    I've been looking to get into doing some longer cache hikes, including some camping ones. Unfortunately, finding a hammock to hold 400 lbs at the moment is tricky (that's just me, not any of the other stuff.) Working on losing about 100 lbs to start.
    Welcome to to the site. Try the Eno or Treklight hammocks, Their rated to around 400lbs.
    The double hammock is very roomy. www.treklightonline.com

    I'm headed out this weekend to escape the phoenix heat to hammock camp at a lake in the mountains. There are a few hikes around the lake with some caches I plan to grab while I'm there. Like hammocks, geocaches allow me to see places that I might have never thought to go!

    you can save a lot of money and hone your skills by using a map and compass. it may be a little more work but just as much fun. you just need the right map.

    geocaching with a map and compass alone is next to impossible IME.

    I doubt many would debate that learning map and compass skills is time well spent, but a GPS can help in ways that they can not.

    A GPS is merely another tool that can add both fun and safety to your trips. They were never meant to replace map & compass, but to augment them.
    The harder I work, the luckier I get.

    WE have a local tournament once a year here (except this year, as there were some issues with the area we use), and its usually a 3 or 4 day weekend, with most folks staying at the campground. I hung my HH there last year, it was great. That was my first multiday trip in it. It was nice to come back at the end of the day & get into that thing. Two outdoor activities that go hand in hand, IMHO.
