    Lunch time hang.

    Hi All
    I went out the other weekend with my wife Wendy and my daughter Rhiannon to check up on a geocache of mine that need maintenance, so I had to test the new suspension set up for my hammock and my new setup that will do away with the figure 9 for the tarp anyway so I thought we would have lunch in our hammocks and do the testing all in one day.

    Here are some photos of the lunch set up we had but I did not get any of the suspension and tarp set up, once I take some photos I'll upload them.

    So without further ado heeree we are

    Hi Tim
    Yes summer is on the way and soon things will dry right out and become real dusty. In another couple of months and it will be VERY hot out.

    Hi
    Our average summer temps would be about 60 min and about 80 max.

    It gets real hot here in summer and all hiking is off, plus we have no water out in the bush as it is so dry.

    I have to ask- is that in Degrees F or C? 'cause 80F doesn't sound too terribly hot, but 80C would not exactly seem survivable..

    Hi Thats 80F, I had had a look again and it's more like 85F and in peak summer we would get about two weeks of about 104F.
