    I hold no grudge against GT as it seems their involvement in this is minimal. Really happy to see they would offer an early availability to members and consider Hammock Forums an influential force in the industry and community.




    I have to say this is one of the best online communities I have ever had the pleasure of interacting with. The sense of comraderie experienced here makes it easy to understand why members (and the owners) can be a little protective at times. Welcome to that community.




    Send me a sample and I'll be happy to provide *lots* of feedback to consider.
    I like Everything about this post! Thanks and I too am happy with the Forum and the family here. I can tell you guys stick together and are protective! But, only the Good Families do right! Thanks again for considerations!

    Fabric weight & suspension is key. My hammock in stuff sack weighs 1.1lbs. and that includes the whoopie slings. I use down insulation too to keep pack weight down even more. You asked about tree straps earlier, I get mine from Paul at AHE.

    I'll confess that Dining Hall might be Haunted, at least it's pretty spooky when your mopping it at night all alone!
    Probably the ghost of my mis-spent youth! I used to mop those floors ( in the daytime ) and run that dishwasher ( HOT dishes came out of that thing!) which was still there a few years ago I think. A youthful indiscretion I confess to: thievery! There were walk in refrigerators/freezers on the far left of the kitchen as you walked in from the front entry side. Being teenagers, we were always hungry even though they fed us 3 squares, but no bedtime snacks. So once when working in the kitchen, I had placed some delicious left over pies in the walk in refrige. Then I unlocked a window. That night, I went out of a window in Friendship Hall ( during study hours "lockdown"), crossed the road to Hill Dining Hall, went in through the unlocked window, and filled some paper sacks with goodies. Got caught red handed coming back into the dorm by the Dean. Who asked me "What's in the bag?". I lied and said "my sack supper". (We would often miss supper when on the athletic teams, and they would have us sandwiches in sacks) Obviously my big old sack of goodies was not my sack supper. But for some reason he let me go, just telling me to get back in my room. I actually could have been in serious trouble not just for stealing the food, but for being out of my room. But he just looked the other way ( not the norm ) God bless him, and in a little while me and some of my buddies were enjoying an unauthorized feast! MMMMMM, good chess pie! So Hill hall is probably haunted from the sheer evil it witnessed from events like that over the years!

    But, not much has changed! The Dairy is Gone now, believe it or not.. they turned it into a Couples Counseling retreat center!

    OHHHH, BIG NEWS! Martha is Rolling in her Grave, BERRY is adding FOOTBALL to their sports programs. How bout that for No Contact Sports!

    what are your thoughts on that!?

    -HK
    Yep, I knew about the Dairy and I think all the other farms I worked at ( Hog, chicken), gone since Chik-Filet took the place over when they closed the high school. At least they have maintained most of the buildings so far. And I knew about the foot ball. Forbidden when I was there, so a big change!

    You know what I would like to do? Stealth hammock camp on Berry campus, maybe up near the House of Dreams on Lavender Mountain! Have you ever done that? Could use a GT pod system!
    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.

    Thanks, I thought so too ( and thought I had better segway), since I had been engaging in major thread drift!

    I would totally be game for some Stealth Berry Hammock camping.. They have some awesome back trails for Biking and Hiking and the Reservoir or the House of Dreams.. If you like rock climbing, i know a good spot for Hammocking by a Hidden Bouldering wall on the left side of the Reservoir. And I have a bag you can use and review if need And some disc for some disc golf too. haha

    That is one of the appeals of the N. GA area to me. I guess why I am still here. So much to do if your into Nature and adventure. Well that and the White Water all around me. Kayaking is actually what got me into Hammock camping! Only real thing that would fit into my Kayak with enough room for all the other stuff you need for an overnight run. Inevitably, the best stuff runs in winter, so I had to adapt a bag to make it hammock compatible, and synthetic in case I got wet I would still be relatively warm. yada yada.. That became my go to system because when I put it together in a pack with a rainfly and a Sea-To-Summit Evac Compression Dry Bag it was a no brainer... I could sprint up a mountain

    What got you interested BillyBob58!? Into the Hammock camping?
