    Yet . . . will your eyebolt+bolt-tripod version of the turtlelady stand make an appearance ?

    Would like to have a conversation about your development of the tripod eyebolt+bolt connection.
    Expect others will be interested.
    Would you upgrade a version made today ?


    Have the military-Alum-poles for 3tripods+2hammock setup plus snapbuttons. Have not yet drilled.
    Like both hardware and lashing.




    See you in April.

    Sure I'll bring both of mine up. I had one out at the Fall MAHHa. I love to talk and learn new things and meet new folks.

    Any update would be to make it lighter and or more compact. What I read of the military alum poles don't fit the bill. They are 4' long instead of my 6 ft. But weigh almost 40lbs compared to my 18lbs. I believe there is a better solution to the legs somewhere. They alum sounds good for the horizontal.

    I plan on hiking in from Caledonia SP. It would make me more comfortable if at least one would agree to drive me down to pick up my car....there may be more than just me, but most others seem to want to hike after MAHHA....not an option for me.

    Artjrk,

    Collectively, they certainly are not light, but very sturdy.
    We go vanCamping so weight is not a problem; expect to do cross country camping and finding trees for two hammocks may be difficult.

    If you haven't handled some in person I will bring six to the hang : six 4ft poles make three 8ft poles for tripod.

    When (and if) I get the final bugs worked out on my latest project, I'll announce a starting time and volunteer to be the first stop on the list.

    Actually I have something new I've been working on I'd like to show as well. Add me to the tour stop list.
    If I can I'll video the tour stops for a later presentation possibility -2Q

    Folks,
    I just added a new section on the Google Spreadsheet for the 2013 MAHHA Hammock Tour.
    The tour will start at the pavilion on Saturday morning at 10:00 am. With your help, I will try to muddle through the duties of tour guide.

    If you have something you'd like to show off, please add your name to the list.

    It would be great for everyone to get an up close look at some of the latest new things out there.
    Do you own a new Blackbird XLC, Versashelter hammock, Northwoods Wolf hammock?
    Not just new hammock products either. Maybe lightweight setups, homemade setups, new suspension setups, stoves, insulation, etc?
    Please sign up and show us your toys.
