    Double hang with the Granddaughter tonight

    My Granddaughter has been pretend camping for long enough, so I promised her i would take hammock camping when she turned 6. Well the time has come! Little back yard camp out tonight will be a lot of fun for her, and if she gets scared we can always head inside. I set up two different stands in close proximity, and the Superfly covers both hammocks nicely for a mild summer night.
    I have her set up in my complete DIY rig. I havenít used that rig in a while, but of course had to get in to make sure it was good to go. I had forgotten how comfy it is! Itís a double layer 1.1 oz ripstop homemade hammock, straps with double steel rings for suspension, and a bottom entry bugnet made from curtain sheers per the tutorial someone posted on YouTube...forgot how nice that is as well.

    Anyway, should be a fun time tonight!

    Probably just some marshmallows over the fire...and maybe some not too scary ghost stories!

    73 and muggy right now, but supposed to drop to about 67 I think.

    The granddaughter lasted about 15 minutes before she wanted to go in the house, LOL...That’s okay though, we’ll try it again.
