Hey Shug, what kind of carabiner was that and where can a fellow (or fellowrina) get a set?
Entertaining as always, thanks.
Good review there of a good hammock. I like mine quite a bit. Got on of the single layers with net and one without. I do enjoy stretching out for a afternoon snooze.
One thing on the buckles....do not put in a half hitch! It can cause the webbing to be pulled out of alignment in the buckles. That could cause to much load on to little webbing....very bad for staying airborne through the night.
Shug, if you have the Superfly, I'd check out Tendertoes pole mod. Saw it in action at the recent Ohio Hang and it converted me immediately, Superfly should be in the mail today. Really opens it up and you have no worry of the RR damaging the tarp
RIP GORDIE HOWE
Great show as usual. I like the saddle bags on the side. I might add one to side of my old bridge. Keep us entertained till the next time I can join you on a hike.
Knowledge is knowing a tomato is a fruit. Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.
I do pack with mine. Done a good day hike to soot some video of our quilt that's made for it and I took it on my Grand Canyon trip last month.

There is a weight trade off to use it but when you look at quilts like the lynx or RidgeCreek versus others they are able to save weight by being narrower. Then if you were to use your hiking poles for spreader bars they become a weight savings and dual use. So you get closer to a wash versus hiking with a BB for example. Against a small light GE then no your probably not saving any weight but the comfort for me of the RR is enough to justify it.
