Wow, this weekend was a blast! My son and I had our OA Ordeal Weekend and made it through. I'm really proud of my son. He was very hesitant about joining OA, but he stepped out of his comfort zone and made it through great.
He didn't ask, but since he worked through the day with such a great attitude, I let him have the jungle hammock to sleep in. He loved it! He said it was very comfortable and even though it started raining about 6:00 Sunday morning, he said he stayed dry until he went to get out of the hammock and the mosquito netting hit his back as he climbed out. I forsee having to buy more hammock tents in my future! lol
I didn't get any pictures this trip, but will be sure and take a camera on the next Troop campout. If it goes over like I expect it to, I bet our Scouts will be planning a fundraiser to purchase hammocks for the Troop!
One of the adults there mentioned using ratchet ties on the trees instead of ropes. Does anyone have any experience or suggestions?
