    Our weekend outing

    My 9 yr old and I went camping/fishing last weekend at Lake Russell inthe Chattahoochee Nat'l forest near Mt. Airy, GA. We had a great couple of nights in spite of the noisy neighbors. No luck fishing but we got a lot of comments out our "tent hammocks" like I didn't know they made those things anymore. One guy wanted to know if we stay dry in those things 'cause he just saw a big storm about 1 hour out on his radar. Well five minutes later we were eating supper in the back of the subaru during a nice little thunder storm. But the hammocks stayed dry under the tarps.
    My son slept in the HH on the left any I was in my diy rig with top entry attached bug net and harbor freight special tarp opposite. I attached a couple images of my version of whoopie slings and knot shackles.
    I really enjoy the friendly atmosphere of this place. It's nice to have easy going discussions and exhange of ideas.

    Glad you guys had fun! Hopefully next time you'll get some fishies! Don't know if it will interest you, but I use ear plugs all the time now, makes a world of difference.
