    Very basic trip out

    Ok a bit of a cheat as the spot is only a few min walk away, but did need to add cord to the XL tarp and try out the new whoopie slings / soft shackles on the Travel hammock.


    Ready for the off, eldest wanted to pack there own pack...





    A bit of the walk




    Found a spot




    Set up - not the best but eldest wanted to be close.




    Soft shackle and whoopie




    If all goes well will pack up using the hammock sleeve and a newly made bishops bag.

    If all goes well that is...

    hanging with the kids

    That's great, man. My daughter loves to camp, too. I have to take her backpacking soon. It's always inspiring to me when the parents take the little ones hanging for a weekend. Thanks for sharing that.

    Well all did not go to plan, but the new set up was OK but a few thinks to iron out.

    Whoopie slings worked great got a fast level set up.

    Soft shackle held out (that's the bit I was not shore of)

    New guy lines were ok I did 4 lengths of 550 para cord with locked Brummel loops and just larks footed them to the tarp...Ok, but if the cord is hanked you cant remove the cord unless you unravel it all as the loops I did were to small. So new one made today with bigger loops.

    The new XL tarp was a big plus when packing up this morning in the rain.

    The New DD travel hammock was as expected spot on and the black mesh work very well

    Should go farther a field next weekend.
