    Number 70. Family health issues still keeping me local, but we had a heck of a storm forecast, so I tossed up my main tarp and my first ever hammock (notice how faded she is!). It poured, thundered and had me questioning the safety of hanging from the tallest tree in the area! But it was a wonderful night. The family issue that's been keeping me from traveling has finally resolved and I hope to be getting some better hangs going forward.

    71. Broke out my original hammock again. Faded and repaired, but still a solid piece of gear. If I'm backpacking, I always take my freebird, but the Roaming Gnome is probably a skosh more comfy.

    #72. Six years. In a crappy drive-up-camping state park. Pulled in late in a heavy rain. Had the tarp rigged in a couple of minutes, then took my time setting up inside. Spending a nice night listening to rain on the tarp.

    I've loved this challenge. It's been a driving force to get me out and test my gear in a lot of different conditions. Thunderstorms, heavy snow, high heat, bugs. Met a lot of great folks and got comfortable being alone in the big scary woods at night.

    Not sure if I'll continue posting, but I'll keep up the challenge. Lookingforarrows started this thread, but I'll renew his challenge. Don't wait for nice weather. Get out and see what you and your gear can handle!

    Keep posting. I started in 2018 because of this post. I have since had almost one trip per month with my friends. We're quite fortunate to be able to do that.
    Just like you say. Weather isn't an obstacle. We set aside time at least a month in advance, so we never know what kind of weather we face.

    This friday is this month's trip. I look forward to it!
