    Y'all just give 'em the URL here and let the experts take care of the mud divers

    FYI, all the advertising photos I have seen for the more commercial hammocks like ENO and Hammock Bliss show improper setups. You will find much better in the gallery here.

    Shug's YouTube videos would be excellent for presentations at a staff meeting. Serve milk and Oreos and watch it come out their noses

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d7NZVqpBUV0 is the first of a four part series and there are more with reviews and winter camping tips.

    Afternoon Planning Session...

    http://www.hammockforums.net/forum/a...pictureid=3112

    Mt. Bayou Lake, St. Landry, Louisiana

    This set is on a 30 degee slope after the last major storm in the south. My set and gear for the weekend was carried in the Osprey Talon 30 seen hanging from my ridgeline for a combined weight of 23#'s with 2.5L of water in the sleeve.

    Three more hangers joined our ranks after this trip. Apparently, their naps were as comfy as mine...

    Temps- 70 degrees days, 40 degrees nights.
    Hammock- HH Hyperlite w/ 2QZQ zipper mod
    Insulation- HH Supershelter
    Quilt- ALPS Mountaineering Alpine 30 Wide (bag)
    Tarp- OES Maccat Deluxe w/ MYOG ridgeline and tie-outs
    Poles- Biggymart specials (trailsticks work too)
    H4x

    Kinda off topic, but kinda not, Bearpaw and I will be putting on a Hammocking Workshop/Clinic/Class at SoRuck 2012. Should be, ahem, "interesting".
