    Brandenburg once again...

    it was Herrentag (mens day) in germany and we wanted to do a nice tour

    we took the bikes, some cigars, some beers (not that many) and two hammocks (a DD Travel Hammock and a cheap one with moskito net)



    on our way we had diner in Buckow (a Kneipp Kurort in Brandenburg)

    we drank some more beer



    sat besides a mill



    ate some Pasta with Pfifferlinge (small very tasty yellow mushroom)



    drank again



    and did put up camp



    and you could only see us, if you would trip over us



    I did set up the hammocks and my friend started the fire







    we sat till late in the night, drank some more, smoked cigars and talked

    it was real nice, the DD Hammock was quite good but I'll go for the Blackbird next because the DD had two main issues, the webbing was a real joke and the finish of the hammock wasn't that good

    germany looks splendid and wonderful picture quality
    Dale Gribble: I'm thinking, "new hammock." For me, laying and swaying in a hammock is like a steady morphine drip without the risk of renal failure.

    Now that's hammocking with style I like the gentleman touch - good food, good beer, good company and accommodation looked to be top notch

    Enjoyed your report and pictures thanks.
    After one of those beer the hammock would be the only place I'd want to be.

    Great report Amtieands! Looks like a very good way to celebrate Herrentag! I can't wait to come to Germany, try a few beers and find a good spot to hang my Blackbird!

    Cheers
