    Looks like an awesome camp spot! Also love the Zen thing with the rock cairns.

    Great pics! I'm glad your having fun. I look forward to seeing more pics and hopefully a vid. What do the scouts think of hammocking? Did any of them try it?

    Oper8or most of our scout sleep in hammocks. On that hike there were only two that didn't. I even had a boy (who was in the rock cairn pic) who was givin a hennessey safari slept with his dad in the safari. They put the 350 rating to the challenge. Dad's a big boy.
    Other then that my boys have slept in the triple hammock stand for 4 nights. Without any problems. When camping with the same group for the last 10 years I have always come
    back with something new. Last year was the "camp kitchen". The wooden structure in one of the pics. This year it is the hammock stand. I have actually had people give other people tours of my camp site. Lol

    Curious with the hammock stand, what are you using for stakes for the verticals? Rebars?

    Manchego, yes I used 2' rebar on all stakes. The ground here is hard packed and stoney so I needed something strong to go through. I have tried to used 12" gutter spikes but I did not have success with their holding power. So I upgraded. For the most part with the boys I have found that two rebar per pole works. But I would add a third if there is more weight on a single pole then the others. I also have amsteel as all the guy lines. You can play a tune on most of them. Lol all this has worked so far.
