    Exclamation Waiting at the mailbox.... thinking about a challenge

    Last night I pulled the trigger on a big equipment buy. I bought a 20 degree Incubator with 2oz of overfill and a 20 degree burrow. I also got a Bear Burrito Oven Hammock cover and 2 grizz beaks.

    Now, I'm standin' at the mailbox praying. Can't wait to go out with the new gear and give them a try. Yep, I'll be hanging in the lap-o-luxury. All I gotta do now is figure out how to make a light weight espresso machine..... and how to make a cup holder for my warbonnet.


    Hummm... Cup holders for your hammock? Has anyone ever tried to come up with a hammock cup holder?

    Hey BF5 thanks for the order on your BBO, I'm going to be cutting it in just a little bit. Stay by that mail box, we will have something in it towards the end of the week...depending on the mail man.

    Hummm... Cup holders for your hammock? Has anyone ever tried to come up with a hammock cup holder?
    I have had a Mayan hammock for several years.
    It came with a sling cup holder.
    Will try to locate a pic for you.

    It worked very well for beer

    Hmmm...this gives me an idea. I'm thinking that making a counterbalanced cup holder to hang over your ridgeline can't be rocket science.

    I'd already been thinking about knitting/crocheting a water bottle holder to go over that...this is just the next logical step!

    Awesome idea. Please post a picture. I happen to know a guy who would field test one.

    That might be something that could be arranged. I've gotten a lot of good out of your trail recipes!

    I have used one of those REI Schwag Bags they work great...but you have to make sure you are using a cup with a tight lid, because they like to sit at an angle in the hammock. I just attach it to my RL.
    I miss my 4.8Lb base weight as a ground dweller...But I sure DON'T MISS the ground.
