    That's right, I saw the hammock! I just wish I had been there with AS and Hetairoi! I've got to get me one of those boats and learn to use it.

    For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us....that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.

    What kind of kayak do you use? How long of a trip can you take in it gear wise? How do you keep your hammock dry? Great pics, it looks likes alot of fun.

    for me it depends on the trip, short trips on fast moving water I have a dimension typhoon that works great, but it won't hold much gear. For long trips on flat water I'll use a Perception Carolina, it's a touring kayak and can pound out mileage with ease. I also have a Perception Sundance that is in between, it's sleek enough to work well on flat water, but short enough to turn well when I need to.

    AngrySparrow, as usual, took a different approach and got one kayak that is diverse enough for any trip. His Native Watercraft MantaRay has been through class III rapids and made a 70 mile trip on flat water. It holds a ton of gear, is comfortable and very well designed. I've tried it out and I want one (I may have a severe gear habit ... maybe). For long trips I'm taking the Carolina, but the scupper holes and seat on the MantaRay make me jealous.

    Longest trip I've done is 3 days, but we are planning a 10+ day trip and if I can't fit what I need in my Carolina I'm sure I can stuff some things in the MantaRay

    To keep everything dry we use standard dry bags. I use several different sizes and nest them. I find that water will always get in, you take something out, use it, it gets wet, then you put it back in the bag. But if you nest the bags you can keep the stuff that has to be dry separated from other gear that may have gotten wet. I keep my hammock, tarp and sleeping bag in one 10L dry bag and then nest that inside a 30L along with several 5L bags. If the tarp gets wet I'll move it out to the 30L and my hammock and sleeping bag still stays dry.

    If you're TRULY a gear junkie- get into kayaking!

    Oh, and if you're a DIY gear junkie, you can build your own boat. Make that "boats". And paddle. Make that "paddles", they're like hammocks- just one is FAR too limiting! And spray skirts. And racks, carriers, trailers, and goodness knows what else. Hey, you've already got the thread injector and know how to sew waterproof materials. You're halfway there!!!
