    Ha - funny how you can have these moments where you get a strong understanding of how much of gear head one is!!


    When my wife noticed she asked me - when you go, how much of that do you think you're taking with you?!!

    Put it into perspective for me.

    My awesome friends and gear to enjoy the outdoors. Those two thankful4's were on the thankful list this year!
    I like refried beans. That's why I wanna try fried beans, because maybe they're just as good and we're just wasting time. You don't have to fry them again after all.

    It did put it into perspective for me, and I may have to downsize, but not yet. I do have plans to give my Pastor's grandkids each a hammock for Christmas.
    Happy Hangin!!!

    Had family in town over the weekend. Surprise visit. My young cousin wandered into the workshop/gear room/sewing room/armory and was awed. We had fun talking and me showing him various items and what they are for. We were in process of picking a hammock to set up in the yard for him to try when my aunt came in looking for him. 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
    Leave me alone, I'm only talking to my dog today.

    I may be outnumbered, but never outmanned.

    I have my gear and am mighty attached. And when the day comes - the good Lord and I may need to have a sit down around my wood stove and see what we can do!!

    I was just trying to get everything into perspective, but I said "not yet". Who knows when that time will be, if ever. I am just practicing for the hubby when he asks.
    Happy Hangin!!!

    Now that truly is perspective!


    How is that again - When I go, I'm afraid my wife will sell my gear for what I told her I paid for it!

    You don't have too much gear. Having extras allows others to check out other types of hammocks and tarps. You're providing a public service!
    Keep movin', keep believing and enjoy the journey!
