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.

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.
I love Myakka River. That's a beautiful place for a maiden voyage! Hope to see you next month at the Florida Hang!

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!

Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees.
The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy,
while cares will drop away from you like the leaves of Autumn."
