    Comfort over a total ul tent is a big reason most sway from the trees.
    If your set up right you can stand up under your tarp, cook your meals, sit or lay up off the ground.
    A total tent system can be lightweight, just be sure to include all your pads, sleeping bag, sore back and hips in the equation.
    Welcome.
    Try to meet up with bloomgorge and that entourage, you'll get a good test session. And he's a good guy.

    @ Packeagle, Yea Ive seen watermonkeys blog, I'm actually subscribed to his youtube channel. good stuff. He is the one who swayed me to the WBBB.
    Good deal, I know there will be three hammocks, a WB and two hh. I think there will be some groundlings as well. There may be more hammocks but it was an open invite to show up with no reply needed. We should be at blind lake at 6 or so.

    Welcome aboard. I won't be making the Pinckney trip, but there will be other hangs through the fall and winter. I think we are coming up with a cool winter hang.

    @bloomgorge, I did the "poto" earlier this spring. If I remember there is a place I can park my car and its just a short 1/4 or so to the campground? I'll try to find it if I can get away for a bit.
    @opie, Awesome! not too many hikers in L town that I know of. I usually take my dog to the park off of Marshall rd. behind the old armory around six pm or so everyday if you ever want to meet up.

    Welcome from another Michiganian. Just remember that weight is an issue, so is comfort. Cost to benefit ratio with hanging from a comfort standpoint is substantial. Comfort is amazing once it is dialed in. Gotta say that I mostly paddle so weight is not as big an issue.

    My son lives in Lansing, nice city. Good luck with your research and welcome to the forums. We might have a southern Michigan hang sometime this winter, will keep you in mind.

    Revolution is about the need to re-evolve political, economic and social justice and power back into the hands of the people, preferably through legislation and policies that make human sense. That's what revolution is about. Revolution is not about shootouts.
