    Don't have one of those whose name shall not be mentioned either

    I came to within a paycheque of putting in my order for one when I slapped myself silly and muttered something about not being very bendy due to old age and riding too hard. I had nightmares of getting in and out of a space low to the ground and all the videos that would be produced!

    I may have to do another unthinkable and van camp..

    We'll see!

    Are you actually suggesting sleeping on the ground? Because if you are, then I have no choice but to give you a virtual look of derision and slight amusement. Plus...you sir, owe the jar a dollar

    Pretty sure I can go. Just have to check with work when I return from my parental leave. I will bring a tripod for the fire since [o]TTer's has been honourably discharged from service.

    Either location is good for me. Having the washroom facilities nearby is a nice luxury though.

    I'm in as long as there is no rain in the forecast for that weekend. Cold and wet is a combination that I will avoid if at all possible.

    Cheers

    I'm in, tentatively. I'll need to wrestle up some thicker insulation before then, but that shouldn't be too hard. I was disappointed not to have been able to go to the Algonquin hang, so I really want to make it to this one. Just need to check with my better half...

    Thank you Bubba for telling me about the thread.

    Much obliged to Bubba for keeping me posted. I'll have to pass on this one. My better half just had our first little hanger...

    On that note anyone have any good leads on crib hammocks? get em while they're young!
