    An overnighter.

    What follows is a trip report for a overnighter on October 12/13 2010, on the island Fyn in Denmark.

    I left home at 11:00 hours to catch a bus 20 minutes later for a 16 miles ride from Svendborg to Fåborg. The following video is unedited.

    At this point I had no more video capacity. We had arrived at camp site to find it partly plastered in red tape.











    Anyway we sat up camp. Mosqoito Jungle Hammock and tarp, with DD hammock under quilt and Hennessy Hammock Explorer Deluxe A-zim Zip, with Super Shelter.














    And coked dinner.





    At my 2. night time constitutional the temperature had dropped to 1 degree Celsius = 33.8 degree Fahrenheit (no wind). I added my little green sitting pad under my bottom and was fine again.

    Next day from 9:00 to 13:00 it was crowed with people. Even the press was there so after coffee we left to settle down at a quieter spot for lunch and a view.
















    By the way on the hike home I carried my rucksack all the way.









    Last cooking session.






    Lesions learned:
    Newer wear new shoes.
    The load of the rucksack must rest on your hips, not your shoulders.
    Do stretch outs after a hard day of hiking.

    Nice Trip Report Blazeaway! Really cool photos too, I like.

    Looks like you had a good time out there. Even with the crowds of people the next day. That's the beauty of Hammock Camping I think, the ability to easily pull-up-camp and move to a quieter place as conditions change.

    Lots more flexible.

    Have wanted to tell you for some time. The best coffee is made like this. Take your mug. Put coffee in bottom. Ad boiling water over all the coffee till the mug is nearly full. Let rest for 2-3 minutes. Stir thoroughly. Ad the last water. Enjoy when coffee has settled on bottom of mug.

    Not Shug, but Shug and the tribe.


    Thanks for all of your responses. They are really appreciated.
    But now I got to go.
    Must sleep.
    Heading out early.

    Best,
    Blaze.
