    Thumbs up Video: Tranquil Traipse & Hushed Hammocking

    Got out for an overnighter on Thursday ... my wife had all her girlfriends coming over so I bailed. Carelessly tossed gear in the Catalyst and took off for a local State Park.... Afton ....only 30 minutes away.
    On this video I take a vow of silence .... other than a few m-m-m-'s, ahh's and slurps. Quite a departure for me. It was a quiet trip and I was in a quiet mood and wanted to listen to the piney woods speak. I could hear the breeze whisper through the trees. Windy and cold it were out there. Down to around 28 on the bluff. Sometimes I just like to hear the "sound" of gear being used. Know what I mean?
    Here I show my DIY hammock, DIY Dri-Ducks Weathershield and the WarbonnetGuy style of adjustable UnderQuilt with shockcord channels. Great system! I snoozed like Rip Van Winkle in the hammock. In the hammock by 9:00PM and up a couple of times to enjoy the sounds of Coyotes whupping it up in the forest. cool. Wild Turkeys everywhere too.
    Cook a couple of meals with my MiniBullDesign Krazy Cooking Kit. Tested my MBD Waterlight ... a couple of plastic pop bottles and a candle. Water between the layers to keep the plastic from melting. Brighter than my tea candle lantern although a wee bit bulkier. I made it ...I use it.
    'Preciate you watching. Enjoy my quietude ... for once.

    Another great one Shug

    Your videos never get old man! I loved it. You always seem to come up with another angle the next show. Easy to see how you can do if for a living. Does your show ever take you to the central Ohio area? I would definitely come see one!

    I could hear 'em

    Shug---loved the sounds of the geese and the looks of a slumbering woodland! Those temps you were in---my favorites. Cool enough so that you need gear to stay warm at rest, but warm enough to not have to completely bundle over. There's nothing like being comfortably warm in an environment where it is otherwise uncomfortably cool. Guess that's the Minnesotan in me peeking out.

    You might bill this as a tranquil traipse, but I could hear those "Whoo Buddy!"'s every time you thought them.
