Hasnt seen me in few years and thinks I am crazy. She asked why one person would need so many hammocks, sleeping bags/quilts, rucksacks, and various other items. I told her so that I was covered for all different weather types, terrains, styles of camping and have enough to help a buddy out if they need to borrow something. She just shook her head and muttered something about"crazy outdoors types". To make my point my cuz and I grabbed our choices and set up in the yard. Even built a small fire to cook hotdogs. He loved it all. Believe we have a new hanger in the making.

    And Baja,will be more than happy to help take stuff off your hands. Help you with your marital bliss and make my family think I'm even stranger
    I love it when my family thinks I'm crazy or strange...and I try hard not to give them any reason not to. My gear corner is growing and may have to move into my flyfishing room (yep, I said room) soon...

    Maybe a stoopid noob question...does your husband not share your passion for gear and the outdoors?

    you know each trip is different, therefore each piece of gear has its place, and if thats what needed to bring harmony and peace within so i am peaceful on the outside, then i am being not only personally but socially responsible,,,,so i tell my family..What do YOU mean its too much gear????

    My wife asked me this weekend about a top quilt she hadn't seen before. Fortunately she hasn't noticed the bottom quilt, new backpack, etc. She thinks we're all crazy to be so addicted to this stuff, and I can't understand why anyone wouldn't be addicted to it.
    Never tell people how to do things. Tell them what to do and they will surprise you with their ingenuity.

    John Clark Monks was a Chesapeak pirate who actually did that....sorta. His casket was suspended in a crypt because his last wish was to never step on land again. ..of course the casket was also completely filled with rum. It's an odd hammock, but still a hammock technically!

    Now that's funny right there!

    Well, ok, they're right you can't take it with you when you go, but then again you can't take the money it cost either. And when you go, you'll think about what great times you had in those things, and so you will go with a smile on your face. That surely must be worth everything.
