it!
Georgia - Oct.30- Nov 1 Raven Cliff Falls
It's all a matter of choice but I really like them on my winter UQs. The extra weight of the down in the UQ tends to make the middle sag a bit. By using shock cord and a cord lock I can put the shock...
If you haven't already, check out The Ultimate Hangs Hammock Camping 101. Lots of good resources.
Check out this section of The Ultimate Hang and look at parts 1,2 and 3. Hope this helps
What a great place for your first hang! Looks like y'all had a great time on your trip. Beautiful scenery and great looking hang sites.
I've switched to cinch bugs and really like them. They've allowed me to hang in places that the whoopies were too long for and have great adjustability and ease of use.
Off to a good start. Looking forward to more of the adventure.
Looks like a great trip in a really nice location. Those are some serious stickers.
