    Just Stumbled In

    This August I took a 75 mile canoe trip in the Voyaguers National Park. I wasn't sure we'd always get a campsite, so I looked for gear that could be "pitched" on the Canadian Shield (rocks). Bought a WBBB and now I'm hooked. The advantages of a hammcock made the trip all the better.

    Putting a hammock under a tarp is far better than a tent. It is so easy to access gear without having to open a tent and let the bugs in. Easy to get out in the evening to answer the call of nature. Love the shelf in the BB.

    Most of my hanging will be around water (land of 10,00 lakes). The view from the hammock on a northern lake is breathtaking. The far shore of the lake photo is Canada.

    I'm a little Minnesota proud, but think about this. Shug is from a southern state, but lives in Minnesota.

    Welcome to HF from Georgia! Looks like you've put together a nice set up. Nothing like getting out from the walls of a tent and enjoying a room with a view.
    Everyone ought to believe in something....I believe I'll go set up the hammock!

    The tarp is an 10 x 12 Globe Skimmer Ultralight tarp from Equinox. When traveling by water with no portages, I can take a little more weight and the extra space under the tarp is a luxury. Looking at a smaller one with doors for hiking and winter camping.

    I snowmobile in the winter and I think it would be a blast to hang on a trip rather than in the hotel.
