    This is how he pulled the eno out of the stuff sack. I guess it's how they want it set up. I don't have anything to compare it to since this was our first hammock use. We used the large side of the biner on the hammock, and the small side on the straps.

    Please fill out the survey linked in my signature. Recording day hikes is just as important as recording overnight hammock stays since the Florida pilot program encompasses both day and overnight use. Tnx!
    I filled it out. Dunno what it's for exactly

    And I don't really mind the weight, what I'm not an ounce counter yet. The heavier things are for me at the moment the more of a work out I'm getting. I work at my first inactive job in my life and it's really bothering me, my pack I've made is plenty heavy by itself, but I like the strength it has, and I'm almost sure it'll survive longer than most of the civvy packs that are made to be light.

    Thank you.

    Current legislation prohibits the use of hammocks in Florida State Parks. We are currently nearing the end (April) of a one-year pilot program to determine if that legislation may change. The survey helps let those managing the program know that we (hammock hangers) are using the parks and taking advantage of the opportunity to hang legally.

    Every little bit helps.

    Oh, well that's interesting. Didn't know hammocks were not really shined upon at stateparks. Just like one of my other hobbies, metal detecting.

    Sparkfly, make sure you come to the 3rd Annual Florida Hang this MLK weekend at Buck Lake in the Ocala National Forest! Not only tons of different hammock setups to try, but fun, food, contests, hiking, and a raffle. Looks like over a hundred people will be there this year. Don't miss out!

    I've been debating on it. This is my first forum I'm part of where there is a gathering locally to me. But it happens to be the newest forum. I don't know anyone yet... Lol

    Great! When I see you there then we'll both know at least one more person
